Converted text field to container and lost entered text

I'm pretty new to Filemaker so any help is appreciated. Using Filemaker Pro 17.

 

In the process of trying to troubleshoot another issue, I accidentally converted a field type from text to container. I tried exit the edit layout mode without saving the change, but it still changed to a container field anyway. When I re-entered the edit layout mode and tried to change the field type back to text, all the information in the field for each record disappeared.

 

Is there any way to recover that information?
