Change of plans… From calculation to auto-enter calc

Once we got into something, I discovered that one of my calc fields would be nice to be able to over-ride the value. So, I want to change it from a calc field to an auto-enter calc with the same formula. The solution is in production, but I have plenty of opportunity to work on it in the evenings when all of the users are off.

 

If I just change the field definition, I lose the value… which effects other fields. Is there a way to just change it, but keep that value?

Otherwise, is there an easy way to force that field to evaluate in all records?

 

My plan was to just change it, then show all and do a Replace Field Contents with that same formula.

 

Just curious if anyone has a better way.

 

Thanks!
