Change container field into a text field without losing text?

Post

     Essentially, here's my problem. Someone accidentially created a field as a container field. We didn't realize this until recently. So we can't search text in there. But all the data in that field is text. What's the easiest way to convert that field into a text field, or copy the data over into a new field? 

     The only way I can see to do this is to go line by line and copy and paste the text into a new container. But it's hundreds and hundreds of entries. Any ideas?
