Field Type Change Impact on Report Type

Hi

I am changing a Checkbox field to a Picklist field. This field is being used in a Report Type. When I select this field in the Report Type it is showing that the Default State: Unchecked. After chaning the field type to Picklist the Report Type is still showing the same information. I removed the field from the Report Type and placed it again but the same outcome is there. Please can you advise how to fix this?

Hi Umer,

Hope you are doing well!

If you obeserve in the report type, all the fields have that information saying "Default value: "Unchecked" / "Checked" it doesn't depend on the field data type. It basically says if the field should be default included in the report when you choose that report type as a column. Like for example, try to create a new report using the report type you created, you will see some default fields coming up as columns. If you cross check this page you will see their "Default value:Checked" . To update this value double click on the field in your screenshot(Report type page) it will show you popup as below where you will be given option to choose the checkbox.
