How to Set a Default Value for A Custom text Field that's already created

HI  -

I created a text field and now I want to have it default to "no".  There's no data in it yet, so is there a way to edit the field and set the Default value?

I feel like I've done this before, but I can't remember or find it.

 

Thanks -

Sara

Setup > Objects > Find the object where the field exists and Click on the object name > Find the Field  and click on the Field Label Name > click the Edit button

 

You wil see a section called 'General Options' . In here you can set Default Value.

Thank you.  It's so obvious - don't know how I missed it.
