Is there data loss on changing a custom text area field to text area long field?

Any input appreciated.

 

Thanks,

I think there would be no loss if the size of long text area is greater than text area(usually long text is greater tough).

Hi,

 

There won't be any data losss as you are migrating the field to a longer length field.
