Hi,

 

It is not possible to convert a text field into lookup.

The work around will be creating a new lookup field and populating the data with users.

No, it is not possible.

But, I assume ModeratorID__c contains record IDs?

Maybe you can create the lookup field and then copy the value from the text field to the lookup field?

I think it should work.

Nope , thats not possible.

 

If ModeratorID__c contains record IDs, you can create the lookup field and copy the values from the text field to the lookup field

 

Hope it Helps
