change existing variables's data type from text to drop-down?
I would like to be able to change a field's type as well.

Unfortunately, there is currently no way to convert a field from one type to another. That being said, we would be more happy to let our product team know that this is a feature you would like to see added to TrackVia - we see how it would save you a lot of time!
In the mean time, you can export the table, delete the field, add a new drop down field with the appropriate selections, then import to update that field. If you have any questions about this process, please let us know!
