   * **Uses a List of Values:** determines whether data for the field is entered in a standard empty text field (if set to NO) or as a list of preset values (if set to YES). If a list of values is chosen then the Maximum Number of Characters is ignored as all Value List values are allowed a maximum length of 64 characters. Value List would be useful for stores selling products with an attribute that has a limited range of possible values. For instance, a store selling models could create a field for Scale using a drop down list of the different scale sizes of the models that they sell. This could make it easier for users to search on products since they don't have to guess how the data might be entered (was the scale entered as 1:43 or as 1/43?) but can simply choose what they want from a list.    * **Uses a List of Values:** determines whether data for the field is entered in a standard empty text field (if set to NO) or as a list of preset values (if set to YES).

-<note important>​Once this value for the new extra field is set it cannot be changed. A text field must remain a text field and a list field must stay a list field. If you set the wrong value for this question you will have to delete the field and create a new one.</​note>​+<note important>​Once this value for the new extra field is set it __**cannot**__ be changed.

   * **User May Select Single or Multiple Value sets the type of list field.** The values for products for the two different types of list fields are stored in a totally different format in the product_descriptions database file so once you set this type it cannot be changed. Single Select Lists store the product value as an integer which is simply a pointer to the actual value in the value list file. Multi-Select Lists store the product value in a text field as a series of pointers separated by a delimiter. How many pointers are stored depends entirely on how many values are selected for the product. If you set the wrong value for this question you will have to delete the field and create a new one.   * **User May Select Single or Multiple Value sets the type of list field.** The values for products for the two different types of list fields are stored in a totally different format in the product_descriptions database file so once you set this type it cannot be changed.
