Swap Field Error

Someone imported 999 new contacts into the DB - this person accidentally assigned the company name into the wrong field. I am trying to swap the two fields and I get an error that reads "limit to list fields are not valid as a target field"
what does that mean exactly ?

Re: Swap Field Error

Within Tools > Define Fields, double click the target field > click Next to get to the 'Customize field and list behavior' screen, uncheck the 'Limit to List' option, click Finish. Attempt to Swap.

Note: Always back up the database before making mass updates (File > Backup > Database).
