Changing an Autonumber field after it has been used

    I created an Autonumber field through Power Apps for the Quote entity.  The sales team wanted it in the format of HE-XXXX.  It was working great except now they want the number to be HEXXXX (no dash).  I modified the field to not have the "-."  What I don't know how to do is to update the existing ones to have the new format.  Is that possible?  Thanks.

    Since the end result of the Auto Number is just a Text Field you can simply export the list, make the changes and re-import it.
