    Thanks.

    In general, increasing the maximum size of an existing value set (or replacing your value set with a bigger one instead) does not cause any problem with your existing flexfields data so long as your new maximum size is still small enough to fit in the underlying flexfield table's segment columns. However, you should never change to a value set with a larger (or smaller) maximum size if your value set is Right-justify Zero-fill, since 001 is not the same as 0000001, and all of your existing values would become invalid.
