I have created a field type select and now realize that I am missing an options radio field.
Such as:

Missing |C

However, I already have MANY users' profiles on the site and do not want to lose their data.
How can I add this missing option without losing the users' data in this field?
Thank you,
I believe I can probably add it at the end of the list but it belongs in the middle.

It looks like if I add for example:


it will not affect the data on the users' profiles who have already selected a different option.
Can you confirm before I implement on my live site? I did a test on one site and it worked.

Thank you,

sorry for late reply, you can also do something like:

in the DB will be stored value so 1,2 or if you keep the same value for options A (value:1),B (value:2) and D (value:3) you will not have any problem.
