When you make changes to custom fields, you should reindex for the changes to reflect on existing data.

You can either do that through the Administration section or you can reindex a single project as well.

See the documentation for more details.

thanks for your voluble suggition sir

you did not delete the custom field, you just changed the way, you select the values.

So, as long as the custom field or existing options from that field are not deleted, the "old" values in the issues still remain.

thank you so much for ur suggition sir
