Moving fields in issues

If I remove a custom field from one tab and place it on another will all the information across Jira that is currently in that field be deleted?

I need to reorder the layout of our issues but I am worried I will lose all current information?

Thanks

You will not lose any data unless you delete a custom field. Moving fields to other tabs does not affect any data within those fields.

The tabs are purely display things. Containers for dividing up field displays. The data for the field will not be touched at all.

You can safely delete a tab full of fields, then add the fields back on to another tab, and you'll lose nothing.
