Is it possible to assign a coded value domain to a field already populated with data?  Does it depend on whether the existing data matches values in the domain?  If it's not possible to do this, is there a workaround, e.g. creating a new field, assign the domain, move data over and delete old field?

You should be able to use the Assign Domain To Field tool to do this.

After assigning the coded value domain - if there are values that do not match then the actual value will be shown in the attribute table instead of the coded value.
