Changing a text answer to a numeric answer in a Survey123 Connect survey

I created and published a Survey in Connect and then tried to create a Dashboard from the data I collected. I set a facility rating using the select_one answer and then set the appearance as a Likert for ease of use for the mobile user. Unfortunately I was unaware that this would produce a text answer instead of a numeric value and now I have 30+ records stored this way. 


1. Is there a way, post publishing, to alter this text string to a numeric value?


2. If not, I can make a copy of the survey in the Connect program, but is there a way to import the data from the original survey into the new/copy so I don't lose data or have to reproduce it?


I have photos included in the survey and I am not sure how to go about making a change like this. I know that once a survey has been published, changes to the survey can be a hassle. 


Any detailed help would be very helpful
