[SOLVED] Custom Field creation


I know that this subject has been discussed many times in the discussion forum. But, I still have some confusion. I have created a lot of custom fields inside the forms in the ERPNext module. And, the version of ERPNext is old. I am just wondering whether the bench update/upgrade will create a problem for those custom fields. I just read somewhere that I should have created an app and added the line, Fixtures = [“Custom Field”] etc inside hooks.py. My question is:

  1. Can I do it with the existing fields as they already have data?
  2. Will the bench update remove my existing custom fields?
  3. What procedure should I follow?

Thanks a ton for all the support extended so far.
