So I definitely made a mistake in creating the structure of a site.  I'd like to change library columns to site columns.  Is that something that can be done?

Hi, You can create a 'Site Column' based on the library column, but the problem would be to transfer the data from the library column to the site column. This cannot be done by out-of-box and it has to be done by custom code.

Could this be accomplished with Flow/Automate? What about version history? Would it be a matter of having the flow iterate through each version?
