Field not changing type

Is there a reason why an indexed 32 bit integer will not change to text?  I
recently had the need to include letters as part of a code that was
previously just numbers, however, while the file now states character 20,
the field does not actually convert.  The field in the windows keep saying
32 bits, and if I try to include a letter it evaluates as Zero.

I have reorganized the data, drop indexes, etc.  the file say CH 20, the
field on windows keeps the 32 bits.

I'm puzzled.  Any insights?
