I am having trouble updating a field from text- multiple choice to multi-select text.  I keep getting the following message "Cannot convert field to Multi-select Text. The following options are longer than 40 characters:Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander"  I have of course shortened the choice multiple times but this message returns every time. Any suggestions?

Try creating a new field and exporting the data and re-importing the data from the data field into the new field.
