Magento 1.9 Edit Attribute issue - Unique values

I'm trying to edit the attribute "description" in the Admin panel. I need the "unique value required" to be set as "no". However the current setting is set as YES and grayed out so I cannot change it.

 

Is there some way that I can change this so that the "description" attribute does not have to be a unique value?

@sunhochoiNormally or out of the box it is not unique. Someone may have does it via database. You would have to do the same. I am not sure if you are a developer. If you are you can inspect the element and edit the value to 'Yes' selected and save the attribute. This should resolve your issue. If you cannot achieve it by updating via inspect element then you would have to do it via setting the flag in database directly.

Thank you.  I am not a developer, but know just enough to break things!  I got this explanation on a different forum, which I am assuming is similar to your answer but easier to understand for someone like me.    Thanks for your help!  Problem solved!
