If you want the custom field to just be set to the issue created date you should be able 
to write a simple script.

Something like (please test this first):

UPDATE eventum_issue_custom_field SET icf_value_date = (SELECT iss_created_date FROM 
eventum_issue WHERE iss_id = icf_iss_id) WHERE icf_fld_id = $FLD_ID

replacing $FLD_ID with the correct field ID. Please backup all your data first, I haven't 
tested that query but it should give you a starting place.
