I have added a character field titled "Delivery Area" which allows us to select the states to which this client delivers products. I have set the field length to 150. I have then created a Multi-Select drop-down list of all US states and selected that as the drop down list for my Delivery Area field. I tested this by selecting 26 states from my drop-down list (not an uncommon occurrence for our clients). When I try to save it, I get an error message "Field Length has been exceeded. Value cannot exceed 50 characters." I then noticed when going back to check the field length that I can no longer pick a field length. Is that because of the drop down list? Am I limited to onlly 50 characters when using a drop down list or is there something else I cou?
