Moving from ACT 2000 to v10. I have fields in ACT 2000 that the drop downs are quite long and import into letters, etc.
In v10- I am entering the new drop down and it stops me- This ( using X's) is an example - XXXXX XXXXXXXXXXXX XX XX XXX XXXXXXX XXXXX XXX XXXXXXXXX XX XX- Thats it -- I need at least 40 more characters - Act 2000 let me do it- I even changed the field length to max 450 and it still stops me at the same place- Help!!

Unfortunately there is a limit in Act! 2008 to the length of the drop down list values (63 characters). Within Act! 2008, there is no work-around available to give you a drop down list with longer values (appears you need at least 100 characters).
This limit has been removed in the current version of Act! (2010). I've successfully tested it with drop down values of over 120 characters in length.
