I made a new field 150 characters in length which is enough for data i use in the field. I created drop down list and selected- Auto Add to list. In drop down list values I can only get 64 characters. I need more than 64 characters. So I thought that by making field length and selecting Auto add to list - I could type what I need on a new record and then it will add to the list. No Luck- I get an Invalid Value base on pick list type. Am I limited to 64 characters? What good is Max field length- 450 is it? when field has these constraints? Who would ever use all 450??.
If this cant be overcome- say I broke the field into two separate fields and essentially make required sentences by connecting the two- If I was doing a word processing doc could I add the two field together and have them "collapse themselves together" on paper to merge as one cohesive sentence??? - Regardless of length of either field data?
I am using ACT V11.0
