Hello,

You can increase the field legth by doing the following.

 

1.Go to tools define fields.

2. Choose the field you wish to change

3. Click next it should bring you to a screen that says Custimize field behavior. Here you should see a box that says field length and this is where you can change the length.

 

Hope this helps

Hello,

What is the name of the field you are trying to change and what is the data type?

Hello,

Sorry about the earlier information so yes u are correct there is a max limit for adding to the drop down list. The limit however should be sixty four if we are talking about the same thing. that is you adding a new item to ur drop down list.
