    Value List breaks down Single Field Single Record

    Well, isn't that interesting. I have a value list with a four digit unique ID key, with a show-also field that has the long text entries. I had expected the four digit field to be included in the character count, but apparently, it is not! Thanks for the clarification. Kirsten M.

    Value List breaks down Single Field Single Record

    I have had occasion to use long entries in value lists also, when creating a value list from a field. By trial and error, it appears that Filemaker will only recognize entries if they differ in the first 64 characters. If you have two or more values in the list that are longer than 64 characters, and are different only after character 64, the values will be treated as identical, and only the first instance will show up in the value list based on that field. For example: Source field: This is an incredibly amazingly long value entry in a value list - 1 This is an incredibly amazingly long value entry in a value list - 2 This is an incredibly amazingly long value entry in a value list - 3 Will show a value list with the entry: This is an incredibly amazingly long value entry in a value list - 1 I have yet to find a way around this; it has been occurring as of FileMaker Pro 3.
