    Word 2010 Dropdown Fields

    I found that there is a limit of 25 items in a dropdown field list, but is there a limit for characters per item? Also, what special characters are allowed. I know that "&" is now allowed.

    Look into using the building blocks gallery tool if you don't need a protected form. You could have (virtually) unlimited choices both as far as number of entries and length of entries. See Chapter 44 of Microsoft Word 2010 Bible by Herb Tyson.
