Maximum drop down list size - Post ID...

I have a directory that has 731 entries - 731 lines in a txt file each of which has tab separated fields: LName FName Family# Resident name. The filesize is 42KB. When I try to ad it as a dropdown list it will not display in formbuilder. This is also true if I convert the list to CSV.

Is there a filesize or list length limitation for dropdown lists in Web Form Builder?

More importantly, is there a workaround that anyone has employed to load in a larger dropdown list?

Right now I have included the list as a scrollable lookup table in a window that you can see here: http://mfabenefit.org/raffledonations/ in the middle of the form. Problem is that right now someone would have to look up a family listing and then manually input their family #. It would be better if the family could just be selected in a dropdown.

Thanks for looking,

Hi James,
Can you share your csv list? Also your Form Builder .fb file.
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Eric,
Can I email it to you? It would not be wise for me to share the directory publicly - if you send me an email at mailto:jimcapraro@yahoo.com I'll respond and attach the csv list.

Thanks,

I have a solution for ya. Were going to add a radio button to your scrolling html table to the left of the MFA number and I will use JQuery to select the mfa number and insert it into your MFA input.

It works here.
