Some of my relation fields to display contain lengthy text
elements. This makes the dropdowns on the insert screen
rather wide. I'd like to see the option to abbreviate them
in a manner similar to the browse screen.

Thanks,
Michael

    Garvin,

    it's ok to use LimitChars, however:

    - why show each item twice? This takes too much space I think.
    - If you absolutely want to show twice, maybe do not sort
    the foreign key list by display field, but by foreign key.
    - this should be done also in tbl_select.
