document information panel metadata not loading full values from lookup column RRS feed

  • Question

  • Good day,

    We are running a WSS 3.0 site with SP2 [2007].  We have a word template [2007] that has various metadata from the list available for users to select when they create a new item.  However, a lookup column in the list is not displaying all the available options in the template's document properties panel for selection.  We are getting 100 when there should be 178. 

    Is there a limit on the amount of values the template can bring back from the lookup column?  And if so how can we get around this so all the values in the lookup are displayed in our word template metadata?

    Thanks, as always any suggestions are appreciated,
    Hyde

  • Hi Hyde,

    You need to find the list which the library lookup column looks from, then enlarge the Item Limit option "Display items in batches of the secified size" value to 300 (100 is by default) in original list default view settings page, then the lookup column should show 178 itmes in Office Word infomation panel field.

    Thanks
