I have a new document library created in SharePoint 2007 and I have metadata associated with each entry. These fields are mostly simple text fields. One such column is a drop-list that reads from another list in the same site collection. It works great within SharePoint. I have problems if I create a file via Word.

When I click New, Word 2007 opens and I can see the Document Properties from the server above the writing page. When I click the drop-list in question, I get a subset of my list. I should see about 400 entries, but it ends after 100 entries. Is this a strict limitation or can it be edited? Thanks

I should have known this when the amount of entries was 100. My issue was that the drop-list is reading from the default view for my list (Item limit 100). I modified the default view and then upped the Item limit to over 400. I want back to click New. All the entries are now in the drop-list.
