String too long in PICTURE "@M"

 String too long in PICTURE "@M"


In general I will allow the user to create his/her own list of choices by
defining a "fruitlist" of his/her own.  It appears that the limit to this
list is around 255 characters, and then a "String too long" error is
generated under Foxpro 2.5b DOS.

Has anyone come up with a way around the string length limitation of such
a picture clause?  I really don't want to change things to "popup" type
of GET statements.... Thanks in advance.
