 VFP5 - List/combo boxes with > 253 entries

Some time ago, I discussed a problem I was having with List boxes and someone (I
apologise that I forget who it was) hinted to me that there was a known problem
with list/combo boxes around about ListIndex 253-255 (my lists are often several
thousand long).

I now see that it is a 100% reproducable error when one selects entries around
the 254 mark. I have found no workround.

Is there any way I can find out the status of this error? Is it acknowledged by
Microsoft? Is there, in fact, a workround?

TIA

Alan

As Cathy says, it is a problem.  The workaround doesn't help if you populate an
array for use in a dropdown list, so the only way I've found to deal with this is to
use a browse -- populate the browse same as you would the list or array, and pop it
up in place of the list.  It's a clunker, but it works!.
