SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:

• You have a column in a custom list that has 19 items or more on a Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 site.
• You add this column in the custom list to a document library as a lookup field.
• You select the None value for the lookup field after you upload a document to the document library.

In this scenario, the None value is empty. Also, to select items in the combo box, you have to double-click them instead of single-clicking them.

CAUSE

This issue occurs because it is tedious to look up items in a combo box that contains a long list. The control lets you type the value of the list item that you want to look up. The control automatically preselects in the list as you type.
