I would recommend a Virtual List technique. A table with a global field that has a numbered ID field that uses the GetValue function with the value equal to the ID. This is a very simplified explanation, but there is info out there on this. There are also many ways to do this.
you can add a vertical scroll bar to a field in which to scroll. It is on the Inspector, right under the "Control Style". A dropdown list or pop up menu wouldn't work because the entire list is one piece of data. dropdowns are taking the data from multiple fields and putting them in the drop down.
The virtual list technique is a great technique too. Many people use this to put the data into a table that shows up on a portal in the record's view. That would work too. It does contain a bit of a slow-down as this technique would re-grab the data for each new record.
Nice!! I bet I looked at the scroll bar option a million times and just didn't realize it was there.
I was playinfg with the virtual lists, but I couldn't spend much time on it right now, but io will play with them some more i see a lot of areas they will come in handy.
