Default How can I increase the pull down field option beyond 25 items?

I am using Microsoft Office Word 2003 in Tables format. We use a series of
character blocks to represent a model number for a large variety of model
numbers for our products. Each of these character blocks contains a "Drop
Down Field Option" that seems to have a limitation of 25 characters. We need
to enter more charaters to meet our model code scheme. How can this 25
character limit be increased?
Thanks,
Bob

"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the
strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them
better. The credit belongs to the man in the arena, whose face is
marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly...who knows
the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself in a
worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high
achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while
daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and
timid souls who have never known neither victory nor defeat." - TR
