    What exactly do you mean by "picklist"?

    Can you please give us a verbal or visual example of this if possible so we can assist you better?

    I'm creating a registration form for employees to fill out and for one of the fields, I would like to have limited options prepopulated in a drop down list.

    Example: Which fruit do you prefer?




    In may actual case, the list will be quite long. Perhaps 40 specific options for the field "Job Title"
