I want to be able to have a drop down that may have 3000 or so entries in it and allow the user to select one and it populates into a text box and then they select the next one and it populates into the same text box but below the first. They could select up to 4- 6 names from the drop down.
Is this possible?Page URL:

Yes it is possible, you just need to change your dropdown widget's options as below;
Enable multiple selections and select how many fields is visible, then your submitters select multiple options with ctrl+ click.
Here is the result
On the other hand you may use our Multiple Selection widget
I hope it helps

Thanks, I was hoping they would show up one per line. Is there a way to put a CRLF on these?

There isn't, but you could try using a widget, please check the following widgets:
Dual Listbox widget: https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/dual_listbox
Or, the Visual Multi Select widget: https://widgets.jotform.com/app/visual_multi_select

Thanks I think the widget would work but there must be some limitation on the number of options because there are 2777 I am trying to put in and when I press save widget it does nothing.
Is there a limit?

Looks like somewhere between 2000 and 2500 entries is when the widget fails to update. Is there a way around this?

I was able to add 3,000 options on my demo form.
It seems that limit is related to number of characters inside of the widget. I made few test and it seems that widget is limited to 50,000 characters. If possible try to shorten your options.
Or you can use two widgets and split your options between them.
