Someone might say different here but I have never come across it and dont think it can be done. If there is a way then I too would be interested in knowing how.

Create a calculation field that concatenates the various fields you want to display.  Unfortunately, all values will be returned.

Hi -

As Mariano states using a concatenated field will return the concatenation as opposed to a single field.

Alternatively you could use a plug-in called ScriptIt (www.cnsplug-ins.com) that allows you to create pop-up xml menu's that look like Value lists, however you can build them from existing value lists, hard code or create from portals. They also allow the trigger of a script when a choice is selected.

By doing this you can display the information you want and then, when a choice has been made a script can run to return the information you want, be it first name, last name, record id or any other information relating to that record.

It is another option
