I am desigining an Infopath form and looking up from a sharepoint list, but when I actually preview the form the lookup list seems limited by the Sharepoint List View to a fraction of the whole list.  However, there is no control over what Sharepoint View it applies in the InfoPath Data Connection.  Is there anything i can do to control this short of making the Item Limit on my Sharepoint List Default View xxx thousand long??

Yah your data connection is to the default view in SharePoint.  Manipulate that and whatever you see in SharePoint should be what comes across in InfoPath

Thank you for the prompt response, I will work around that I guess.  Why does MS always fall short when it comes to the detail?  Sharepoint is a terrific concept but there are loads of little things like this that really hack you off!

Anyway, not your fault, thank you again.
