Sharepoint and Word 2007 Document Properties

I created a library in sharepoint with a lookup column with an extensive list and associated the values with each document.  When we try to check the documents out and edit them in Word, we get invalid or missing properties.  We had not modifed any of the lookup informaiton (just text within the document).  I am wondering if there are too many values to save within the properties of Word.  Does that make sense?  Any suggestions would be helpful.  Thanks

It is not required.  It works on documents that do not have a lot of options in the lookup selected.  But some documents have a lot of selections attached to it and those are the ones that won't work.  Is there some type of character limit on Word that won't allow you to select too many?

More detail:  The look up list contains about 250 selections.  Some documents only select one of these but some require all 250 selections.  Ones that have more than like 10 or so are the ones that are not allowing us to modify the documents and check them back in.  Thanks,

Check the size allowed in the column; you may be bumping up against that limitation.

It is set to unlimited.  The column is a lookup value set for multiple values and unlimited length.

I guess it is a limitation with Word of 255 characters and we are definitely bumping up against that.  So my question has been answered *unfortunately not what I wanted but it is what it is.  Thanks
