Dear friends.
Using COMMENT LEGAL function in order to select strings and get their 
respective codes from a separate REC file, I wanted to get CID10 codes and 
their respective Descriptions during data entry.

In my parent CHK file you can see:

DISEASE
   COMMENT LEGAL CID10.REC SHOW
   TYPE COMMENT CIDCODE
END

CIDCODE
   NOENTER
END

In my reference CHK file you'd read:
DISEASE
   KEY 1
END

CID10
   KEY UNIQUE 2
END

It's working fine, except that, in the pop-up window of reference the 
description of DISEASE is shown length limited to 30 characters, despite of 
my reference REC file showing 70.

Any clue?
Thanks in advance.
