I'm sure this question and an answer is here some where. What is the work around?

 

Thanks Joe

The answer is that depends.

 

One work-around is to run a pre-sync script which concatenates values from various fields into grouped arrays within into a single field, to reduce the data set into a group of 50 arrays some of which contain more than one value.

 

A counterpart script would then be required to accept data back from the handheld and parse it out into the separate values to write it back to the original fields.

 

However I would have to say that whilst work-arounds like the above are possible, if you find that you need more than 50 fields on a handheld, you need to seriously question whether that is the best way to approach your problem. Scrolling through fifty of anything on the tiny screen of a mobile device does not sound like much fun. With that amount of data, compact laptop/notebook computers - or remote access terminals (wi-fi etc) would seem a more practical and appropriate solution.
