Picklist & Lookup

What is limit on #pickvalues in a pick list?  also #of rec on a lookup?  (PE & EE edition)
The maximum number of values / characters in a picklist is determined as follows:

1. Each value in a picklist may be no more than 80 characters in length.

2. The maximum number of values in a single picklist is 999.

3. The maximum number of total picklist characters (that is, the # of characters in Value 1 plus the # of characters in Value 2 plus the # of characters in Value 3, etc.) is 15,000.

NOTE: will automatically add 2 additional characters for each value entered in a picklist (a line break and a carriage return control character). If you are approaching the picklist size limit, please take this additional calculation into consideration.

For custom picklists in organizations that use record types or the translation workbench, the 15,000 character limit does not apply. You can create custom picklists that have up to 1000 entries and 255 characters per entry.

Custom multi-select picklists can contain 150 values of 40 characters per value, and users can select up to 100 at a time on a record.
