    Hey,

    Anybody got any thoughts on the best way to add a column to a document type to allow users choose the customer name from a drop down list, but rather than typing the list of customer names into a Choice field it is looked-up from somewhere? The idea being that maintaining a Choice field of a few hundred customer names probably isn't going to be that efficient. If I was doing this in MSAccess I'd have a Customers table and use that as the source for this dropdown box, wondering if similar is possible in SharePoint 2013?

    Cheers!
