What is the max number of user a User Field Type (Mult=“TRUE”) can handle?

I am using SharePoint standard 2010. Does anyone know how many users we can store in a User field, when we have attribute Mult=”TRUE”? Is there any limit?

I have looked around, and found nothing.

According to msdn article, 96 is the limit for column type people/group.



The limit type is Threshold which is “… Configurable limits that can be exceeded to accommodate specific requirements”

That is just the number of columns you can have, not the number of people in the column, that’s what he is wanting to know

@PirateEric Totally agree, I also found this article, but does not answer my question.

I don’t know what the bound is, I don’t know if it’s been tested, most I’ve personally seen is about 20
