Hiding recent items from Lookup dialog page

When a user clicks on the magnifying glass next to a lookup field, the page that comes up contains a list of recent items. Is there any way to not show any recent items and force them to key in some value to search for? The problem is that they are selecting recent items which are for previous months that are no longer valid choices. They need to search for and select the current month only.


As an alternative, is there a way to create a new lookup dialog page?


No, you can't clear the recent items list. It's a standard feature.


Yes, you can create a popup window. See this post for details (near the bottom): http://boards.developerforce.com/t5/General-Development/Problem-in-Lookup-window-using-Visualforce/td-p/273449
