How many negative keyword lists can you have?

I've looked through all of the help files, but I can't seem to see a number for how many keyword lists you're allowed to have. Does anyone know? Where can I find this? Thanks!

Hey Shire L,

The maximum number of shared negative keyword lists is set at 20
with 5000 negative keywords per list.

20  the max number of shared lists  (share lists per account)

5000 is the max per list (i.e. As a shared list or  a list of negative KWs in an ad-group)

I think you are allowed for a max of 5000 KWs per negative keyword list
However; the key is choosing the relevant and "tightly themed" keywords so you need a minimum number of negative keywords.

Ok, but is there a max on the number of lists you can have rather than a
max for the number of words per list?
