In Civiliazion IV: Colonization how can I load to a ship in a settlement only a part of a certain product?

For example only 100 on 147 cotton units available?

Hold shift key down while dragging and dropping the goods. The game will then ask exactly how many units you want to move. Without shift game will move either all or 100 units, which ever is smaller, I think.

I tried shift before but only outside of settlement UI. It works only in there but it is ok, thank you! – Drake Aug 13 '10 at 13:14

If I remember right hold down shift and drag&drop the goods should do it.
