How many previous work histories should you list?

I am updating my resume and I have jobs listed as far back at 2001 when I started working, should I go back that far? How many should be listed?
Most experts recommend you only go back 10 to 15 years. Anything older than that won't offer much credibility in most cases. But you also have to take a look at what your past jobs offer in terms of the type of jobs you are looking for now.
2001 was only 7 years ago, so I'd say you probably need to go back that far.
To your success,
