    Character Limit (2003)

    Is it possible to limit the number of characters allowed in a cell? I have created a standard formatted worksheet for data entry and want specified cells limited to only 1000 characters of data entry.

    Thoughts? Thanks.

    Re: Character Limit (2003)

    Select the cell or cells that you want to apply this limit to.
    Select Data | Validation...
    Select "Text Length" from the Allow dropdown.
    Select "less than or equal to" from the Data dropdown.
    Enter 1000 in the Maximum box.
    If you wish, you can provide a help text in the Input Message tab, and a custom error message in the Error Alert tab.
    Finally, click OK.
