    Pivot Table Max Characters (Excel 2k)

    Trying to create a pivot table that has a field of more than 256 characters. But it gets truncated to 256 characters. Any work arounds or help?

    Why in heaven's name would you want to use such long strings in a pivot table? I'd replace the text with a short description, and put the full text in a cell to the side.

    (There is no way to prevent Excel from truncating the text to 255 characters in a pivot table)
