Limiting character string length in BOM field

We have a SW add-in that allows SW to link to a MS Access based program for updating BOM's for purchasing. In turn, all of the part info in the data base is uploaded automatically into the SW part file properties; such as part numbers, part descriptions, manufacturer.

The problem is that when I transfer that info to the BOM for a drawing, some of the descriptions are so long, I end up with a multiple line description in the cell of the BOM. Is there a way to limit the length of text string inserted into the cell when a BOM is created not mater how long the text string is in the description property?
