      This is a WORD question, I think.  But, it is also an
      EPDM question

       

      I am using a EPDM template for users to add text that will
      be transferred to a WORD document.  I have checked in WORD to learn if
      there is a way to limit the maximum number of characters and/or state the
      allowed number of characters in any one field.  I found nothing.

       

      So, in EPDM, I limit the maximum number of characters to
      1000, which was specified by those who asked me to make the EPDM template and
      WORD form.  This works pretty good.  Users may not enter more than
      1000 characters in the EPDM template.  However, when we get to the WORD
      document all 1000 characters are not being permitted in the appropriate
      field.  The result is that not all of a user’s entry gets applied to the
      WORD document.

       

      In WORD, have you come across any way to control the
      character count in a document field?  In my situation I want WORD to
      permit whatever it receives from the EPDM template being sent to the WORD
      custom property.
