A workflow to limit description property characters to 40

We use a ERP system where part descriptions are limited to 40 characters long, so when creating names we have to manually count the characters within the part/assembly property field. I was wondering if there was a macro or workflow to achieve this/set a limit? Appreciate there are workarounds using excel etc but wondered if there was a way to keep this within Solidworks. 

 

Any advice or help on this would be great.

 

Thanks.
