Character Limit on variable link with office documents

Probably more a question for microsoft office forums than Solidworks but I thought I'd ask anyway incase somebody has had the same problem.

 

Basically my current ECO process links many variables taken from the EPDM template.  One of these is for description and can quite often be detailed, seemingly there is a character limit on office document properites of 256 characters.  So while the datacard will capture the full detail of the description the user inputs, quite often the office file which automates this variable is not representative of this.  Does anyone know if it is possible to expand this figure or if there are any suitable work arounds I could use to avoid missing information in the office file itself?
