    EPDM data card Custom Properties Microsoft Word Text Field Limit to 255 Character

    Won Lek Chua



      Our company's EPDM data card is set up in such a way that link EPDM variables data card value to Microsoft Word Document Properties.


      Method is as suggested by Inflow Technology,

      However, when opened up Microsoft Word document, text field document property limits character to 255 only.


      Is there any work around for this to increase the acceptable limits?


      I check online, is it possible to use docvariable in Microsoft Word?


      Or any VBA method that can send more than 255 characters through to microsoft word?
