    Maximum character count in tables

    Hi all.

    Is it possible to set a character limit for a cell in a Word table?

    Thanks,

    Sun

    You could use a text box form field in the cell and limit the number of characters in it. You'd then need to 'Restrict Editing' - and you'd need to put form fields everywhere else you wanted to allow users to fill in, which might make this impractical.

    If you use commas as your decimal separator (1,23 instead of 1.23) then please replace commas with semi-colons in your formulae.
    You don't need to give me rep if I helped, but a thank-you is nice.
