Excel Problems merging Excel data into Word – cutting off at 255 characters

Jan 15, 2010

I have a Word document with 111 merge fields. The data is in Excel, and some of the fields are long paragraphs. All are merging correctly, except for just two fields, which cut off at 255 characters. I have Office 2007, although this problem also happened when I had Office 2003.

The data with this issue is in the 74th and 97th columns of my Excel worksheet.

Any advice/thoughts?
