limit no of characters in cell
How can I limit the number of charaters (including spaces) in a cell to
48? Additionally, I'm not sure if this is possible, say it applied to
cell A1, once 48 characters are reached, it will then automatically
drop down to the cell below to A2 and do the same again.

'&' needs to be escaped as & but the '+' sign does not need to be
escaped in XML.
How you do it depends on the .NET APIs you use, if you use an
XmlTextWriter to create XML then the WriteString method for instance
does the escaping for you.

Is it possible to change that?

We have a number of Excel users in our office who cannot copy and paste
between Excel workbooks. They can copy and paste between worksheets. When
you highlight the section to copy and then go to the new workbook both the

mouse, go to the edit menu, or use control keys. This occurs with any data
type and the most simple workbooks. I have seen some suggestions here but
none have worked for this particular problem. I have reset the menus and

I have created a User form to allow users to enter data
onto a report. To ensure that data entered does not
exceed the space available I have limited the number of
characters that can be entered, I want to put a box on
the form that will show the user how many characters that
they have available and I would like it to update as they
type so they know how much space they have available.
eg. 100 characters available to start, as they type this
would decrease accordingly, so if they typed "Hello" the
box would show 95 available.
How can I do this?
