Map characters to their relative positions in a cell
I've been using an Excel 2003 macro to loop through text cells in a spreadsheet that is sent to me from another office.

It returns a normal end but clearly there are additional rows yet to be processed. The row that causes the macro to finish prematurely always contains many clearly visible character comments, sometimes 5-6,000 characters in length. My hunch is that one or more...
