Text string is too long reduce the number of characters used

I am trying to update a form created in Excel. I am wanting to change our company name which is 20 characters longer than the current name including spaces and I keep getting an error message that the text string is too long and to reduce the amount of characters.

The header is split into 3 sections, the first section is company name and details, second section the name of the document and the third section has a small picture (company Logo) and deliver times.

I have tried Alt & Enter at the end of each line but this hasn't worked is there any other solutions that I can try ?


The maximum length of the left, center and right header combined is about 250 characters. This is a "hard" limit.


As an alternative, you could place some info in the top rows of the worksheet and set those rows as print headers.

Kind regards, HansV
