Pasting a table from Word into the requirement description exceeds the 100000 character limit of the underlying HTML. Can this be avoided?

Pasting a table from Word into the requirement description exceeds the 100000 character limit of the underlying HTML. Can this be avoided?

Problem:

Pasting a table from Word into the requirement description exceeds the 100000 character limit of the underlying HTML. Can this be avoided?

Resolution:

When you copy a table from Word and try to paste it into the requirement description field of CaliberRM, you may receive a message "The underlying html is limited to 100000 characters. You are xxxx characters over the limit!".

This limitation is being reached because tables in Word require additional characters in order to be represented by HTML, the underlying HTML of these tables is causing the characters to exceed the 100000 character limitation in CaliberRM.

A workaround for this limitation, is to copy the table from Word and paste it into Wordpad. Then copy the table from Wordpad and paste it into the requirement description of CaliberRM. When you paste the table into Wordpad, the underlying HTML is dramatically reduced. This may allow you to copy the table and paste it into CaliberRM without exceeding the limit.

If the table is still too large after you paste it into Wordpad then you may have to split the table into smaller tables and divide it amongst a set of requirements. You might still find this technique beneficial in helping you reduce the number of smaller tables that are necessary to represent the original one.

Please be aware that the formatting of your table may be slightly changed if you copy it from Word and paste it into Wordpad. However, in many cases, the difference is negligible.
