Increase outlook folder name size limit - TRIM outlook add-in

Jump to solution

Hi,

 

We use TRIM 7.2.1 with MS Office 2007. When one of our users tried to create a TRIM  linked folder in outlook, she got the following message:

"Property 'Name' is limited to 50 characters of text. Please supply a shorter string value." Is there any way to increase this character limit on the folder name? Any help will be highly appreciated.

 

Thanks

Just tested in 7.21 and office 2010 and received the same error.

Looks to be part of the code, as you can create Outlook folders that have more than 50 characters.

 

From what I could see there wasn't much you could do regarding increasing it. You could consider requesting an enhancement request if you really needed it changed.

 

Personally I would just give it a shorter title.

I beleive that one can change the length of the Folder Title (to over 50 characters) after the TRIM link has been created.

 

Works for 7.21 / Outlook 2010
