When copying and pasting from Excel into Strater, why is data truncated at 255 characters?

Text is limited to 255 characters when copying and pasting from Excel into a Strater table.
 
To work around this, you can do one of the following:
  • Click the File | Open command in Strater to open the Excel file. When the file is opened, the full text in the cell is displayed.
  • In a table window, click the File | Import Data command to import the Excel file into the existing worksheet. When the file is imported in this manner, the full text in the cell is displayed.
  • Copy the text from Excel, close Excel, then paste the text into the Strater table. Excel will no longer have a lock on the information, allowing all of the data to copy and paste.
  • Copy the text from Excel, paste into an intermediary program like Notepad, and then paste the text into a Strater table. When copied from the intermediary program, the text is copied as text and not Excel data.

 

If you would like to add your suggestion for this to be changed in Strater, let us know.
