Outlook Forms: Validation

Hello,

I currently have started using the "Designed Forms" option in outlook. I have created a form but I'm trying to create a "validation" that limits the number of characters (whether numbers or letters).

I'm more of an excel user. In the Properties window, under the validation tab, I have written LEN(13) in the "Validation Formula". This would suffice in excel validation but it is coming up as an error in outlooks no matter what I write.

Does anyone have insights as to how to do this or knows if I'm going about it the wrong way entirely?

I appreciate any insight that is provided.

Also,

Once I have a form created and have succesfully sent an e-mail through it (I'm in test phase so I sent it to myself) how can I export that data into excel?

Right now I have to take and copy and paste each one individually.

Thank You

Hello,

Apparently that is not what I needed. It was my error.

I'm trying to make a validation that doesn't allow me to input anything over 13 characters.

Any suggestions on whats the best way to make this happen?

Thank You very much

I tried using both the LEN function to limit the characters and the LEFT function telling it to read only the "13" characters in this example. No matter what I write "ERROR" pops up which is supossed to appear only if the condition is not met.

Left("string ",13)

That is how I have set up the validation. Saying to leave 13 characters starting from the left.
