In Microsoft Project 98, when you run a Visual Basic macro that uses the Notes property, the notes text result is truncated. The following macro demonstrates this problem:
Sub test() MsgBox ActiveProject.Tasks(1).Notes End Sub
This problem occurs because the notes property returns the first 255 characters entered into the Notes field for a task, a resource, or an assignment.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the versions of Microsoft Project listed above.
This problem was corrected in Microsoft Project 98 for Windows, Service Release 1 (SR-1).
For additional information about obtaining and installing SR-1, click the article number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

NOTE: Though this issue is corrected in Microsoft Project 98 SR-1, the message box (msgbox) function allows a maximum length of a prompt of approximately 1024 characters, depending on the width of the characters used.
