When using ISA, an Excel spreadsheet can be sent to members of a Project Distribution listing the errors on IS reports. In Excel, the name of the tab on the first worksheet, the summary, has a character limit of 31. If the Distribution name in ISA exceeds 31, the name of the Distribution is truncated in the worksheet name.
For example, an ISA Distribution named MaterialParts_From_The_Good_Old_USA will result in an Excel worksheet name of _USA Summary. This could cause confusion if a truncated Distribution name is not clear.
Syniti recommends limiting the name of Project Distributions to 23 characters or fewer (as the space and the word “Summary” in the worksheet name count towards the 31 character limit).
