Error 6000: FieldName Exceeds MaxCharacters

The value Value in the field FieldName exceeds the maximum number of characters allowed (MaxCharacters).

This error occurs when the value you provide exceeds the maximum number of characters for that field as described in the data definitions. For example, SKU is limited to 40 characters.

Common reasons why this error may occur include:

  • Not including blank spaces in your character count.
  • Pasting large amounts of data in a field without checking the character count.
To resolve this error, you should reduce the number of characters in the offending value so that it is less than or equal to the maximum number of characters for that field as described in the data definitions.

To quickly determine how many characters are in a value, paste the information into Microsoft Word and choose "Word Count..." from the Tools menu.
