You have exceeded the maximum number of 200 characters in this field; it will be truncated. in Description Field MS CRM 2011

While i was mentioing the Description in MS CRM i got the below alert....
"You have exceeded the maximum number of 200 characters in this field; it will be truncated." with OK and Cancel button , below in the screenshot...
you might be thining what is the stupid requirement of Description is more than 200 characters...
atcually i was just putting the Optionset values in the description so that it will have the Label and Value mapped...

Work around

what i did to make the description be stay as more than 200 chars is...
once the alert will come, if you will click OK , then it will trunckate till 200 chars... if you click Cancel , then it will be the full string even if more than 200 chars.... then Save...
so this way you can just keep your description....
Hope this will help someone, who has stupid requirement like mine,,....
