Hi,
i want try to change some character in one cell with replace functions in VBA to another cell.

every rows seem ok but at 13th row.
i miss full code. not fully code can't be replace and severed at the end of code.
Code:
Dim p As String
 
 Set a = ActiveWorkbook.Sheets("temp")
 i = 1
 
 While a.Cells(i, 5).Value <> ""
     p = a.Cells(i, 5).Value
     
     p = Replace(p, "+", "|+|", vbTextCompare)
     p = Replace(p, "-", "|-", vbTextCompare)
     p = Replace(p, "(", "|(|", vbTextCompare)
     p = Replace(p, ")", "|)|", vbTextCompare)
     p = Replace(p, "!", "!|", vbTextCompare)
     p = Replace(p, ";", "|;|", vbTextCompare)
     p = Replace(p, "&", "|&|", vbTextCompare)
     p = Replace(p, "||", "|", vbTextCompare)
     a.Cells(i, 6).Value = "'" & p
     i = i + 1

The maximum number of characters in a cell is 32767. Your 13th row result is longer than that so it truncates. To put the remaining characters in the next column, replace:
Code:
     a.Cells(i, 6).Value = "'" & p
with:
Code:
        a.Cells(i, 6).Value = "'" & Left(p, 32766)
        If Len(p) > 32766 Then
            a.Cells(i, 7).Value = "'" & Mid(p, 32767, Len(p))
        End If
