End If
 

Excel Facts

What do {} around a formula in the formula bar mean?
{Formula} means the formula was entered using Ctrl+Shift+Enter signifying an old-style array formula.

VBA has its own Len() function - so
Code:
    MyNameLen = Len(MyName)
    If MyNameLen > 30 Then
        MyName = Application.WorksheetFunction.Left(MyName, 30)
    End If

    If MyNameLen > 30 Then
        MyName = Left(MyName, 30)
    End If
