I want to split text by number of characters but if at that certain position the word is not complete then take it to the end of the word.

Add a new column 

Splitter.SplitTextByPositions( 
Table.Group(
Table.FromColumns({{0}&Text.PositionOf([Text]," ",Occurrence.All)},{"Position"}),
{"Position"},
{},
GroupKind.Local,
(x,y)=>if y[Position]>(x[Position]+25) then 1 else 0)
[Position])
([Text])

Hi Stephane

Note: in above 25 is replaced with 250. I am trying to build a Twitter auto post generator which is limited by 280 characters in due to character limit of Twitter.

The above custom column produces a list. When I expand it to rows and look at the lenght of the text in some cases it goes over 250. is it possible to limit it to 250 or less

Stephane, Thanks a million times,
