VBA Text Form field .result won't accept string longer than 255 characters

I am investigating a problem in VBA which is part of some code running in an MS Word Document. The code is attempting to copy the data from one Text from field object to another. This is being done by the .result method.
The method is working in terms of getting the data out of the form field and putting it into a string. However there is a problem when using the .result method again to put the value into the new field if the string is longer than 255 characters. Does anyone know why this is and if there is a work around?

There is no reason for why some things are the way they are with microsoft :)

ActiveDocument.Unprotect
ActiveDocument.FormFields(1).Range.Fields(1).Result.Text = (String(300, "X"))
ActiveDocument.Protect Type:=wdAllowOnlyFormFields, NoReset:=True
