Allow Custom Fields to have a size limiter

I would like to have a limit on the number of characters for a custom field. For example, I have a custom field, it is a number field but I want only 5 characters in length - the individual can enter up to five numbers but no more. This will ensure that the field matches what I need it to for reporting and for data validation. And, while we are at it, it would be great to have the ability to limit the minimum number of characters as well. In this example, I would want the minimum and maximum to both equal 5 - the users can only enter a 5 digit code. But, I have some other fields that could be a limit of 3 or maximum of 5 - the user can enter a value of 3,4,or5 characters ONLY>

        All fields should have validation rules and other "attributes" such as this request.

        I think this feature is easy to implement in both desktop and online versions of MS Project.
        It's a good idea to avoid data entry errors.
