In Office, Object IDs are either object names or an ID number.

• It is not an ID number.
• There is no shape with the same name in the:
• same worksheet, for Excel.
• same slide, for PowerPoint.
• same document, for Word.
• header, for Word.
• It is not an embedded object, for Excel and Word.
If it is an object name and contains NCR (Numeric Character
Reference) characters, they are escaped using the Unicode numerical character
representation escape character format
where H represents a hexadecimal character. If the string already contains
escaped characters in this format, then the first underscore character (_) of
the escape sequence shall be escaped.

This simple type also specifies the following restrictions:
• This simple type's contents have a maximum length of 255 characters.
