TLV1701: Pspice model simulation error

Part Number: TLV1701

I have downloaed TLV1701 Psipce Model (rev.B) from TI website (https://www.ti.com/product/TLV1701)

Open the Pspice example project (TLV1701.opj) in the downloaded file with OrCAD capture 16.6

Run the simulation and got following error.

----------------------------------------------

.SUBCKT 4ORGATE 1 2 3 4 5 VDD VSS
E1 6 0 VALUE = { IF( ((V(1)> (V(VDD)+V(VSS))/2 ) | (V(2)> (V(VDD)+V(VSS))/2 ) | (V(3)> (V(VDD)+V(VSS))/2 ) | (V(4)> (V(VDD)+V(VSS))/2
$
ERROR(ORPSIM-16366): Line too long. Limit is 132 characters.

--------------------------------------------------

Using model editor, I have modified 4ORGATE as below

original : 

E1 6 0 VALUE = { IF( ((V(1)> (V(VDD)+V(VSS))/2 ) | (V(2)> (V(VDD)+V(VSS))/2 ) | (V(3)> (V(VDD)+V(VSS))/2 ) | (V(4)> (V(VDD)+V(VSS))/2 )), V(VDD), V(VSS) ) }

change : 

E1 6 0 VALUE = { IF( ((V(1)> (V(VDD)+V(VSS))/2 ) | (V(2)> (V(VDD)+V(VSS))/2 ) | (V(3)> (V(VDD)

++V(VSS))/2 ) | (V(4)> (V(VDD)+V(VSS))/2 )), V(VDD), V(VSS) ) }

After the change, I ran the simulation and got following error
