Constrain an object's movement distance?

Is there a way to constrain how far an object can move?

My example is a sliding door. When you close a sliding door it stops at the wall. But in 3D objects can pass through each other. I don't want to be able to move it beyond the wall.

Try the Limit Controller. Otherwise there's still the option for using a script or reaction controller.

3ds Max help: Limit controller
For example, a Technical Director might want to assign limits to float values that animators will adjust to make posing easier, enforce standards, or prevent inconsistencies and mistakes. A TD could use limits for:
  • position extents for sliding drawers
This sounds like exactly what I'm looking for.
