Multiple lines of text - display only X number of characters

  Asked By: Carlos    Date: Aug 24    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 7338

The multiples lines of text shows "ALL" lines of text if you include
this column
on the view.
For any list I've ever created, I never want the entire thing to show
up on the
view.. just 100 characters is enough.

How do I modify this default.
Note: I do not want to create a Custom Field, I just want to modify the
multiples lines of text field.

You could convert the list view  web part into a data view instead and
change the display  of the column contents.
