Not linking to documents in a view

This might be a bit of a daft question...
Is there anyway I can just display a view on the internet and not have links to the documents.  I'm using R5 and just a standard $$ViewTemplateDefualt form for all my views.  None of the columns have the option "show values in the column as links" checked but at the moment the first column is displaying as a link (which I think is what notes automatically defaults too).

A view will always display at least 1 column as links on the web.  But there is a solution : create an extra column, and give this the property "Show values in the columns as links", and then hide the column.

Another solution is to enable the property "treat as html", but then you'll have to write all the html necessary to build the view yourself (which is a lot more work)


Create a form:
$$ViewTemplateDefault  ->Check the psell. Your is wrong.

And create a field:


open any view on web. And u can see the view using this form.
Use something like "[</a>]" in your first column to stop the href, generated by default.

Or use html views and you have complete control over them.

Cheers for that.
A quick question - do you know how this affects DBLookups and DbColumns on the view?  I'm pretty sure there should be no problems...
That does not affect dblookups.  DBlookups are only affected if you hide the view (completely) for the web, or if you put Read rights on the view
