showing only the first 50 characters of a text field in a view column

I have a view that should only show the first 50 characters of a text field.  How can I limit what the field displays in the view ?

1) make the  View on 50 characters wide

2) Use the @left or similar function to show just the first 50 characters

I hope this helps !

Change the viewcolumn's design (formula):

@Left(yourFieldName; 50)

Of course change "yourFieldName" to the correct fieldname.
