Rich Text and Views

I know you can not display rich text in views.  But I had a person to create a form some time ago they created two rich text fields.  No attachments where ever placed in the fields just text.  Now they are wanting to display the text in a view.  Is there any work arounds that will allow me to shoe the text?

Depending on your Notes Client version, you can use @Text or @Abstract to display RichText in a view column.  Of the two functions, @Abstract is the most compatible with older versions.

If your RichText field is named Body, then you could use this formula in a view column:

@Abstract([TEXTONLY]; 5000; "Body");

Might not work. From the Help db: "Rich text conversion does not work in column formulas. Use @Abstract to convert the contents of a rich text field to plain text. Then reference the plain text field in the view."
