Hi, I have a field returned in a report that points to =Fields!Comments.Value
This is a multiline field from Sharepoint.  When it is returned, the values are wrapped by <div> </div> Respectively if there is a value. eg.

<div>This is a comments test.</div>
Is there a way to strip the <div>/<div> to retun only what inbetween?
eg. This is a comments test.

I am not sure how this would help.  I believe We have SQL2008 and I am using vs2005 to build the report.  I don't have access to upgrade or do anything on the server.  Isn't there a way to manipulate or strip the field?

You could look at using the "replace" command and replace the <div> or </div> string with ""
