replacing breaks

philsivyer asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I am using a reporting tool to download some html fields from an oracle database.  I am stripping out breaks using the following in a formula field in my report ...
REPLACE({COMMENT_HTML2},"<br />","<br>");
Unfortunately, any single line breaks are removed.
What I would really like is to strip out any double/multiple breaks but leave a break if there is just the one.
