Add code to Lotus Notes view column

New to programming in Notes. I have version 8.5 of Domino Designer. I created a simple 3 field form called cvt. One of the fields (author)is meant to capture the person creating the document so I used @Author and it worked but I got a lot of info after the name I did not want, so I changed the code to @LeftBack(@Author; "/") and now the form field simply just shows the persons name. Perfect.

My problem is when I created a VIEW called CVT to show these 3 form fields for each created document. For each column I tied the column to the form field so the view column Author is tied to the form field called author. When my users create new documents now and I use the CVT view, the author column has a long string of crap in it right after the name. if you open the document the form shows just the name, but in the view it shows more than just the name. How do I truncate all the crap after the name in the view? I am not sure how to add code to a view column, I usually just name the column, size its width and tie it to the form field name.
thx experts...
