    Hi all,
    I am trying to format a field so that it displays only a certain number of characters. so if the value in the field exceeds 20 than it will only display the first 20 characters. I checked the formatting feature in the bindings window and tried Trim but it has'nt shortened the value on the page I am displaying it on. I think i'm going about this the wrong way too because the trim, be it left or right, does'nt allow you to state how many characters you'd like to display so is there a way to display a certain number of characters of the value of a field ?

    Thanks in advance
