  • 1.  Rich Text Field appearance as a LookUp Field

    Posted 09-02-2021 09:30
    When I have a Rich Text field as a lookup field, in a child table record, the HTML hieroglyphics appear. e.g. <p>. etc.
    Is there a way to either have the field show up as it does in the Parent record or strip the child record lookup field of it's HTML characters.

    What has likely happened here is that the field type of the Parent Record was changed to be Rich Text from Plain Text.

    The easiest fix is to make a new lookup field and then check the Usage tab for the existing (old) field and replace it wherever it was used, and then delete the old field.

    Ah, so what you are saying is that if the lookup field's parent was originally a plain text field and then the parent field is changed to a rich text field, the lookup field does not get changed to a rich text but rather remains in it's original state (plain text).
