    Hi Sandeep,

    Do you want to resize all columns or just one or two columns? if yes then, you can create a formula field to truncate the data for that particular column.

    Tell me how you would like to proceed?

    Thanks,
    Gaurav

    Sometimes it is because of your column heading. For that, you can easily customize the column heading.

    If it is a text field then, create a formula-text field and use the below formula.

    Left([Your Text Field], 60)

    Now, show this field in the report instead of using the original one.

    Thanks,
    Gaurav

    Left([multiline feild], 60)

    Hi Sandeep,

    I am able to do that. Can you please post some more information like before trim and after the trim. How you want to truncate the field.

    Hello Gaurav,

    I do have similar kind of issue, I need a column to shrink to certain width because of user visibility, Can you please help me on this?

    I have changed column type (Text Multi line -> formula Rich text)  But when am trying to shrink using formula that am not able figure it out.

    My question is, As you mentioned in previous solution to use this "Left([Your Text Field], 60)" how do i integrate to this particular column.

    Thank you,
    Abhi.

    Hi Abhi,

    Welcome to the Quick Base Community.

    You don't have to change your existing field. You need to create a new formula text field and use the above-mentioned formula and use that formula field in place of your multi-line field on the report.

    Thanks,
    Gaurav

    Gaurav,

    You don't have to change your existing field. You need to create a new formula text field and use the above-mentioned formula and use that formula field in place of your multi-line field on the report. <quesiton> Is this new formula text field is a column or needed to be added to the existing field?

    Thanks
    Abhi

    Hi Abhi,

    It is a new formula field which you will add as a column.

    Thanks,

    You can use webhooks instead of actions.

    Thanks,
