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

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.

Gaurav

Gaurav,

Thanks

Hi Abhi,

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

Thanks,
Gaurav

Hi,
Gaurav, i have a doubt,

We created a quickbase actions for add record to another application , it is working fine in forms , but when we add in grid edit , it is not getting added in another application.

You can use webhooks instead of actions.

Thanks,
