I want to move the length on circle 1 to be where circle 2 is at. I want to shorten the bar. How do I accomplish this?

I solved this problem by creating a Formula Text field called Truncated Notes. However, instead of writing HTML like I saw in another example, I used Left from the string formulas.

Left([Notes], 60)

That statement will write out the first 60 characters from the column called Notes. Replace Notes on the report with Truncated Notes. But of course, leave Notes for New and Edit.

This is a way to play with the column width on reports for particularly long fields.
