Left String on Memo Value for List View

I have a List View and a couple of columns that could potentially display a large amount of text.

 

I was tinkering with the Expressions to use the Left String (column, 150) and it doesn't seem to work.

 

If I use the 'text' portion of the Display Rows it doesn't display any text.

If I use the 'Field' option of the Display Row it shows up weird text  (c1sdfuji43-)

 

Is there a way to do a left string on a List View for this particular situation?

 

I keep getting a red circle over the field saying I can't use it with that expression.

Hi,



 



You cannot reference the same field in your expression as it will create a circular reference.



 



Create new column and drag a data label control to the column



Add the expression to the new column and use the smartobject field in the expression:



 





 



hope that helps
