Is it possible to create a calculated column which takes the substring of the first 15 characters of a string field? I want to only put the first 15 characters of a field int he column, and then have a hover tooltip that will show the whole field. Is this possible?

Thanks,
Laura

Hello Laura,

You can use a template column to achieve this task.
Attached to this message, is a small application, which handles a similar task.
I hope it helps.
