Assuming the data is text you should be able to use @abstract within a computed field and then show that value in the view..
BruceWayne add :
1) Create a computed field in your form which the @formula :
@Abstract([TextOnly] ; 64000 ; “” ; “MyRichTextFieldName”)
2) Then in you view, create a column which point to that field “MyRichTextFieldName”
3) You should then view the content (in full text, no file attached, no OLE object, no image) of your richtext field in this column
I tried on 22-10-2012 it’s working perfect…
