    Default How do you reduce the length of a recordset b4 dis

    I am having trouble reducing the length of a record from a memo field of an access db file.<BR><BR>I&#039m trying to achieve a similar result as the MSN computing news page (msn.co.uk) where the headline of the article is displayed, followed by only the first few lines of the story.<BR><BR>I&#039ve been through four wrox asp books and the MSDN library.<BR>I&#039ve tried using the textstream object, the replace function and the TextFormatter component, all without any luck.<BR><BR>Can anyone please help!!<BR><BR>Many thanks,<BR>Shaz.

    It&#039s not exactly clear what your asking but i&#039ll try...<BR><BR>it sounds like your trying to limit the size of of the field as its coming out of the db - don&#039t do this<BR>go ahead and pull it out into your page and then cut to what ever size you want using vbscript or javascript<BR><BR>hope this helps
