Multiple lines of text fields in calculated columns RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need to create a formula where one field is a Multiple lines of text (in my case the Description of the Calendar), and tipically this a field type not supported in formulas.

    Anyone knows a workaround ? in my case there is a Calendar already full of items.

  • Hi,


    Basically, the column types that can be referenced in your formulas can not be” Multiple line of text”.


    To create a calculated column using Multiple line of text, please use the workaroud that Prasath said.


    Here is a link about ”Calculated Field Formulas”, for more information, you can check in: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb862071.aspx


    If I have any misunderstanding, please feel free to let me know.
