Formatted text column in SharePoint 2007 document library RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am required to have a formatted text column in a document library. I created a sharepoint designer 2007 workflow that stores html formatted text to a multiple lines of text column in this library. However, the html tags are not being rendered and instead displays the tags as well as the text in the view. Using lists, this can be done with enhanced rich text column, but libraries seem to lack this feature.

    I tried creating a site column as a multiple lines of text - enhanced rich text type but when I add the site column to the library, same result.

    Does anybody here know of a work around? If html tags is not possible, we wanted to at least have line breaks in the column which we tried but found out that line breaks work if the document in the library is an office 2007 documents but not other wise (older office documents, pdfs, etc.)
