Display column description on a custom list RRS feed

  • Question

  • Anyone know how to display the Description text from the Additional Column Settings on the DispForm.aspx page of a custom list item? It displays on the EditForm.aspx page by default as instructions for the column data entry. Seems that this would be rather simple to do but I cannot figure it out and have not found any solutions online.

    Your help is greatly appreciated.

  • Create a custom DispForm.aspx using SharePoint designer. You can add fields for description. Replace the custom page  with OOTB page on list properties supportiong files.

  • Great Veera, I will give this a try. Although, I thought I'd be able to utilize the already existing description field from the Additional Column Settings somehow.  Do you know why we cannot do that?
