  • Hello,

    You can achieve it by using ddwrt:Limit function. But this may require some coding to be done.

    Refer : http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa505323.aspx#officesharepointddwrt_limit

    This overview of the ddwrt namespace describes the ddwrt functions used in the Extensible Stylesheet Language Transformation (XSLT) code of the Data View Web Part. (

    The article mentions:


    public string Limit(string szInputText, int len, string szMoreText);

    If the given string parameter szInputString is longer than len characters, this function returns the first len characters, with the string szMoreText appended. Otherwise the input string is returned unmodified.

    Note   This function should not be used with HTML strings. The string is truncated without taking the HTML markup into account.

    This can be used to develop a code to achieve the desired functionality. If help is needed in developing the code, I did suggest to open an advisory case created with SharePoint Development  support.
