On the Options tab, settings for the display of data
in the Office list can be defined.
Depending on the data type of
the field, the following properties can be defined here:
In the Column width (pixels) field, enter the width the column may take up at
maximum. To do so, enter the desired number of pixels. The value -1 has the
effect of displaying all characters, and adjusts the width of the column for the
length of the longest entry.
The setting Hidden causes the column
to not be shown in the list in Office.
Both of these settings can be
defined for all data types.
For the data types string and
multiline text, additional properties can be defined.
The value that you enter into Maximum text length (characters) defines the
maximum number of characters that may be shown in the list column later.
Entering a value of -1 will show all characters.
With Ellipsis (omission character), you can enter characters that will be attached to the
last character of the text, in order to make clear that the complete text will
not be displayed.
