Field label text (40) is truncated

I create several custom fields using TEXT (40) with description of 13 - 15 characters in OVSD 5.1. They are all truncated when I post in Change or Service Call request form. It only displays up to 11 characters. Please see the attached.

The field label text is still truncated even though I enlarge the form. Is there any way for OVSD 5.0 to display all 15 - 20 characters when users open up the Change or Service Call request form?

Thank you.

Re: Field label text (40) is truncated

Hi Danny,

Not a real solution but could you alter the names to be:

HW .... rather than Hardware and
SW .... rather than Software

Hope this helps

Danny,

other solution is that you give the field a general short name and create a box around the field (group box top and group box bottom in the form layout).
Give the box the actual label name.
