Custom Character Columns - how to display all 450 characters

If I have a custom character column that is 450 character long, how do I display all the data in the field to the user.  How do I get the data to wrap?

You could use a memo field for this instead of a character field. The memo field layout control wraps.

That would be a good idea, except the data is already in the database and you cannot do a bulk copy from a character field to a memo field.  And then when you have it in a memo field is is not sortable in the list view.

 

Thanks fo the suggestion though.

 

Perhaps ACT! could allow character fields to be displayed in a wrapable field?

And allow Memo fields to be sortable.
