I have a report fields which can contain html text from an sql varchar column.  When I choose the option to render the fields as html (actually rich text), it does, but the way the user originally entered it makes it take up too much realestate on my reports due to the <BR> tags and what not.
I can, as an option remove the html tags and only display the text as they said that would be acceptable.  
However first question is what is the best way to do that.  I want to strip the tags in SQL, but I guess I could do it in a formula if need be.
Second question is if someone else has fun accross something like this before, and if so, what did they do about it.
Thanks

Why not use HML formatting instead of RTF?

If you post technical information, such as the version of your software and the database you'll tend to get better answers.

you might also replace the HTML tags with other tags to change the formatting, or truncate the output, you have lots of options.
