Does anyone have a way to do that, or code to do it? I can imagine something that would accumulate all the non-HTML characters into a new string and paste that resulting string into a new field. If someone has already done that in appscript, I would love to see it.
No, I can't just copy the rich text field to the plain text field - that carries all the HTML codes and makes them visible.
AppScript would be pretty difficult given the lack of support for regular expressions.
Accepted AnswerJessica WeissmanOffline0Yes, I'm discovering the limitations of vbscript 4.0. The quickest solution is string manipulation that inserts a space where every tag was, but it drops line feeds. It's a mess.

Accepted AnswerPaul ThompsonOffline0The simple answer is that Regular expressions are incapable of dealing with the complexities of HTML. HTML is not "regular". For a more complete answer, see this thread on Stackexchange. The author starts to have fun about a third of the way through, then goes right off the rails, but essentially the answer is: Nope. Can't get there from here.
