As you cannot really change the lookup column itself, I'd suggest to add to the page a script that will modify the view.

Here is a basic example written with jQuery:


what it does is add a line break before each hyperlink.

The simplest answer is to convert the single line of text field to a multiline of text field set as plain text. The users can put them on multiple lines and you don't have to worry about scripting or coding any custom displays.

  • I am sorry, it is a look up column not a single line of text. I appreciate your response Feb 8, 2012 at 18:13
