SharePoint 2007 and have site curate access only.

List-A has a column Name and that is a lookup to List-B, which only has names and no other information.

Now when looking at lookup columns in views the option displayed is a link to parent list. In my case List-B has not other info other then names but the names change frequently. And this lookup is used in many lists.

Is there any way to prevent a lookup column from being clickable so that the value looks like plain text in views?

1)go to list setting -> click on lookup column -> in that, select your which be lookup(without linked to item)

2) or you can remove link using jquery

  • Thanks for replying. I was inadvertently using option 1 you suggested yet the outcome is still clickable for some reason. For option two I am assuming it's a CEWP with some code but I don't have a clue about jquery/javascript so any help would be appreciated. This is more of a want then a need. Someone asked me about making this unclickable so I am researching it.
