There are two techniques. The first technique is to convert the field from what ever type (i.e. numeric, text, date) it is to a formula field of the same type (i.e. formula-numeric, formula-text, formula-date). Then convert it back to the type it was. This erases the contents of the field.

In order to show a portion of a particular field's data on a report and/or form, you need to take these two steps:

1) Create a new formula field that will hold the subset of the original field's data, and

2) Add the new formula field to the forms and reports where you want the condensed field showing.
