List text items not displayed in a list but numbers and dates are

  

Any thoughts would be much appreciated

Hum...

My thought is that we have no clue what you're talking about ;)

No offense, but...

Is this web or mobile?
In which context? List Page? Popup? Modal? Detail Page with Master Detail? Block? Web Block? Menu?
Did you debug? The data is there or not? The source of the data is bringing it or not? From where come the data?
It's just a matter of the data being "invisible" or the data is not there at all? Did you inspect the page? In which browser? Or device?
How are you showing the text? You just typed it? It is an expression?

See how many questions (and much more), is possible to do?

Without a proper contextualization, is very difficult to help.

Cheers.
