    How to have the value of a control made dynamic based on selections of two DropDown Boxes?

    Hello Everyone,

    It is good to be in the company of all you people specifically into the Infopath space :)

    Going into my problem scenario, I am trying to add a Severity Matrix implementation from a list

    Severity    Priority   Impact
    Sev 1         High        Significant
    Sev 2         High        High
    Sev 2         Normal    High

    ...

    and so on
    There are two controls which lets users choose Priority and Impact and depending on the selection, I want the control to take the Severity values from the list.

    Cheers,

     Anils

    Check out this tutorial video I created that describes how to create cascading dropdowns in InfoPath: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SH7xUEcQwwg

    If you have any specific questions, feel free to let me know and I can try to help!

    Hi,

    You can accomplish this using rules. The conditions in the rules will look like this:

    If Priority=High and Impact=High, then have a rule that sets Severity to Sev2.

    If Priority=Normal and Impact=High, then have a rule that sets Severity to Sev2.

    And so one, one rule for each possible combination.

    Good luck!
