  • Re: populating a list with outside data

    Yes our posts did cross. I see that I am able to populate fields from the top repeating row without isolating the row. It looks like I'm on my way. I learned a lot today. Thanks, gran

  • Re: populating a list with outside data

    It looks like I can set a query field, query the DS2 and then set a different query field and query again - further refining the data. So after getting the Site-A records set DS2 query field "ID" to DS2 data field max(ID), getting the latest of the site-A entrees - does that sound right?

  • Re: populating a list with outside data

    OK,I dragged the new connection (to the same [main] list) fields onto the form in a repeating table, with a query field and a query button and all works, sorted by Modified desc. However it produces duplicate rows for the same site (since multiple exist). How do I get just the MOST RECENT row, from Site-A?

    Yes, if I can populate from the same list, without using a second one, that will be best. In my trial I wasn't able to get any data with simple rules. I'll try using the query fields, which I'm just beginning to understand. Where would I set to sort by Modified desc, in the all items view?

  • Re: populating a list with outside data

    Thanks Hilary, I am a bit new to SharePoint, and so a little lost in the lingo here. Currently my main list (siteVisits) has its drop-down list for 'site', and some 'siteParamaters' fields populated from a secondary list (siteSpecs), via a secondary data connection. The siteParameter fields values are set by rules when the ...

  • Re: populating a list with outside data

    OK, I've got a drop-down list populating from a different list, and rules to set some other fields from that list. (I am so helpless until I write my problem out in your forum.) So I guess my engineers will have to set the specs for each site in the secondary list, if they want it to populate their main list. I wish I had a way to populate ...

  • populating a list with outside data

    My infopath list is where engineers enter specs and measurements they take at sites twice a year. In subsequent visits to a site the first 25 fields (the specs) are apt to be exactly the same. They've asked about getting those 25 fields populated from the record of the previous visit. If I can get a direction of attack without going down too ...

  • Re: Conditional Default using xPath ("or" in a boolean)

    slight modification needed: A form load rule sets the value to 'supervisor' if preferredName is SupervisorA or SupervisorB or SupervisorC, and otherwise the control's default value sets it to 'technician'. In retrospect, I may go back to manual entry just for stability and simplicity given the minimal extra convenience ...

  • Re: Conditional Default using xPath ("or" in a boolean)

    OK, here's what will work: Set the field's value in infoPath rules (which allow "If a and If b ..." etc), but have one of the conditions be "if the field is blank". That is the equivalent of setting a default for the field. I never would have thought of it without your help. gran

  • Re: Conditional Default using xPath ("or" in a boolean)

    Thanks, I see how an outside list with all personnel and their roles would work. However I don't have a list of all technicians. I only know who the supervisors are. So I still need a function for "IF( A or B or C..)" or "IF(A in (B,C,D))". The rules in infopath could use something like that to change a field, but not to ...
