How to filter a List View by multiple values for one filter field?

User Specific Values for a Drop Down "Choice" Field

I would like to create a drop down field which has some fields disabled or not visible based on the user logged in.  Is this possible?

Drop-Down List Filled with Checkboxed 'Choice' Field?


SP Lists allow a 'choice' field.  You can opt to make the Choices a manually typed in list where the user simply 'checks' off one or more options.

Within InfoPath, I want to be able to show ALL of the checked-off choices in a drop-down menu.  Can't do it! :(

Any suggestions?


SharePoint calculated field based on other list values


Hello Everybody!

I have a repeating list that seems like that

List 1

Title    Number


A        10

B        11

A        11

B        9


I need to create a list with a field that contains each different titles from list 1 (A + B) and another column with the sum of the numbers associated with A or B in list 1.

List 2

Title     Number


A         21

B         20


My problem is that I don't know which method using to do that.

Calculated field can only use list field (not external list), infopath can get this but I don't know how to do it.

I wanted to know if someone has an issue other than developing. Because my client doesn't want to pay for a development.

Thank you very much!!!!

Create a task list from existing task lists based on field values


Hi!  I have a bunch (~10) of different task lists corresponding to different projects; each list has a mixture of Statuses, i.e., some completed, some In Progress, some Not Started.  I'd like to create a (preferably dynamically updated) single task list consisting of all the incomplete tasks from each of the project lists.  After much trial and error (I'm still a relative newbie with DB stuff; even more so w/ Sharepoint stuff) I figured out how to do this by viewing the lists in Access and creating a query which resulted in the compiled list I describe above; however, when I clicked on the "Publish" to Sharepoint button and returned to Sharepoint default view, I couldn't find this new list anywhere (e.g., the new, empty list I had created and changed to Access view, and from which I imported the other lists and created my query, was empty, and my list of task lists in the left side-bar didn't have my query-result-list).

How do I do what I want, w/ or w/out Access?  Thanks!


C#: How to Add Item to SharePoint list using web services? One of the field is a choice field.


I have a code that looks something like this:



batch.SetAttribute("OnError", "Continue");
batch.SetAttribute("ListVersion", "1");
batch.SetAttribute("ViewName", "{GUID of my View}");

batch.InnerXml = "<Method ID='1' Cmd='New'>" +
"<Field Name='Title'>Something</Field>" +
"<Field Name='Status'>Something Else</Field> </Method>";

myList.UpdateListItems("{GUID of my List}", batch);


the field name "Status" is a choice field. When i execute this code, my program doesn't add anything to my sharePoint List. However when I remove the 

"<Field Name='Status'>Something Else</Field>

which means i'm left with this code:

How to pre-populate field values of ListB from ListA


I want to know if there is an easy way to the pre-populate field values to ListB from ListA. 

In ListA I have ColumnA, ColumnB and ColumnC.  In ListB, I have Column1, Column2 and Column3.

When I add a new item in ListB, Column1 is a lookup field tied to ColumnA.  So, if I select a value from the lookup list, I want it to automatically populate ColumnB value to Column2 and ColumnC value to Column3.  Can this be done without programming?

How to read a column of a sharepoint list to a text string field of infopath form?

My infopath form used to read these email addresses from a web service and web.config file. Now i would like to get these user email addresses from a contact list in a sharepoint server. I am trying to do this without writing any codes. Here is what i have done so far: 1. Adding a new "data connection to receive data from SharePoint library or List" where i selected Email Address column of the contact list. 2. I added a new Text Field and define a new rule with "Query using a data connection" defined above. When i try to access the newly created Text field above it always return empty as if the Query attached to it did not executed at all. What did i do wrong? Is there a better way? Thank you in advance for your help.
