How to set the value of a query field for a secondary list data connection in InfoPath 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I guess that I am a dummy, but I just can't see how to set the value of a query field that I want to use for a filter. I have a simple parent/child pair of sharepoint lists. The main list of the form is the parent. The parent key is a lookup field in the child list. How do I get the parent key value into the query field of the child list???

  • I think that it may be important to note that this infopath form is readonly because it is the default displayForm for a sharepoint list.

  • Hello Rkushner,

    In order to set the parent key value into the query field of the child list, you would need to setup a rule - "Set a FIeld's Value" which would allow you to do so.

  • That was one of the very first things that I tried, and tried and tried. But it didn't work for me.

  • Hello Rkushner,

    I would suggest to open a support case with Microsoft to troubleshoot the issue further.
