Auto-Populating Catalog RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have been asked to create an "application" with SharePoint to keep track of all the items we have in stock. I wanted to create some kind of catalog as well, so if you put in an item with a product ID which is already in the catalog, the items specifications would auto complete. however, if you put in an item which is not in the catalog, it would add this item to the catalog. also I want the items to exist only once in the catalog.

    This all sounds pretty complicated to me, but I know it's possible. The thing is that I'm fairly new to SharePoint and I'm struggling to do simple task, like creating a workflow to copy information from one list to the other.

    I know I have to check if an item exists in the catalog with the same value of the item that is currently created, and if it does that I have to terminate the workflow. But that is pretty much all I got.

    Btw, I'm using SharePoint 2010

    I would really appreciate if someone could explain me with this..

    Thank you in advance.
