Infopath display lookup column value RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I have a Infopath 2010 form with which displays an employee record. Some of the columns are lookup from a sharepoint list.

    How can I display the value of the lookup column instead of Id in the form.
    The form has the main connection and the secondary connection for the lookup sharepoint lists.

    The sharepoint lookup column is set to "Title" in additional column settings. Add a column to show each of the additional fields are all unchecked.

    I searched google, but couldnt find an answer.

    I tried to do the way described in http://sharepointsolutions.com/sharepoint-help/blog/2011/11/get-infopath-to-display-lookup-column-value-not-id/ 

    But get error , since it works for repeated table. 

    Any Ideas?

  • Hi Venky,

    How did you create your look up  column? Which column type is the column which your look up column looks for?

    By my test, it is default behavior that the InfoPath form display the value of the lookup column.
