Quick Edit Mode and InfoPath form RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a SharePoint list that has a InfoPath customized form.
    The InfoPath form has two drop down fields that have a Data Connection to a another support SharePoint list

    The connection allows the second drop down list to be filtered by what the user chooses in the first drop down list (cascading fields).

    The data in the support SharePoint list is updated.

    If a user edits an item using the InfoPath form all is good BUT if a user edits an item in the Quick edit mode the drop down list fields are not updated with the changes in the support list.

    I think this is because if InfoPath is not used the data connection is not invoked and the support list changes are not pushed down to the consuming SharePoint list.

    Is there anyway a user can edit an item directly in the SharePoint list and still get the data updated in support lists that use a data connection in the InfoPath form?
