I have 5 dvwps - Country, State, City, Company, Contact.

-User clicks on Country dvwp which filters State dvwp -Selects State which filters City dvwp....down to Company.

Company dvwp filters contacts - user clicks on Edit for a contact and it opens new Edit form - once user hits SAVE it redirects back to original page - BUT the selection is lost - they have to click through all dvwps to see their contact change.

I can use values and filter record but then it will only show the one record that changed and lose the selection process - can someone find a way to maintain each dvwp's SELECTION?

Thanks! This has stumped many a google search, SHarePoint Forum search, and at least 3 consultants.

How are the DVWP's being filtered? Are you using a Query String, Cookie or some other method? – iOnline247 Sep 21 '11 at 4:33
Using "Add Connection" between dvwps. – user4901 Sep 21 '11 at 14:10
I've never seen anyone able to control the postback when using connections. However, if you used query strings or a cookie, you'd easily be able to do that. – iOnline247 Sep 22 '11 at 19:06
