How to get the cascaded Lookup columns in sharepoint 2010,Iam having requirement like i have two lists(Category List and Sub category list)..For each item in category list i have 5 different items in sub category list..

So if i select one item(ex:Desktop) in Category list,the next column dropdown has to come corresponding items of sub category list which relates to item(Desktop) in category list..

Iam using three lists here 1)Category 2)Sub Category 3)Ticket calling category and sub category title columns as lookup columns in Ticket List..

i have searched some sites like http://www.sharepointboris.net/js/spcd/ but didnt find the solution

Could anyone help me achieve this?

Thanks, Naresh.

Check out SPServices Jquery library which provides cascading dropdown functionality among many others: http://spservices.codeplex.com/documentation

Its can also be done in InfoPath, I highly recommend SPservices though.

@naresh if this codeplex module helped you, you should add it as answer and mark it as answer as soon as you can –  Anders Rask Dec 21 '11 at 20:46

InfoPath is probably the easier solution to implement.

I've used a custom field for this request in SP 2007. I don't know for sure if you can use it in SP 2010.

the questions was about cascaded lookup fields. the link you have provided is about cascaded dropdown list so it makes a copy of the text and actually does not provide a real lookup –  GillouX Jan 19 '12 at 15:45
    
of course I was speaking about the Naresh link and not the one provided by Sven Gillis –  GillouX Feb 1 '12 at 10:43

If you don't mind using the Metadata, I suggest you the best way to do the Category-Subcategory-Item senario at here.
