I am trying to hard code a user group into a CAML query's where clause. The reason is so that I can apply additional criteria when the user is in one group, and something else if they are in another group. I don't want to check the "Assigned To" field for a value, I just want to hard code a user group in it. How do I do that? Thank you. Here is the CAML :

                    <Membership Type="CurrentUserGroups">
                      <FieldRef Name="AssignedTo"/>
                <GroupBy Collapse="FALSE">
                    <FieldRef Name="AssignedTo"/>
                    <FieldRef Name="AssignedTo"/>
                    <FieldRef Name="Status"/>
                    <FieldRef Name="Priority"/>

Another solution is to add another people or group field in the list and populate it with a workflow. Then, use that field in between the membership type elements instead of "AssignedTo".

This is a long shot but try just entering the name of the group in between the Membership tags. You may need to format it with the group ID, then ;# and finally the group name.

Thank you Alex. I tried 14;#Division_x0020_Managers in between the membership tags but wasn't successful. –  Anonymous Jul 5 '10 at 17:10
