I try to filter my sharepoint list based on some filters. Because the checkbox option "Allow Multiple Selections" does not work I am trying to build some own implementation using the QueryFilter functionality.


This is quite easy, but no I want to filter on a the additional lookup column which in my case is called Skill:ID but this will not work.


Who can help me on this issue?

Best regards,

Okay ofcourse I continued to search for a solution which I found by obseving the html sourcecode of the list. Solution for my example: Skill_x003a_ID = Skill:ID URL?FilterName=Skill_x003a_ID&FilterMultiValue=5;12;23 – Francois Dec 13 '12 at 15:14
