I'm having a few problems with the InfoPath Multiple-Selection List Box control and I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction.
I was able to set up an InfoPath entry form to populate a SP list and then use another form to create a reporting function by pulling data from it. What we're tying to do is have our development people add entries to a SP list for our various systems and then have a way to retrieve the info based on role, individual, system, etc. or other criteria. I can populate the Multiple-Selection List Boxes with data via the data connections file for the list box and view entires in a repeating table, but that's as far as I can go. I can make the cascading Drop-down List controls work (with dependencies) - problem is, they only allow one entry selection per control.
It appears that S.Y.M. Wong-A-Tong has set up a way in which to have cascading Multiple-Selection List Box controls (http://www.bizsupportonline.net/infopath2010/videos/infopath-2010-multiple-selection-list-box-cascading.htm) and I was wondering if anyone else has done the same?
I would love to have users bring up the form, select one or more systems, select one or more developers, and so forth and then run a report to find out assignments. It seems doable.
On a side note: I'm also having a problem where my checkbox entries disappear so I can't select more than one at a time. I'm thinking it has to do with the Condition statement (None-Rule runs when field changes) so I wonder if I need to "break" that condition and instead commit changes via a button or something. A "Reset" button is probably necessary too if the person wants to redo their selections, etc.
I've learned a lot from these boards - I've also learned that it's hard to find answers that are specific to my situation.
Many thanks in advance!
