I have Sharepoint 2010 and I have jquery-1.9.1.min and jquery.SPServices-0.7.2.min loaded into my parent site's Shared Documents. It seems to be loading them properly.

I've tried the most simplistic example and I'm still get the following error. "Message: 'childColumnStatic' is undefined"

Here is the code I added into the header.

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript" src="/Franchising/Shared%20Documents/jquery-1.9.1.min.js"></script>
<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript" src="/Franchising/Shared%20Documents/jquery.SPServices-0.7.2.min.js"></script>

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
    $(document).ready(function() {
            relationshipList: "Product",
            relationshipListParentColumn: "Group",
            relationshipListChildColumn: "Title",
            parentColumn: "Group",
            childColumn: "Product",
            debug: true

I created the following tables.
Parent List: Group
1 Column: Title(single line Text)

Child List: Product
2 Columns:Title(Single line text), Group(Lookup of Parent list)

Main List: Sample
3 Columns: Title(Single line text), Group(Lookup to Parent List), Product(Lookup to Child List)

I have been referencing this also.$().SPServices.SPCascadeDropdowns

Thanks you for your help in advance!!

From their site apparently the version of jQuery you are using does not work with SPServices...

"2013-02-05 - SPServices will not work with jQuery 1.9.1 due to a bug in that release."

SPServices on codeplex

I went back to 1.8.3 and it worked! Thanks!! – Nathan H. Apr 12 '13 at 17:56

If you need to use the latest jQuery versions, you can use this utility i just released that doesn't need SPServices anymore.

You can use this utility on webpart pages, aspx pages and forms also.
