I currently have a column which is a multi-choice lookup list, I'd like to create a row for each multi-choice items per row and group by the multi-choice column.

I've tried using XSLT to format the multi-choice strings (separated by ;#') using spxslt however I still cannot figure out the code for grouping.

An example of what I'm after

Application Lookup List



Document Library

DocNumber1 | MSWord; MSExcel




Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

This article on EndUserSharePoint explains how:

You basically need to create a linked data source to the lookup list and the main list with the join option.

Thanks, is it possible to hide the look-up list headers when the row count is 0, rather than displaying the header and dvt_2.empty? – user1142132 Jul 30 '13 at 22:53
You're in control of the XSL. Just change it. – teylyn Jul 31 '13 at 20:48
