In a previous post I was looking for the formatting required to take a user back to a custom view of a list (instead of the default view for that list).

Jinxed was nice enough to provide me with a template:


I have finally figured out where to add this reformatted url using sharepoint designer but the problem I have now is that the link refers to a specific item in order to populate the display or edit form with the proper information. Currently the Url looks like this:


How do I modify this url to reference the {$thisnode/@ID} component but ALSO include the "?Source=web.com/list/lisname/viewname.aspx" Jinxed referenced?

Thanks as always!

Did you tried this,

  • I tried formatting the URL as you stated but SharePoint designer throws an error stating that a semicolon character was expected...and the form doesn't load after I publish the change.
