I have a Sharepoint 2010 list with two columns "Title" and "multi-selection". with a submit button. List View

If I Enter Title and select 'One, Two and Four' then click submit new line Item is created with Selections as "One, Two, Four" as below enter image description here

Actually what I needed is list each Multi Selection as separate row

Name | Selection
-------- | --------
TestUser | One
TestUser | Two
TestUser | Four


You can use a SharePoint Designer workflow for this. The idea is to invoke the workflow as below

  1. InfoPath save item as One,Three,Four - Workflow auto start on the new item
  2. Workflow take One,Three,Four and update current item with One and creates a new item as Three,Four - Workflow auto start on the new item
  3. Workflow take Three,Four and update current item with Three and creates a new item as Four - Workflow auto start on the new item
  4. Inside the workflow check if comma is there. If no comma then do nothing

  • @SRon yeah all the hints there in my answer.. you need to do a bit of google.. start with looking for creating sharepoint designer workflow.. then look into string manipulation.. then creating new list item using SPD workflow.. – Amal Hashim Aug 9 '16 at 16:56
