I have two lists in SharePoint 2013. List1 and List2. List1 has two fields(Name and EmployeeID). In list2 user enter ID # manually but we need to validate against list1 ID# if it matches I need to create a 2nd validation for the name based on ID. If it doesn't match they can't submit the form. Any Idea

Add your own JavaScript code in a new PreSaveAction function on the Form

There you read your other list, do your checks and return a true value when all is fine

  • No I never read questions. On Form #2 you need to add JavaScript that reads List1 , you could display all of List1 IN Form2, that saves you the reading, but you still have to write the PreSaveAction May 4, 2017 at 19:49
