• Sharepoint 2010 Foundation (no Infopath!)
  • List Form (made a copy of NewItem.aspx and customized it, renamed it) - Save and Cancel buttons are available.
  • Also added an additional Submit button (Sharepoint form action) to experiment with what options I have with both buttons.
  • Using server side validation on a column.
  • some columns are required.

The entire thing works great (all validation). The only thing I have left is to send the user to a different page when all validation has passed. Right now, it simply returns the user to the same page to enter in another record.

I've tried various techniques to re-direct (GenFireServer changes, ?Source=) and they all work but what they do is send the user to the thank you page and ignore the server-side validation (it doesn't submit to the list but you don't have an option to fix).

Don't use the Sharepoint Form submission button, use the default Save button that is generated when you create a new form. Then when you give the URL to the end user, ensure you put into the ?source= at the end of the URL. This worked for us. I might explore building my own source string in the form so I can send a friendlier URL to the end user.
