I'm looking for a solution of the following question.

I have a mainlist with information about people.


Name -- OrgaLevel1 -- OrgaLevel2

Wilson -- ... -- ...

I have also a list with the organisation of a company:


OrgaLevel1 -- Orgalevel2

Orga A -- Orga AA Orga A -- Orga AB Orga B -- Orga BA Orga B -- Orga BA

I like to build the form for the mainlist like this




The values of the OrgaLevel2-DropDown should depend of the value I've selected in the OrgaLevel2-DropDown.

So if I selected OrgaA there should only be Orga AA and Orga AB in the second DropDown-List.

I hope, I have explained my problem understandable?! I can imagine, that this problem is quite easy but right now my synapse had a blockade. Solutions like http://cascadefilterlookup.codeplex.com/ are in our environment not possible.

  • Why not possible (e.g. only sandbox web parts) as this may have impact on what solutions people can propose
