Ive spent just about all of my day doing what should be simple i think. I have a drop down list (list1) in an infopath 2010 form that pulls from a SharePoint list. How do I filter another SharePoint list based on the currently selected item (from list1).

To be honest I cant even set a textbox to the current value of list1. I understand how to filter and add rules to infopath

You have to use filters. It isn't difficult to do, it just requires a lot of steps. Here are a couple examples:

http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/infopath-help/filter-the-data-that-is-displayed-in-a-control-HA010024281.aspx

  • Finally got it. The problem was, I was query a SharePoint list without using a field in my workflow. I guess it wasnt storing the value anywhere. This meant I wasnt able to use it as a filter. – dmce Jan 16 '14 at 17:24
