Pretty much since I started with MOSS2007 (and back in the pre 2007 days too), I’ve required smarter drop down choices for my columns. Basically, I needed a secondary drop down list filtered based on the choice from a primary drop down list – the whole category/sub category thing. Seems amazing to me that it is not available out of the box.
But why bother now? Fellow aussies and clever guys at DataCogs Infomation Technology have provided the best workaround yet via two well coded custom field controls , all packaged up into a solution – too damn easy!
This for me is the mother of all clever workarounds. It is a snap to install and activate and source code is provided. What’s more, the primary/secondary lists can be on different sites. How good is that!
So, thanks, fellas, you have saved me writing a long blog post 🙂
