Cascading update in Infopath form using XML data
We often come across with the requirement to do dynamic update. Since SharePoint is new. I worked a lot on finding this solution. Here we go simple steps for this….
Create a XML file like in this format …
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<State value="Tamil Nadu"/>
<State value="Andhra Pradesh"/>
<State value="Western Province"/>
<State value="Eastern Province"/>
Open InfoPath form and create the Country and State dropdown list boxes.
Add the xml data which we created from the InfoPath form.
Give the xml data name and click finish …
Right click list box of country and go to properties
Select the xml data source and Select the Country as value.
Similarly go to state properties and click to add the xml data and filter data to country ….
And now click preview to see the changes…
