Want to open edit form based on selection from a connected list webpart

Hello All -


I am looking to create a page for users to quickly view their active requests and be able to edit it (via the edit form) on the same page. Usually within InfoPath, this can be accomplished by connecting the list and the form webparts and telling the form the get the data from the list. This would allow users to select any item and the form pull in all of the specific details for that item.


I have my edit form and desired list webparts on the page and attempting to connect them so that the edit form shows the details for the selected item, but am running into issues. The form webpart requires a Item ID to know what to display (makes sense), but we won't know that until the user selects one to open. Is there something that I should enter in to that required field?


Thanks in advance!
