Forms: how to create a list lookup without a filter

Hello,

I would like to do a simple list lookup and display the results in a choice (multi-checkbox) control.  Is that possible?

I tried to setup a simple lookup in a dropdown but could not use =lookup without a filter.  Is there a way to lookup without a filter so that I may display all the contents of a column in a list?

Thanks

Are you putting a lookup control on your form? 

This allows you to simply pick a list on your site and even pick a view (if you don't want to use the default view).

You can even set it to use a checkbox format

Ta-Da!

Thank you.  That was embarrassingly easy.  Everyone starts somewhere.

Another quick question.  If I created a radio button "All" is there a way to create a rule that would auto-fill in all the selections?

I would even be ok with starting with all selections checked and then I uncheck the few I don't want.

Thanks!

Hey, no problem! That's what we're all here for

As for your followup question, that is accomplished with Javascript. Here are some great resources on that:

Auto-check Multi-Selection Checkbox (List-Lookup)

Feel free to let me know if you have more questions on implementing that solution!
