I have a Nintex field based on a Site Column that is a Lookup. To clarify, the site column is connected to a list at the root of the site collection and this list provides the lookup values for the field.
I enabled this Site Column for Multiple Selections, and then I changed the Appearance settings on the Nintex Form to show checkboxes. All of this works fine.
Now, I want to have another field require a value if a certain value in that list is in the list of selected values.
I have seen multiple posts regarding how to validate if a check box is checked using isArray, and how to Array check box values,etc. and I have attempted the following validation rule on the ReportsTo field:
Nothing is happening. I suspect its because the source field is not actually an array because the source field is not a Choice field, but a Lookup field, but I am not certain.
Can you put the values of a multi select lookup field from SharePoint into an Array and evaluate as above?
Could I get a little more info. When you say "I have a Nintex field based on a Site Column that is a Lookup" what type of Nintex field have you connected to the site look up column?
I created a calculated value with the following expression:
contains(parseLookup(LookupColumn), 'Reports To Change')
Lookup column being the site column lookup.
So I get either true or false in the calculated value field but it is in string format not Boolean.
tbxReportsExist being the calculated value field. ReqdTbx is the single line that is required if "Reports To Change" has been selected - regardless of if any of the other options have been selected.
No need for any kind of array.
