Forms: cascading drop-down filter not working with spaces in the choices

Jump to solution

I have two drop-downs. One is locations from locations list. Second drop-down is for Names filtered from the selected location. The locations with no spaces work just fine and the names for that location are shown: examples: ALocation, BLocation. The locations that have spaces do not return any names; examples: A Location, B Location. Some locations have three or four spaces. Any ideas?

It appears that your lists are not setup properly.
You are only using 1 list to look up when you will need two.
Follow this tutorial exactly and it wont matter if you have spaces or not.

I had followed that article and already had two lists. When I reviewed the steps for the second list, I discovered that it was required to use a lookup field between the two lists. 

 

4.b. Select Lookup (information already on this site) in The type of information in this column is section.

 

My cascading drop-downs are working correctly now. 

 

Thanks for stressing to follow that "exactly".
