Create a Unique Records Drop Down List

  Asked By: Zackary    Date: Aug 05    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2408

I am working with Front Page Data View Web Parts. I would like to create a drop down of the different categories. Categories is just a choice field in my list. I want the drop down to show unique records only. I am not sure how to do this.

Is your questions related to show unique  records only or are you looking for something else.

Showing unique value in a data  view web  part I believe is not supported, there is no way to filter uniqueness. You will need to use a different approach.

If I understand your question, you cannot easily access the values
(categories) in a choice  field. However, you could add a Form Web Part to
the page  and then change it over to use a dropdown list. It would be hard
coded but it would work...
