Lookup question

  Asked By: Aaditya    Date: Mar 01    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 519

I've got a list where I'm supplying two column values: objectname and object
path. I'd like to be able to have a second list utilize a lookup column
pointing to objectname. This would then automatically pull the correct
objectpath value based upon the selected objectname value via a calculated
column. The only problem is that calculated columns don't support lookup
columns. Is something like this doable using an alternate method? I was
looking at a SPD data view, but I don't know much about them.

It could be done fairly easily with a custom field type, but I don't know of any
way to do it out of the box.
