SPD Data View Webpart - Collapse group by default not working!

  Asked By: Helen    Date: Jan 03    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 3473

I have an SPD data view webpart that I want to group on a certain field. When I
select "collapse group by default" the webpart opens with the groups expanded.
The plus minus icon next to the field value is a plus. So I click the plus, and
it turns to a minus but nothing happens since the groups are already expanded.
Then clicking the minus icon causes the group to collapse. Is there some parent
control that I need to set? What am I missing?

Are you sure you checked the collapse group by default on all the fields you
are grouping on in SPD? As I remember this needs to be set separately on
each field added to the GroupBy list.

I am only grouping on one field, but I did have another field that I was
grouping on, and I removed that one. Could it be some lingering code that SPD
didn't clean up?

Possibly. I normally find it best to remove all the groupings and sortings to
change things around.

It must have been a conflicting setting with another column or something. I
created a new DVWP and put everything and it's good to go now!
