How to get Author display name in Combobox using with Sharepoint List.

Hello, I'm new.

 

I'm trying to show Auther display name in Combobox using with SharePoint List.

So I used Choices function, But it shows "Outlook Customer Manager....".

 

How can I resolve it?

 

Thank you.

Re: How to get Author display name in Combobox using with Sharepoint List.

You’ll need to do three things:

1. Ensure the AuthoredBy column in SharePoint is a Choices column. Supply it with names of valid authors.

2. Check the datafield property of the card your combo box is grouped in. It should be your SharePoint field name AuthoredBy

3. Check the Items property of your combo box. It should be either Choices(Parent.Default) or Choices(AuthoredBy). One of those two.

Hello mdevaney,

 

Thank you for your quick reply.

I'm sorry for not explaining.

 

Its combobox is located on BrwoserScreen. Not in cards.

I'd like to use as filter by Author.

 

Thank you

In that case I think you just need to set the Datasource of your combo box to your SharePoint list name, and then, change the Items property of your combo box to Choices(AuthoredBy) or Choices(your_sharepointlist_name.AuthoredBy).

Of course, the Authored by column must be a choices column.
