SPCascadeDropdowns: Cannot save the newly created record

Jun 16, 2011 at 4:30 PM

Hi! First of all I must say I love this library!

Now I have an issue with the SPCascadeDropdowns function. The cascading dropdown works, but when I click OK to save the new record, I get "An unexpected error has occurred".

I really hate that error message, it doesn't say anything! Did anyone get a similar error?


A few other facts, in case they help:

- Debug mode is on, I got an error message at first, but fixed it.

- The dropdown is cascading properly. There's only 1 relationship so far.


Any useful info, thoughts or even guesses you can offer will be greatly appreciated!

That message is likely to occur if the Lookup column in the the current list doesn't use the column in the relationshipList as its source. It would be the case if the IDs in the relationshipList and the current list don't match.
