Another help request with SPFilterDropdown

Dec 3, 2013 at 8:58 PM
I'm hoping someone can see what I am missing with my attempt to use SPFilterDropdown. I've been reading a lot of forums and discussions, but I'm still stymied.

in my current list I has a dropdown called Approving Manager (Approving_x0020_Manager). I'm trying to filter this dropdown with only active managers in the Approving Managers list.
This list consists of:
Display name        Static Name               Column type
Lookup Name         Title                   Single line of text   
Manager Name        Manager_x0020_Name      Person or Group   
Active              Active                  Yes/No  
My call is pretty simple:
relationshipList: "Approving Managers", 
relationshipListColumn: "Title", 
columnName: "Approving_x0020_Manager", 
CAMLQuery: "<Eq><FieldRef Name='Active' /><Value Type='Boolean'>True</Value></Eq>", 
debug: true
In the CAML Query, I've also tried Boolean values of 1, Yes

No errors are reported, but the list is not filtered. Any suggestions are appreciated

The function isn't built to work with Person or Group columns. They also can't be lookup column targets.

OK. Thanks for the clarification.
