Hi Marc,


Good Morning . I have configured mulilevel cascade as per the below article.
But we are configred using Sitecolumns.

http://spservices.codeplex.com/wikipage?title=%24%28%29.SPServices.SPCascadeDropdowns

I am having problem with 3level Cascading DDL in sharepoint with duplicate values.
Countries
India
Pakistan
USA
UK

Region

Region Country
South - India
West - India
North - India
East - India
South - Pakistan
West - Pakistan
North - Pakistan
East - Pakistan

State region Country_
S1 South India
W1 West India
N1 North INdia
E1 East India
S1 South Pakistan
W1 West Pakistan
N1 North Pakistan
E1 East Pakistan


Cascading in Employee Information list is working fine when user selects India in Country, , it displays the related values (South, West, North and East) in Region DDL .But If I select South., region ddl should display S1 but it displaying values S1 , S1 .One S1 is India -> South -> S1 , One is from Pakistan --> South-> S1 I think.

Could you please correct me If I am doing anything wrong here.

You're not showing your code, but my guess is that you've got the wrong columns in the options.

BTW, your State list doesn't need to have Country in it, and in fact, it'll just make it harder to maintain.

I don't see anything wrong, but your list names are a little out of the ordinary. Try taking a look at the traffic with Firebug or Fiddler to see if you can get any clues there.

Ah, I bet I know what it is. Since you have duplicates in the Region and State names, you should use the matchOnId option. Check the docs:
