SPServices typeahead feature - self-referential possible?

Feb 10, 2014 at 3:24 PM
I was wondering if it is possible to use the same list in which you are creating the new item to look up the auto-populate function? I was trying to do this the other day and it wouldn't let me, but I was thinking perhaps I was just missing something. If it cannot currently do this, it would be a great feature to add - often times subjects/titles are recurring but for legitimate reasons they need to be text entry fields instead of lookup columns. This would help users re-enter titles consistently.

Scott:

I haven't tested this, but I can't think of a reason why it wouldn't work.

Ok- after a bit more tweaking, I got it to work. It was just a configuration thing, making sure it was pointed at the programmatic name of the sourceColumn but used the display name for the columnName.
