Enabling a list view to be a lookup target

Note: This article has done its job, and will be retiring soon. To prevent "Page not found" woes, we're removing links we know about. If you've created links to this page, please remove them, and together we'll keep the web connected.

For security purposes, list views in custom Lists tools are initially disabled as targets for lookups from other tools. Note that in addition to enabling a selected list view to be a lookup target, the tool designer must also enable the tool be a lookup target.

  1. Open the Designer.

  2. Click the view you want to enable as a lookup target.

  3. Click the Properties tab.

  4. Check Allow this view to provide data to lookups defined in this workspace.

  5. Save and publish your changes.
