I have a lookup field , and selected "Add a column to show each of these additional fields" whereby  6 additional columns were selected. However the data for these columns are not shown in form when designed with form designer. How can this be fixed ?

    Hi,

    Most likely, you need to add the additional fields into the target content type. Navigate to the List Settings -> select the content type and click "Add from existing site or list columns" link under the list of columns.

    [#2]: Then navigate to the content type settings, remove the lookup field from the content type and then add it again. It will be added with all additional fields.

    [#4]: Are you sure that the content type, the form of which you're editing, is listed in the list of content types next to additional fields:

    After re-adding the lookup column to the content type, restart Forms Designer. The additional fields will appear on the left side, in the list of available fields.

    [#5]: Hi, Yes I am sure. The problem is when I drag those fields to the form designer and save. When the form is opened, only the lookup value is shown, Lookup:Quantity etc etc is not shown. it is just blank.

    [#6]: Please, note that the additional fields are read-only. You cannot use them on a new form. As for edit forms, they will change after saving only.

    [#7]: Ok I didnt want to edit those fields, it is purely for reference purposes, for example if I had an invoice number field, when invoice number is selected the associated details are shown instantly, so there is no ambiguity. But i understand what is possible now. Thanks.

    Wonderful! That is a great success. I think the designer for sharepoint should to share some more smaple pics and also they need to check td {border: 1px solid #ccc;}br {mso-data-placement:same-cell;}best college paper writing services to finish their writing task including designing project.
