RE: Sharepoint Infopath-2013- Autopopulate certain fields based on input entered by user in text box

Hi Folks,


I am currently using SharePoint infopath-2013 form in my SharePoint list. I need help in this part as mention below:

Query: Auto Populate certain fields ( textboxes ) based on user input in another text box.

Example: If User enters number in textbox -ID, then remaining textboxes such as product name, product region etc... must fetch values from another data source list.

Issue: I have created the secondary connection as list and tried using action (set field value ) for that text box - ID. When i gave the manual input in text box - ID , values are not populating in remaining textboxes.

Please help me out with your comments.

Hi @keerthanak-3164 ,

When creating an InfoPath form for a SharePoint list, you may need to bring in SharePoint lookup fields into the form. Did your first data connection succeed?

Please refer to this blog for more information about how to pull in SharePoint lookup “Additional Fields” into InfoPath form:

Hi @ElsieLu-MSFT,

Thanks for your reply. I have already made data connections and everything in InfoPath form.

I hope Lookup will not be required in my case, Since i am going to refer the columns with data connection. What i need is if user gives an value in textbox then other textboxes should be auto-populated with values from secondary connection.

Example: If User enters number in textbox -ID, then remaining textboxes such as product name, product region etc... must fetch values from another data source list.

Please look into my point again and share your feedback.
