Dear Experts,

I'm running SharePoint 2010, in here I have a list. In this list I have a choice column (dropdown).Is it possible to devise a URL that would

1) Launch a new list item entry form?

I have got this one done, like this:


2) I want a a value pre-populated in the mew item form for the choice list, i.e. in column "Picklist" I want "Value1" selected.

I know you can assign a default value to a column, however I need the default value to remain blank but have different URL's that start a new item with either Value1 or Value2 or.... pre-populated. So its kinda a template entry.

Appreciate you thoughts and solutions!

2nd part could be done by javascript only. you can do it in SharePoint Designer or in HTML Form web part: for instance, like here: http://blog-sharepoint.blogspot.com/2010/08/set-sharepoint-list-form-web-part-field.html
you also need to pass additional parameter with your url to take default value from. Hope you know javascript enough or at least you know people that know javascript :)
