So I have 2 lists and I want to perform a Cascading dropdown for multiple selection.
Using the list below, if a user Selects "Honda" in my dropdown form, I want a multiple-selection list box to be populated with "Yellow" and "Orange".

EX:
Car list
------------
Honda
Toyota
BMW

Color list
--------------
Honda      Yellow
Honda      Orange
BMW        Red
BMW        Green
BMW        Brown

Hello,

the steps are the same for a dropdown or a multi select field.

What are you struggling with? Is anything not working as expected? Which step?

cheers, teylyn

Using my example above, when I choose "Honda" from the dropdown in my infopath form,  the corresponding colors, "Yellow" and "Orange" don't appear in the multi-selection box.
