Filtering by SharePoint repeating data in your InfoPath 2013 list item form

That was a tortuous post title! Another post to help me remember.

I created an InfoPath 2013 form to add a new list item. One of the fields was a lookup field using a column from another list.

The lookup field was a Person field, which in InfoPath looks like repeating data.

I needed the dropdown list to show values where there was nothing in this Person field. It took me a bit of messing about to get it right.

The trick is to filter on the group. In my instance, I needed to show all entries where there was nothing in the User field for that list item.

The logic required was¬†“All occurrences of Person are blank”, on the List Item row.

Hope this helps someone…
