Question:
How do you set a multi-column select list to a table field


Answer:
In order to set a multi-column select list to a table field you need a file connection configured.
Please refer to this article if you have not yet created a file connection: knowledgebase/article/KBA-35850


   1. Open configurations page from the web client and select the "File Cabinets" plugin.


   2. Select the file cabinet you are going to use the table field for and select the edit icon.


   3. Select the desired table field from the database fields tab and then select "Configure."


   4. The file connection will display the available number of columns. Add a row for each column in the select list using the "+" symbol and then select "OK" at the bottom right.


   5. Select the "Dialogs" tab and then select the "Store Dialog" to be used with the table fields.


   6.  For each field that you wish to include the multi-column select list, double click the field to edit it.


   7. Choose your multi-column select list from the available options and what column the field is associated with. Then select "Show filter configuration."


   8. Here, you can map the remaining columns to dialog fields used. 


   9. Go back to the web client and refresh the page. When you go to store documents using the store dialog associated with the Multi-Column select list for your table field, the database entry will populate the values from your configured list.
