InfoPath 2010–Looking Up On People Columns

This one kept me frustrated for a while…

If you are attempting to add a rule in InfoPath to lookup a field in a list based on a “user” column (such as CreatedBy), the comparison you need to make is “Contains” NOT “Is Equal To”.

So you select the field in the list, then add the filter where “CreatedBy” contains username():

Works like a treat once you figure this out, very frustrating otherwise Smile
