Thursday, April 26, 2012 10:08 PMI would like to create an SPD workflow that is started when an InfoPath form is submitted to a library. The workflow will create an item in a another list. That other list has a field that has a multi choice column type with check boxes. Within the IP form I have a field that is using the multiple-selection control type. When trying to create the item everything seems to be going fine with the exception to the multi-select field. The data shows up, but when you open the item the check boxes are not checked. Also the column filter doesn't filter the data even though it appears in the list. I have verified that the data being pushed into the field is exact with the data choices of the choice field. Any one know how to get the check-boxes to be checked?

Well... I came up with a working solution. I did not end up using the multiple-selection list box. Instead I used individual check boxes. I changed the fields to strings. On the SPD workflow I used the ";#" as the delimiter for each field. That successfully pushed the data into the multiple choice field within SharePoint. I also noticed that the first time I tried this I had a space inside the string building in SPD. This caused the push to fail.

Based on your update it sounds like you are all set - is this correct?
