BDC Columns - Multi Value? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does the default BCS column-type allow multiple values in SP2010? The one-value BDC column in 2007 was real limiting.

  • Yes it does. You can show multiple columns from the external type in the lookup picker and you can show multiple columns from the extenral type in the list that references it. I just tried this out to check. You can check it too, start here to find the download of the public beta: http://SharePoint2010.Microsoft.com
