      I am using this solution to drill down a few levels and get to a specific item in a related list. Once the user finds the item they want, I display several fields to them as read only. They are only using it to identify the correct item in a process.

      However, when they submit the form, those values they drilled down to are submitted with the form. On the one hand I just don’t need them in the list, they are only for reference. But also I am getting an error because the final field I display after all the cascading is a multiline text in the source list, which has to be a single line of text in the destination list, and results in this error: Invalid text value. A text field contains invalid data. Please check the value and try again.

      Do you have any suggestions for how to handle this scenario?

      Unfortunately this plugin needs to be attached to actual form fields in a list, but you can clear the values before save by adding a function in Custom JS like this:

      function dffs_PreSaveAction(){
      	var arr = ["Level1","Level2"];
          return true;

      Change “Level1” and “Level2” with your fields.
