      My situation is i have a cases list and on creating new cases a user will select a customer with drop down. Based on Value customer selected it should read a column in customer list called Service Contract if the value of this column is PO Required then show a notification that says Please note this customer requires a PO to save ticket.

      SO i have my main list Cases with a lookup called Customers

      I have Customers list which holds the column Service Contract this is a choice field

      Ideally i would love to make the PO filed on cases required if this is true and message is displayed not sure if that would be possible.

      Any help in the right direction to accomplish this would be great.. thanks..

      Sorry for the delay – it seems I’m not getting all the notifications from my forum.

      I have a list “Customers” with the customer name in the Title field, and a field “ServiceContract” that may contain the text “PO Required”.

      Then I have a lookup form my DFFS enabled form into the “Customers” list in the Title field – pulling in the customer name.

      Then I have this rule in DFFS NewForm: Customer is changed > Run these functions = customerChanged (see attached image).

      In the custom js tab, I have this code:

      function customerChanged(){
      	var sVal = $("#dffs_Customer").find("option:selected").val(), res;
      	res = spjs_getItemByID({"listName":"Customers","id":sVal,"viewFields":["ServiceContract"]});
      	if(res !== null){
      		if(res.ServiceContract === "PO Required"){
      			spjs.dffs.dlgBox("This customer requires a PO.",true);

      Change “Customer”, “Customers” and “ServiceContract” to match your field and list name.

      Please note that this code example uses “spjs.dffs.dlgBox” added in v4.350 – change this to an “alert(…)” if you use another version.

      Hope this helps,

      res = spjs_getItemByID({“listName”:”Customers”,”id”:sVal,”viewFields”:[“Service_x0020_Contract”]});

      could i possible change this to lookup a list on another site????

      res = spjs_getItemByID({"listName":"Accounts","listBaseUrl":"/Intranet/crm","id":sVal,"viewFields":["Contract"]});

      In case anyone else needs this here is the trick for a cross site lookup column
