I realise that for lists it’s not possible to create vlookup associations without the extra column workaround due to the item ID not yet being created, but does this logic also carry though for document libraries?
At the point the form loads (editform, not newform as in the case of a list), the ID of the new document is accessible in the form of;
I thought this was the case, however on the setup I’ve got I see the following;
Add new document>
File upload dialog, ok
‘vLookupAssociations’ just shows as an empty single line of text field (as if it were on a plain old sharepoint form. All other dffs functionality works correctly)
Edit properties of same file>
‘vLookupAssociations’ field loads all associated items from the child list into the area on the form as per config.
The process I have at the moment is to go back into editing (or viewing) the document properties after initial upload, but it would be nice if it was possible in one hit.
