Thanks Matt for the help. I do not think it is any of the variables, it works but I have to click the Hyperlink created in the list view data connection set up in Step 3 of the page I ref. in the question. The parent custom list view has a data source connecting to a Sql server, with a query that is basic, Select * from tblItemsHistoryLookup with it's filter set to fldItemID = ‘txtItemUID’ (a control textbox on the page). The user enter a UID and using a command button with submit behavior set to true, I filter the recordset which then populates the listview simply by refreshing the parent DVWP. It is at this point, at least in SP2007, the Parameters are set or reset to equal the fields from the recordset.
The code to pass the data to the New form for the inventory list is below:
<xsl:text xmlns:ddwrt="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WebParts/v2/DataView/runtime" ddwrt:nbsp-preserve="yes" disable-output-escaping="yes">&nbsp;</xsl:text>
I have looked at this and the parameter bindings countless times and can’t see anything wrong with it although some of the parameters are listed twice with different locations. I deleted the ones set to none but no change in the output.
It works when I click the SP generated script to do a post back, which sees the data values from the SQL query string.
This is where the problem is, without clicking the hyperlink created by SP in the DVWP, the link on the page is missing the data values from the parent:https://sharepoint.../sites/DV6PMRS/dpm ... .aspx?Item
ID=&Item Description=&Mfr Item Name=&Mfr Part Number=&Manufacturer Name=&Service Life=&AcqDate=&Service Life Increment=&Category=&Category Type=&Type Classification=
Once I click the hyperlink, it displays the data in the query string and the new form opens and populates with these values in the txt boxes.https://sharepoint.../sites/DV6PMRS/dpm ... .aspx?Item
ID=S901248&Item Description=DESKTOP&Mfr Item Name=GX 755&Mfr Part Number=GX 755&Manufacturer Name=DELL&Service Life=60&AcqDate=2008-02-20T07:00:00Z&Service Life Increment=Months&Category=11&Category Type=54&Type Classification=1
I am at a loss with this, I have compared the page I created in 2007 with this one in 2010 and everything seems to be there, but it will not post the data without clicking the hyperlink. It’s as if I have something turned off that makes this happen automatically.
Again thank you for any assistance,
