FindItems function

This article describes the formula syntax and usage of the FindItems function in JungleDocs.

Syntax

FindItems("listName"; "columnName"; "value"; ["additionalParameter"; "additionalParameterValue"]) 

The FindItems function syntax has the following arguments:

  • ListName   Required. A SharePoint list name. List URL is also supported to specify the list on another site.
  • ColumnName   Required. A SharePoint column name (internal column name is recommended).
  • Value   Required. The value to find items by. 
  • AdditionalParameter   Optional. An additional parameter: a SharePoint column name (lookup columns, choice columns, and Boolean columns are also supported) or a date condition.
  • AdditionalParameterValue   Optional. The value of the additional parameter (text or number).

Remarks

  • To use the FindItems function, you need to create a repeated section.
  • Additional parameters are supported in JungleDocs 3.6 and later.
  • You can use an unlimited number of additional parameters in a formula.
