SQL contingent on a Select2 field



I'm trying to trigger a calculated field contingent on a select2 field  or a hidden calculated field and I can't make it work. 

This is what I have: 

Field1(Cascading Dropdown Field for value: Field_ID) (converted into a select2 element using $('select[name="InsertRecordField1"]').select2();)

VirtualField1 (Calculated Field) (Using the following sql SELECT Field_Name FROM Table WHERE [@field:Field1] = Field_ID)

The SQL doesn't notice the changes made to Field1 nor its initial value on page load.

I tried using JavaScript and SQL to give Field1's value to a another hidden Virtual Field and trigger the SQL with the following code:


document.getElementById('caspioNote').onmousemove = function() {myFunction();};

function myFunction() {

var i = document.getElementsByName('InsertRecordField1')[0].value;

document.getElementsByName('cbParamVirtual2')[0].value = i;




SQL for VirtualField1:

SELECT Field_Name FROM Table WHERE [@cbParamVirtual2] = Field_ID


The JavaScript works fine but the SQL does not seem to notice the changes in VirtualField2

This happens to other cascading fields too when I use VirtualField2 as the Parent Field.


How could I archive this? Thanks in advance

Hi Roderick,

Can you please try to use this formula:
SELECT Field_Name FROM Table WHERE '[@cbParamVirtual2]'= target.[@field:ID]

Just get the "[@field:ID]" in the field picker of your Calculated Values- Formula field. Also, just make sure that the value of the "[@cbParamVirtual2]" is equal to your "[@field:ID]" for you to get your desired result.

I hope that helps.
