Hi all,

Step 1 : Download the Jquery file jquery-1.7.2.min.js by Jquery.com. Download jquery.SPServices-0.7.1a.zip from the Jquery Library for SharePoint Codeplex site. Upload jquery-1.7.2.min.js and jquery.SPServices-0.7.1a.min.js (from the zip file) to a document library.

Step 2 : Create your relational List and in this case i will create Three Custom Lists

– Countries List (The Parent List)


– Cities List (The Child List) which has has one field in addition to the Title field; the Country field. This is a lookup field from the Countries list.


– Hotels List (The Grandchild List) which has a Title field and a City field. The City field is a lookup field from the Cities list.


– Vacation Plans list which will contains cascading Dropdown which has Three lookup fields from Countries , Cities , and Hotels list
