get values from another sharepoint list

I have a form that makes use of three lists:


List1 - Purchase Request

List 2 - Purchase Request Details

List 3 - Project Business Unit

List 4 - Project 


The form has List 1 as the primary list with List 2 as the sublist.


List 2 has a column Project Business Unit that is a lookup to List 3 column ProjectBU. The Project Business Unit column has a value like 1111 - CORP which consists of a project code and business unit joined together. List 3 also has the values for project and business unit as separate columns.


From the project column on List 3 I need to access List 4 to retrieve some values using the project column on list 4.


I need to retrieve each of the values seperately and show them in the List 2 on the form as soon as the project / business unit is selected.


I have tried doing this via a calculation on the sublist column using a CAML query but I always get a null returned.


window.projectCode = [[@SubListCurrentRow.EPFRDetails.PCMU]].toString();
window.project = window.projectCode.substring(0,4);

return  [[@Web.GetFirstValueForQuery('Project', '<Where><Eq><FieldRef Name="Title" /><Value Type="Number">[window.project]</Value></Eq></Where>', 'StrategicPriority')]];


Any help would be appreciated.


Thanks Sandy
