None

N/A

Minimum: 0

Maximum: 1

Within a CHOICES element, each CHOICE element contains a value that appears in the list.

Remember that CAML is case-sensitive; the CHOICE and CHOICES elements are in all capital letters.

This example defines a Choice field with three choices.

<CHOICES>
  <CHOICE>Not Started</CHOICE>
  <CHOICE>In Progress</CHOICE>
  <CHOICE>Completed</CHOICE>
</CHOICES>
