FYI, all: The dictionary form (with kanji) is にける. It looks like the dictionary form can be used similarly.

Added the dictionary form. Left out the kanji because the reference book I first saw it in left out the kanji, making me think it's normally written without.

You know (and this barely tangential), that's something that really frustrates me. Sometimes I wish they'd just put it all in kanji and provide furigana for the ones they don't think you need furigana for yet. Half the time I understand the kanji better than the sound alone...

There's a difference in usage between おける and おいて; おける precedes a noun (or modified noun) whereas おいて precedes just about everything else.

Added a marker for the おける one so it's differentiated a bit.

Shouldn't the title of this grammar point be changed into "において/における" ?
