    By adding the field to your form template directly via the Data Source pane and not dragging-and-dropping it onto a View of your form template. It will then exist in the form, but will not be visible to the user.

  • sorry for pushing this thread up but can anyone explain more detailedly on how to add a hidden field in infopath 2007?
    I tried right clicking on a field and selecting corresponding controls but not work...
    much appreciation if any one can help.
    I think hidden fields are possible for browser forms, arent they?

  • Hey Desp.

     

    You have probably moved on to other things by now, but to explain what was said above...

     

    ALL FIELDS in the "Data source" list are hidden by default.  They are the equivalenet of database fields.  Dragging a "data" field onto the Form creates a link between the "data" and the "user interface".

     

    So if you go View > Data Source... to show the Data Source pane, then click "Add a field or group..", enter the name and data type, and hey presto, there is your hidden field.

     

    Hope this helps!

     

    Cheers,

    Ben
