repeating sections (InfoPath 2003 and SP 2003) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Rookie here - still using Infopath 2003 and SharePoint 2003.  I have a simple form, trying to use a repeating section to capture vendor names associated with a process.  Insert item works fine but when submitted to my SharePoint form library I'm only seeing the first vendor selected and not subsequent vendors added through the "insert item" option.  I'm sure this is something amazingly simple I'm missing but I haven't been able to find an answer despite searching the web for several days.

    Also, if anyone has ideas for setting a unique file name using some type of record counter that would also be useful.  Thanks!

  • Hi Nick, actually it's not so simple.  OOTB it does not allow you submit all rows (only 1) from a repeating table to SharePoint.  You have to do it programmatically.

    I'm not sure how to do it with 2003.  I do have a question though - are you trying to get each row of the repeating table into their own row in your library?  Or do you want all of the vendors inputed into one sharepoint column in the same row in the form library?

    You seem to have missed that he is using InfoPath 2003 and SP 2003. Your link is for InfoPath 2007

    (I have only just added that info to the Title but it was already in the text)

  • Thank you for your reply, Melli.  Ideally I'd like each row to have a row in the library.
