  • Hi,

    For me, this is not possible to save content of a form to two different lists without using custom code... InfoPath not know the fields that would be save to one list and the fields that would be save to another...

    Your only solution will be to send the form to a custom Web Service (for example a WCF Service that take an xmldocument in parameter) that will do what you want.

    But if you work like this, that means that you could not modify the form after submit him.

    Why don't you save the whole form into one form library and use metadata to show the content you want?
