InfoPath Main Datasource RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi
    I'm creating a new InfoPath 2010 Form and attempting to replicate something a previous developer created.

    The form has several datasources which are visible under the Data > Data Connections.

    I've noticed under Main 'queryFields' and 'dataFields' are visible amongst the controls. How is this possible ? and why is this not a secondary data source?

    Thanks

  • Hi Orange- not sure why you question this. It's straight out of the box functionality. Am I missing something?

  • Hi

    I've realised since the post that its possible to add 'queryFields' and 'dataFields' through the wizard only cannot be added if I add a secondary data source first. Is this true?

    Thanks

  • Hi orange juice jones,

    In InfoPath, if you see the locked field icon or the locked group icon in the Data source task pane, you cannot modify the field or group no matter it is main data source or a secondary data source.

    For more detailed information, you could refer to the article below.

    Add, move, or delete a field or group.
