SharePoint List +InfoPath Repeating Table + XML as 2nd Data Source

    Question

  • Hi Team,

    SharePoint list Form(Its not a library) --> InfoPath UI ---> Form has 2 sections (Repeating Table Controls+Non Repeating Controls).

    Repeating Table contains 2 single line of texts 

    Non Repeating section contains  an Attachment field ,a People Picker field, a Multiline of Text field which I am trying to do with xml file. It was very difficult with the stupid Microsoft InfoPath forms.

    I am totally out of luck.

  • The Information you provided is a basic one.But I am looking for some advanced solution.

    I am looking for an InfoPath form which contains both Repeating and Non Repeating sections in a SharePoint list.

    The columns for non repeating should be Attachments , People Picker, DropDown etc (Not a single line of text)

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    Do you want to bind the XML data to the non-repeating fields?

    If yes, I think there is no big difference if you are also adding repeating sections in the form.

  • Hi,

    In my opinion, People Picker field needs to get users from an identity directory. If you want to make users can type any value, then you just use Single line of text type field is enough.

    If you want to make the People field work as in SharePoint site, please check the link below:
