DataSource Filtered Query in Repeating Section. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey everybody,

    I'm using a second datasource to connect to a webservice that retrieves orders. the webservice has a parameter to return a filtered set of orders. So i use the filtered Query to retrieve data from the webservice. I have created a textbox where the user can enter an number to use in the query filter. I created a button to execute the query. Then there is a dropdown list which gets the choices from the datasource. When a selection is made, other textboxes are filled with values from the datasource depending on the selction made. So far so good.

    Now i want to do this in a repeating section in the infopath form that displays multiple orders. But now i have to filter again for the second order. This queries the datasource again. So the data for the first order will be lost. Has anyone a suggestion how to handle this?

  • Hey anyone?

    I've noticed a similar problem when saving the infopath form and reopen the form. If the data from the is not loaded yet. Fields refering to the data source are empty.

    What i need is to take a snapshot of the selected data from the second datasource and store it in the main datasource, but it must be persistent.

    Can anybody help me out here?
