how to auto-fill and populate a repeating table from other sources?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 14, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I have a repeating table and users will enter values to a column. With the column, I would like to auto-generate a list of checkboxes for user to check in another place on the form (any control?)? Seems in Infopath, you can not loop a list; and you can not insert item with actions to a repeating table?

My repeating table did not open/load correctly

In my browser-enabled form I am using a webservice to get data from one look up table in my database. The table consists of two columns (ProdId and ProdDescription). In order to allow the user to select more than one products, I bind  this data to a repeating table where the productId column converted from a check box to a checkbox instead. So every row of this repeating table have a checkbox in the first column so the user can make selection and a textbox in the second column to list the Product Description. When the user open/load the existing form where multiple selection was made to the repeating table none of the checkboxs were checked. I have no idea how to go about to fix this issue and i can use some help. So far i have not use any codes for my form so i would like to stay codeless and using rules instead. Thank you in advance.

Repeating table not showing content following a rule refresh

Background info: I have a form where I populate employee info from the GetUserProfileByName ws. From there I populate its manager info from another web service call (seperate data connections).  Once the manager is populated, through rules, I'm populating the first approver. All this is done at form load through rules. The approvers node is defined as follows and is displayed on the form as a repeating table:  participants (group)    approver (repeating group)       ApproverName       ApproverLogin       ApproverEmail Problem: The repeating table is not showing any content even though I'm using an alert to show that I do in fact have one row in there. As a side note, I know the table is working because if the user elects to delegate approval to another user (through the people picker), the table shows these approvers correctly.  Anyone as any clue what I'm doing wrong? Thanks!
