dynamically create a checkbox inside the infopath form?


I have a shared database that drives Windows Mobile Apps, Windows WPF Clients and now rich client InfoPath form (this wont be used an InfoPath web, only the rich office client)...

This database contains a list of daily changing of Audit Questions depending on the week and season etc.

I want to make a call to the database from InfoPath, pull back a list of LabelName and Controltype_id  1=checkbox 2 = textbox

In the Onload Event of the InfoPath form I want to dynamically create Textbox/Checkboxs with the label names from the database, with an question_id per answer.  Then the user will disconnect their internet and drive to the place without service (large metal multiroom coolstores without 3G service)  and fill in the checklist, the the user presses a button, and it evaluates all the answers and makes the background colour grey or black, and change the font colour to white. then the user presses the submit it back to the server when they are back in 3G service again.  

How can this be acheived? can someone send me some example code that works, thanks.

Please dont reply with "this is not possible", make the impossible possible.
1,000s of people told me I couldn't get barcodes into InfoPath even with the cursor on any form field. But I did it.

Infopath Browser Enabled Form - Filters dont work inside repeating table



I have been trying to create a Browser Enabled form to be used as a Sales Order form, the form will work in the following way.

It will pull in info from a sharepoint list with Customer Codes, it will pull in info from another sharepoint list with customer contact information which will be filtered based on which customer is selected.

There will then be a repeating table to place the order items.  The repeating table has 8 columns, 6 of which are lookups against 1 sharepoint list (all the columns are in the same list).

The sharepoint lsit data looks something similar to this:

Item Type                 Item Provider                    Product Relation              Product Description                Delivery Team              Cost
Service                     Us                &

Best solution for reporting OLTP/OLAP?



I am not sure if this is the correct place for this question. We have a reporting requirement. The OLTP database is SQL Server 2008R2. Number of reports required is 6 and not sure about the number of users to provide access. On an average 20k records are added per day.  Now as the number of reports is just 6, is it worth to create a multi dimensional database (OLAP)? Are there any OLTP reporting tools ? Any help would be appreciated.
