Infopath: problem with structured layouts within a repeating section or table



I've run into a bit of a problem when trying to structure information in a repeating section or table.

What I need to be able to do is use a repeating section or repeating table to receive data from a secondary data source and then structure this data and have the ability to have the field names at the top of each row in the table.

Both options seem floored:

repeating table: this method seems ok at first but it doesn’t seem possible to have the field names at the top of each row, which is a requirement. 

repeating section: this does include the field names for each row but for some reason will not allow me to structure the fields in a nested table, so its messy.

Infopath and Section 508 Accessibility


Hey, guys! I'm building a web site for a Section 508 workgroup, and I need the site to be 100% accessible (including the administration module I'm making for the team. We're using SharePoint MOSS 2007 and I recommended using infopath to enter data into the site's database (and also to populate downloadable Microsoft Word documents). The customer claimed that InfoPath is not Section 508 compliant, which seemed odd to me because the forms can be modified to anything you want them to be (including 508 compliant).

I even found this guide to making InfoPath accessible:


I'm curious if there are any caveats to making accessible forms in Infopath, or if the information I've gathered is incorrect.

Infopath Template Deployment Locking Existing Records




We are currently using SharePoint Server 2007 and have multiple InfoPath lists configured and one workflow tasks list. We have workflows configured for these InfoPath lists using Visual Studio to design these workflows and use InfoPath forms as the main document. After using the workflow items for a while we have changed and upgraded the workflow for the last year. The issue came when we tried to upgrade to the third version we designed.




We have two InfoPath lists in SharePoint that have identical form templates. In both lists there are around 3000-3100 InfoPath forms give or take. I modified the template to accommodate some new fields and promoted additional fields but did not go over the

SSAS 2008 attritube hierarchy doesn't group records and repeat rows

We are having problems with the dimension attributes in lower level hierarchies not grouping under 1 single level. Here is the hierarchy: VP    College      Department         Departmental Course            Course Level               Course Number The top 3 levels are grouping correctly without duplicate rows and they don't have compoud keys. The lowest 3 levels are not grouped correctly and they have compounds keys because the attributes are not unique by themself. The result of the hierarchy looks like this: VP Academic Affairs    Business School of Management        International Business School            Mgm101                 Lower                       Course Number 123            Mgm101                Upper

Infopath 2010 - Section hidden

I have a section in my Infopath form that only a few people are supposed to see. I have used conditonal formatting rules to "hide" it. I am restricting based on user name that I am getting from GETUSERPROFILE which is working just fine.

InfoPath 2010, Multiple Repeating Sections have same name, Diff data connections using same SQL Serv

I've created an InfoPath 2010 form that has three Repeating sections and each one uses a different data connection but all three connections use the same table in SQL Server... "Accounts".  Now you might ask why I would do this? Well I need different sets of data in each section and it all resides in the same table in the repository. Also, sometimes one section will not have information and I do not want a bunch of blank fields displaying in the repeating section. So I split the data into separate sections. Now here is the challenge for you guru's out there. :) I want to use one column in the 3rd repeating section  to refer back to another column in the first repeating section.(for referential integrity) Unfortunately since they both use the same table in the database they possess the same name under advanced view:  myFields/dataFields "d_:Accounts". In fact all three of my repeating sections have the same name based upon the database table used in the data connection. In the SQL statement I attempted to rename each of the connections via the statement. I have not tried to give the table an alias in the statement yet. Will try that one next. 1. Is there a simple way to rename the repeating Section from "d_:Accounts" to something else so that  they are each unique? (Without using backend code as I've only used InfoPath/SP/S
