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:

InfoPath Repeating Table submit to SharePoint List


I have an infopath form that I've created for expensed that has 2 repating tables that I've added custom code with CAML XML receive data connections and UpdateListItems Submit connections to allow for the data to be submitted to 2 custom lists but the data isn't appearing and I'm not getting any errors. The code is linked to the submit button and the form was succesfully published and deployed to my MOSS 2007 server and the form submits all of the non-repeating tabke data to the main data connection (a sharepoint library) but the other data doesn't get entered into the custom tables.

Is there some way to trace the InfoPath functionality to ensure that the code is being executed, and if so, to diagnose any issues?

I used the method provided here in order to Submit repeating tables to s SharePoint list:


The reason I need the data is to generate reports using the rows in the repeating forms, maybe there's a better way to traverse the list without having to use extra tables but I don't know of one. If there is I would appreciate any help in being pointed in the right direction.

Button in a form that does not submit


I've been trying to figure this out all afternoon but my google-fu seems to be failing me. I'm setting up a page with a fairly large form, which has one field that is going to require some kind of popup page that will allow the user to perform a lookup. At the moment I'm only prototyping the page so I'm actually only attempting to a the button up to fire an alert when the button is clicked instead of generating a lookup screen. However it seems that no matter what I do the button causes the form to submit.

I remember one of the very first ASP .NET beginner videos I ever watched went through configuring a button to perform actions without submitting, but I can't seem to figure out which one it was.

OK button click on Windows dialogue form not triggering click event

I have created an Add-In for Outlook 2003 in Visual Studio 2005. When a new message is sent and a toggle button is selected, a form that I have created will be displayed as a dialogue box, where further information can be entered. Once this information has been entered you can click the OK button and the message is sent. If you were to click the OK button with invalid data in the form, there would be a message box with an error message. This all works perfectly on my development machine but when I have packaged the Add-In and installed it on other machines it does not work. Clicking on the OK button does nothing, there is not even an error message. All the prerequsits are successfully installed and this is the only part of the Add-In that does not work. All help greatly appreciated. Thanks Nick
