Re: Calculate Fields - Ignore Hidden
Hi - when you create your average and other calcs, you need to filter the data selection in the same way as your table is filtered so the hidden rows are excluded. Does that make sense?
Re: Auto Populate Infopath form based on selection
Okay, you should be able to do this just by adding a filter to the field when you set the value - so, on the dropdown, the rule is to set the text box on your form with the Cont_ID from the secondary data source where the Title matches the dropdown. If you want to attach your form under the Options tab, I can give you a had with the rule. :)
Re: Copy Sharepoint list values to infopath repeating sections fields
Okay - first, is this in Office 365? Or an on premises server? Next, have you set the controls that execute your commands to always postback? That is under the control's properties, in the browser tab.
Re: Conditions in rules limited to 5?
Just wanted to link to the thread where we discussed this: http://www.infopathdev.com/forums/t/31309.aspx
Re: Hide/Unhide Section with a Rule
I know, my brain doesn't work that direction either - the whole "what is the condition to hide" thing always leaves me writing things out (like I did in the post above) so it makes sense to me. Start mixing up not with hide and with and/or and I short circuit.
