    Re: Codeless submitting InfoPath repeating table to a SharePoint list

     Hi RaYva,

    Thanks you very much for the post and I followed your attachment and was able to add items to list successfully. I have another question, is it possible to edit those already submitted items from InfoPath form' repeating table?

     

    Thanks!!

    Re: Codeless submitting InfoPath repeating table to a SharePoint list

    If it's not too late to reply to this post I'd really like some help on assigning values to the CAML fields.

    I got this sample file to work in this instance, but in trying to replicate it to my own scenario I found that when I tried to set the values for the CAML fields I wouldn't get the same format as in the example file. The way it keeps allowing me to add the formula doesn't actually work when I submit. I see why it doesn't work, I just can't figure out how to do it.

    I have attached a screenshot of what I am experiencing.

    Can someone help me here? :-)

    Thanks!!
    George

     http://www.infopathdev.com/blogs/hilary/archive/2009/06/07/hack-manifest-xsf-to-filter-the-target-of-a-rule.aspx may help - it describes manually modifying the manifest file of the template to add XPath filters to the target for a rule.

    Re: Codeless submitting InfoPath repeating table to a SharePoint list

    Hi Hitch, that's an interesting question!  I had thought about it and then decided that I couldn't find a Use Case for it, but then why did I think of it?

    Can you explain why you would want to do this?

    Technically, there is no reason why you couldn't edit the items from the repeating table AFTER they have been submitted, although probably not in repeating table, off the top of my head the easiest way would be to do it in separate view which retrieves the item from the previously returned record ID and allows the user to edit and save it back to the list via a list data connection.

    If there is a need, I'm not promising although, maybe I'll have a go at an elegant solution! :)

    Re: Codeless submitting InfoPath repeating table to a SharePoint list

     I followed this article to get it done http://www.infopathdev.com/blogs/hilary/archive/2012/05/30/qrules-submittosharepointlist-walkthrough-for-v4-2.aspx and was able to save as well as edit after I save.

    But I don't seem to have a way delete a row so that it deletes from list, as well.

    Re: Codeless submitting InfoPath repeating table to a SharePoint list

    I believe I've done everything as directed here (even RaYvA's template solution), but new records do not seem to be adding. I click the button with my GUID entered, and it appears to run fine, but when I go to the list nothing new was added. Does anyone know if perhaps there is something disabled on the SharePoint administrator side of things preventing me from doing this?

    Amazing solution, stumbled upon this luckily before giving up and going to the object model! One of the most useful InfoPath solutions around in my opinion.

    Re: Codeless submitting InfoPath repeating table to a SharePoint list

    Hi nerdifiedgeek, this should work ootb. Make sure that the GUID is enclodes in braces {....} and also make sure that the web address for the data connection is pointing to your server.

    If al else fails, delete everything you've attempted to do and start again following the instructions carefully.  Everything in the form is quiet self contained.

    Hope you get it to work.

    Hi nine1987, follow Hillary's instructions posted above:

    Save the linked file locally (right click link, select save as). Navigate to the locally saved file. Right click the file and select Design - then you can open the form in design mode.

    Re: Codeless submitting InfoPath repeating table to a SharePoint list

    I have been following this example of submitting a Repeating Table to a sharepoint list. What I would like to do next is to have a normal table (non-repeating) submitted along with a repeating table. For example, I have a form where an employee is added. That employee might have work experience (more than one). I can add person X( fname, lname, phone, etc) using standard field. I would like to have underneath the work experience as a repeating table (date worked, company, etc). When I hit submit, I would like the persons fname, lname, phone etc to be inserted each time a new work experience is added. Person X Date 1 Company Z Date 2 Company W When I hit submit the following happens: Person X Date 1 Company Z Person X Date 2 Company W Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
