    Yes, I have done that! I have it working for the Update, New and Delete methodologies - it's quite wonderful.

    Yes, please! I am trying to use your methodology to renumber steps - so if you have a Batch updatelistitem form that manages to loop through past the 16 mark, that would be amazing!!!
     

    Hi again bwhite05, I don't have an example on hand regarding updating the list items after they have been submitted as I'm not at work atm, it is completely possible, and the it is possible to target it with whatever rules you want, it does really depend on what you want to achieve/your workflow although it can get quiet complex, I'm of the opinion that this is probably worth another post rather than to continue this one....

    At this point it seems almost like this subject should become a multi part webinar! (and I didn't even think of the idea, I was just the first guy that worked out what the original guy was doing LOL)

     Thank you very much. I think the renaming the column was my mistake. Thanks for the help

    Re: Codeless submitting InfoPath repeating table to a SharePoint list

    Hello Hilary Can you please elaborate on the Steps mentioned here.I have many doubts in this approach. 1) What is the datatype of line and Trigger field? 2) What is totalline field? 3) How to get the formula for increment rule? i.e. count(preceding-sibling::group2) + 1. Where can we get that preceding and sibling terms. 4) what is the value for line and trigger

    Re: Codeless submitting InfoPath repeating table to a SharePoint list

    Hi Hilary - I was able to create an infopath form with the CAML and Sharepoint Receive and Webservice UpdateList submit data connections. It works great!!  What I would like to do now is have the ability for the user to select drop downs and calendar picklist when filling out the form. I think this either has to be done in the CAML or perhaps another data connections but not sure and my eyes are going buggy looking at blogs and posts etc.....  Thanks for any ideas you may have.

    Hi!  This solution works awesome for me as long as I don't have any People and Group picker fields.  As soon as I add a person to the mix, the whole thing fails.  I have tried submitting the User ID and Display name, and even tried to put it in another field as text but no luck...the entire process fails.  Have you had luck getting people and group picker fields to populate a SharePoint List Item with this method?  If so, what am I missing?  (I am working with SharePoint 2010)

    Hi, I've managed to use this solution to have a really nice form and all is working well. Now the easy part, or should be... How do I publish this to my list so that users will launch the form direct from SharePoint? I'm lost, help! Thanks!

    Re: Codeless submitting InfoPath repeating table to a SharePoint list

    As to people / group pickers - you need to submit the account ID prefaced with -1#; (see this post for info: http://www.infopathdev.com/blogs/hilary/archive/2013/01/17/qrules-submittosharepointlist-and-a-person-or-group-column-type.aspx - it mentions qRules but qRules uses CAML too).

    As to publishing your form - is this a list form or a "normal" InfoPath form?

    Re: Codeless submitting InfoPath repeating table to a SharePoint list

    I've tried to publish it to the standard template.xsn location of my test list. However I get an error when trying to launch from SharePoint: The specified form template could not be found, or is not compatible with rendering in the browser. It might need to be republished as a browser-enabled form.

    I used the version here as a base so not entirely sure.

    Re: Codeless submitting InfoPath repeating table to a SharePoint list

    Probably just a normal InfoPath form then - you can publish it to a SharePoint form library for users to fill out. Under the form options, you can change the compatibility to a browser form (or you can use File > Save As and save as browser form)

    I'm going to sound really out my depth here but how do I publish it to a form library and have users launch it in an easy manner? Ok I've turned on some additional features on the site collection and now I can get past needing to provide an admin to approve the form. I've selected creating a new forms library and have published it there. Only it's not showing up in the library. I can see it in SPD but not on the SharePoint. What's my next steps? Oh and thanks for helping me with this

    When you go to the library and click New Document your form should open. If it is a browser form, you could then copy the URL from the address bar and provide that link to your users someplace convenient.

    Re: Codeless submitting InfoPath repeating table to a SharePoint list

    I've published it as 'Web Browser Form' from the compatibility tab. However it seems like it's not web based because it keeps trying to launch infopath. I'm getting the following attached error when launching. Do I somehow need to get it signed with a certificate?
