    Is it possible to duplicate data in different views?

    I have created a form with several different views.  A user will enter data in the user view, which contains several text boxes and drop downs.  Later, an engineer will view the form in the engineer view (views are restricted based on sharepoint lists).  I would like some of the user entered data to be displayed in the engineer view.  The engineer then disseminates the work into additional team views.  I was hoping I could simply copy the sections containing the data I want displayed, but the copied fields say that data cannot be displayed correctly. 

     Is there an easy (or any) way to accomplish this?

    Thanks for any help!

     Well, usually that just means that there is something wrong w/ the structure - like the fields belong inside a repeating group and you've put them outside of it. :) Try copying the entire view from one to the other, then remove the fields you don't need, see if that helps. Feel free to attach your form under the Options tab in a reply if you want a hand.

    Regardless, thank you for taking the time to answer the smaller, less trivial questions (like mine).  I don't post often but am a lurker, particularly when I have issues.  Your expert advice and solutions are always appreciated.  :)  Have a great afternoon!
