    how can i access data from another form

    Hi, Here is the scenario i have. I have created a form that represents the life cycle of a master project. This is a browser enabled form that sites in sharepoint (MOSS). I know need to create a new form that represents sub projects within the master project. Some of the views within this sub project form reference data from the master project form. These form have / are being developed in visual studio 2008 as form templates that are then published to the forms server. I am wondering what people would recommend as the best way to get data from the master project form. I could promote the fields i wanbt and then read the form library information but i really want a more dynamic solution so i dont have to had a lot of promoted fields. Ideally is there a way i can get the XML of the form (assume i know the address of the XML file) via c#. Hopefully formservices has something to let me do this. Thanks in advance Paul

    you can read xml file and populate the values from master form to child forms. but this will require a coding. you will need to create a small utility that will basically go and read the xml of the master form and create a child form based on that
