    Repeating Table Display & Calculation

    Hi,

    I have an IP 2010 form with 2 sections, as per below:

    Section 1 - Captures data from a Sharepoint Calendar into a drop-down field, once the user makes a selction in the drop-down field it then has seperate text fields below which display different information of that selection.

    Section 2 - Captures data from a Sharepoint Forms library, as above once the user makes a selction in the drop-down field it then has seperate text fields below which display different information of that selection.

    Basically, I want to have a 'Select' button on each of the two sections above, but below them I want to have a table which has 'Qty, Description & Cost' so that when the user makes a selection from either of the top sections and selects 'Select' that selection then gets auto-populated into the table, the data from both sections also has a cost, that is why I require the table so I can add a calculation field at the bottom of the table to calculate the total cost of the user's selections.

     This might be a bit tricky as I haven't come across a template which shows something similar, but if it could be possible to produce without coding that'd be easier, cheers.

    Hi Joey,

    I think you should be able to accomplish that with our qRules tool: http://www.qdabra.com/en/products/qRules.aspx

    We have some commands for working with tables such as "CopyTable" which you should be able to use to do what you describe.

    qRules is code BUT you don't need to know code to use it.  Basically you inject the qRules DLL into your form and then you use the rules to use the qRules command.  So using the familiar user interface in InfoPath you can leverage the power of code.

    There is a trial version if you are interested.

    Ted
