    The submit button - going to another page

    Infopath 2010. IE 8

    This should be an easy one (I know, famous last words).  But...  I have my infopath form submitting properly, it even goes to the "Thank you for submitting" view.  However, when you try to close the window, it asks the user again if they want to submit the form..

    Here are the three rules on my submit button, in order:

    Action: Set a field's value
    Field: strFilename
    Value: concat(userName(), now())

    Action: Submit data
    Data Connection: Sharepoint Library Submit

    Action: Switch views
    View: Successful


    All the user needs to do after switching view is close the window, but as I said, it's asking if they want to submit it again.

    Someone know my glitch?

    Thanks much!

    Consider creating another InfoPath button that has a rule that simply closes the form.  This should bypass that prompt asking you to save again.  To prevent the user from using the ribbon, go to File -> Fom Options and in the Browser features category unselect Close.  This will remove that command from the ribbon in the browser.  Hope this helps!

    Thanks!  I tried that and still had the problem.  I finally linked it to InfoPath. There were a few things going on trying to use the infopath form as opposed to a web page. 

    I actually rebuilt the whole thing from scratch starting with the form being web accessible. It only took about a couple hours to rebuild and it works like a charm.

    Thanks for your input!  :)  Appreciate it!
