    Display (read only) SharePoint list default fields

    In a SharePoint list some fields (i.e. Created by) are automatically generated. I want to display (read only) this field in an Infopath form.

    I created a repeating section, then inside it put a text box. The text box is bound to the group: Created by > DisplayName field. (FWIW, this is the only combination I could put together that didn't error and allowed me to upload it).

    Even so, I can see that the Created by field is populated when looking at columns in the list view, but when I open the form it is blank.

    Am I doing something wrong? Any suggestions on how I can show these fields?

    OMG! I just figured it out - by myself! (LOL)

    Instead of a text box I used a Calculated Field. Not only did it work great, it removed the need for using a repeating section!

    Problem solved!

    Great job! I always seem to figure stuff out right after I type it up asking for help. :)
