    Form Load

    I have an infopath form with 4 different views, currently I have the form load based on a choice field, which works well about 75% of the time. Is there a way to have the form load take you to the current view when edit is pushed?

    Hi - I don't quite understand the question. Is this a list form? So when you say "edit is pushed" you mean the user is opening the list from from the list to edit it? I would think the form load rules would still kick in - when you say the current rules work "75% of the time", when do they not work? :)

    Hi Hilary, Sorry, that wasn't very clear. It is a SharePoint list form, and yes, when someone clicks edit, I have one of the 4 views open up dependent on status. The problem is that I have 7 different statuses, and not all of them translate well into what view to open (75% works well). Quite often someone is viewing an item and they try to edit, and it changes the view based on the status, but they didn't want that view. My question really should have been, Is there any way to have the edit form (view1) open from the view currently selected (view1)? Thanks

    Thanks for the additional explanation. Not that I know of.... it sounds like what you want is for the form load rules to not always run, and I don't think there is a way to do that from View. To the best of my understanding, list forms don't run any logic at all in view mode, so we can't set a form logic field or anything and leverage that.

    thanks, that's what I was afraid of.
