    One submit button that emails two views

    Hello, I am totally new to infopath. I have one .xsn file that has two views. The user fills out the fields in viewA and I have a button that then switches them to viewB. On viewB I have a submit button to email the form. It works except that only viewB appears on the email even though I start out on viewA and then go to viewB. Is there a way to have the submit button link both views and submit in one email? Thanks for any assistance.

    InfoPath only emails the "current" view - so whatever view the user is on when the form is submitted. Are you using the InfoPath Filler application, or are your forms filled out in a browser? If you are filling them out in the browser, you could add a third view with all the stuff you want in the email, and then when the user clicks submit from view B, you could use submit rules to switch to the new view, send email, and switch back - this will happen quickly enough the user shouldn't see it happen... In Filler, this doesn't work, you just end up getting a blank email. So from view B, you'd need to switch to the new view and then have the user submit. Hope this makes sense, let me know if you need more details.
