I have an InfoPath form set up on our SharePoint server. The form has a "Save Draft" button that submits to a library for forms in progress and a "Submit Final" button for submitting to a master form library. Is it possible to have the Submit Final button delete the form in the temp library upon submission into the master library? The files will have the same name if that makes any difference. Thanks a ton!

Have you looked at using a workflow to do this?
I know that you can do this using custom code in the form, and a combination of calls to the lists webservice, but I would recommend starting with a workflow if possible.
