Infopath Repeating Section Question

Posted on 2011-04-26

Hello and thanks in advance!

I have an infopath 2010 form im designing, in which we are using for new user provisioning. I have a repeating section in which our HR folks fill out the relevant data, and then may need to add a few more in a single session.

The catch:
I'm emailing the data in this form to our ticketing system, I'd like to get each repeating section to send it's data as a seperate email to the same location when the user clicks the submit button.

Repeat1 --> email
Repeat2 -->email
Repeat3 -->email

Any ideas?

    So you want the sections broken up but to go to the same recipient.

    This is a bit tough to accomplish.  It may be able to be done via code and a SMTP server component but this is complex.

    Why not just have them do one new user per form/email.

    If there are defaults you want to preserve between them in one session then have 2 forms or pass the data from one form and launch a second one seeded with the information.  This is a design that would be easier to accomplish.

    You would still need some code but just to pass variables between 2 forms, the current and the one you just launched, using the Application.XDocument.NewFromSolution
    to reference each field.
    there are code samples on

    Another thought would be to make views to step through each of the sections and show just the one records information at a time, but this would require the user emailing each one individually but maybe you could encorporate it with review the information or something.
