Hello Experts,

I have an InfoPath 2003 form that is returning data from MS Access 2003 in a repeating tables.  What I would like to do is add a radio button to the repeating table so that only one row can be selected at any given time.  Then I would like to display a value from that row to a text box.   Any ideas?

    Add a field outside of the repeating section.

    put a button inside the repeating row or section and set the external field with the row ID or whatever is unique in it.

    Then add conditional formatting that highlights the row when ID equals external field.

    I often have 2 repeating elements boung to the same data connection.  One displays all but is read only and the other shows the selected record in greater detail.


    You can use another button in the same way to set a text field, which is just a rule action.

    I eventually figured this out; now Clay's comments make sense to me but I would have done it sooner with a simple example.
