Inside an InfoPath form how to:
1) Have repeating sections on click of a button
2) Have user security on InfoPath form for whichever section the user can see/use

Would appreciate your response.

    1.) If you insert a repeating section there is a built in button to add another section. If you want to display a repeating control based on a button control click. Hide the repeating section as default.
    2.) Under Tools there is a "User Roles" option. You can setup people to be a part of a user role, for exsample Admin and User.
    Then, on the controls that you want to hide based on a user. In the Conditional Formatting set the control to hide when a User's Role is equal to Admin or User.
