No, SharePoint is a flat data structure and does not support repeating elements with a row.

So you have to create a column for the max number of items to get them out flat or find some way of deliminating them inside one large field.  Either way not a real good solution.
To support repeating secondary elements you need a relational database like SQL or not promote and open the form to see the data, or push the repeating elements into a seperate list, like you referenced with coding.

As i am new in the info path form so i don't have the idea about to do using the sql server database, or also we do using the Ms Access database. If we can you please let me know how we can do using the MS access database in detail. It is will great help to me.

If you have the freedom to buy add ons, you could try the Repeating Rows Field type from Kwizcom - we are using this to replace our InfoPath forms and submit data directly to a SharePoint list.

www.infopathdev.com has some information.

www.qdabra.com has a tool / solution as well.

Access is not probably the best solution in your scenario. Not geared for a Enterprise shared solution or really compatible with SharePoint.
