InfoPath Repeat within a Repeat

I'm trying to create an Infopath forms filler form for a work application.  I've created a group called Application and added fields to it.  I created a repeating section called WorkHistory but now within WorkHistory I need a repeating section for Job Duties.  But when I try to make Job Duties repeat the property is greyed out.  

Each person entered can have more than one job and each job can have more than one job duty.  How do I accomplish this in Infopath if I can't repeat within a repeat?

This can be accomplished by selecting the Application group in your Fields list. Right-click and choose Add and add the "WorkHistorySection" repeating group.  Then selecting the repeating group for the "WorkHistorySection", right-click and add the "JobDuties" repeating group. You can then clean up the extra groups so that your end result looks like the attached picture.

THAT'S IT!!  Thank you so much!  
I didn't even notice that "Type" can be Group or field.  I now have a lot of changes to do.
I've doubled your points and was wondering if you could tell me an easy way to change the Type from field to group or if I have to redo everything?  Also, is there an eaiser way to move the fields up and down?  If I forget a field in a group it adds it to the bottom of the group and the only way I know how to move it is up or down one field at a time.  Which is slow going.


Thanks again!

You will need to recreate the items as you cannot change them from Field to Group or vice versa. It is also true that the fields can only be moved one spot at a time within their group.
