Populating a Sharepoint list with Infopath repeating table data

richmonk used Ask the Experts™

I've created an Infopath 2007 web compatible form that populates a Sharepoint 2007 list.  The form contains data in repeating table.  I'd like to populate the list with some of that data so that I can use it for reporting purposes, but I'm not sure which way to go about it.  

I've seen lots of solutions that populate a form with repeating table data, but I've not seen anything for the other way around and I'm not smart enough to figure it out.

Can this even be done? If so, can someone please point me in the right direction?

SharePoint does not support repeating elements within a list.  it is a flat data structure.

Also list forms only can insert one record at a time.

Those are the limitations.


Dang!  Thanks for confirming my fears.
