Setting values across Sharepoint lists

Posted on 2012-08-14

I am using Infopath with Sharepoint. I know how to populate my dropdowns on my infopath form with values from a different list than the form is linked to.

Can I also change values on another list based on what was added to the form?

I want the form to set the values for it's own list, which it will do automatically, and then, based on the value in a particular field from that form, I want to be able to set a value on another cell, in a completely different list. Is it possible or will I have to break out Visual Studio and C#? Seems to me that if Infopath can retrieve data from other lists, it should be able to set data on other lists as well.

    Actually, this can be accomplished with workflows in Sharepoint Designer without having to write code
