Conditional Form Fields in Infopath 2007

I am working on a form that has several different variations depending on the type of transaction it is which is selected by a drop-down list. Is it possible to have fields appear underneath the drop-down list if a certain selection is made? What feature/function is this called?

yes, that is possible.

You can create several sections an place the fields into these. Then use rules to hide each section depending on the value of the dropdown field.

cheers, teylyn

You also can create several views within the form and then use a dropdown and button or multiple buttons to select and switch to a different view.

But as teylyn says, creating sections and then use formatting rules to hide if the value does not equal the one that relates to it.
Then put all of your controls or text within that section.
