Infopath 2007 Forms Parent-Child relationship

Hello,

I want to design two form templates. Parent template has a repeating table with a button.
When user clicks the button Child template form opens up wher user can fill-in the data. When he saves/closes the child form some of the data from child form will be returned to a Parent Form. Is it possible to achieve something like this?

This can be done but would discourage it.
Are you familiar with views?  Typically you would have some secondary data connections and let the user navigate to the record they want. Then the button queries the selected record and switches to the detail view. Then on submit it switches back to the browse view.

otherwise the trick with multiple forms is passing variables, the record ID, to the second form and will require code.

is this a database form?

No. I have bound a form to XML data. It is not a browser enabled.

Actually a child form is a Quote for each part and Parent form represents an Assembly. So What I want to do is from parent from User can add parts and then for each part he can create the Quote. When child Quote is saved/submitted it passes summary back to parent form and display on the table. Is that possible with Views? If not I am ready to code to achieve this

Thank You!
