Pass repeating table data between InfoPath browser forms in SharePoint
Watch a demonstration of copying data between repeating tables on two different InfoPath forms that are embedded in a page in SharePoint 2010.
This InfoPath 2010 with SharePoint 2010 video is a demonstration of how you can pass rows of a repeating table from one InfoPath browser form to another in SharePoint. The steps to create such a solution have been laid out in the bonus article for InfoPath 2010 Cookbook 3 named Pass repeating table data between InfoPath browser forms that can be found in the InfoPath 2010 Cookbook 3 Club.
InfoPath 2010 with SharePoint 2010 video transcript
Here I'm in SharePoint 2010, where I've already published two InfoPath form templates to these two SharePoint form libraries.
The first InfoPath form looks like this. It has a repeating table control on it that contains the names and colors of a couple of Office applications.
The second InfoPath form has just an empty repeating table control on it, so I'll be using the first InfoPath form to pass a row of a repeating table to this second InfoPath form and add the row here to this repeating table control.
I've also already embedded the two InfoPath forms in a web part page, so if I go ahead now and select one of these records... let's say I'll add the Access record. When I click Copy, you'll see that Access will appear here in the repeating table in the second InfoPath form.
I can repeat the process for another record... let's say I'll copy the Word record. Then you'll see the Word record appear there in the second InfoPath form.
I can also add a record here. Let me add InfoPath, and then click Copy. And then you'll see InfoPath appear here in the second InfoPath form.
