There is a maximum number of chained operations that can be fired by one event, I believe it is 16 (or used to be).

A single ...

Since a requirement is repeating sections, use a form library. This is my #1 criteria when differentiating which mechanism to use (list or library). InfoPath handles repeating sections so easily and figuring out how to store and render the repeating section in a list is more trouble than its worth.

Are you using InfoPath Edit form or InfoPath Form (published as linked to Content Type, in a Forms Library) as they are behaving differently: InfoPath Edit form - changing fields in either underlying list would require close and reopen the form - which would then ask to refresh. Or change the form and upon republishing would update the list. InfoPath in ...

Depending on your true requirements there are multiple ways to do it. If I don't care about doing incremental naming I simply use a timestamp to create the custom name. I create the field named FileName and set a default value using the now() function, although I translated it. So it would be something like translate(now(), "Tt:;-_ ", "") this strips out ...

Since the idea is to generate a url that you want to use as the destination of your submit action, take a look at this post which has some code to do the job that you can attach to a button you have placed on the form using infopath. In your submit options, it has you place a "dummy url" that the code will replace with your dynamically built url. I don't ...

In addition to using explorer view, as it was already answered. This is basically the question on how to copy a form library with its content which is easily searchable.

A form library generates XML documents for each entry. Whereas a custom list is simply list data with you custom entry form. Having the documents are useful of you want to interact with the forms outside of Sharepoint or if you want I do anything that isnt available in a custom list (ie. signatures).

There is however slight possibility that last request will receive some error if two saves are really, really close but in 'real life' scenario 1 second difference in names is more then enough. If you want to be 100% sure use extra data in filename eg. name of the user who i ...
