May I know if a field (probably text field) in InfoPath 2007 form that can auto-generate the following format: YYYYMMDD-HHMMSS-{LIST_NAME}

where YYYYMMDD is the year, month, day HHMMSS is the hour, minute, second {AUTHOR-NAME} is the name of the person who is filling up the form.


I have tested this formula inside my InfoPath 2007 form. Please try it and let me know if that is what you wanted.


The first 3 substring basically give you the YYYYMMDD, the next 3 substrings give you the HHMMSS while the last one - userName will give you the creator of the form.

Please also disable the field from modification and set the field as empty in the first place.
