I am trying to set up a form in sharepoint. Staff will add lab orders to the form where about 5 values will be initially entered ( name, designation, project etc.) (Part A) then they will add 10 rows of data for each item ordered where each row will have a unique ID with say 7 columns each. ( say patient sample id for each sample collected). (Part B)

when they submit the form, this data is stored as 10 rows, where the first 5 column values are taken from the Part A ( and repeated for all 10 rows) and the next 7 columns are taken from from B .

result on submission the list will have additional 10 tows with 12 columns each , each row has a system generated unique id

How to set up this form on sharepoint ? there will be many samples entered each time and we do not want the first 5 column values to be entered each time.

Also, is it possible to have this set up sent by outlook email.

Create Repeating Table. For each field, the default value might be the: max(double click to insert field).
