I have two sections in infoPath form. I hide the required field of the first section, but I'm not able to submit the form.


You may want to set the field as not required, but instead validate on form submit to see if the conditions are met and if not, make sure the field is not empty.

See this post for more details on how to proceed: How to create a validation rule

  • Are you hidding only in certain conditions? – Marc-André Sep 8 '17 at 15:41
  • no, If user select "New" it should open the required field . If they select "Current", no required field – Sai Sep 8 '17 at 15:44
  • But, by any means , they are able to submit both way – Sai Sep 8 '17 at 15:44
  • @Sai Can you edit your question and add an image of the form when it's a new and when it's a current user? – Marc-André Sep 8 '17 at 15:51
