How to submit data from repeatable table in infopath form to a sharepoint list?
I am trying to solve this problem of pulling data into a repeating table, then having the user modify them and submit all the changes. A repeating table by default does not have the ability to submit data, so I guess it will require some tricks, either CAML or double eval to create a concatenated string which contains all the new data for a given column we are updating.
but this looks like a form to create new entries? Or what am I supposed to do to enter the data into a repeating table then submit changes to the list with no changes if user did not change a field?
also I checked out an answer to a previous question which was still in the "not sufficiently answered" status. https://sharepoint.stackexchange.com/a/37259/10213 I would like to use this trick, but after collecting the information, how are you parsing the character delineated concatenated string and how are you sending it to the correct list? Any implementation example would be nice. Would it work for a repeating table which can have any number of rows? (variable in length, depending on how many entries exist, we'll actually have to concatenate fields a different number of times)
