You will need to promote those columns by re-publishing the form. As you step through the wizard for publishing your infopath form a dialog appears where you can choose which columns you want to appear as promoted columns on the SharePoint list.

One idea can be to store the data in a List (maybe temporarily) and on InfoPath form make a connection to this List, get data from there.. If you have multiple entries in List and need to identify which one you should pick, you can still use QueryString approach to send the List Item Id..
You can use Query String parameters to send to InfoPath form and if you want no code solution, you can use Query String (URL) Filter Web Part.. Following blog shows how:
How to Pass Querystring data into an InfoPath Form
If you want to access them in code, you can access like:
// URL: http://www.foo.com/bar.xsn?xyz=1
public void FormEvents_Loading(object ...
Yes, I faced the same issue, actually my InfoPath form was targeted to publish into Document Library instead if Form Library.
In your case i guess you are also doing the same mistake. You may have your published target wrongly specified.
I an not sure how you are submitting the form. I am also doing the same thing but it sends the mail in background without opening any client email application.
What i have done is :
Click "Submit option" in "Data" menu
In "Send form to a single desitnation" selected "Email"
Created an Email data connection
And used this connection as default connection.
You can configure your Submit button to submit data based on a specific rule to submit the form to another data connection (In your case, it's the second list)
First, you need to add the second list as a Secondary Data Connection.
Second, In Data Tab > Click on Submit Option > Check Perform Custom Action using Rule
In the Form Submit Rule > Click on ...
Your InfoPath Form Data connection is running on load and getting a drop down data field from a secondary data connection. Open the form in design and make sure where are you pulling the data from. You might want to add filters in your query so you should pull the specific data not all the items in a list.
Alternate Solution: Increase List Item threshold ...
I think I figured it out. When opening up the button properties I had selected "Submit" instead of "Rules and Custom Code" which solved the problem. I thought I had done that yesterday but for some reason it didn't seem to work right. I was able to put in the rules today and they saved.
In infopath you will use the filter in the control for this. When you go to the Drop-Down list properties When you choose the option for "Get choices from an external data source" you can pick your doc lib. (I suspect that you have already got this part done by the wording of your question.
The next step is to add a filter to the line where the "Entries" ...

What you describe cannot be easily done out of the box in a list form.
A list form can typically only manipulate the data for its own list, not write several rows of data to another list.
If you want to use InfoPath, you'd need to start out with a browser form as the container, load the parent list data, load the child list items. To write back to the ...
InfoPath offers this dialog to configure a drop-down:
Make sure that the "Display Name" is set to the Title and the "Value" to the ID. Internally, only the ID is stored in the SharePoint list. The SharePoint view will resolve the title.
If you use a SharePoint Lookup column and edit the form with InfoPath, the settings are correct by default.
A web-based form can only be closed with a rule
You can only close an InfoPath form (web-based) if you create a rule with an action that says:
Close the form
In addition, such a rule can only be set on a button control, which
means that you will not be able to close an InfoPath form when a user
changes the value of a field, but only when a user ...

It is possible to set up a secondary data source in InfoPath to read/write to another list in your site (https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Add-a-data-connection-to-a-SharePoint-document-library-or-list-3233d77d-95af-4245-a124-dca2f6d5d02e) -- although it would seem that you run the risk of a concurrency issue -- even in your current scenario, since ...

Add a new receiving data connection with the list, e.g. ReceivingData. Set a default value for your control, which shall display the owner. As a default value you choose your owner column, but add a filter to it.

You could probably whip something together and fix the lookups via workflow after item creation. Thinking aloud, you'd want to use a submit with rules action. You'd first submit to your orders list and then use some piece of metadata (like a title you build to make it unique) from that to then in turn submit with your repeating item data.
Then on your items ...

UDCX files have issues with them and its really hard to maintain them as connections, I had a bad experience using them!
Instead I would suggest to use a separate Web Service (WCF/ASMX) and use that in InfoPath.. This will give you more flexibility and you don't have to worry at all about permissions.. You just need to manage SharePoint ...
I believe that this has already been answered: InfoPath Form and Web Service (would violate cross-domain restrictions) Are you using Office 365?
Also take a look at this article. It discusses a solution for this issue (in a SharePoint install, not office 365):
