Are you filling the second tab after saving the first tab?, If you yes you can extract the data from tab1 repeating section and construct a different xml with any controls that you need for the for the second tab repeating section using workflow.
It was helpful but unfortunately we do modify the form frequently so it's not an exact solution for our needs. We ended up taking the second part off and doing that manually since we have to print the form out for customers.
Still would like to know if this is possible though.
if it is just matter of some controls not being printed, I think you do not need duplicate repeating section at all.
you can assign controls the shouldn't be printed some custom class and define CSS style for the class tat will exclude controls from print outs.
see plenty of examples from google https://www.google.sk/search?q=noprint+css&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&client=firefox-b&gfe_rd=cr&ei=L9LtWP7JB...
I have a similar requirement -- with a twist:
I have 2 repeating sections on same form - RS1 set to visible/display only, no edit, no add new line;
RS2 - is used for adding new lines.
I need to append the added lines from RS2 to RS1; then clear RS2 for next update.
When the form is marked complete RS2 will be hidden - no more updates allowed.
(I'm looking at Paul Crawford's input from above)
I am trying to recreate your solution however i have an error that occurs.
Could you possibly explain this further and list the field names?
