Repeating Table Within Repeating Table

Erik ter Elst
Hi,

I'm developing a form with which I'll be asking suppliers if there are forbidden substances in their products. They need to be able to insert X parts and Y substances per part.

This means I need a repeating table, to be able to insert new parts. But I also need a repeating table to input Y substances for each part. So a repeating table within a repeating table. This is possible in MS Infopath. Is it also possible in Orbeon?

Thanks!

Kind regards,
Erik ter Elst

Hi Erik,

You can't create a repeated grid inside a repeated grid with Form Builder (and more generally with Form Builder can't have a grid within a grid), but you can handle the scenario you mentioned with repeated sections. Create a repeated section for the "parts", and inside that section either another repeated section or a repeated grid for the "substances". Would that work for you?
