Duplicate records in multi-step entry process

  Asked By: Domonique    Date: Sep 29    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 8442

I am using Infopath to create a two-step sharepoint web form -- where
first step is preliminary data entry and second step is follow up data
input. I would like to accomplish this without sharepoint creating a
duplicate record -- however, I'm not sure how to do this. The fields
that I might ordinarily use as primary keys (@ID, @Created, etc.)
aren't established until after the 'submit' button is pressed.
Therefore, I can't 'title' the record in a unique way -- which could be
overwritten in the second step. Any thoughts?

I was able to resolve this by creating  two 'submit' data  connections.
The first named the document using 'now()' function. The
second 'submit' named the document (with overwrite capability)
using '@Title' field. This eliminated records  from being duplicated on
