Using the same subform to appear more than once in a form

This tip describes how to use the same subform to appear more than once in a form.

Inserting a sub-form more than once is not possible in Notes. To overcome this limitation apply the below technique. This technique will be useful in the case of header information (say a logo) needs to be added in the footer also. Instead of creating another sub-form you can use this technique to achieve the same. Make sure that there are no fields available in the sub-form. (Field with the same name can't be inserted more than once).

  1. Insert a computed sub-form and give the sub-form name as input to the Computed sub-form.
  2. Insert the same sub-form directly in to the form.
  3. Compose the form. You can find the same sub-form will be appearing twice.

Note: If you do the other way, by first inserting subform directly and inserting a computed subform leads to error.
