We're planning to use XForms to collect XML data (currently using Novell
XForms Explorer for IE). The data we're collecting is company data, 1 file
per company. The schema is change from time to time which most of the time
is resulting in newly added data elements. The XForms controls need to be
added accordingly to accept the new data elements. There is no problem on
new file data entry so far but the problem arise when dealing with existing
files. Because Xforms' controls bind to existance of element in an instance
document. The newly added controls don't get display because no such data
ever exists before. Do I missing something?

One other issue is about repeat control. Usually we provide a trigger to
insert and delete repeated element. Once we delete all elements, we have
way(s) to insert it back again?

Many thanks in advance

Saran
