Create a save button on a InfoPath form

I want to hide the ribbon, create a submit button on the form (done) and after the submitter clicks the "submit" button, the submit button disappears (done) and the save/update button appears and stays for all future updates to the form (need help with this part)

thanks

RE: Create a save button on a InfoPath form

Look into Rules and hidden fields to show/hide buttons.

Something like:
If formStatus (could be a hidden field) = Not New
--> hide the submit button.
--> show the save button.


formStatus can be set at diffident stages of your forms life.
New form is created, the default value of formStatus would be New.
After the form is saved for the first time, the field would be updated to Not New or something else.
