I want to be able to include the same subform on a form multiple times.
For exampe if I were making a billing system it would require several addresses; order address, billing address, shipping address. Then I could build one subform; address. Then I could include it three times, each with a name. Then I could reference the fields on the subform using name-spaces such as order_address.city, shipping_address.zip, etc.

I can see why you want this, but I think the issues around how to handle multiple instances of the same field would require too much of a change to make it worthwhile.

Same here. I'ld love this too, but how on earth do you think this is feasable.
I do vote in favor !

If a fieldname could be qualified, e.g. Subform1.Field and Subform2.Field, this might work. But that would break the entire point in data being separate from design so I can't see how this is possible without breaking every design already in play.

So you think this is a good idea, want to see it, but still you demote it? Isn't the point of this that we're supposed to tell Lotus what we *want*, not what we think is possible?
