Showing Specific Columns Sharepoint 2010

I have an FAQ list.  I created an InfoPath form in which my content managers can add information to a list.  However, there are only a few fields that I want the customer to be able to view.   I am not sure how to adapt the view so that the following occurs.

Content manager entersr into these fields: question, answer, issue. summary, top faq

Customer sees these fields only fields: question, answer, issue

I know I am reading to much into this and it is simple.

Hi Bell,

If you want the user to see different information while viewing the form, then you can create views and write a form load event rule to show hide based on logged in user.

may be these links be of use to you -

Hope this helps!

Over my head. I cannot believe that code needs to be written to view certain columns. Thanks anyways.

As i understand, you want to show different column for different users in infopath form. You can create two different views in infopath form and switch view based on current user login. You also need to create two different SP groups so you can actually put the condition to switch view based on user group.

Create two groups and call them "Content manager entersr" and "Customer". Now create two views in infopath form and add controls accordingly. Now use below link to get the current user group via UserGroup.asmx web service and create rule on form load.

Correct me if i am wrong
