Gathering accurate information from employees, clients, and customers has always been an important factor in maintaining a successful business. Many applications can assist in the creation of forms, but their delivery methods are often limited.

He teaches how to use an array of pre-built templates, and also how to import previously developed forms from Word or Excel. He also covers how to publish these forms with a variety of applications, including Xcopy and SharePoint. David covers many aspects of typical forms, from pull-down lists to custom designs that tie the form to a company's needs. Exercise files accompany the course.

Topics include:
  • Building a form from samples or creating a brand-new form from scratch Inserting a repeating table into an existing form Adding and modifying buttons to simplify form functions Creating specialized views in a single form for different users Connecting newly created forms to SharePoint Customizing the work environment to improve form efficiency

Q: When trying to open a file in InfoPath 2007, I get an error that says to open the form in the location it was published to. It also says: “Forms that require the domain permission level contain features that access information on a network, such as data connections, linked images, and code.”
What is causing the error, and how can the file be opened?
A: This is a known issue with InfoPath. Instead of double-clicking on the file, right-click on the file and select Design. That will allow you to open the files.
