  • Blog Post: InfoPath: Adding a button to switch between views

    The ability to have multiple views of information and multiple uses for forms is one of the great features of InfoPath. And yet, any person responsible for supporting the users working with the forms can tell you that it can be a real challenge to users to have to switch views via the menu system. However...
  • Blog Post: InfoPath Question: Easy way to specify order of forms to be merged?

    I'm thinking that the answer to this question is “No” because of an article I found on MSDN that said InfoPath gets the list of forms that were selected in the Merge Forms dialog box. More than one form can be selected, and forms are processed in an arbitrary order. but does anyone...

  • Blog Post: The InfoPath team has a blog!

    KC just pointed out to me that the InfoPath team has a blog . I was embarrassed to find that they've been blogging for a week ( 12 posts already ) and I didn't notice!

  • Blog Post: SharePoint List as secondary datasource

    Jan Tielen s has a great post about using SharePoint Lists as a secondary datasource: The InfoPath Service Pack1 adds some nice features to InfoPath, there a few that I really like.

  • Blog Post: Roger Jennings: Great InfoPath resources

    I found this comment by Roger Jennings to my previous post about the InfoPath 2003 SP-1 Preview and Toolkit for Visual Studio .Net, and wanted to share it: I've been working with InfoPath since the Office System 2003 beta.

  • Blog Post: Is there a runtime version of InfoPath?

    This seems to be a fairly common question, and recently there was an especially well-crafted answer provided on an internal InfoPath user discussion alias. I asked, and received, permission to include it here. (Thanks to the person who wrote this and allowed me to share it with my readers!) Q: Is...
  • Blog Post: InfoPath How To: Change the Script Language of your Form

    So, in the previous post , I talked about Duncan providing the validation code to make sure that a date specified in my InfoPath form was a Friday. Unfortunately for me (or so I thought), the code he provided was VB script, and my Form already had JScript specified (because I had entered the script editor...
  • Blog Post: One of the joys of working with Duncan

    I've talked before about our InfoPath form associated with a SharePoint (WSS) library that we use for status reporting ( ). I use a 'week of' field and custom views for grouping status reports for a specific week. The date needs to be set to the same date for all status reports for that week, otherwise...
  • Blog Post: Integrate an InfoPath Form with an Access Database

    In the InfoPath webcast on Friday January 23 , Raghu mentioned an article about Integrating InfoPath and Access. He said he thought it was in the Access section of the MSDN Library , but it actually lives in the InfoPath Section . Microsoft Office InfoPath 2003 supports using a Microsoft Office...

  • Blog Post: New KB Articles of interest to SharePoint fans

    There were a couple of interesting new KB articles in the last couple of days that I haven't mentioned yet: 831090 "Cannot run the FrontPage Server Extensions on this page" error message when you try to upload a file to your SharePoint Web site. This can happen if someone edits the site's upload.aspx...
  • Blog Post: InfoPath Webcasts/Training continued

    After watching the second webcast in the series yesterday (which was good but fast paced), I downloaded the Training Materials I talked about earlier in the week.

  • Blog Post: Why all the SharePoint/InfoPath posts?

    As the whole blog transition has wound to a close, and I've ended up with two separate homes, I've been thinking a lot about how I can add value to the community through this blog (other than a series of perhaps interesting, but generally inconsequential, anecdotes ;-) If you're reading this blog, then...

  • Blog Post: I'm obsessed with InfoPath...

    Or at least it's capabilities.  For years I've struggled with, and invented, and fudged, and jury-rigged, many ways to deal with and track project information.  We have a status report InfoPath form in a Sharepoint library, and each Monday I read each project status for...
