InfoPath Category

While re-publishing an InfoPath form/template, if you get the error message below, there is a way around it, but it’s not the easiest solution in the world, but it has worked for me: Infopath cannot modify the form library template because the file does not exist. Copy the template to the form library or create […]

As you may or may not know, in InfoPath 2010, the FileAttachment controls only allows the user the ability to attach one file. But, there is an easy way to attach multiple documents.

In creating a rule for an InfoPath control, you might run across the need to clear out the contents of a Person/Group Picker control, much like you would for a textbox. Of course, it’s really easy with a textbox – choose the ‘set a field’s value’ action, giving it the name of the control and […]
