This is probably going to need input from the InfoPath 2007 Team but I figured I’d put it out there anyway.
We are trying to use the email data connection functionality to email an InfoPath form to a user external to our network to fill out and return to us.
The InfoPath form template is published to a SharePoint Form Library. Even though we have checked the option, “Attach the form template to ensure that users can open the form”, the form still tries to connect to the SharePoint Form Library Template. This is a big problem for the solution we need to develop.
Is this a bug? If not, when does the “Attach the form template to ensure that users can open the form” option work? If the form always looks for it in the published location, what good does attaching the form template to the email message do?
In case anyone offers the solution of “Restricted Mode”
The only way we’ve been able to get a semi-working model of this is using restricted mode which unfortuantely introduces other issues which make this “not” an option.
If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated. Drop me an email email@example.com or leave a comment here.
