  • In SharePoint 2007 InfoPath forms could only be used on MOSS 2007 standard and above.  They aren't supported on WSS alone.  For WSS you need to build your form as an ASPX form.

  • Hi Thanks for that.

    Is Robert Shelton the way to go then, it sems fairly involved :( ?

    Could you tell me about Sharepoint 2010 and infopath also. I want to create a custom task edit form. I have Sharepoint standard 2010 also (does not come with infopath forms). Will forms created with infopath (edit task) work  in this version of sharepoint?

     

    Thanks

  • I'm not familiar with the Robert Shelton tutorial you are refering to so I can't comment on that.

    Yes, you can use InfoPath forms for task edit forms in SharePoint 2010 Standard.  You would need InfoPath Forms services to use InfoPath forms in general, but support is built in for using them as task forms in a workflow.

  • Hi

    Going back to 2007, As I cant use infopath, how would I create a custom task form in aspx ? All I wanted was an approve and reject button, on approve it would set the percent to complete.

    Thanks
