Maximum number of columns in List for InfoPath to customise?


  • What is the maximum number of columns I can have in a list to be able to customise it with InfoPath?

    We have ~180 columns in our list, and it was working before with ~80, however it's now failing with "The SOAP message cannot be parsed"  error. Please see my StackExchange Error post here.

    So just wondering if InfoPath can't handle too many columns? Or perhaps IIS is killing the message because the XML packet sent to the service is too large?

    Update: I increased all IPFS settings in Central Admin ten-fold, but I still got the same error.

    Update: As per my StackExchange post - I saved the list as a blank template and was able to customize the list with InfoPath and publish the changes. Seems it could also be data-related. The current list has ~1000 items in it.
