Infopath 2007 to Infopath 2010

    Discuţie generală

  • Hi,

    I need to upgrade an Infopath 2007 Filler Form to an Infopath  2010 Filler Form.

    It is a pretty complex form, it has about 17 views, 20 Data Connections (Web Services, Sharepoint Lists) and it is used to generate a Word document based on a XSLT template.

    What found as an issue / limitation is tha when I try to Upgrade any of the Sharepoint List Data Connections, it displays the following message:

    "...All Controls that use data retrieved by this connection will no longer display any data and will need to be configured again"

    Therefore I need to remap all controls inside the form to display the original values, etc, which is not an easy task due to the amount of controls.

    Another question: Is there a way to get the list of all Controls, Textboxes, etc and their respective bindings, connections, etc?

    Please advise, I need to finish this and any help is useful at this point.

  • Hi true_oss,

    Is there any reason why you need to change the InfoPath 2007 Filler Form to an Infopath 2010 Filler Form. So far in my experience you can still fill in a InfoPath 2007 Filler Form in InfoPath 2010. Also you can update the InfoPath 2007 Filler Form to 2010 without updating the SharePoint List data connections. 

    Kind Regards, Justin Nash

  • Hi Justin,

    The upgrade of the form is the first step of many other future enhancements.

    But as I mentioned before when trying to save the XSN 2007 file to a XSN 2010 file I get an error forcing me to upgrade the connections.

    Is there any workaround for this?

    Any help is abolutely apreciated :D

    NOTE: The connection to the SharePoint 2010 lists are not connection files, this is due to performance.
