We have migrated data from some legacy DB's into Sharepoint as list(s). We are finding that some of the sites would benefit from using Infopath Form Services.
In order to get the most use out of Infopath Form services with the least amount of overhead in terms of coding or using data connections / CAML, it would be nice if somehow we could convert these 100 Sharepoint lists into Form Libraries that Infopath Form
Services can automatically submit & retrieve data from virtually OOB.
Now, I know how to make an Infopath form Send & Recieve data from a Sharepoint list & have done this, but to duplicate that process for 300 Infopath forms is not going to be cost-effective in terms of time spent doing this for each form. So my preference
is to make this work OOB.
With that said, is there anyway to convert an existing Sharepoint List into a Form Library that Infopath can use OOB? Does Sharepoint have any kind of a webservice to do this? Can I generate the XML needed to encapsulate a Sharepoint List that an Infopath
Form Library creates OOB?
