I want to know what happens in the next scenario:

I got a dropdownlist that comes from a list in sharepoint with the values 1,2,3 and I fill many forms with this data, then I delete this values from the list and convert them in a,b,c that has nothing to do with the former values, what happen to the value saved in the old forms?

I delete the values from the list, but what happens with the values I recorded in the form? (in the xml), when I reopen the form what values appears? it respect the recorded value even is not in the current list? – Luis Molina Jul 24 '14 at 6:36
