I am converting a large MS Word document manually into an Infopath form in Sharepoint 2010. After adding about 100 rows of text, I see that the Save and Close buttons are disabled on the Edit menu/Commit group ribbon. What is happening? Why is it happening? And how can I work around this problem? Thanks!

Follow these steps to make your buttons work again:

  • Go to the tab named "DATA"
  • Now click on "Submit Options"
  • Select the option "allow users to submit this form".
  • Select from the pull down menu "SharePoint List". Then you will see the grey "save button"

These steps worked for me :)
