When you published the form, it would've prompted you to save it to your hard drive. Simply open InfoPath Designer, and edit the saved form. When you are done modifying it, publish it again and it will update the previously published form.

I think the problem is caused by how InfoPath works internally. It looks like numbers are casted between decimals and doubles and some precision is lost. For example the first number will probably something like 0.22449999999 instead of the 0.2245 it should be and therefor it will be rounded down instead of up.

That said, it's a question most SharePoint admins will face eventually - you have a system built in SharePoint that is USED by a large audience, but is OWNED or MAINTAINED by one or more smaller audiences. In most cases, I place both the form template and the ...

You need to add the logic to set the boolean field just before the submit rule on the button, and have the formatting rule on the button to hide it when that boolean field == true. If you add this logic to the field after the submitting rule, it will not be saved with the form, and next time users open the form it won't be hidden as the rule to hide it came ...

My personal experience--you can easily manage multiple list items in the infoPath List template (meaning you can have your repeating field not overwrite itself each time a user inserts the field (needs secondary XML). However, I am switching to the infoPath Library template form because I need digital signatures and it appears the the list template doesn't ...

The issue is the way that SharePoint infopath forms work is the data is stored in the infopath xml file itself and any promoted columns will also store the data in form libray (the content database) as column data. So since you are updating the database directly, you are only changing what is shown in the sharepoint column on a view and not what is actually ...

They are giving out mixed messages at Redmond. Some of their blogs don't give any real clue (as Per Tomasz' post above) yet they have given demos of something called Forms on Sharepoint Lists (FoSL). This appears to be the same form technology as used in the current Access 2013. Have a look about halfway through this video for a very brief demo (full of ...

I think you have two options here. You can turn on Version History for this list. I won't show it like you have above, but it will collect the data. You can create a new multiple lines column and append the new modified information to that column.

Have you tried this idea? 1) The first thing you need to do is disable the save/save as buttons, and instead of using those on your form, use a custom submit button (no code) by following my blog entry: Auto-Generating Filenames for InfoPath Forms. 2) Then, add a 2nd button that does the same thing, but make it so that this either uses a separate ...
