I have a serious problem with the Infopath 2010 List form i deployed recently. Every time I edit a previously filled form, it creates a new Infopath 2010 form .

How can I restrict the creation of new forms from the edited one? I want to be able to edit a form and have it published without creating a new form.

  • do you edit in design mode?

Check you have got "Overwrite form" ticked for the submit. Check that the way you create the filename name for form doesn't change depending on the time saved/submitted, or similar.
