I've created a request form in Infopath and that will be filled out by a number of internal parties. This form is published to SharePoint and a copy of it is saved in the document library and also e-mailed out to an internal group.
In some cases, if the form dictates action is required, we will need to provide the submitted/completed form to these external vendors. These vendors may not use Microsoft products or Windows at all. What is the best way for these outside vendors to be able to view the form?
I have looked into converting it to a PDF but it looks like this would require expensive third party software. Is there another way? I'd be fine saving the submitted form as a PDF or an image or anything that is a more generic file format than an XML file that only renders in a readable manner in Infopath.
