I have customized a nornal SharePoint list with InfoPath that will not allow users to upload any attachments with special characters. However when I click on the Submit button, though the form cannot be submitted, a list entry is being created in the list.

How can I prevent the list from creating items? Is there a way that I can enforce a rule on the Submit button? If so how?

I have followed the following posts:


Though I'm getting the default pop-up, the data is submitted in the backend list

Any suggestions?

  • You can always add a formatting rule on a button and disable the button or hide it if the conditions are not met. – Christoffer Jul 16 '15 at 8:33
  • Welll tried that as well....but it doesn't work. I'm assuming it because its the default attachment column – Chandra Shekhar Jul 16 '15 at 8:40
