I have my InfoPath document set to open in the browser, but when I try to open it from SharePoint I get an error that says:

Error: This form cannot be opened in a Web browser. To open this form, use Microsoft InfoPath

. Does anyone know how to fix this so that my InfoPath document opens in the browser?

In InfoPath, there's a setting to only use components that are browser compatible. There's also a way to check before publishing whether the form is browser-compatible. It's likely you've included something that isn't.
