InfoPath

InfoPath is a new standalone product that ensures data integrity from entry through delivery. InfoPath operates through a forms paradigm. As a form generator, InfoPath has the expected controls: text box, list, checkbox, and much more. However, there are new aspects of form creation that are unseen in other Office products. One feature is the inherent power of InfoPath to make forms conform to an XML schema. A schema describes the requirements and constraints of data. InfoPath flows the schema rules into the form, thereby forcing conformity of data at the point of entry. Figure 1.7 shows an InfoPath form being designed.
