Viewing and Sorting Form Data


InfoPath forms can be designed so that you can view and sort the data in various ways. For example, you might choose to view a summary of a list of items versus a list showing the detail of each item. Or you might sort data by categories, date, name ,or any piece of data collected on the form.
