In this chapter you will learn to:
Modify an existing form.
Design a new form.
Create form views.
Validate form data.
With Microsoft InfoPath 2003, you have the power to create robust, dynamic forms. You can modify an existing form, customize a sample form, create a form from an existing XML data source or database, or design a new form from scratch. In each form, you determine its layout, the data fields and the controls for completing them, the data structure and rules for data validation, and the ways in which the form can be viewed . Your form can include rich text, tables, text boxes, drop-down lists, optional sections, repeating sections, links, and more.
