Manage data in your SharePoint Lists using the InfoPath Form Web Part

One of the powerful new features in InfoPath 2010 is the InfoPath Form Web Part.

This is the 1st in a series of videos where we will show how to use the InfoPath Form Web Part to create rich mashups on portal pages in SharePoint, without writing a single line of code. In this video, Nick Dallett, a program manager lead on the InfoPath team, will demo two simple scenarios for managing data in your SharePoint lists using the InfoPath Form Web Part.

    Nice video!

    I have a question though. I am trying to create a custom InfoPath form for a list which has a column of the type External Data, but I can’t get that to work.

    InfoPath gives me the following error:

    The following fields in the SharePoint list are not supported because of their data type and will not be available in InfoPath Designer: Product (BusinessData)

    Any idea how to solve this? Thanks already!

    In InfoPath 2010, we don’t support External Data fields in SharePoint list forms.
