Getting support/help on SharePoint and InfoPath

As 2006 rolls in, it seems like a good time to remind folks about support resources for SharePoint and InfoPath.  Each month I get one to several emails requesting help with a specific problem — as intriguing as some of those questions are, I just don’t have time to research and answer them.  So, if…

InfoPath: Adding a button to switch between views

The ability to have multiple views of information and multiple uses for forms is one of the great features of InfoPath.

Lamont Harrington: Great list of SharePoint Resources

Today I was looking for some information for users on “Getting Started with WSS” (this is for the non-profit that I set up a SharePoint site for) and I ran across Lamont Harrington’s blog.  There are some really great resources here, I don’t know how I missed it previously!  One of the most useful posts…
