Infopath 2007 brings the new feature of rendering the infopath documents in the browser. However this feature can be slightly confusing for the beginners. When MOSS 2007 beta 2 was released I took me 2 days to find out how to render your own infopath document to browser.
The steps for this are below:
§ Complete the publishing wizard (using the SharePoint option) and publish the form to a shared location
§ Launch the SharePoint Central Admin page
§ Select Application Management
§ From the InfoPath Forms Services section select Manage Form Templates
§ Click Upload Form Template
§ Click the Browse button and navigate to the shared location where you published the form
§ Highlight the form and click Open
§ Click Upload
§ Assuming the template uploads successfully, you will be returned to the Manage Form Templates page. Click on the uploaded template and select Activate to a Site Collection
§ If the Site Collection box has the correct site, click OK. If not, click the site and you will be able to change to the correct site.
§ Once the activation has completed, you can now associate the form with a form/document library
§ Navigate to/Create a form or document library
§ From the Settings button, choose Form (Document) Library Settings
§ Select Advanced Settings
§ For “Allow Management of Content Types” choose Yes and click OK
§ You should now see a new section called Content Types – click “Add from existing site content types”
§ Drop down the box and choose Microsoft Office InfoPath
§ From the “Available Site Content Types”, highlight the form you activated, click Add and then click OKMail me your comments and suggestions.
