Microsoft InfoPath Classes

With InfoPath, you can create forms to gather data from your customers as well as your employees. Available as part of the Microsoft Office suite, InfoPath integrates with other Office products and delivers forms through Web browsers and e-mail messages. InfoPath makes it easy to incorporate drop-down lists, check boxes, date selection tools, and text boxes in your forms. The form templates you create in InfoPath ensure consistency and make data entry faster and easier.

InfoPath is also integrated with SharePoint. Form data can be sent directly to a SharePoint Services document library, and SharePoint Server's InfoPath Forms Services provides a powerful way to coordinate and manage forms. [More on InfoPath]
