It's not possible to spend very long reading about SharePoint before the word InfoPath comes along. InfoPath 2007 is a member of the Microsoft Office family that allows electronic forms to be created to collect and manage data.
InfoPath forms can be submitted via Outlook email messages, forms for mobile devices, or browser-based forms. When a form is submitted, the data is saved as XML. As a result, InfoPath forms can be integrated into most data workflows. InfoPath fits seamlessly into business processes that use Microsoft BizTalk Server or SharePoint.
We can integrate InfoPath forms into our SharePoint site through the InfoPath form library (part of the SharePoint Libraries). Creating a new form library is simple:
Expand the SharePoint Libraries node in the Data Source Library task pane.
Click on the Create new Document Library... link.
Ensure that Document Libraries is selected in the left-hand column.
Click on Form Library in the central column.
Specify a name for your document library...
