A short sharing since I was amazed of the quality of feedback I received today from InfoPath and could have spent hours on this.
- Create an infopath form (here 2013, but may be the same in previous versions as it hasn’t moved that much at all since 2007)
- Publish it to Sharepoint (2013) as a Content Type
- Bang ! Infopath prompts for a login/password for the Webs.asmx web service
- Entering any login still fails.
After a bit of thinking I went back a few step on that Publishing dialog box and noticed that I pasted some text that my client wanted to see displayed and it was just that: InfoPath didn’t like to transform the Description of the form or Sharepoint refused it because some characters were incorrectly formatted.
So don’t be fooled by InfoPath / Sharepoint, the error doesn’t always lays where you think it is.
