VSTA and InfoPath

  Asked By: Faith    Date: Mar 09    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1065

I am using visual studio tools for application in the load event of my
infopath form to grap data from ldap. My question is once you publish
the form to a sharepoint form library list does the server that houses
the sharepoint site need to have VSTA on it.

Does anyone know of an easier way to grab data from ldap and repopulate
an infopath form, I am new to infopath so i am not to sure about visual

When I've needed LDAP information for a form  in the past, I've just created
a web method that returns what I need. Then it's just a question  of
creating a data  connection in the form template and calling it as needed.
