Check your form template for problems InfoPath 2007

Author: mety Nagm Labels::



  1. To open the Design Checker task pane, click Design Checker on the Tools menu. If there are any compatibility or design problems with the form template, you will see errors and messages in the Design Checker task pane.
    The following table describes the difference between errors and messages in the Design Checker task pane.
    IconTypeDescription
    Icon imageErrorThe form template will not function correctly. You should fix the errors before you publish the form template.
    Icon imageMessageThe form template may not function as expected. Messages are less serious than errors. You can choose whether to address the messages before you publish the form template.

  2. In the Design Checker task pane, click the text of the error or message you want to review. When you do this, one of the following things generally happens:
    • If the problem results from an unsupported control or other object on the form template, InfoPath automatically selects that control or object for you. To get more detail about the problem, right-click the control or object on the form template, and then click More Details on the shortcut menu.
    • If the problem results from an unsupported setting — for example, if your form template includes user roles, which don't work in browser-compatible form templates — InfoPath displays a more descriptive alert that explains the problem.
  3. Review the errors and fix them.
  4. Review the messages and decide whether you need to fix them.
  5. To update the list of errors and messages as you resolve them, click Refresh. Note Clicking the Refresh button won't update messages that appear as a result of importing a Word document into InfoPath. If you want to remove import messages from the Design Checker task pane, you must open the Resource Files dialog box (Tools menu), and then remove the file named ImportErrors.xml. This file is created automatically when you import a Word document into InfoPath. After you remove the ImportErrors.xml file, click Refresh in the Design Checker task pane to permanently delete the import messages. The ImportErrors.xml file isn't required for the form template to function properly. In fact, for security reasons, it is good practice to remove this file before publishing your form template.

Hide certain types of messages in the Design Checker task pane

Unlike errors, messages don't prevent you from sucessfully publishing your form template. For this reason, there may be times when you prefer to hide messages or specific categories of messages in the Design Checker task pane. This may be because you have reviewed the messages already, or because you want to ignore certain messages, such as ones about backward compatibility.
  1. To open the Design Checker task pane, click Design Checker on the Tools menu.
  2. In the Design Checker task pane, click Options, and then do one of the following:
      • To hide messages about imported forms, click Show Import Messages.
      • To hide messages about offline data sources, click Show Offline Messages.
      • To hide messages about browser-compatible form templates, click Show Browser Compatibility Messages.
      • To hide messages about browser optimization, click Show Browser Optimization Messages. Note This command appears only if the Verify on server check box is selected in the Design Checker task pane.
      • To hide messages about backwards compatibility with InfoPath 2003, click Show Backward Compatibility Messages. Note This command appears only if the Show report on compatibility with InfoPath 2003 check box is selected in the Form Options dialog box.
