What Is a Form Library?

A form library is much like a document library, but it is supposed to host only Microsoft InfoPath forms. Microsoft InfoPath is electronic form-creation software that integrates with SharePoint. Forms created with InfoPath can be published to SharePoint form libraries, and users can then fill out these forms.

With SharePoint Server, you can load some InfoPath forms without having Microsoft InfoPath installed on your machine. In this case, the form opens in a browser, as a web form. If you have a program that can edit InfoPath forms, such as Microsoft InfoPath 2007 or Microsoft InfoPath Filler 2010, the form opens in that program.

If your company uses InfoPath for creating forms, you might want to learn how to read forms that are in form libraries, as explained in Chapter 3. You also might want to learn how to fill forms, as explained in Chapter 6. (This book does not cover creating Microsoft InfoPath forms.)
