Touring InfoPath

The preceding examples of InfoPath forms demonstrate what you’ll be able to do with InfoPath after working your way through the design-related chapters in Part II and Part III. Now it’s time to launch InfoPath and give it a test drive with one of InfoPath’s sample forms.

InfoPath’s Guided Tour

To watch an animated (Macromedia Flash) preview of how InfoPath works, you can take the Microsoft Office InfoPath 2003 Tour by following these steps:

Choose Start, (All) Programs, Microsoft Office, Microsoft Office InfoPath 2003 to open the Fill Out a Form dialog box.

Click the Take A Tour Of InfoPath link at the lower right of the dialog box to open the first tour page. Download the Macromedia Flash Player, if necessary, and then click the Start Tour button. The Flash presentation eventually displays the What Is InfoPath? page.

Click Continue twice to display the InfoPath Tour Contents page. You can return to the Contents page at any time by clicking the Contents button at the top of a page.

Click the Filling Out Forms link, which leads to a page of the same name.

Click the Play button to start an animated segment.

When the segment completes its animation cycle, click the Return link and then the Continue link. Filling Out Forms, for example, has 7 animated segments. The Designing Your Own Forms topic has 10 segments.
