Export InfoPath e-mail form data from Outlook

If you already use Microsoft Office InfoPath forms for tasks like submitting weekly status reports, and if you use Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 to manage e-mail messages, InfoPath e-mail forms can help streamline the processes that you use to collaborate and share data. That is because you can open, fill out, and submit InfoPath forms from within Office Outlook 2007, without having to open InfoPath. If you receive an InfoPath e-mail form, you can reply to it, forward it, and store it just as you would with any other items in Office Outlook 2007.

You can export form data from one or more InfoPath e-mail forms to a Microsoft Office Excel 2007 workbook and export InfoPath e-mail forms as individual XML files that can be saved and opened later by using InfoPath. You can also export form data from a single InfoPath e-mail form to additional supported file formats.

 Note   You can save as a PDF or XPS file from a 2007 Microsoft Office system program only after you install an add-in. For more information, see Enable support for other file formats, such as PDF and XPS.
