I’ve been working on an InfoPath solution for one of our customers. I’ve certainly learnt quite a bit while doing this.
Just wanted to post about this excellent tip
I needed a list of SharePoint users in a drop-down list box.
Your can’t access the user list in the same way you would a standard list
This post from Jan Tielen shows how to give one of the web services a kick to return the information you need. The post is very in depth but it’s actually pretty straightforward and i had it working in no time
Top marks to Jan!
#Note 1 # I used this on Sharepoint 2003 & Infopath 2003. I’m not sure if any of this applies for 2007
#Note 2 # Jan’s tip talks in the conext of a Visual Studio based solution. This particular project didn’t call for that but it still works perfectly well if your using vbscript in the background
