A form does not receive all the items from a Windows SharePoint Services library or from a Windows SharePoint Services list in InfoPath


View products that this article applies to.

Symptoms

When you create a form in Microsoft Office InfoPath 2007 or in Microsoft Office InfoPath 2003 Service Pack 1 (SP1) that receives data from a Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services library or from a Windows SharePoint Services list, the form does not receive all the items from the library or from the list. The number of items that the form receives is equal to the item limit that is set for the main view of the Windows SharePoint Services library or of the Windows SharePoint Services list. This behavior occurs even if you select a different view that has a different item count.

Note The maximum limit of the Windows SharePoint Services library items displayed on a page is 100.
