View products that this article applies to.

Symptoms

Consider the following scenario:
  • In Microsoft Office InfoPath 2007, you publish a site content type.
  • You create a new InfoPath form that is based on this site content type, and then you save the InfoPath form.
  • You change the site content type, and then you republish the site content type to update the site content type on the server. However, you save the updated site content type in a different location.
In this scenario, the InfoPath form that you create based on the original site content type still uses the original site content type when you open the InfoPath form.

Cause

This problem occurs because the individual InfoPath forms in the document library are not updated when you update the site content type. This occurs even though the content type that is provisioned on the document library is updated when you update the site content type.
