InfoPath demo video transcript:

Here I'm in SharePoint 2010, where I've got this Excel workbook that contains a table with a list of food items. The idea is that I want to use an InfoPath form to add new items to this Excel table.

I've already published an InfoPath form template to this SharePoint form library, so if I click Add document and enter the name of a new item and then click this button, the item should have been added to the table.

So I'll go back to the Excel workbook and refresh the data. And as you can see, we've got a new item here at the end of the list.

I can repeat the process and add a second item. And then again I'll refresh the data in the workbook. And as you can see here we've got the new item listed at the end of the list of items.
