InfoPath 2010 with SharePoint 2010 video transcript
Here I'm in SharePoint 2010 where I've got this SharePoint list that contains the names and colors of Office applications.
I've already published an InfoPath form template to a SharePoint form library and embedded an InfoPath form on this page.
When the form opens you'll see that it displays the list of Office applications here on the left and on the right I can select which Office applications I would like to delete. For example, I would like to delete Publisher and Visio.
And when I click Delete List Item(s), you'll see that the two items I selected on the right will disappear on the left. And then when I go to the OfficeApplications SharePoint list, you'll see that the two items are not present in the list anymore.
