Normally in the we are developing InfoPath in a test server and published it in to the production server. when we are going to publish in to the different server InfoPath asked to change the connection files accordingly. But sometimes when we are changing the publish location it is giving wrong URL’s for the connections.
thus you can manually change the connection URL properties in the InfoPath manifest files. but please be careful of what you are doing.
Howe to Change InfoPath Manifest manually
- Export Info path as source files.
- change the manifest and save it.
- Tips: InfoPath data connections are stored in the section <xsf:dataObjects>
- You can change the urls by using site collection, baseurl , relaliveurl attributes.
- Open manifest as design.
- save it again as xsn.
