The Microsoft Office InfoPath 2003 Software Development Kit (SDK) developer sample forms are a set of forms designed to demonstrate development techniques for customizing and implementing InfoPath features, and, in some cases, integrating InfoPath with a back-end server or process.
All of the sample forms can be found in subfolders in the <drive>:\Program Files\Microsoft Office 2003 Developer Resources\Microsoft Office InfoPath 2003 SDK folder on your hard disk. The following table lists each of the developer sample forms and the features that they demonstrate.
