Import data from InfoPath forms to AX 4.0

Here is a very high-level description on how you can import data from an InfoPath form to AX 4.0:

  1. Create the AX web service you want to use (e.g. to create a sales order)
  2. Create a new InfoPath form
  3. Define the web service as data source in InfoPath and point InfoPath to the web service's WSDL (URL)
  4. Drag and drop the required fields (e.g. the entire DocumentContext and a subset of fields on SalesOrder) onto the InfoPath form
  5. Save & publish
  6. Now, you can use the InfoPath form to fill in customer data and submit requests into AX
