Developers of Duet Enterprise for Microsoft SharePoint and SAP solutions can replace the default SharePoint Create, View, and Update forms of an external list by using Microsoft InfoPath 2010 forms.

Applies to: Duet Enterprise for Microsoft SharePoint and SAP Server 2.0 | Office 2010 | SharePoint Server 2010

Duet Enterprise surfaces data from SAP systems by using Microsoft Business Connectivity Services (BCS) external lists.

Replacing the default SharePoint forms with InfoPath forms

Business Connectivity Services generates default SharePoint Server 2010 forms for viewing, creating, and editing items from those external lists automatically. However, customization options on these basic Web Part forms can be limited. To perform rich customizations or add declarative rules or business logic to the Duet Enterprise forms, you can replace the default SharePoint Server 2010 Create, View, and Update forms of an external list with InfoPath 2010 forms or by creating custom Web Parts.For more information about using InfoPath to customize external list forms, see How to: Customize External List Forms Using Microsoft InfoPath (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee554886.aspx).
