Convert form library to list to rebuild form?

Jump to solution

We have a form library with an InfoPath form published as a content type. We doing away with InfoPath and SPD all together and rebuilding with Nintex forms and Workflows. We have a requirement to keep the existing data from the form library, but we need to convert to a SharePoint list so we can use Nintex Forms.

Any tricks out there or experience converting a SharePoint form library (InfoPath form) with existing data into a SharePoint list so we can use a Nintex form?

Any advice much appreciated!

Hi Reed Carr,

If you were able to resolve your query then please post the same to help others on the community.

*You can create another list with same columns, customize the form in the way you want and then migrate the date to the list from the form library.

Hi ‌,

We ended up doing as you suggest and manually moving data from the form library to a new custom list. This didn't retain the version and created/modified information as we had hoped, but it DID get the job done in the end. I know Nintex is not intended to be a direct replacement for InfoPath, but certainly a lot of users would likely appreciate a tool or method to import form library data into a list for use with Nintex forms. Thanks!
