    Form based on Web Service stops working

    Created a form based on a Web Service which uses "track changes" to submit a repeating table as a dataset to a web service to handle multiple inserts/updates/deletes all in one web service call.

     Decided to convert the form to use Universal Data connections so as to be able to have Live and Test versions using different site collections

     All the secondary data connections work fine BUT the "main submit" does not work any more - no records are inserted in the database table

    I read somewhere (TOO LATE!) that Web forms do not support "track changes" but I am using Infopath Client.  Is it the case that UDC's do not support "track changes" or have I missed something that I can easily fix.

     Worst thing is that converting to UDC's is irreversible.  Tried unpacking the form and editing the MANIFEST.XSF using Notepad but that would not work either

    Anybody got an answer?

    Hi Phil D,

    I have no idea about "track changes". Did you make a backup of your XSN?

    "track changes" refers to the last dialogue box in the main query data connection wizard when you connect to a web service as your main query.  You just tick a box

     I managed to get the DBA to restore the Sharepoint database so I could get back to the last good version.  Figure it's time I started using SourceSafe!

     It is a shame that 2 of the best features of InfoPath cannot be combined in the same form!!

    Yeah, I know what you are talking about regarding "track changes", but don't know why it isn't working.

    We can contact Microsoft if you want. We tend to use generic Web services here that don't change their parameters so the whole "track changes" thing is moot. We track changes to the XML and XSN in the Web Service (or in SharePoint if people have that). The problem with trying to do ADO update diffgrams (or whatever they are called) is that they don't work for old XML forms when multiple updates are made.
