    Can you convert a xsn to a xtp2?

    By mistake I create what was intended to be a template part in as a form.  Is there a way I can convert all that information into a template part or do I have to rebuild everything?

    I don't believe there is an easy way to do this.  If you do find one, I'd be interested to know! :)

    For now, you can start by just copying and pasting all your controls from your view(s) into the XTP.  Though you will have to recreate all your rules, data connections, etc. from scratch.

    This may work (have not tested this out):

    1. Recreate schema in template part

    2. Add any data connections/resource files that you wanted in there

    3. Copy all of the data from the .xsl file into the new .xsl file

    4. Copy mafiest data over.

    5. Going to test this out right now because I'm interested and I'm sure I am missing something that will pop up

    Edit: Something popped up. Infomartion gets added to the .ict file of a Template Part (buttons and probably other unbound controls), so this would be not very fun to do.
