    Is infopath the right product?

    Before I go further with infopath, I'm looking to implement a solution for a client who needs to provide his "traveling consultants" with "forms" (they are using Word
    models today)that can be filled on the road, sent by email,
    with data used later by a database, for generating reports and

    (today the statics words reports can obviously not be used

    Do you think infopath is the proper product?
    Do I also need "sharepoint" on the server?

    Very best,

    InfoPath can certainly be used the the scenario you just described. Your traveling consultants can have a form template installed on their laptops that will allow them to fill in the form and email it via submit. If you use an code submit hander, you can set a flag such that when the person receives the form on the other end, it knows switch views or whatever it needs to do. The form can then be submitted to SQL or Access for your reporting and statistics.

    There will be a bit of work you'll need to do to make this happen, but most of what you need has already been discussed in the newsgroup and can be found by searching Google Groups if you run into problems.

    SharePoint would not be required unless you find a reason for it.

    Hope this has helped!
