    Import InfoPath 2010 forms used on SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint 2016

    Hello, InfoPath 2010 ├╝zerinde created vehicle request and permission request forms, We use it on SharePoint 2010. We started to use SharePoint 2016 and Infopath 2013 by installing a new server. We need to import the forms that we used on SharePoint 2010 that we created on InfoPath 2010 to Sharepoint 2016 with their databases. I've done research on these issues, but I've found no results, I would appreciate it if you can help.

    For the form template, I'd just open it in design mode, save as InfoPath 2013, and publish to the new server however you usually publish it (i.e. admin approve, directly to the library, as a content type). Update any data connections that IP doesn't offer to update automatically for you (I'm working on the assumption the URL will be changing). For the XML - I'd just copy those into the new form library, change to the relink view (may have to view the library in "Classic mode" to find that) and relink all the XML to the currently published template.

    I can open the form with infopath 2013, save it, and do it until 2016publish on sharepoint. But I didn't understand how to transfer the database on SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint 2016, can you show me this with an example?

    What do you mean by transferring the database? Are you talking about the SharePoint database?

    When referring to the database, forms that we created on InfoPath 2010 and published on SharePoint2010 are filled out by users and stored in the document library on sharepoint 2010. I want to move the stored form history (database) along with InfoPath forms onto SharePoint 2016.

    You can just copy / paste the XML over, but you'll lose the version history. I think you'll need to actually upgrade SharePoint in place or use a third party tool if you want to maintain your history.

    Hello, I shared a video with you about the forms I created on InfoPath, which I published on sharepoint 2010. Can you examine it? How do I import form history onto sharepoint 2016 with a third-party tool without upgrading sharepoint? Can you share a tool or method? https://youtu.be/uu-de7PIzPw

    I'm sorry, I feel like we are having a basic miscommunication. Do you have a SharePoint 2016 site set up? If so, create a library for your forms. Create any other SharePoint lists that your form may use for queries. Republish your SharePoint form to the new library. Copy all the XML from the old library to the new one - open the libraries in Windows Explorer to make this easy. Your new form library should have a "Relink" view - you may have to select Classic Experience to see it. In Relink view, click the Relink all button to connect the existing XML to the currently published template. A web search on "relink InfoPath forms" may be helpful to you.

    We canceled this topic because importing the form history (database) is difficult and complex. What we want to do now only is to move the forms we used in sharepoint 2010 to sharepoint 2016. Is it possible to can you tell me step by step how to transfer the forms we use in 2010 sharepoint to 2016 sharepoint?

    Re: Import InfoPath 2010 forms used on SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint 2016

    A lot of this depends on the types of data connections in your InfoPath forms, but in general, my initial advice still stands: Create a library for your forms. Create any other SharePoint lists that your form may use for queries. Republish your SharePoint form to the new library. If you use the same names for your lists / libraries, InfoPath should fix up the data connections on publish (there is a checkbox you can select for this in the publishing wizard). If you have some data connections that aren't updated, you'll have to manually update them from the data connections window. There is a modify button that you can use to walk through the data connection again.

    Thank you for explaining, I'm not very good at this. Do you have the opportunity to explain the method you describe with screen shots or an example? There are some examples in the link, are they enough? https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/3646bda9-b10e-419e-8f6f-e7adfeb0e989/infopath-2010-migration-from-sharepoint-2010-to-sharepoint-2016-as-well-as-office-365?forum=SP2016

    Re: Import InfoPath 2010 forms used on SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint 2016

    Have you worked with InfoPath before? Do you have InfoPath designer installed? I would not directly modify the form's source files. I would just use the InfoPath UI. Have you published an InfoPath form before? Are these forms used in the browser or in the client (InfoPath filler)?

    I have previously worked with InfoPath on simple forms. sharepoint 2010 and sharepoint 2016 are running on separate machines. infopath 2010 installed on sharepoint 2010. infopath 2013 installed on sharepoint 2016. I have prepared and published simple infopath forms before. I'm sharing my InfoPath forms and screenshots of sharepoint with you, I'd appreciate it if you could review. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Xj3Eo9UcRx7pTVmeyAAVhxaDHuqKuhqt/view

    It would help me a lot if you could tell me what part of my instructions you don't understand. Do you know how to republish the form templates (xsn files) to the new libraries? Do you know how to update the data connections? In your screenshots, you have a lot of files (xml) in your libraries - once you have published your form templates to the new libraries, you can copy these files over and re-link them. The easiest way to do that is to open the libraries in Windows explorer. Then you can copy all the files from one library over to the new library. In your new library, there should be a re-link view - you may have to set the library to use the classic experience to find it. But it will let you re-link the moved XML to the newly published form.

    Re: Import InfoPath 2010 forms used on SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint 2016

    I don't know how to publish (xsn files) to new libraries, I didn't do it before. I don't know how to update data connections. how can you tell me the simplest way to do this? libraries are kept in which folder in Windows Explorer? Is it possible to tell me with screenshots or a video to do these operations?
