  • Hi Hema,

                Welcome to MSDN forum and I am very glad to help with you.

    As far as I know, InfoPath file extension name is .xml, and it can be seen that InfoPath is based on xml technology. As a middle layer of data storage technology, InfoPath provides a large number of common controls, such as: Date Picker, a text box, optional sections, repeating sections, etc. And it also provides many forms of page design tools.

    I think you are right, you can choose InfoPath to automate the policy decisions forms generation process. In addition, here is the Microsoft InfoPath Developer Center for you to reference:

    http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/infopath/

    I hope it can help you and feel free to follow up.

    Best Regards,

  • Hi Hema,

              Actually, I am not experienced about InfoPath and Open XML, so, it hard for me to say which is better. You can learn them first and then compare them.

             Here is the Open XML Developer Center for you to take reference:

             Hope it can help you and feel free to follow up.
