Caching of External Lists in Infopath Form RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We are working on a SharePoint Project that involves heavy usage of browser based InfoPath Forms. We some of the drop-down data from external database (i.e. SQL) and consume it within the InfoPath Form via BCS External List and Data Connections.


    The amount of external data retrieved is huge (i.e. about 600 records/items) that needs to get bind to InfoPath form drop-down controls. Due to huge amount of data, we would like to cache this data once and reuse the cached data to bind it to the drop down control on InfoPath form.


    We need help in implementing the caching of this external data for reuse and binding.


    Has anyone of you implemented the caching of external data to be reused to InfoPath form controls (i.e. drop-down controls).

    Let me know if any further information is required.

    Kindly help !!
