    I don't understand why you are asking if you already have InfoPath. However from this link:

    there is this:

    Office system integration InfoPath works with a number of other programs and servers in the Microsoft Office system, including Microsoft Office Outlook, Microsoft Office Excel, and Microsoft Office Access. For example, you can design and fill out InfoPath forms in e-mail messages, export form data to worksheets, submit form data to a database, or query data from a SharePoint list. In addition, developers can embed InfoPath forms  without menus, toolbars, or other aspects of the user interface  into custom applications. For more information, see the How InfoPath works with other programs and technologies section later in this article.

    Hope that helps
