Linking Sharepoint List to an Infopath form

What I would like to do is link a Sharepoint (MOSS Standard 2007) list to an Infopath (2003) form so the Infopath form basically acts like the entry/edit point for the list. Is this possible, and if so what are the steps to do this? It seems like I should be able to generate the form off of the same data source?

This post should walk you through it.  I've tried the solution myself and it works well.

Dhope: so close but I just can't get the submit working and not sure what I am missing. I followed everything from the tutorial. Any Ideas?

Let me expand on that: I'm getting a generic Infopath error saying the form could not be submitted, haven't even gotten to the next step to test the Sharepoint connection.

I've attached the infopath form I created when testing it.
You'll need to rename it to CAML-Test.xsn and play about with the secondary data connections and update the text field to reflect the new list GUID, but it should get you close.

Didn't notice you were using InfoPath 2003.  I've attached the previous file as a 2003 form

Dhope - Sorry for the delay (long weekend!) - there are security settings on this form such that I don't have access to open it ("this form cannot be opened because it requires domain level security"). Any chance you could re-post without the security settings applied? Thanks!

I've set it to full trust and resaved, you should be able to open it I'd have thought.  I don't have IP2003 to test with unfortunately.
