Understanding how to create and design custom InfoPath 2007 templates, the goal here is to reuse or extract (working) sections of existing templates without breaking their binding functionality to move to a new or different InfoPath form?  I have searched Micorosoft websites but with little success on addressing this issue outside of custom coding. thoughts welcome

The only way I know of is working with the manifest directly.

If you extract the source files.  Open the Manifest.xsf in Notepad.

Then you can find and replace and copy and paste without the designer pushing its will or best practices on it.

You still have to be careful that everything is correct but you can then preserve the bindings without the automatic loss when they are copied or the backend source is changed.
