How to publish Infopath 2003 form to Sharepoint 2007 without having the Infopath client installed on the local computer

Hello Experts,

I have created a form in Infopath 2003 and pubished the same to Sharepoint 2007 in my company.
However, the form doesnt open from Sharepoint if the client does not have a local copy of Infopath 2003 installed.

Is there anyway to fix this issue without having to upgrade to Infopath 2007?

Please advise.

You need to change the document library settings. Choose Display as a Web page on the library's Advanced Settings page.

do as B_bebasis suggested in sharepoint.

Also in infopath you need to go to Form Options > compatibility > Show form in browser
then check the browser options in web browser under form options

this will only work in MOSS 2007 enterprise edition.

The form designer needs to have InfoPath 2007 to create browser compatible forms and MOSS 2007 to host them. IP 2003 does not work.

Then the clients do not have to have InfoPath since they can use the forms in the browser hosted by MOSS.

B_debasis and Jimes82 - I do not see Form Options -> Compatibility in my Infopath 2003SP3 client at all.
Do i really need Infopath 2007 as clayfox mentioned and there is no workaround at all?

Yes i forgot to mention that as well, but clayfox is correct... Browser compatibility is only on Infopath 07
