Problem with permissions in submitting infopath form

I have a sharepoint form setup to submit records to a sharepoint custom list. (I use an xml file with a web service to do it.)

I have implemented this same type of setup elsewhere on my intranet (Sharepoint 2007) but this time i'm having problems.

I have users set to Full Control permissions on the site and the list, but when they submit the form via infopath, the data does not end up in Sharepoint. Only when I make them a site collection administrator does it work.

Are there any thoughts on what might be going wrong here? :( Infopath doesn't generate any error popups or anything so it looks like it's working to the user (but it's not...)

Are you using Data Connections? Are they all published and in an approved state?

I am using data connections in the infopath form. But I have never "published" or "approved" any data connections within infopath and they have always worked. Not sure what you're referring to?

Go to your Data Connection Library, and use the drop-down menu on the UDCX file, and see if you see the option to either check in or approve the file.

I'm guessing you have approval requirements turned on, but don't realize it. That's why the users need to be Site Collection Admins.

Turns out I didn't have any permissions showing for a particular list that the form was pulling data from
