I have been given the task (lucky me!) of create infopath forms that will be used in our Sharepoint site.  So, never having used this application and not knowing a thing about it, I have been going over training sites and researching.  However, either I am missing something very fundamental or am blind, but how does the Infopath data fields get linked to the underlying data table?  That is, how do I connect the form to fields in a database?  If anyone has suggestions on reading/sites, would be appreciated.  I have all kinds of informationon how to create a form, but nothing seems to relate it so a storage place for that data!
