Hi. I am attempting to move an InfoPath form that was created from a SharePoint list into a separate form library (separate from the SharePoint list).  I do not want users that complete the InfoPath form to have access to the SharePoint list that it populates.  I do not seem to have an option to publish it to a new location from within InfoPath Designer. It only gives me the option to publish back to the original list. Thanks for your help.

Under the file tab go down to the publish button (I suspect you are using quick publish which always publishes to the current location) the publish wizard will allow you to select a new location

Publish section I mean not button. Users will still need contribute permissions for the destination folder

Under publish, the only option is to the default list and to export.  Contribute permissions make sense though.

Ahhh - did you "customise form" from within the list and have it open in Infopath?
If so, then to my knowledge you only have the option to publish back to it's original location as that is the form associated with that *list*

You can create a form for a *library* and then have that published to any existing/new library

A better approach I have used with HR or other types of forms, is to have either SharePoint workflow or another process move the data to a secure location.

so 1 list in the HR site with limited permissions, which is the final destination
a 2nd list in a public location with the needed permissions

form starts on public list and is submitted.
on submit or a new record, the record is copied to the secure list and deleted from the public

so the data is only on the public for a brief moment

the backend workflow uses an admin account that has the permissions needed to write to the private list
