InfoPath – Getting around the 5MB form limit

InfoPath has a limit on the file size when publishing forms to a document library. In some cases the combined size of the files embedded into the form can exceed this limit. To work-around this issue, consider creating an additional document library that allows the user to add documents with a link to the form. Then, in your form create a Data Connection to this table to show the attachments and allow the user to click on the hyperlink to the attachment. If you are feeling adventurous, add another link that connects directly to the SharePoint List in Add Mode, and pre-populates the key fields in the attachment List item using an Info-Path Web Part (See the link InfoPath – Prepopulate a list item from a URL)
