Consider the following scenario.
  • You publish a Microsoft Office InfoPath template to a form library on a 64-bit SharePoint site.
  • You use the template to create a new document in the form library.
  • You edit a field in the document by using a value that contains the percent sign (%) and double-byte character set (DBCS) characters.
  • You save and then close the document.
In this scenario, the value is not promoted to the list column in the SharePoint site and you cannot edit the document in InfoPath again. Additionally, if you download the document and then open it by using Notepad, you see that the file is not an InfoPath XML file.
