InfoPath 2007 and Sharepoint

By Thomas__ ·

Within the division I am working they severely lack an inventory database, we did have one some time ago but as other managers started to buy in equipment the updating of the database was overlooked and is now out of date. I have been set the deadline of 8 -10 weeks. Below are listed some of the requirements

Design a database to hold inventory details for all hardware items
Produce a list of the fields to be held for each item of hardware, e.g. serial, model, make, year bought, warranty, type (desktop, laptop, disk etc.), current user, location and any others you think would be relevant.

Access to database should be web enabled or via Sharepoint, allowing anyone in the company to view, add, amend details.

Asset tags should be produced for every item of equipment.

All existing equipment should then be recorded into the system.

My idea is to do this using MS InfoPath 2007. I don?t have much experience using this software, from what I can see you can create various forms and fill out information (i.e. serial number,model, etc) and then publish it. My company has a intranet that I think was created using Sharepoint.

My question is will I run into trouble using InfoPath?
Using InfoPath am I actually ?creating a database??
Will this approach allow me to meet the criteria of ?allowing anyone in the company to view, add, amend details?.

Thank you for taking the time to read this
Any help you can provide me with would be greatly appreciated

This might answer a few of your questions... I'm still looking into just how the 'data' is stored.

What version of Sharepoint Services is running?
