InfoPath Error: The form cannot be submitted

The form cannot be submitted because it contains validation error. Errors are marked with either a red asterisk (required filed) or a red, dashed border (invalid values)

  • This is the most common error I noticed after getting customize with InfoPath feature enabled in SharePoint list
  • User has customized SharePoint list more precisely newform.aspx using InfoPath
  • And then suddenly started getting above error

  • Open the list in InfoPath via list tab > customize form
  • It will open up newform.aspx in InfoPath
  • Once it is open check mandatory fields available in that form.
  • Make sure all mandatory fields are available and deployed in newform.aspx
  • Or
  • If you don’t want them to be displayed in newform.aspx just remove mandatory option
  • Republish the form and check behavior.

Feel free to reach me in case of any issues on above steps, thanks
