Updating InfoPath DataSources

In a recent project, I was getting frustrated with InfoPath not executing validation rules properly after I had added a new node to the Main Data Source. In effect, over 50 items would not be able to be updated because the data validation would always fail.

After some investigation, I discovered a setting in the Form Options > Versioning screen that allowed me to either automatically upgrade the form when opened or allow the user to upgrade the form. Setting this to automatic corrected my issue and allowed the business users to continue working as normal.
