Hi @Kandaswamyg ,

Sorry I missed your post - if you tag me in your response it is much easier to see in my feed.

Unfortunately, you are not the first person to ask this question. Getting your data to CDS could probably be automated (after creating the Entities) with Power Automate to some extent or even a ForAll loop in Power Apps, but there is no InfoPath conversion tool as such. However here is a video that may be useful to you.

Hi WarrenBelz,

 

As Krishna mentioned, I was looking for any road blocks or limitations in this. 

Also I would like to know, Is there any tool available in the market to migrate the data from SharePoint On-Prem to Power Apps/CDS?
