Cannot create new document with word 2007

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 08, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Hi!   I'm using WSS 3.0 for development on windows 7 64bit. I created a document library based on word 2003 template. Using Internet Explorer 8, when I click "New" button on the library word 2007 starts with "template.doc". Then word displays a nice error message "microsoft office word has not been installed for the current user. please run setup to install the application" and quits.   Things I tried and NOT working: - Adding sharepoint user to local admin - Giving Everyone full control to "C:\Users\All Users\Microsoft\OFFICE\DATA\OPA12.dat"  - deleting "C:\Users\All Users\Microsoft\OFFICE\DATA\OPA12.dat"   any suggestions ?

Advanced Basics: Setting Word Document Properties the Office 2007 Way


The last time I wrote this column (March 2006), I shared an application that allows you to update all the Microsoft® Word documents in a folder and its subfolders. Each time the application finds a document in the specified path, it updates the document properties to match those you specified in the application.

Converting Word Documents library to PDF document library in SharePoint Server 2007

My project requires me to create an event reciever such that when a word file is added to one library the same content pdf file should be added to other library also when a word file is updated,edited or checked in the respective pdf file in other document library should be replaced by a new pdf file with the edited word content . Can we do this in Sharepoint 2007 I have seen this can be done in Sharepoint 2010 http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff181518.aspx

Document is read-only in SharePoint, but user sees "check out" option in Office 2007 / Word / Excel

I am finding that when there is a document library in SharePoint with checkin/checkout required, if a user with read-only ("Visitor") permissions opens a document from that library, the document will open as read-only in Word, Excel, etc., but the user will see the "Server Document" bar with the message "To modify this document, you must check it out" and the "check out" button.  When the user tries to check the document out, they are asked to authenticate, and then receive the error "Cannot perform this operation.  The file has been deleted or someone else has it checked out."    How is it possible to prevent a user with read-only rights in SharePoint from seeing the "Check out" option in Word or Excel?

SharePoint 2007 Content Deployment Word Document URLs being changed


We created an application that leverages on SPExport and SPImport.

We noticed that when we export/import site, the links on the word documents pointing to same application on the target site seems to get truncated url, the url parameters (ie ?param1=a&param2=b) are truncated.

also the host header seems to get updated ie(http://my.shop.com/path1/path2 turns to like (http://hostheader/path1/path2) which is causing broken links.

need some help/advice/ suggestion.


Thanks a lot

Word 2007 properties not syncronizing with the SharePoint 2007 document library


Hi everyone.

Anyone ever had trouble with document properties that does not syncronize between a Word 2007 document and the SharePoint library where it is stored?

I have a SharePoint library, that contains two content types. When I upload a pdf file, and set the property values everything is perfect. When I create a Word document and set the Properties using the DIP, the values are stored in the Word document (I see them in the DIP, inside the word xml files and in the fileds in the document where they are displayed (using quickparts)), but not transfered to SharePoint when I save the document to the library.

If I upload a Word document to the library, I am able to choose content type and set all the property values. But when I open the document for editing, all the property values in the DIP are empty. The DIP do show the correct property fields for that content type.

After creating new libraries, content types and creating, transfering and uploading files all day, I have not been able to locate what is causing this issue.

My users have been using this library for several months and use the documents on a daily basis, and this problem just got raised. My users are feeling scared that they have to recreate their library or site (which will involve manually updating all the document properties ). I hope someone are able to

Unable to open pdf from document library MOSS 2007


When I click on a pdf document uploaded in a document library it comes up with a blank page. 

I guess it's trying to open pdf on the browser. I turned off "Display PDF in browser " option in Adobe Preferences, but it doesn't help, same issue.

I tried other browsers too, it's the same issue.

I am able to open all other pdf files local to my machine fine.

I am using IE 8 on my machine (Windows 7) and the Sharepoint server is MOSS 2007.



Re-authentication issue when openeing a MS Word Document


We have a SharePoint installation for one of our clients with external access enabled using https via ISA server. When accessing the portal internally within the intranet/domain its fine. In case of external access using https when users login to portal adn when they try to open a MS Word (or any Office) document they are prompted to to enter their username and password again. It happens for every MS Office document. We are using MOSS 2007, Office 2007. I know that the promp for re-authentication is is due to the fact that office try to open a new session but is there any work around to overcome this.

Any help will be highly appreciated.
