Cannot fill-in Word 2003 fill-in form accessed through SharePoint (WSS 3.0) after installing Word 20

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 09, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 
We are experiencing problems when opening a fill-in form designed in Word 2003 accessed through a SharePoint (WSS 3.0) document library after installing Word 2007.  Prior to upgrade to Word 2007, the user could open the file in read-only mode, fill-in the fields and without saving the data, print or email the completed form.  Now, in order to be able to fill-in the fields, it appears they must have SharePoint permissions set to "contribute" so that they can "Edit" the file, fill-in the fields, print or email, and then close the file and specifically indicate they do not want to save changes.  Needing advice as this changes our security in SharePoint and adds extra steps for users.  Thanks.

Import Word docs with Metadata into SharePoint 2010 from Windows Server 2003

  

I need to import 700 Word docs (2003 & 2007) from Windows Server 2003 into a SharePoint Server 2010 library.  I only have a test server to work with right now and want to do as much pre-work before we launch the actual server. 

My goal: When we launch the shpt server, import all docs into a library so that columns propagate with metatdata automatically.

I'm not sure what the best approach is...

Can I can open each doc and add custom properties (maybe with InfoPath) to import as metadata, then import managed metadata through the term store tool and have it associate with the manually entered custom properties? I don't fully understand managed metadata, which might pose a problem.  And before I start importing terms, I thought I should find out if I've completely misunderstood how taxonomies work.

Or I have an excel spreadsheet with info about each doc in columns that can act as metadata. I could upload this as a list then associate each doc with the list.  But it seems wiser to enter the metadata into the documets.  

Is it possible to update my docs in advance so that uploading goes smoothly? I have help now for data entry that I won't have later.

I have no resources to spend on tools, and have to figure out and build this&nbs

Opening Word 2003 document from sharepoint site in word 2010.

  

When using sharepoint services with word 2003 on an XP machine, everything works fine. We bought some new computers where we now have windows 7 and office 2007/2010. These work perfect too. Even the 64-bit computers.

We are very happy with the new office version, so we decided to upgrade the entire company. As a test, we upgraded 1 PC. But this is not working. So we upgraded office, later we reinstalled it. But nothing helps. This is the problem: I surf to the document click it to open it, and then Word hangs. "contacting server". This is not always the case, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. This even with the same document.

We would really like to upgrade to office 2010 entirely. But we're not going to buy licences we cannot use. Anybody got a solution?


Creating a fill in form and also a help desk ticket form in Sharepoint.

  

I want to do two things in Sharepoint. First to create a fill in form where users would be able to fill in information & submit the form. It will get routed to me. Secondly, I want to create a help desk kind of thing in Sharepoint.

I know infopath could be used for creation of forms , but I don't have access to infopath. If anyone could send me a link to download it free, that would be great. otherwise, I would be interested in knowing other ways to accomplish same results.

Thanks in advance

Word 2003 vs Word 2007 with Sharepoint 2007

  

My scenario is:

Have SharePoint 2007 website through which we access our Word documents and currently use Word 2003 to open them.  Users who edit documents use check-in and check-out and publish new versions as and when needed.  Users who just use the documents then access these as read only, but are able to make amendments to add names and addresses etc.

We're currently testing Office 2007 as the integration capabilities with SharePoint 2007 are much better, but we have found that users who access the documents as read only can no longer make ANY edits.  The only way they can is to check out the document, which they are not allowed to do as they are not editors.  So basically we have documents created that users cannot use...

In addition, the Word documents we have stored on the SharePoint site have the DLCPolicyLabelValue field in the footer that links to the item properties in the Sharepoint list to provide the barcode value and current version number.  Whilst ok in Word 2003, Word 2007 doesn't allow these fields to update.


Publishing document updated by Word 2010 in Sharepoint 2003

  

Hi everyone.

We are using SharePoint Portal Server 2003, and everything worked fine until we started using Office 2010. When document is placed in document workspace and updated by Office 2003 or 2007, it is possible to use "publish to source location" to publish this document from document workspace. But when this same document is udated by Office 2010, publishing to source location is no more available.

I went thru menu's javascript source code and page source code (document workspace) and find out, that after updating by Office 2010 a SourceURL atribut is missing. It looks like the office 2010 makes this file lost track of its own source.

Can anybody help? Thanks a lot

How to restrict access to a SharePoint Document Form Library while allowing users to fill out and su

  

We have created a MS InfoPath form with it's corrsponding SharePoint Document Form Library, but would like to restrict the access to the SharePoint Document Form Library. After the user completes and submits the forms then he/she should not be able to go into the SharePoint Document Form Library and view the form. In order to allow users to fill out and submit an InfoPath form, Contributor level access is required to be granted. But Contributor level access allows them to view not only the form he/she has created but everyone else's which is not acceptable in this particluar situation. The solution we've come up with is to grant Contributor access to the SharePoint Document Form Library when the Submit button is pressed using stsadm grant the user Contibutor role. Then remove the access once the submission is completed.

We would be interested to know if there is a better process to accomplish this task. And, of equal importance, the coding that is required to execute this task.

How to fill out a form as another user , while using profiles database

  

I have created an InfoPath 2007 form. It works great.. I have 5 data connections to sharepoint lists and profile's database. The form displays public data (profile database) about the user, such as name, manager.. etc.

What I would like to do is have an option on the form that says " If you are not this person , click here" , manually type the persons last name , and bring up their information.

Basically , there are some people who will have someone else fill the form out for them. But I don't want them to be giving out their username and password to the system.

I want the ability to fill out a form as another user without logging off sharepoint.
