Consume MOSS 2007 list to 2010

Hi all, My end goal is to display a list in SharePoint2010 .... but the list actually originates from SharePoint2007. I thought it could be as easy as creating BCS to the SP2007 list web service (/_vti_bin/Lists.asmx) but BCS has issues with the complex data types and based on other threads this isn't possible.  We've been able to create a data source to the web service and display the list contents on a custom aspx page, but this isn't exactly our end goal. Is there a best practice for this type of thing?  Or do we have to go down the path of creating a custom web part while consuming the web service directly or the SOAP data source we've created?+ Note: Migration is not an option at this point... integration is our current path. Any help is appreciated. Thanks, Eric

List privileges temporarily disappear after installation auf MOSS 2007 August 2010 CU


Hi all,

after installing the August 2010 CU for our English Sharepoint 2007 farm I randomly have the list menu buttons "New" and "Settings" missing.

The farm consists of two frontend servers, one backend (all three W2003R2 x32) and a SQL 2005 x64 database, also running Windows server 2003.

This appears for all users, including the site administration account. Strangely, after about 10 .. 20 minutes, the buttons re-appear and everything works fine.

Since I installed the August 2010 CU two weeks ago, I have had three occurrences of this phenomenon. Sharepoint Event Logs show no error at the time. IISReset did not fix the issue, it just "went away" after a short time.

Did anybody else experience this issue? Does anybody have a hint where to look for errors here or what might cause this?


Many greetings,



Infopath 2010 submitting to MOSS 2007

Hi all,

I have a quick query regarding Infopath 2010 submitting data into a MOSS 2007 form library.  This is the first time I'm trying to build a form using 2010.  Normally in 2007, when cerating the submission I'd query the form library to get the ID & then use @max(ID)+1 to get the next available number which I'd then use in the name of the form, however, in Infopath 2010, you don't appear to be able to use the ID field in formula as it doesn't appear in the list of avaialble fields in the data connection.  I considered using a calculated field which equals the ID, but calculated fields aren't usable either.

Has anyone else seen this or is it just my installation? has anyone worked around this?

Thanks in advance.


Error upgrading MOSS 2007 publishing site to 2010 - Exception: Column 'PublishingStartDate' does n


We are in the process of testing a database attach upgrade from MOSS 2007 to SharePoint Server 2010. We are running into an issue when we attach the database with the main portal site collection which has the publishing features enabled. In the upgrade error log, we are receiving the following errors:

Using Microsoft Infopath 2010 with MOSS 2007


I currently have InfoPath 2007 forms uploaded on the MOSS 2007 server in which we can fill out and will submit to/query from a database. I was curious if I decided to upgrade to Microsoft InfoPath 2010 would it be a smooth transition or would I need to change anything since I'm not upgrading MOSS 2007. Thanks in advance!

Can you embed an Infopath 2007 form with MOSS 2007 in an Outlook 2010 email?



MOSS 2007, Infopath 2007 and Outlook 2010

Is it possible to embed the Infopath Form in the email itself.

I read this link (point 1) http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/infopath/microsoft-office-infopath-2007-top-10-benefits-HA010165024.aspx, but I have been unable to do this?

Do you have to have Infopath 2007 on the client machine to be able to do this?

Exporting MOSS 2007 List to Excel 2007

When doing the export, the columns "Item Type" and "Path" are automatically displayed in the sheet.  Is there anyway to suppress these fields from exporting automatically?  I'm sure this has already been asked before, but I couldn't find anything after much searching (perhaps I'm using the wrong keywords).  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Submitting InfoPath data to a SharePoint 2007 List

Clayton, i sure hope you get this.  I would like to let the form get published to the form library and then workflow can create the new list item with all the required metadata mapped.  if data is updated i would like for the list item data to update as well.  currently i have an infopath form that is web-enabled.  i several views based on a status field as which view to open to.  this form have drop-down fields linked to list already on the sharepoint site.  i have tried using the "Submitting Data from Infopath 2007 to Sharepoint List" and it works as designed but unfortunately i cant customize the fields.  i need a dynamic user friendly form with drop downs etc.  any suggestions?

How to get a list of installed MOSS 2007 updates?

We have several problems with our MOSS 2007 installation and operation and since we found out that two identical sharepoint servers (production and test) that had same updates applied have different Search_DB databases (they have same name function with different number of parameters, for ex.) we have a single idea of what can be the cause: Somehow, windows update or other quirk, an update or hotfix got applied to one of the servers.  Strange thing is, noone of our employees seems to know, neither google seems to know, how do we exactly get a list of installed updates on the MOSS 2007 installation.   So, simple question: HOW? How do we get a complete list of changes (hotfixes, servicepacks, patches) done to an installation of MOSS?

How to prevent automatic update from sharepoint list on Infopath 2007 form

Hi there, I've got an Infopath 2007 form on MOSS 2007. I have a custom list in sharepoint and the infopath form has a data connection to that list to receive data. Is there any way to prevent automatic update on the values in the form that is received from the list. I'd like the new form to have updated info received from the list. However, the old/existing forms that were created should have the data that were available at the time when the form was created. Let me know if this is not clear and I'll try to explain more. Thanks,Pman http://www.pmansLab.com/

Best Way to Convert MOSS 2007 Site Templates to SharePoint 2010 Templates

Ok, I just treid to do something that I didn't really think would work, but now that I've seen it fail, I get to ask the question. Is there a best practice on converting site templates built for MOSS 2007 to SharePoint 2010. We have several projects that used the Visual Studio Extensions (v1.3) and the SharePoint Solution Generator to build custom site templates and the .wsp packages. I can add and deploy the solution packages using the STSADM tool, but when I try to create a sub-site based on that template, I get an Object Not Set to an Oject Reference Error. In case anyone is wondering, it works fine in MOSS 2007. I have not tried Visual Studio 2010 yet (it's downloading in the background). I'm just wondering if anyone has run into this and what they did to fix it. TIA, John.
