BDC + Document Information Panel Javascript Error


I hope someone here can shed some light on this one...


We have a document library configured with a few content types and document information panels for those items. Also on this list we have a BDC column setup to pull client names from MS CRM. This works fine on the list itself, however, in Word 2007 - the picker does not show up in the DIP, so we cannot easily select clients without knowing the name (first issue).

Secondly, if we enter in a client name, or partial, we recieve the following error:

"There was an error in the validation code" - with the following details:
Document Information Panel cannot complete this action, because of an error
in the form's code.
The following error occurred:

Object required
FileTongue Tiedcript.js

Any help is appreciated!

Document Information Panel problem with Infopath

Hi, I have created a custom document content type that uses a specified word template deployed by a feature for a sharepoint site collection. The Content Type is defined in site collection level i have add a column also defined as a site column called "Abstract", and I added this column to my content type. Now I want to create a custom DIP using Infopath, when infopath is launched it maps all column from this content type. The problem that the "Abstract" column wich is defined as rich text and optional column is not mapped correctly Infopath show that field as a required field and can not be blank. When i added this content type to a document library and try to create a new document i have an error "Document Information Panel cannot create.. problem on the schema with Abstract field". When i try to modify the xsn file at the document library level and republish the form it works but when i do it in the site collection level it's impossible to map the field properly. Any suggestions about what might be causing this problem or how to fix it would be greatly appreciated. ABT

People Picker Render Error in Document Information Panel

I created a Content Type and added 3 columns.  One of those columns is a People Picker type column. When I open the Content Type by going to NEW -> MyContentType in a document library in SharePoint it opens in Microsoft Word but the People Picker control does not render correctly in the Document Information Panel. There is no error - just a display of a broken control. Is there a fix?

Title Column-Document Information Panel


Hi, I'm pretty new to Sharepoint 2K10; I have the following issue.

I create a content type based on the standard "Document" content type that has the Title Column required.

I've activated multiple content types in a library and I've associated a ppt template to the content type.

When I create a new document based on the above content type, the Title field in the Document Information Panel (Office 2010)doesn't appear as mandatory even if it actually is.

That's generate confusion on the user.


Custom Choice Field in Document Information Panel


Hello Everybody,

I have created a custom field from SPFieldChoice. My requirement was to customize this custom field in such a way that the dropdown can show items from a specified list.This column type I created specifically for a document library meta data.

I tried to add items to the Choices collection (within the constructor). It seems working fine as I can see the dropdown populated perfectly while uploading documents. But at the same time in the Document Information Panel of the MS WORD, it is not showing properly. What happening is, the dropdown values are not "dynamic". Even if I change the values in my list, the doropdown within the DIP stays same.

Mean time, on the document upload page, it is showing dynamically.

if I remove the column and re-add, it populates again with that instantaneous list items, but remains static afterwards on the DIP.

Error: "The document information panel was unable to load"





I have created a custom document content type that uses a specified word template for a sharepoint document library for contracts and offers, and added a few custom columns in the document library as well. The word template launches succesfully when creating a new item in the document library, but the problem arises when I add custom columns to the word template content type. When the document loads in Word, I get the following error: "The Document Information Panel was unable to load. The document will continue to open. For more information, contact your system administrator." And in details:

If you have SharePoint Document Versioning Enabled, do you also use the retention settings?

I am looking for stats on how many environments are out there using document versioning in there libraries but are perhaps not selecting the retention settings. (e.g. "Optionally limit the number of versions to retain" section) This as we all know in SharePoint is a major cause of database growth.

Is there a way to parse information in a word document and store them on a list (MOSS2007)? (Without

My current project requires me to parse through a Word document with tables that simulate a form. However Infopath isn't an available rescource for me. For example I'm to bring all information in the notes cell onto a list in sharepoint. Ultimately i'll be using a view to display that list through a webpart on a dashboard like interface on a sharepoint page. Is this possible? or is Info Path really the only way to go about this?

New / Upload / Actions / Settings / View menus on a document library are hidden

I have a Document library. On the View Page (All Documents) for the Document library, I do not see the menu bar with the "New / Upload / Actions / Settings / View" menus. It looks like one of the users with owner permissions did something to cause this behavior. No custom code exists on the page. I am not sure how this menu bar can be hidden. Can someone please clarify. I am a site collection administrator.

Windows Sharepoint Foundation 2010 - Document Library Settings with Reporting Services 2008 R2 in in

I have a client who has recently upgraded their SharePoint system to Windows Sharepoint Foundation 2010 with Reporting Services 2008 R2 in integrated mode. I have configured reporting services and am able to deploy reports to SharePoint. The client created a document library before the upgrade to WSF 2010. I need to add Report Builder 3.0 to the New Document menu and found the following article. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb326289.aspx "Allow management of content types?" is set to yes under the advanced document library settings. The problem is that when I try to "add from existing site content types" the reporting services content types are not in the list. I appreciate any help you can give me.

Custom Information Panel and content types

I am using WSS3.0 and created a CIP using infopath.  I would now like to remove the CIP and have it use the default out of box properies panel.  How do I make this change?  It appears that the CIP is associated with the content type and not the word template.  I do not see any settings in WSS3.0 to manage the panels associated with the content type.  Am I missing something?

Document Library incoming email attachments not showing To/From information


I have a document library setup to accept incoming emails as attachments.

When I send an email the document library receives it, the only problem is it doesn't show any of the header information such as who sent it, who it was sent to, who was CC'ed.  Is there any way to have this information shown?

Basically what I'm expecting to see before the body message is the From, To and CC.

Any help would be most appreciated.
