I have a requirement to create an infopath form which is simple enough to create and is pretty much done.
It however has a secret which they didn't really mention in the doc or their "simple workflow requriemetns" and this is that it goes some where for costing.
The idea of this is to automate a paper trail so I am thinking that this costing which is to be attached to this document should not simple be an upload onto the form but part of the workflow tasks.
My questions are.
If I have the follow workflow requiremetns.
1. User fill in form and submit
2. workflow then starts
3. (cost part next?) one group of people liase with accountants to ensure funding is posible and attach to form. two option I see here.
The costing part is part of the workflow but if I do this I need the field to be read only for everyone except for a couple of groups is it possible in infopath to do this?
The costing is in a different library which the workflow create the new file this has it own workflow with a task to complete it and when completed workflow marks a field as complete before the main workflow will move on to next steps.
I would need to link the two forms together preferably in both directions would be nice what the best way to do this?

Hello, I believe there is an issue with a current document link in SharePoint. When we click on the main Document Folder (labelled - Project Descriptions) we are typically provided access to a large list of subfolders and documents. For some
reason now, when we click on the main Document folder, a dialogue box opens up prompting me with the following language:
Do you want to open or save this file?
If you click "open", you're redirected to a blank page in SharePoint. Our documents are no where to be found. Please help.

I have an interesting issue while deploying a VSTO enabled form today. For
some odd reason while performing stsadm -o verifyformtemplate -filename
foobar.xsn, it returned a "FatalError : The form cannot be converted because
it was designed for a later version of InfoPath Forms Services.".
Has anyone else tried deploying a InfoPath 2010 form with managed code in a
MOSS environment?? I'd hate to go back to InfoPath 2007, I love the new
Having a strange issue with one of our customers. They are using a drive letter mapping to a SP Document library (WSS 3.0). For some reason out of the blue now, if they create a new word document, save it up to WSS (via drive mapping) and then try and open
it again, it gives a "Could not open" error. Trying to open the file via the web interface gives a "No connectivity with the server. The file http://... can't be opened because the server couldn't be contacted". Strange issue is, we can open the files
just fine with Wordpad. So something between Office & Sharepoint appears to be causing the issue. Stranger even still, if we save using word to save an office document to SharePoint via the web interface instead of the drive mapping, it appears to
fix the issue. From there on we can save and open files directly to\from the drive letter mapping!
So the issue can be temporarily resolved that way, but it still re-occurs every once in a while, and It would be nice to know what is causing the issue and how/if we can permanently prevent it.
Screenshots of errors when opening the docs from drive mapping and web interface:
We have a user that has created an editing template using infopath. Part of the process involves uploading documents to the form template. It is part of an editing process they've created. The question is since the document is attached to the form what
happens when SharePoint goes offline? I know you can sync the form to Outlook but if you work offline and then sync it back to SharePoint, will the changes you made to the document be recorded or just to the form itself? I hope I've explained this clearly.
I should mention were using MOSS 3.0 SharePoint 2007 server.
We are developing a silverlight application and wondering if infopath documents can be enbedded in silverlight. Please advice.
I have an annoucement list, which has been customized in infopath ("customize Form" button). Nothing funcy, just adding some comments.
The form opens , and I attach a file, over 27 MB (22 MB works with no problem).
I press save (wait for 20 secs) and and error occurs:"Error processing the form"
I press retry, a popup window appears saying: "sending data to the server" and then an error window appears:
A Microsoft SharePoint Server State Service error occurred while processing your request. For more information, contact your server farm administrator.
Click Start Over to load a new copy of the form. If this error persists, contact the support team for the Web site.

VS2008 and InfoPath 2007 in Workflow
I am having an issue on an Infopath form that is for a workflow task. When I add a File Attachement to a File Attachment Control this works fine. However, when I submit the form and then go back into it I see the attachment is not there.
Basicallly on a submit it is not embedding the file.
The field is called "CreativeArtwork". This Infopath field has no default, but is of type (base64). Is it getting overwritten by internal default?
Can anyone help?

Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010 include a new set of components called Application Services. These put a rich set of tools in a developer's bag for Office automation. We'll show you how to use Office OpenXML, Word Automation Services and SharePoint to build a simple application that merges separate status reports into a single document.

This article describes how to generate documents that contain data stored in SharePoint lists. The example demonstrates how OpenXML content controls can be defined to capture list data in a Word document and how LINQ to XML can be used to query the lists. The documents are generated from a SharePoint Web Part.

Flow documents offer enormous flexibility in arranging text layout and pagination, but they don't support data binding, so you can't dynamically change content. Here we build a component to solve that problem.
