InfoPath 2007 - Publishing Creates multiple columns on SharePoint Form Library (GUIDS apparently are

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 15, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 
I have been working this issue for 2 days now.  This has happened to me in the past and I was able to work through it.  It doesn't appear that this time I am going to be so lucky. Issue Description: When publishing an InfoPath form a new column is created that has the same name as the correct one, but a new GUID is created. Troubleshooting steps: I have read this article: http://www.delphi-ts.com/blogs/lozzi/post/2009/06/03/Duplicate-site-columns-in-MOSS-from-InfoPath-Forms.aspx   This was the solution the last time I had this problem.  However, no matter what I do, it is not working now.  I have a column named User Name which is the username of the person that submitted the InfoPath form for use with my Visual Studio workflow.  When the workflow kicks off, it reads this column and attempts to get the value.  The value is blank because a new column with the name User Name now exists and that is where the value is stored.  I attempted to fix it by remapping the GUIDs as described in the article.  I also reverted the code to a previous version from TFS.  None of these worked.   I now have 3 columns called User Name and I can remap the GUID to the second column and third column.  But when I try to map it to the first column (the one I need) it doesn't work. The first column that is circled is the correct column.

Newly promoted column in infopath not displaying value in sharepoint 2007 form library

  

Hi All,

I have a form library, which is allready having nearly 200 forms. Now i need to promote some more infopath 2007 form fields to sharepoint 2007 list column. But after promoting and re-publishing the infopath template, newly promoted columns does not show any value. Please suggest me how to fix this problem?

Work around :- If i just open a form and save it back, newly promoted field(Sharepoint library column) is displaying correct value. But this would be a tedious task if it has to be done for nearly 200 forms.

Infopath Brower enabled form not visible in the sharepoint library after being submitted

  
Hi, I have created a infopath browser enabled form to submit to a sharepoint form library, however the submitted forms are not visible in the sharepoint link structure.   I'm able to see them in the SPD structure.  I'm using infopath 2007 and MOSS. I actually created a SPD workflow which retrieves specific values from the submitted form and saves it to another sharepoint list. This works fine even if the forms are not visible. Appreciate any help. Thanks

InfoPath Form not showing up in Sharepoint Form Library

  
I have set up a template form setup that users can fill out and then by pressing the submit button sends an email.My current issue is, when I publish the form to sharepoint, I don't see it, I have sharepoint set to view all documents and I still don't see it.  I can get to the form by clicking the "view my form in browser" pop up after I'm done publishing it.  I would like the users to just be able to click on a link in the library, but I can't find where it was published.Any insight on this would be great thanks.

Updating an InfoPath Form Library Template breaks preexisting SharePoint List Views

  
When updating an InfoPath template (e.g. adding a new field), any views I have created on the library lose their filters and sorting, as if the columns on which they were built no longer exist.  Has anyone else encountered this and, if so, is there a solution? V/r Noelle

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/

Infopath 2007: Cant we fetch data from a list or form library without using a Query to the data conn

  
I am trying to fetch data from a form library and a list (both secondary data sources). But cant do it without using a rule (Query using a data connection). However when I use the 'Refresh' control on the form it brings the value. I find it quite weird, as the connections are made properly and logically speaking all the data connetions should fetch dynamic data once the form opens or loads. Cant we do it without using a (data query) rule? Update: I am using a web based infopath forms, while using the same form on client its working fine. Why is that?

Email InfoPath form located on secure SharePoint 2007 using Outlook

  

I have a 2007 InfoPath form that is stored on a secure 2007 SharePoint team site that needs to be emailed to outside users for feedback on a certain subject. The form is opened by a team member (with site access), sent to the reviewer to provide feedback (via Outlook 2007), and then submitted back to the team member for review and submission to the SharePoint site.

The issue I've encountered is that the outside user who receives the form in Outlook as the body of the email cannot enter information in any fields in order to provide feedback. The option to "include the form template with the email" is blocked in my InfoPath form options (I believe because the form location is a secured site). I have tried adding the users to permissions in just the library where the form is published to, but they still cannot enter any information.

Can someone provide me with a solution for this problem?

How to Get and Set Version of InfoPath Form in SharePoint Form Library from Infopath Codebehind

  

Hi,

Want to know how to Get or Set the Version for the new/existing InfoPath Form 2007 in the SharePoint Form Library.  Actually I am submitting InfoPath Form to SharePoint Form Libraries on the fly.  Want to set the Version of new form to 1.0 and then increment by 0.1 every time when the user edits and save the form back to the form library.  When the existing form is opened for editing, I need to get the current latest version of that form in the form library.

It is very urgent.  Any help or pointers for this requirement would be appreciated.  If anyone of you have handled such scenario in your projects, please share the code snippet with me.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Problem opening an attachment from Infopath 2007 form in SharePoint 2010

  
I have an InfoPath 2007 form that is opened as a web based form in SharePoint 2010 that has an attachment control.  In Windows XP with IE 7 when you double click the attachment there is a warning message presented and after you click OK you get a prompt that asks if you want to open or save the file or cancel.  In Windows 7 with IE 8 when you double click the attachment there is a warning message presented and after you click OK you get a prompt that asks if you want to save the file or cancel, no open option.  I already set the SharePoint browser permission to permissive for the site and it doesn't help.  How can I get this to work in Windows 7 and IE 8?

SharePoint Designer workflow task - problem with multiple users selector in InfoPath form

  

Gentlemen,

 

I have got an issue with InfoPath form generated for my SharePoint Designer workflow task. There is a multiple users selector that requests users from a task assignee. The problem is that only the first user entered got saved.

 

I am using SharePoint 2010 Standard Server (release). Steps to reproduce are the following:

publishing an InfoPath form to SharePoint 2010

  

I have an InfoPath 2010 form that needs to have a repeating table so when I developed it as a SharePoint Form Library.  When i attempt to publish the form to a SharePoint 2010 site i constantly get an error stating "The following URL is not valid".

I know that the URL is correct and I do have different forms on the site.  The main difference between this form and others on the site are the repeating tables, and the other forms were created as SharePoint Lists.  

Any ideas?
