Digital Signing of Forms (not template) changes status of form

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 17, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I have a nice InfoPath Travel Request form that requires sequential digital signing.  I have the sections holding the signatures display contingent upon the prior signed section having a value of being signed.  All is working well. Now, once I publish the form to a SharePoint Form Library, I'd like to have a column showing a status such as 'Supervisor Approved', then on to 'Manager Approved' to finally 'Fully Approved'. I thought that I could create a Rule that when a section's digital signature value changes to 'signed', it could update a 'Status' field's text value.  However, when in practice, if digital signature is applied, there is no method to update the 'Status' field.  Digital signatures apply to Sections and sections don't have Rules capabilities. Other than writing code, is there a method that I can use that would change a 'Status' field value based on a section being digitaly signed?Greg Appelt

Using Upload Form Template in SP 2010 to upload IP Forms 2007 xsn


We are moving from MOSS 2007 to SP 2010. In Central Admin, I have gone to the Infopath Forms Services --> Manage form templages page and trying to upload a .xsn file. This infopath form was built in IP 2007. The error is

very vague: This operation is not allowed at this time.

The account I am logged in as is a Farm Administrator.

In the ULS logs, these errors appear...

Can't relink infopath forms to a new template in the form library


I have an InfoPath form that has been working fine.  I made a change to the form, turned off printing and republished the form.  I then relinked all forms, or thought I did.  The new forms created work fine.  Most of the ones at the beginning are relinked and working fine.  There are about 228 forms in the middle that won't relink and you can't update them.  If I try to update the properties, it has an invalid link.  If I edit the form and submit it back with the changes, I get the following error message box, but only if I actualy make a change on the form and try to save it.


InfoPath cannot save the form
The specified location is not valid, not available, or you do not have the correct permissions
Check the spelling of the file name and verigy that the location is correct, or contact the server administrator.

Is there another way that I can force the relink?  There is also a field that does no populate in the properties.  It won't let me add that metadata.  I have a designer workflow that takes the ID created for a document/item and copies it to the field.  This is then used to create the unique name of the document.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Can you hide the "Form Template Conflict" message?


We have 100s of Infopath 2003 forms published on our Sharepoint site (MOSS 2007).  These forms are updated constantly.  The problem we have is that anytime we change the form's design (ex. change wording on the form), the user will get the "Form Template Conflict" message when they click on the form.  This is very confusing to them, and although we've asked them to click on "Replace form", they still get confused.

This message is very confusing to anyone, not just a user.  We would like to suppress this message so that every single time we update a form, they don't have to see this.  I'm not sure why it even saves a copy locally on their machines, anyway.  The fact is that in 100% of all cases, they will need to replace the form on their computer.  Renaming the forms every time we edit them is not an option - there are too many and links would all be broken. 

Can anyone tell us how to "hide" or "suppress" this error for our users?  Or design a form on the back-end that won't show this?  Could possibly changing security settings prevent this?  Any suggestions would be appreciated on how to prevent this message from popping every time we update a form.

Infopath form and forms library error

I've created an InfoPath 2010 form and associated it with a forms library on a SharePoint site. When I go to the library and choose "Add document" the form opens up to be filled out by the user. When the form is filled out, and the user tries to submit, they get an error saying that I need to configure SharePoint to allow cross-domain data access for user form templates that use connection settings in a data connection file and store a UDC file in the same site collection as the form. So I've enabled cross-domain data access and I've already created a Data Collection Library for Forms in the Site that is approved. What am I missing?  Why am I still getting the error?

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

namespace of fields problem when creating form template from xml?

I created a form template from a predefined xml, where I do not have any namespace. Later I added more fields. The output xml of the form is for the fields from the xml they have not prefix, for those added later, they have prefix my. I already have them all done. How can I make them consistent to have prefix my? Is there any options in InfoPath to turn on or off the prefix my?   thanks,

Delphi Win32 MDI Parent with C# Windows Forms child form

I have created an assembly containing a form that i want created as a MDI child form in a Delphi Win32 application's MDI parent control. I can create the .NET form fine from my Delphi code. I can even use the Delphi window handle to let my .NET form be a child in the Win32 application by using the SetParent API. However minimizing the child form makes it disappear (instead of the regular minimize action for MDI children), and it also doesn't cause the MDI container to get scroll bars when you drag the child form under the edge of the MDI container. I have the feeling that the child form is not yet correctly aware that it is a MDI child. For instance, its MdiParent property is null. And i read somewhere that i might need to call some more Win32 API"s to hook everything up correctly. I can't, however, for the life of me not find which ones to call, and where to do it. Is there anyone here that is well versed in hooking up managed Windows Forms with native Win32 applications that can lend a helping hand?

Cannot publish InfoPath 2010 form template to SharePoint Server 2010 RC

Hi all, I am MSFT in Vietnam. I created a SharePoint list using InfoPath 2010 RTM 64bit. After publishing it to SharePoint 2010 RC, I see an error message:  Click on button "Show Details" the message is The list schema does not match the schema of this form. Refresh the data source and publish the form again. When I create new item based on published SharePoint list, I can see plain form not browser enabled InfoPath form.

Form Template Conflict - Same Form ID When Copying Template

Hi,I have an InfoPath Form that I have uploaded successfully to SharePoint using the Form Services.I now want to make a copy of my InfoPath Form Template so I can create a similar Template (just want to make a few adjustments) then upload that one, so will have two that serve similar but different purposes.The problem is that if I just make a copy (copy and paste) the Template on my computer, I can't open it without getting the following message:   Form Template Conflict The form template you are opening has the same ID as a template already on your computer.   Then it goes on to say I can either keep my existing one, or replace it with this one????????   All I want to do is make a copy so I don't have to design essentially the same Form.   Somehow I need to  create a new template (from the existing one) but have a different Form ID.   Can anyone please help with this (should be simple) issue.   Kind Regards,   Grant.

InfoPath Form Forms Services and Identity?

We have an InfoPath form running under InfoPath forms services that opens a data connection to a SQL database to invoke a stored procedure using Integrated Security.  It connects as NT AUTHORITY\ANNONYMOUS  LOGIN and is denied access. The following query failed: CPI_RPI_Table (User: LITWARE\smith, Form Name: CPI-RPI-Index-Published, IP: , Request: https://www.litware.com/_layouts/Postback.FormServer.aspx, Form ID: urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:infopath:CPI-RPI-Index-Published:-myXSD-2010-09-14T19-44-07, Type: DataAdapterException, Exception Message: The form cannot connect to the data source. Login failed for user 'NT AUTHORITY\ANONYMOUS LOGON'.) When we run it in the InfoPath client, it connects with the users credentials. Can we have the form default to another identity, that of the SharePoint Service acount? Thanks, Nikos
