InfoPath / ActiveX error when using person selector field in Word template off SharePoint document l

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 18, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I have created an out-of-the-box document library on a SharePoint 2010 site.  I left Microsoft Word Document selected as the Document Template.  I then added a person or group column and a multiple lines of text column to the document library. I then went into Library Settings --> Advanced Settings and clicked on Edit Template, opening the template in Word.  I created my template and added the two new columns to the document.  I did this using the Quick Parts --> Document Property --> [column name] feature under the Insert tab in Word.  I then saved the template back to SharePoint. Upon opening the template or creating a new document from the template, I get the following dialog box: --------------------------- Microsoft Office InfoPath --------------------------- One or more ActiveX controls could not be displayed because either: 1) Your current security settings prohibit running ActiveX controls on this page, or 2) You have blocked a publisher of one of the controls. As a result, the page might not display correctly. --------------------------- OK   --------------------------- I've searched around (I believe fairly extensively) and have not run into anyone else with the same issue.  Some have mentioned a similar error when creating a custom document information panel in InfoPath, and suggested lowered ActiveX security setti

Editing SharePoint forms in Word Document with InfoPath



I have a SharePoint library on a MOSS 2007 server with six metadata columns. When a document is saved, a workflow populates five of those columns. However, when a document is open, the user can see all six of those columns (when they only need to enter data into one). I figured out how to edit the form that appears in Microsoft word using Infopath. However, I don't know how to get rid of the fields I don't want users to see. If I delete those fields in the form, the workflow gives an error.

Does anyone know of a good resource that explains editing these forms that show up in a document using Infopath?



Error trying to upload word .doc document to Sharepoint 3.0 Exception occurred. (Exception from HRES

We have recently moved our shrepoint WSS 3.0 site to a new server running WSS3.0 on Server 2008 R2. Since the migration everything is as it was and working ok execpt we are now unable to upload word .doc files to the site. When we try to attach a .doc file we get :

Error - Exception occurred. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80020009 (DISP_E_EXCEPTION))

Other file types ie .pdf .ptxt etc can be uploaded ok but .doc fails. I have checked blocked file types in Central administration but .doc isn't listed.

Any ideas.

Thanks in advance

Compare InfoPath Form Field to Document Library list in SharePoint


I have an infopath form that has a field that matches values in a SharePoint List. In the SharePoint List I have two fields, One is email and the other is the field I am trying to match on. When the form is submitted I want to take that field from the form and compare it to the SharePoint list and return the email that is associated with that list item. Can this be done?? I appreciate any assistance. Thank you.

SharePoint Designer Workflow Activity to generate Word Document from Infopath xml




I am considering the follow implementation.

I have a workflow that user fills out to get funding and once approved (via workflow) I want to at the end of the approval generate the letter dynamically based on the values out of the infopath form.

Now I am thinking of the following solutions.

A custom activity where you point it to the word document to use and then set the fields out of the infopath that you want transfered into the word document.

Is this going to be even possible.

The type of data I have is fields from lookup, people pickers, text, curreny etc.

Is there another option maybe having a document lib with these fields as text and create new item in it and move these values into there (is that possible via designer?)


The document has to be able to be easily editable by the end user to change the template and also to be able to edit the actual document once created.


Any help would be great.

Sharepoint Checked Out Word Document Cross Reference Error on Page number Only



I see the same error as RHABALA reported in an earlier thread, after I check out my Word Document from Sharepoint into Word 2010. 

When I Control-click on any of my Cross References to Page Number, they fail with the warning prompt, they seem to be incorrectly pointing at the Sharepoint path. But when I Control-click an any Cross References to Paragraph Numbers,  they still work. I've added my Sharepoint Site to the trusted list in Internet Explorer, as recommended in that thread, but no difference, the error persists.

Grateful for your assistance.


How to read a column of a sharepoint list to a text string field of infopath form?

My infopath form used to read these email addresses from a web service and web.config file. Now i would like to get these user email addresses from a contact list in a sharepoint server. I am trying to do this without writing any codes. Here is what i have done so far: 1. Adding a new "data connection to receive data from SharePoint library or List" where i selected Email Address column of the contact list. 2. I added a new Text Field and define a new rule with "Query using a data connection" defined above. When i try to access the newly created Text field above it always return empty as if the Query attached to it did not executed at all. What did i do wrong? Is there a better way? Thank you in advance for your help.

The URL 'ao/AO Document/Admin Guideline/xxxxx.jpg' error on 2nd SharePoint server in farm

We just added a 2nd SP2007 server to mirror our site.  The original site is in China, the new site in the US.  They are connected via a permanent  site to site VPN.  We are hitting the errors when attempting to upload files to the US mirror.    Environment: US server site: OS: Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise (64 bit) APP: Windows Sharepoint Server 2007 Enterprise SP2 (64 bit) DB: Windows SQL Server 2008 Enterprise R2 (64 bit) China site: OS: Windows Server 2003 Enterprise SP2 (32 bit) APP: Windows Sharepoint Server 2007 Enterprise SP2 (32 bit) DB: Windows SQL Server 2008 Enterprise R2 (32 bit) Background: We setup two test Sharepoint farm to be syncronized with only its content database. The upload works good on SZ site. But we got the following 2 error messages randomly when uploading file to document library of SF side. Error message: 1. The URL 'ao/AO Document/Admin Guideline/xxxxx.jpg' is invalid.  It may refer to a nonexistent file or folder, or refer to a valid file or folder that is not in the current Web. 2. Cannot open file "ao/AO Document/Admin Guideline/xxxxx.jpg". -- We've tried the official hotfix, altering the schema, changing the IIS memory limit settings, and restarting the application pool. Could the issue be related to the different OSes 2008 vs 2003, or 32 vs 64bit?

SharePoint 2007 to Access 2007 - Issues grouping by "Person or Group" field type/column

We are on SharePoint 2007 and using Access 2007.  The SharePoint list contains a column called Assigned Person, column type: Person or Group, single selection, displaying only the name 1) When we Open with Access and Export a copy of the data, then create a report from that table, we do not have the option to group on Assigned Person.  2) When we Open with Access and Link to data on the SharePoint site, then create a report from that list, when we group by Assigned Person... The same person has 2 groups - there are is no other grouping or sorts on the list, and i can't locate a correlation to another field to show why they would have to collections for the same person The Person or Group column sorts "from smallest to largest" as though it is a number field. The list is a task/activity tracking system we created custom for our needs.  We want to pull a weekly report, grouped by Assigned Person, but cannot get access to work.  We do not want to resort to anything more complex, as it takes a much longer process to have reports pulled by Chrystal or one of those types of applications.  And we cannot change out the field for something like a Choice column as the list already has a very large amount of content.  Can anyone assist? Is there a setting hiding somewhere that is causing the problem?

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

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.
