Editing PDF documents "native" like Office documents

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Hi there,

my system is SharePoint 2010 with FQDN in local intranet internet zone.

I have a document library with some PDF files stored in it and I want to edit them. I take my Laptop with Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro Extended and open one of the stored PDFs and get the message box how I would like to open the file, read only or checkout and edit. I can edit, save back to server and check in and all is working fine.

Now I take another computer, not with Acrobat Pro installed but Nuance PDF Professional 6, there only the IE box for open or save pops up.

Is this an Adobe implementation for SharePoint or can I configure the same "native" behavior on SharePoint side for the Nuance PDF Pro?

Best regards

Editing office documents online in ASP.NET

Hello, We are developing a web application using ASP.NET where each registered user has an account with its data and its own documents associated. That documents are stored in the server in different folders and when a user accesses to the web app, he can see a document list where he can download all the documents he owns.  Actually, we want to add a new functionality to our application: edit documents online. That documents could be, for example, Microsoft Word, Excel, Access, etc. documents. We want to know if you have any plugin or similar that allows us to implement such thing with acceptable results.  More specifically, we want the user to select a document from the list (for example, a .doc) and, when he presses a button "Edit", he should be  redirected to another page where he can write or edit anything he wants. When he press the "Save" button, the document should be saved in the server overriding the old document. We know the user can actually download the document, modify it locally  using Microsoft Word and then upload the document again, but we want to allow the user to edit his documents in an easier way. So, even if this process has to be done, it has to be transparent to the user. Our question is if there is something implemented that we can buy and use in our web application to get this new functionality working as soo

Toolbox: Generate Office Documents, Monitor Event Logs, and More


Most data-driven Web sites are used as interfaces to collect, process, and summarize information. Reports that summarize the data can be presented to the user in a variety of formats-the most common way is to display the report directly in a Web page.

Office XP: New Toolkit Lets You Share Information Between Office Documents and Web Services


The Office XP Web Services Toolkit makes it possible to build applications that gather information and trigger transactions through various Web Services. The toolkit allows you to easily discover Web Services remotely. It also includes the Web Service Reference Tool, which lets you call a Web Service from inside an Office application. This article shows how toolkit-generated code can be used to access simple, as well as complex, Web Services.The author steps through the auto-generated code to explain the classes that collect parameters, the schema to format the request/response, and the actual operations of the Web Service.

Can I search Office Documents (Excel, Word etc) in WSS 3.0 without having to install MS Office?



Does WSS 3.0 come with the filters for searching MS Office Documents or do you have to have MS Office installed on WSS 3.0 Server?



Documents becoming "locked for editing" by self, when no other edits are happening


On our SharePoint 2007 SP1 farm, intermittently, when a user opens a Microsoft Office document (usually Excel) for editing by single-clicking its name in IE, the following error dialog mysteriously occurs when Office opens:

File in Use
myfile.xlsm is locked for editing
by 'domainname\yourname'
Open 'Read-Only' or click 'Notify' to open read-only and receive notification
when the document is no longer in use.

The problem is, nobody else is editing this document, and the identified user ('domainname\yourname') is the name of the current user (the person opening the document right now)!

This is not "user error", e.g., the same user editing the file from two different computers, or the file being checked out. This is a real, intermittent problem. If the same user opens the same file again 1 minute later, the problem might be gone, even though nothing changed.

It's almost as if some kind of intermittent race condition is happening, where the document gets locked too early...?

We are completely stumped. Any ideas?

- SharePoint servers (1 front-end, 1 query, 1 indexing) are all Windows 2003 Server
- SQL Server 2008 on database server

Working with In-Memory Open XML Documents (Office Talk Column)

Working with Open XML Documents without loading from a file or saving to a file is important when you build applications that work with Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 or Microsoft ASP.NET Web applications.

Office 2010 will not open Office 2003 Documents on SharePoint

Going directly to a document in the document view and selecting any of them will present the Read Only/Edit prompt and when clicking Read Only Word or Excel 2010 depending on the document type will open to a blank page and just sit there. If you do a search and then click on the documents that are returned in the search results, it opens as expected.

Problem about opening Office documents in SPS2003

Hi, I have a problem about opening Office documents in SPS2003. The situation is as follows: I use the same NB in building A and building B. In building A everything is fine but in building B when I open Office documents(word, excel..) in my SPS2003 portal something happened. If documents don't need authorization these documents are opened quickly but documents that need authorization when I typed id and password documents are opened very slowly(about 5-10 minutes). So what is the reasom about this problem. Any suggestion? Thanks.

Office Web Apps: Disabling the feature and just normally download Office documents?

Apparently it's not a good idea to uninstall Office Web Apps, as it leaves the farm in an inconsistent state. (http://blogs.architectingconnectedsystems.com/blogs/cjg/archive/2010/04/30/Uninstalling-Office-Web-Apps-_2D00_-Be-Careful_2100_.aspx) Is there a way to disable Office Web Apps after it's been installed and activated? I tried disabling the service in the Site Collection Managed features, but when I click on a document it still opens in the Office Web Apps instead of downloading it to my computer.

Publish Office 2007 documents with metadata to SharePoint 2010?

Hi. I have SharePoint 2010 Enterprise based Intranet solution. We are publishing office 2007 documents to various document libraries there. When uploading documents normally to the document library, I can enter managed metadata to the documents which are later sorted and filtered by this metadata. But how can I enter metadata at the point where I'm publishing the document(Publish->Document Management Server)? I can get the document management pane to show my metadata -column in word as a textbox after the document is published, but the textbox is colored grey and says that I should modify that data on the server i.e. from sharepoint.
