Error Publishing Workflow - : Activation could not be completed because the InfoPath Forms Services

Recently our when trying to publish a new workflow we are getting the following error: Activation could not be completed because the InfoPath Forms Services support feature is not present. Another symptom is any existing custom workflows are not running. There are several older posts from SharePoint 2007 that indicate to disable and re-enable the SharePoint Server Enterprise Site features. I have tried that and I still get the error.  Looking through the ULS I see the following when I try and publish a workflow: 09/16/2010 15:04:29.48 w3wp.exe (0x2070) 0x0718 SharePoint Foundation General 8e2s Medium Unknown SPRequest error occurred.

Building InfoPath forms against Sharepoint 2010 Data Connection Library and Form Services...


Hi Sharepoint Experrts,

I'm trying to develop InfoPath 2010 forms that use External Lists that have been created in Sharepoint Server 2010.  I have problems when testing the forms because access is denied to the external lists.

When I try deploying the forms to the sharepoint site, I cannot upload the form template because it says I have to be a member of the local administrators group.  However, I'm running the administrator account used to install and setup sharepoint on the Windows 7 development machine I'm using.

I also tried loading the InfoPath Data Connections to a data connection library on my Sharepoint site... I can see the files when I login to the site but when I try creating a New form from a Data Connection File, I get an error message "This location does not contain any data connection files with the appropriate settings".  What ARE the appropriate settings?

I'm just really confused about this because I cannot seem to be able to build forms that use data connection files loaded onto a Sharepoint site or central server....

I appreciate any help I can get!




Thanks, KBW

InfoPath Forms Services postback crash

Howdy, I'm an InfoPath 2007 developer and have used it extensively in conjunction with SharePoint 2007 (and Forms Services). I've noticed a persistent bug in Forms Services when using postbacks -- I can't seem to find a bug report or known issue report for it. When a field is say, for instance, set to Always postback, if you click on another field / checkbox / whatever which will also perform a postback, it crashes the form & IE8. Has anyone else come across this bug? I assumed something funny would be going on as the JS behind it would be calling two postbacks at the same time, and perhaps this isn't handled well? I couldn't find any related post on this forum, just seeing if anyone else has come across it and whether a solution exists? Thanks, George

Publishing reports from Business Intelligence to Sharepoint Services 2007

We currently have sharepoint services 2007 and SQL server 2005 installed (with reporting services) and Sharepoint SQl web part on a single box named 'king-sharepoint'.   We have sucessfully setup the reporting services from Native to integrated sharepoint with a db name of 'spkingsdb'. We are trying to publish reports to the sharepoint database using Visual Studio, as we are new to sharepoint we are confused as to how to achieve this.  We understand to publish it we need to know the path of the database (reportserver(spkingsdb)), the folder in which the reports will be published to (do we create this? If so then how?), and the server name (http://king-sharepoint/reportserver).  thanks

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

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. 

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

import data from infopath xml forms to SharePoint list

Hi. I have this issue, a customer has an old application that consists of a SharePoint 2003 site and a 'forms library' with forms listing information about physical servers. The infopath (2003) form is pretty straight forward and has a few dropdowns from lists and so on. Now, we need to move this to 2010 and preferably to a list only using oob functionality. I would like to know if anyone has a clue as to how I can get the data from the hundreds of xml files into a list, could be to excel and then to SharePoint, or any means Necessary. I would prefer it if it can be scripted or done using standard tools from Microsoft, no 3rd party custom xml importer...(if it's not really good and free :-) ) ThanksThomas BalkestÃ¥hl - Technical Specialist - SharePoint

Sharepoint 2010: Browser compatible infopath forms are not open in web browser for editing


I created a browser enabled form with InfoPath 2010. I then published the form by selecting the option "Publish form to a SharePoint library" and then selected "Form library" and finally selected "Create a new form library". As a result, a new form library was created.When I click on "add document", the browser opens a new form, which I can fill and save successfully. However, after the form is saved, whenever I click on the form name in the form library to edit it, the browser "opens with" dialog box opens, asking for an XML editor software. In other words, the form does not open in browser for editing even on systems that do not have InfoPath installed.

The form is browser compatible and the form library is configured to open browser-enabled forms in browser. The issue is that the form hyperlink is directly pointing to form XML file rather than pointing to InfoPath form services URL.

I would really appreciate, if someone tells me how I can edit the form in browser.

Urgent: InfoPath Forms on SharePoint and SQL Server


I'm very new to using InfoPath but we recently upgraded to SharePoint Enterprise 2010 and we would really like to take advantage of the new InfoPath Form Services that's available with this version of SharePoint. I need to know if it's possible to build a form that gets data from a Microsoft SQL Server, and also when that form is submitted it will need to populate a table on our Microsoft SQL Server. This form will also need to be published on SharePoint so our users can fill out the form directly from there. Is this possible? I've been trying to figure this out for almost a week now and can't seem to get very far at all- it's very frustrating.

If it is, what would be the first steps that I need to take? I thought it was as simple as building a form in InfoPath2010 and just publishing it to SharePoint but I get the feeling that I need to upload some type of data connections to SharePoint Central Administration?

publish infopath form to sharepoint services 3.0 as content type

InfoPath Forms Services errors

I'am running SharePoint 2010 Server Standard. When trying to configure any of the InfoPath Forms Services from SharePoint 2010 Central Administration I get a File not found error containing a correlation ID number. I'm at a loss as to what the issue is.

URL of current form (InfoPath Forms Services)


I need to programmatically determine the URL of the current form, preferably without adding new dlls to the form template and increasing the trust level.

The XmlLocation query string parameter looks perfect for this, but when I try to retrieve it using 

String strSaveLocation = String.Empty;
e.InputParameters.TryGetValue("XmlLocation", out strSaveLocation)

it is empty.

In fact, outputting all the InputParameters shows that for my existing (i.e. already submitted and saved to a library) form, the XmlLocation parameter is not present (even though I see it in the querystring). Instead, there's SaveLocation (even though it's not in the querystring). The value of SaveLocation isn't dynamic - it points to the root folder even when my form is in a subfodler. I want a value that will work even if the form gets moved to a different subfolder.




infopath template on wss2.0 sharepoint site has been deleted - how to open infopath forms?


Hi All

Is there any way to open infopath forms (from a sharepoint site) if the template has been removed?

I have a case where infopath forms (xml files) have been saved to a sharepoint site, but the templates (xsn files) have been deleted.

Some users are still able to open the infopath forms and I'm guessing it is because the templates are cached on their workstations.

The problem obviously comes into play when a new user or user with a new workstation tries to open the infopath forms.

Any ideas how these files could be opened?
