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.
Actually, i am working in InfoPath Forms services under MOSS2007. I am publishing Infopath in a specific site (http://<serverName>:<serverport>), and after i upload the administrator form in sharePoint and activate it in a site collection.
I want to ask if there is a solution to publish infopath with code
I have found how to activate infopath in a site collection with code .
thanks for advance.
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?
I am a newbie to SharePoint. Please let me know if I didn't explain my problem well...
We built the new SharePoint server 2007 on a different physcial box from the old server 2003. There are huge amount of InfoPath forms in form library on the old server. I was told that: to get these forms moved over to the new server 2007, we have
to save the forms and re-publish to the new server one at a time. This will be really time consume and also loosing the attributes of the original forms, the date it was created and modified etc.
I would like to see if there is a way to move one form library at a time, and just copy the forms over; not publishing them again.
I am uploading an infopath form to sharepoint. Infopath reports that the form uploaded successfully, however when I click the link to open the form in the browser, I get a message:
The form cannot be rendered. This may be due to a misconfiguration of the Microsoft SharePoint Server State Service. For more information, contact your server administrator.
I've google about and it appears that setting up the state service and associating it with the application solves the problem. I've followed the instructions, but the problem still persists! Do I need to stop/start something else to get it to
work? The service application pages report the service is running and associated with the applications.
Thanks for any help - it's driving me nuts
I have a form that we built in InfoPath2010 and I am trying to publish it to SharePoint2010 using the "broswer-based" capability. The form works in preview mode in InfoPath, but when I publish it to SharePoint, I get the follwing error:
"You do not have permissions to access a database that contains data required for this form to function correctly.
An entry has been added to the Windows event log of the server.
We have a form library that stores a form with information for each database we host for our clients. Each database we host has an associated form with information such as:
And so on...
I was asked to put the form together back a couple months back so we could inventory our databases.
It works, the library now has over 30 forms.
Now I'm being asked to transfer these records from the infopath forms/libray into a database table so we can report from.
I have no clue if I can connect to these forms and pull data from them, do you guys know?
I would like to loop through this library and pull the data from each form into a SQL table, is this doable?
Let me know if you guys can help.
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?
I haveÃÂ published an Infopath form toÃÂ aÃÂ Sharepoint Library. What is the best way to ensure the following:1. have a name per saved form (I do have a name fieldÃÂ which has aÃÂ set certain amount of available names in it which I am currently using as the form name - coming from an XML file)2. users can edit already submitted forms without changing theÃÂ name of the saved form3. Ensure that users who may create a new formÃÂ which happens to have more or less the same data as a previously saved form don't end up overwriting the existing one and hence I end up loosing saved data?Using the name field + allow overwrite will allow me to have a unique name for the form and allow it to be overwritten but if I create a new form with the same name and maybe just a few small differences I will overwrite the existing form which is what I don't want - someone may not realise that an existing form with the relevant information already exists and we could loose already saved informationAny advice would be greatly appreciated.Thanks,Declan.
