Issue in Infopath 2007 browser form - cascading dropdown using owssvr.dll filter view

  

Referring the below link, I created a cascading dropdown. The parent dropdown has sharepoint list as datasource and the child dropdown has xml datasource that points to owssvr.dll filter view. The cascading drop down works fine in preview but throws error after publishing as admin approved form - "form cannot run the specified query" exception when trying to execute xml datasource i.e., when a value is selected in parent dropdown. The security is 'Full Trust". In the event viewer the error message states "401 unauthorised" for the user a/c. the xml data source is an approved udcx file and in central admin, have enabled cross domain for infopath service. I have tried different solution provided in tech forums but issue still exists. Not sure whether Im missing something. Can someone guide me in fixing this issue?

Submtting Calendar items with variable date information via InfoPath 2007 form

  

Hi-

I've seen several posts regarding submitting to a list using and InfoPath form which I am successfully able to do in limited form. (only passing a basic date value) My environment: MOSS 2007 Enterprise w/SP2, InfoPath 2007, SPD 2007.

I'm basically trying to recreate a calendar form with the same data elements (and some additional ones for a specific business requirement) as the standard calendar newform.aspx form. (start time, end time broken down by date, hour, minute and All day event)

I need the form users to be able to select the date and if it is not an All day event...be able to select the hours and minutes just like on the newform.aspx. (date picker control for date and drop downs for hour and minute selection)

On submit I then need to create the list item with the appropriate data passed via a workflow.

My Start Time has a validation rule to not allow dates prior to the current date (and it can't blank) The End Time has a validation rule to not allow dates prior to what is specified as the Start Time value. (Also can't be blank) When I attempt to include conditonal formatting to hide the hour and minute drop downs if 'All Day Event' is selected I get errors stating the fields can't be blank.

I also can't figure out how to pass the entire date/time values or the All Day Event to the list withou

Hi all

I have a user who receives the error 'This form requires connections to data sources when it is loaded. At least one of these connections is not available. As specified by the form designer, this form will not open' when trying to Submit an infopath form located on a WSS2.0 site.

I am not aware of any other users experiencing this issue.

Any ideas please?


Deploying InfoPath 2007 form to WSS 3.0 as browser enabled

  

Please Help! I've created an Infopath form and wanted to deploy the form as browser enabled to WSS 3.0? What are the different options I can do this? If i cannot use a form then i would like to  create a custom list with all the form fields but the user should be able to enter information in the list and he should see only the information related to him. I don't want to give access of the whole list to each and every user. Only the administrator should be able to see the whole list. The form was actually a user access request form.

Any help and suggestions is appreciated.

Thanks


Cascading Dropdown Question

  

Hi,

I have 2 parent child cascading dropdowns on my form. At present they work as normal so you can only select a value from the second once you've selected one from the first, otherwise it's disabled. Is it possible to show all values in the second if you haven't selected anything from the first? Does that make sense?

Thanks.

Infopath 2007 not printing footer in browser print view

  
I have added a footer to the print view of a browser enabled form and it is not printing when printing the form. The footer is relatively sinmple, however when I click on print view on the browser form and use print preview, I cannot see the footer at all. I have set bottom margins to auto, however I am using an image in my header and therefore have a section at the top of each page where my page top margin is set to 0 and the margins lie within the bounds of the section at .25". The footer that is not displaying in print preview in the form is as follows;"Quote Number: &{/my:myFields/my:sqnumber&} &b&pof&P&b &b &{/my:myFields/my:group28/my:sqdate&}Revision: &{xdFormatting:FormatString("/my:myFields/my:sqquoterevision","number","numDigits:0;negativeOrder:1;")&} &b Prepared For: &{/my:myFields/my:sqclientname&}"The page setup in IE listed page number and url info when using print preview and I have set them to none because my footer is in the form. Please help, this is frustrating!
