Submit a form to multiple libraries - Promote different fields in each library?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 30, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I have a form that is submitted to multiple libraries.  The primary library has many fields promoted (~60).  I wish to be able to promote different fields (~50) specifically for workflows.  I cannot simply promote the additional fields in the primary library, as that would exceed the field promotion limit.  Currently the secondary submission libraries only have the basic promotions - title, filename, etc.  How would I promote specific form fields in the secondary library?

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.

RPC and C++: Build a Template Library for Distributed Objects Containing Multiple Interfaces


Building a C++ template library for developing distributed object-oriented applications using Remote Procedure Calls (RPC) allows the programmer to design RPC applications that are composed of components that implement multiple interfaces. This article demonstrates the use of techniques such as assembly-level thunks to build machine code on the fly, and C++ features such as templates, conversion operators, virtual destructors and virtual function tables. Along the way, familiar C++ interfaces and classes are transformed into a distributed application. The benefits of using distributed objects rather than raw remote procedures, which include writing fewer lines of code, is explained.

Updating Task Lists and Form Libraries From Workflow Form


There are actually two separate (I think) problems here. The scenario: I used the SharePoint Designer 2007 to create a workflow attached to a form library. When a form is submitted to the library, a To-Do-Item is created on a task list. The To-Do-Item is initially assigned to a GROUP. A user from the group then selects the name of an individual from a choice list in edit item. This person now becomes the Assigned To for the task.

What is needed is 1) To update the Assigned To column of the Form library when someone in the GROUP assigns the task to an INDIVIDUAL; and 2) To have the Due Date from the submitted InfoPath form propagate to the task list.

I've tried having one workflow try to do everything and also having a secondary workflow set up on the task list to do the task assignment update but have not been successful in solving either issue. I don’t think that I am really understanding how to Define Workflow Lookup when not working with the Current Item. I know what fields I want but I don’

Switch views when opening a form depending on submit locations?



I would like to know it was possible to switch views when opening a form depending on where the form has been submitted.

I am submitting my form to library A and library B and want to be able to open it in view 1 in library A and in view 2 in library B.

Is there a way to set some url conditions in the open behavior rules?

Thanks a lot!
