SharePoint 2007 and Office 2010 Compatibility


So far all of my clients that have been piloting Office 2010 have been running into complications with updating documents in a SharePoint 2007 environment.  They are receiving the following notification when trying to save their changes:

<Document Name> has not been uploaded to the server.  Do you want to close this file?  All Microsoft Office files that have changes pending upload to the server can be viewed here:Microsoft Office Upload Center

In the Upload center we have the following status: Upload Failed - Upload Error

No additional information is available, you just have an option to select 'Resolve'.  This tells you to save the document localy and then upload it to the SharePoint server.  Has anyone found a better log location that can be reviewed for status errors with the Upload Center?  Or, is Office 2010 even really usable within a corporate environment running SharePoint 2007?

Sharepoint Foundation 2010 problems with Office 2007 ActiveX controls

I have a SPF server that I recently upgraded from WSS 3 using the database attach method. The new server configuration is SQL 2008 R2 with SPF 2010 on Windows 2008 64bit SP2. Mostly things are working fairly well, though there have been a few fires to put out. The latest inflamation seems to be centered around ActiveX controls for Office 2007. I'm getting the following message whenever I try to create a new document using the New button: " 'New Document' requires a Microsoft SharePoint Foundation-compatible application and web browser. To add a document to this document library, click the 'Upload Document' button." On the client side, the browser is IE8 on Windows 7 (Windows is 64bit, though the browser is in 32 bit mode.) using Office 2007. I've also had the same problem with systems running XP. In terms of troubleshooting, other activeX related features seem to be working fine. I can open datasheet views, if I click on a document, it will open in the appropriate client. However, I have some libraries where the Word document template opens the document information panel and those will give thhe following message on open: "One or more ActiveX controls could not be displayed because either: 1)Your current security settings prohibit running ActiveX controls on thi page , or 2) You have blocked a publisher of one of the contols. As a result the page mi

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.

SharePoint 2007 upgrade to 2010 without UI update masterpage issue

I have a public facing site on a SharePoint 2007 farm that will be upgraded to 2010.  This site has a very customized look and feel that will not initially be updated to the 2010 UI.    I have run into one small issue with 2010's handling of legacy 2007 UIs.In SharePoint 2007,  to have a different master page for the application pages and dialog boxes we utilized an HTTP Module to switch the master page on the fly.    After migrating the SP2007 into our 2010 beta test environment the HTTP Module no longer worked properly.   I did some debugging and found out that SharePoint 2010 is returning a NULL value for MasterPageFile property on the pages in the _layouts folder.   I would have expected to see the URL pointing to the application.master page (or dialog.master).   Any ideas if this is a bug in SP2010 beta and will be fixed in RTM or is this the intended behavior.If it is the intended behavior in SP2010 how could I update my HTTP Module to allow the site to continue functioning as it did on 2007?   

Currency and number column error with office 2007 document formats in SharePoint 2010 library

Hi there,



The following error occurred within a SharePoint 2010 document library:

As I tried to test out the new SharePoint 2010 environment I changed the metadata from a few documents within a document library. I noticed that the data from the currency und number field was incorrect from a few documents. The numbers looked like that the decimal separator were ignored. For an example: 123.456,78 was saved as 12.345.678.

At first I thought it could be a language incompabilty but if that would be the case: Why would there be other documents which show the correct number?


I created another document library to recreate this error. And there I noticed the real reason: Every time I changed these fields from a document which was saved in the office 2007 format the error occurred. The metadata from the documents in the office 2003 format were correct.


Has anyone a similar problem or got an idea how to solve this problem?

Long delay opening Word documents from SharePoint 2007 with Office 2010


The first time a document is opened it's fine, opens in just a few seconds.

Subsequently, there is a long delay (about 20 seconds) in the "Contacting server for information..." step.

This happens to all users and all documents, each one will open fast the first time then slowly the second and subsequent times (until, we think, the app pool is recycled - there is no schedules iisreset/reboot).

This does not happen when using Office 2007.

IE6 and 7 exhibit the same behaviour.

SharePoint 2007 & Office 2010: not accepting data in required fields


We recently upgraded everyone to Office 2010, but we are still using MOSS 2007. Since the Office upgrade, I am getting numerous reports of problems with the 'required fields' of any document be editing (or newly created) when users try to save it back to the server.

These documents are throwing error messages indicating that some required properties 'are missing or invalid'. However all the needed info is indeed there. Even existing documents (that already have the field data in place) are giving the message when a save (or save as) is attempted. However, if the user saves a copy of the document locally and then manually uploads it via the SharePoint UI, it works fine. It appears to only come up when they use an Office app for editing and try to save it directly back to the server from the app. This process worked fine with Office 2007.

This only started when the Office 2010 upgrades were rolled out, and (as far as I know) no changes were made to SP at all. I have never seen this phenomenon before, so I would greatly appreciate any advice and/or education on this.  :)


What compatibility issues present with MOSS 2007 and Office 2010?

We have been running MOSS 2007 for a year now and recently upgraded office workstations to Office 2010.  I am trying to research what compatibility issues might be experienced with this match of products.  Thank you for any examples.

After SharePoint 2007 upgrade to SharePoint 2010 issue with custom site(s)


With our 2007 site(s) we had a custom module (we developed) to swap out the application.master with our own master page which resembled the site default.master.  This worked great.

After the upgrade, out site's main pages looked fine however when navigating to the admin type pages (settings/viewlists etc.) pages the module stopped working.

1.) I have figured out something things with respect to what is going on but am still at a loss to how best resolve.  We want the layouts/admin pages to have the same master page as the main user pages.   I have read in 2010 this is now possible.  How can I achieve this?


2.) Currently, when navigating to the sites/settings page the site is using template/layouts/layoutsv3.master as the master page.  The settings.aspx page has DynamicMasterPageFile="~masterurl/default.master" .  It was my understanding that when DynamicMasterPageFile was set to default.master it would use the master page from the site.  So, with that said I am confused why it is using layoutsv3.master

any help would be appreciated
