Printing from Infopath to word not working

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 03, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I am trying to use InfoPath to Word Wizard tool, part of Microsoft Office InfoPath SDK for print data gathered using an InfoPath to work with a Word document.

Although there is not any error message through  the process, there is no data output printed.

If I review the .XSl generated by the Wizard, I cannot find any reference to the data contained at the InfoPath form. Furthermore, If I try to open the Word document I got a message from Word saying that the file contains personalized XML elements that are not admitted by Word anymore.

I suspect that the problem is because by error I installed the KB974631 to my Word, but there is not an uninstall option. I already uninstalled and installed again the whole Office suite without results. I am using Windows 7 professional and Office 2007.

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!

Microsoft Word hyperlinks not working consistently in Sharepoint

I'm running into an issue with some Word hyperlinks.  I have a Word document (with embedded hyperlinks) uploaded to a document library.  If I go into the library and click on the document, the hyperlinks work as intended (which is to say that the embedded hyperlinks open up a .pdf in a NEW window). However, on my home page, I have a link to the Word document directly (not to the library, to the actual file).  If I use this link, then the embedded hyperlinks open the .pdf in the SAME window. Part of the issue seems to be that when I open the document from within the library, it opens it with what I'll call a Word emulator whereas if I follow the link from the home page, it opens it with a regular web browser.  Is there a way to get the link from the home page to also use this emulator?  Alternatively, are there any other solutions?  I really need to be able to use the home page link method.

InfoPath / ActiveX error when using person selector field in Word template off SharePoint document l

I have created an out-of-the-box document library on a SharePoint 2010 site.  I left Microsoft Word Document selected as the Document Template.  I then added a person or group column and a multiple lines of text column to the document library. I then went into Library Settings --> Advanced Settings and clicked on Edit Template, opening the template in Word.  I created my template and added the two new columns to the document.  I did this using the Quick Parts --> Document Property --> [column name] feature under the Insert tab in Word.  I then saved the template back to SharePoint. Upon opening the template or creating a new document from the template, I get the following dialog box: --------------------------- Microsoft Office InfoPath --------------------------- One or more ActiveX controls could not be displayed because either: 1) Your current security settings prohibit running ActiveX controls on this page, or 2) You have blocked a publisher of one of the controls. As a result, the page might not display correctly. --------------------------- OK   --------------------------- I've searched around (I believe fairly extensively) and have not run into anyone else with the same issue.  Some have mentioned a similar error when creating a custom document information panel in InfoPath, and suggested lowered ActiveX security setti

Editing SharePoint forms in Word Document with InfoPath



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?



Data Connections Stopped Working In Infopath 2010


I have an Infopath 2007 web enabled form that I converted to Infopath 2010.  I also converted the data connection to 2010.  The server is also SP2010.  Now when the form is accessed via the browser the following error occurs.

"You do not have permissions to access a SharePoint list that contains data required for this form to function correctly."

It works ok in preview mode.  And nothing else has changed.  The production 2007 Infopath version of this form still works.  Security is set to "Domain".  And there is no issue with access to the data connection list.  What am I missing?

also i checked the infopath configuration from 


Configure InfoPath Forms Services 


to be "(Allow users to browser-enable form templates) and (Render form templates that are browser-enabled by users)"


i checked my form settings from " Form Library Settings > Advanced Settings" to be "Open in the browser "


as a final result for my tests , i can publish my form but it not browseable and i can't find the infopath service in the site collection features 


i almost tried everything and still trying with no good results till now. 





SharePoint Designer Workflow Activity to generate Word Document from Infopath xml




I am considering the follow implementation.

I have a workflow that user fills out to get funding and once approved (via workflow) I want to at the end of the approval generate the letter dynamically based on the values out of the infopath form.

Now I am thinking of the following solutions.

A custom activity where you point it to the word document to use and then set the fields out of the infopath that you want transfered into the word document.

Is this going to be even possible.

The type of data I have is fields from lookup, people pickers, text, curreny etc.

Is there another option maybe having a document lib with these fields as text and create new item in it and move these values into there (is that possible via designer?)


The document has to be able to be easily editable by the end user to change the template and also to be able to edit the actual document once created.


Any help would be great.

Can you have InfoPath export a list into a Word Doc and have that mailed?


Have a very particular question here. We have a client that have items located in a list within SharePoint 2007. Their requirement is as follows...

After a new item is created

Take the items in the list and generate a new word document

Attach that word document with any other attachments to the item and email that to the client.

I was told this can be done in InfoPath but I don't see where InfoPath could automatically generate a Word Document from a list and email it somewhere. If this is possible can someone point me to an example please?

Any help is appreciated, thank you in advance.

Working with SharePoint document libraries

Document libraries are collections of files that you can share with team members on a Web based on Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services. For example, you can create a library of common documents for a project, and team members can use their Web browsers to find the files, read them, and make comments. Users with Microsoft Office 2003 can check out and edit the files as if they resided on a local or network drive.

By default, your team Web site comes with a built-in document library named Shared Documents, which is listed on the Quick Launch bar as well as on the Documents and Lists page.
