The document could not be opened for editing. A Microsoft SharePoint Foundation compatible applicati

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

Hi All,

I have a document library which contains doc files. Microsoft office is not installed over the SharePoint server. When I am opening the document file from any Windows 7 or windows server 2003 machine it is giving me following error. (The client machines have microsoft office installed.)

"The document could not be opened for editing. A Microsoft SharePoint Foundation compatible application could not be found to edit the document."

Now when I open the same document from XP machine every thing works fine.

It is nothing to do with Firefox or IE version I have checked with all and the results are same for all browsers.

I am started loosing interest in SharePoint for its unpredictable behavior. Developing a thing in SharePoint is 10% work and 90% debugging.

I hope I will get some result or atleast the reason for behavior.

Thanks,

Mahitosh Kumar

Windows Sharepoint Foundation 2010 - Document Library Settings with Reporting Services 2008 R2 in in

  
I have a client who has recently upgraded their SharePoint system to Windows Sharepoint Foundation 2010 with Reporting Services 2008 R2 in integrated mode. I have configured reporting services and am able to deploy reports to SharePoint. The client created a document library before the upgrade to WSF 2010. I need to add Report Builder 3.0 to the New Document menu and found the following article. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb326289.aspx "Allow management of content types?" is set to yes under the advanced document library settings. The problem is that when I try to "add from existing site content types" the reporting services content types are not in the list. I appreciate any help you can give me.

Sharepoint 2010: Browser compatible infopath forms are not open in web browser for editing

  

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.

 

 

 


Your backup is from a different version of Microsoft SharePoint Foundation -- Sharepoint 2010

  

I made a backup of SharePoint farm from 2010 and tried to restore on a dev server and kept getting this error.  I looked at the versions of SharePoint on both servers, and they were identical:  14.0.4763.1000

I'm posting this although it is not a question, but a statement that might help someone else.  It took a while to notice that there had been an upgrade on the original server that the new dev box did not yet have... not an SP, but more like a hotfix type upgrade.

In Central Admin, go to "Upgrade and Migration".  Click on "Check product and patch installation status".  Scroll down the page of results and see if there are any links to updates that have been installed on the original server that are not on the new server, or vice-versa.  I did find a link on my original server.  Clicking on it opened the update page, so I copied the URL, went to my dev server, opened that page and installed the update, and voila!

Microsoft Project 2010 synchronize with SharePoint Foundation error (invalid characters)

  

I have been unable to synchronize my MS Project with a SharePoint Foundation tasks list. Each time I try I get the following message:

"Unable to synchronize the project with the SharePoint tasks list because the list name contains invalid characters. Modify the list name and synchronize again. Valid list names cannot contain any of the following characters: !.[]'"

I click OK and the process stops. It creates the Task list in SharePoint but does no more.

The SharePoint task list name is not the issue. I've tried a few (Project Tasks, tasks etc). It's not the Task Name in Project either. I'm using a test project file with only two tasks called "Startup" and "planning".

Any ideas?


Editing SharePoint forms in Word Document with InfoPath

  

Hello,

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?

Thanks!

Document Approval Process in SharePoint Foundation

  

Hello,

I am currently analyzing the workflow capabilities available in SharePoint Foundation (free version).  One of the business needs my company has is that they would like to be able to submit a document that goes through an approval process.  For examples user1 adds the document then next another user or multiple users are sent an email stating that they need to go into SharePoint and approve this document, then it might be routed for more approval, etc.  My question is does the version I am currently working with support the use of an "approval" type workflow?  Do I need to upgrade to the pay version?  Thanks in advance.


Manually specify database name for Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Search Service Settings

  

Hi Team,

I wanted to specify database name manually for Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Search Service under Application management | Manage services on server | Sharepoint Foundation Search . Under Search database settings,  it says 'Use of the default database server and database name is recommended for most cases. Refer to the administrator's guide for advanced scenarios where specifying database information is required.' . Specifying database name field is coming grayed out and can't have option to specify my own database name. Any help to specify database name for foundation search will be highly ppreciated.

 

Thanks

The Select Microsoft SharePoint Foundation search server drop down is greyed out.

  

I am trying to select a server that is running the Microsoft SharePoint Foundation search service but the drop down is disabled.  I have verifed that that SharePoint Foundation Search V4 is started.  But when I go to Central Adminstration > Manage Content Database Settings > and choose my content database it won't let me select a search server.  I only have one SharePoint Server so the search service is local.

Thank you
