How to avoid adding MY prefix to field name in InfoPath ?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 06, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint


I have created a new form from xml format. So, I want to add several fields. But, when I try to add a new one, InfoPath adds prefix my:  to my fields name. Is it possible to disable adding this prefix?

Now it is   /Data/Financial/Schedule/Advance/Row/my:Sum

But I need this  /Data/Financial/Schedule/Advance/Row/Sum , because other fields without "my:" prefix.

How to read a column of a sharepoint list to a text string field of infopath form?

My infopath form used to read these email addresses from a web service and web.config file. Now i would like to get these user email addresses from a contact list in a sharepoint server. I am trying to do this without writing any codes. Here is what i have done so far: 1. Adding a new "data connection to receive data from SharePoint library or List" where i selected Email Address column of the contact list. 2. I added a new Text Field and define a new rule with "Query using a data connection" defined above. When i try to access the newly created Text field above it always return empty as if the Query attached to it did not executed at all. What did i do wrong? Is there a better way? Thank you in advance for your help.

Adding starting text to a column field

I am wanting to know if there is a way you can add starting text within a field that displays within a page layout?  I have a page layout that has a field (column) called 'page summary'. What I want to do is when a content managers creates a new page based on that page layout, the text "This page contains a public notice" is automatically inserted in the page summary field and the content manager can continue typing or highlight the text and remove it. Kind of like adding a base 'Text Value' to the field (column).  I want to be able to do it without having to do custom code though.

Splitting a memo field into lines and adding a value at the start of each line

I have one memo field which has a bunch of text in it. I want to update another memo field from the first one but i want to divide it into lines of 50 characters and put a carriage return at the end of each line and a string value (Note:) at the beginning of each line But I am not sure how to go about it. The text in the first field may have line breaks and carriage returns or it may not. So is there a way i can strip out anything like that first See example below Memo Field1 The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog. And the Dish ran away with the spoon, the little dog laughed to see such fun and the Cow fell of the wall Memo Field2 Note: The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog. And Note: the Dish ran away with the spoon, the little dog l Note: aughed to see such fun and the Cow fell of the wal Note: l   ideally it wouldn't cut words in half but I think I may be asking too much.   Is this possible?

Adding Custom Actions to Ribbon UI in InfoPath forms

Hi experts, - I have a custom List in my site. - I have modified the default SharePoint List forms (DispForm.aspx, EditForm.aspx and NewForm.aspx) using InfoPath 2010, changes being related to the layout of input controls. - Then I wish to add a custom action (a print button - for printing based on modified layout) in the Ribbon Control of these InfoPath modified forms (i.e. displayifs.aspx, editifs.aspx, newifs.aspx). - I am doing the following http://www.endusersharepoint.com/2010/02/19/adding-custom-actions-to-the-ribbon-ui-in-sharepoint-2010-using-sharepoint-designer-2010/ but i guess, it only forms for the SharePoint List forms and not the Infopath modified forms. Any suggestions on how to add a custom action of 'Print' on the Ribbon UI of the list forms. Is there any other better approach? Kindly advise. -Pallz.

Issue Adding a new Lookup Field to an existing List Instance

I have a code base that houses all of the column, content types, template, and list instance definitions. Am using the Update functionlaity a lot from version to version. Has been working well to this point. I just added two new columns (fields), one a Lookup and the other a Multi-Lookup. The fields are added fine on the update, columns look correct and the content type to which these were added also look fine. I can create a new List instance from the content type, and the new lookup columns are fine. The problem is this. Any existing list instances that were created from this same content type, now blow up when I try and access list items via the SP GUI. Something about a valid GUID, I dont't have the exect error anymore, but will repost it when I recreate the issue for the tenth time. I tried deleting the new lookup fields from this new list instance, thinking that I might be able to re-add them to fix the problem, but I get a new stack trace when I try and re-add them. Any hints on where I can start digging would be appreciated. I think I'll start with comparing the list instance schemas between an existing list and a newly created one.  

How to insert a name field on an InfoPath path that allows you to insert names from the AD directory

How can I set up a field on an Infopath form so that when I click on a "Check Names" button, (exactly the same way it works on a SharePoint point Name field), the name is checked against the AD directory? I am not trying to control user access to sections of the form - I am simply adding names to the form that is collecting data on a task - such as Delivery Lead, Designer, etc.

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

Map an InfoPath form field to a SharePoint column

I am trying to create a custom SharePoint list template feature (feature.xml, schema.xml, the whole nine yards), which is based on the OOTB XML Form Library in MOSS 2007. I copied the XmlFormLibrary feature out of the FEATURES folder on my SharePoint server, and made a few minor modifications (changed the feature name, new GUID, added some fields in schema.xml, created a new content type for it, etc...).

What I ultimately want to do is publish an InfoPath form template into it as the document template for the library, and I would like to be able to map certain fields in the form template to fields in my custom SharePoint library template. In InfoPath, I open the Publishing Wizard and go through the typical steps to publish to a Document Library. I then choose the columns in my form that I want to promote to fields in the form library, and select the appopriate fields to map to in the form library. I publish the form, and do not get any errors or warnings.

However, when I choose "New" from the form library and fill out the form and save it, only certain fields in the library are actually being populated from the form. Specifically, this seems to work fine for a date/time field I am using, but does not work for the "Location" field. I am using the OOTB "Location" field from the "Core Contact and Calendar Columns" group. Ev

Is there any way to populate an InfoPath form field with the data from the site content type column?


I have a Form library with a form template.

The templat has a field "Office name" which should not be a fixed list of values, but a dynamical list, feeded from a different type of form. I'm a novice with InfoPath - Sharepoint and I want to find out, how can I can give users a possibility to create and maintain a list of offices and also have this list as a selection list inside main library form - ALL inside one library, if possible.

I assumed that if I publish main form (Itinerary) as a library template form and lookup form (OfficeInfo) as a SiteContent, I should be able somehow to connect to siteContent column and it's information. But I cannot see how - Site Content Gallery is not appering as a Connection item.

Can I use SiteConenct for this purpose or there are other ways to create end-user lookup lists?

Thank you!
