Powerpoint can't read the outline from http://it/presentation.ppt. No text converter is installed

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 08, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I have a user on my sharepoint 2007 environment that has a Powerpoint file that continues to display this message.  Is there something that needs to be added to Sharepoint to enable this file to open?  Where is this supposed to be added?

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.

Read a text file on another server from a web page

How do I read/write a text file on another server from a web page. I get the error "Access to the path '//Server2/mydatafiles/test.txt' is denied".

Powerpoint ppsx files open as read only in sharepoint with not option to edit

With Powerpoint 20007 in sharepoint(MOSS 2007) the PPSX files are opening in read only mode with no option to edit to be found. 2nd issue is ppsx files do not open on any persons computer as a show.  Is it possible to change this? How do I change this so I can edit the slides? Current "bad" solution is to save to local drive than upload them over the location  on sharepoint.

How to Set Up Remote Desktop with Windows Mobile 6.1 Read more: http://www.brighthub.com/mobile/win

Most Windows Mobile 6.1 devices come with RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) as an optional component - one that allows the user of the device to interact with a remote PC running Windows XP (or Vista), whether it's situated in the home or office.
Setup on your PC First

It's a topic that is surrounded by mystery, due to a combination of secrecy and apathy - yet Remote Desktop Mobile on Windows Mobile 6.1 is surprisingly easy to set up, with great results.

Remote working via your Windows Mobile 6.1 device is likely to be something that happens rarely - such as when you need to urgently retrieve a file, for instance. Whatever the reason Remote Desktop needs to be enabled on your Windows desktop PC before you can continue.

Opening a PowerPoint presentation fails with error "invalid path or file name".

When you go to a Document Library and try to open the presentation, PowerPoint opens, but then you get the error "The path or file name for "file URL" is invalid.  Please check that the path and file name are correct."I installed MOSS/WSS SP2 about 2 weeks ago, this happened once or twice before then, but I now know of about a half-dozen presentations that won't open.There is a way to get the file to open, if you hit the drop-down next to the file and select Send To and Download a Copy, you can save or open it from there.If you try browsing to if from within PowerPoint, it won't open either, and will also not open in Explorer View.  We have replaced the file, saved as a different name, etc. with no luck.Using both IE 7 and IE 8 and both XP Pro and Vista Business workstations.Any ideas out there?Thanks,Rusty

How to read/write GIANT text file with no line breaks


I have to process giant XML files that are 6GB+ in size.  The problem is that there are no line breaks in the file, and the XML is improperly formatted (no root element).  Therefore I can't use the XML class to read the file, and I can't open the file in any text editor or even "Type" it in a command window because the 1 line in the file is over 6GB.

The file contains UTF8 characters.  What I want to do is first write a program just to read and display 100 characters at a time so I can look at the contents.  Next I want to be able to create a new file, write a root element, read/write the contents of the file and then write the closing root element.

Can anyone provide a code snippet of how to read and display the file contents 100 characters at a time.  I can then figure out the rest.

DataGridComboBoxColumn bound to an enum w/ text converter


I'm trying to get a DataGridComboBoxColumn to bind to a property that is an value of an enum.  If I use AutoGenerateColumns=True, it does it automatically.  I know that I shouldn't have to create a static resource.  With auto generating columns it shows the name of the enum value selected.  Those don't have spaces in them, but are well described; therefore, I'd also like to get a string version of it the enum.  Any ideas how to do this?  Even if we can just solve the first part of my question; that would be nice.

<DataGrid Grid.Row="2" ItemsSource="{Binding Path=Users}" AutoGenerateColumns="False" >
        <DataGridTextColumn Header="Username" Binding="{Binding Name}"/>
        <DataGridTextColumn Header="Password" Binding="{Binding Password}"/>
        <DataGridComboBoxColumn Header="User Type" SelectedItemBinding="{Binding Type}" />

ODBC text driver doesn't read columns containing double quotes



I'm having some trouble with importing some information from a delimited text file into an SQL database. I made a DSN for the file using the  Microsoft ODBC driver. It reads most of the data fine. I can get most of it into the database, or using Excel I can display it in a table.

This is a regular text file, the delimiter is a "|" character. Some of the data has double quotes embedded in it. Every time it hits one of these double quotes, the rest of the information on that line are ignored.Then it will move on to the next line in the file.

Is there a way to set up the driver to read these quotes somehow, or to just ignore them?

I'm new to WPF and have to write a program to display a PowerPoint presentation. It doesn't need to do anything except put it up on the screen and play the presentation. It cannot require PowerPoint to be installed on the machine.

Can somebody please give me some direction? I've found stuff about using a Windows Hosting Form but am at a lose after that.

TIA - Jeff.
