Infopath 2010 submitting to MOSS 2007

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 11, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Hi all,

I have a quick query regarding Infopath 2010 submitting data into a MOSS 2007 form library.  This is the first time I'm trying to build a form using 2010.  Normally in 2007, when cerating the submission I'd query the form library to get the ID & then use @max(ID)+1 to get the next available number which I'd then use in the name of the form, however, in Infopath 2010, you don't appear to be able to use the ID field in formula as it doesn't appear in the list of avaialble fields in the data connection.  I considered using a calculated field which equals the ID, but calculated fields aren't usable either.

Has anyone else seen this or is it just my installation? has anyone worked around this?

Thanks in advance.

Best Way to Convert MOSS 2007 Site Templates to SharePoint 2010 Templates

Ok, I just treid to do something that I didn't really think would work, but now that I've seen it fail, I get to ask the question. Is there a best practice on converting site templates built for MOSS 2007 to SharePoint 2010. We have several projects that used the Visual Studio Extensions (v1.3) and the SharePoint Solution Generator to build custom site templates and the .wsp packages. I can add and deploy the solution packages using the STSADM tool, but when I try to create a sub-site based on that template, I get an Object Not Set to an Oject Reference Error. In case anyone is wondering, it works fine in MOSS 2007. I have not tried Visual Studio 2010 yet (it's downloading in the background). I'm just wondering if anyone has run into this and what they did to fix it. TIA, John.

Visual studio 2010 extensions for MOSS 2007/2010?

I know we need Visual Studio 2005/2008 extensions for WSS 3.0/MOSS 2007.  If we upgrate to Visual Studio 2010, do we still need to install a Visual Stidio 2010 extenstion for MOSS 2007?  For MOSS2010?

Infopath Form Data submitting to Sharepoint 2010 List

Making a Client intake form that once submitted will send data to  a sharepoint 2010 List called contacts. Short Summary the form will have repeating fields and alot of information to submit. I have looked and read all over but I cannot find an easy step by step guild on how to submit the form data like that. Long Summary on the sharepoint site a button will open a form for adding a new client.  once the form has been filled out and the user hits submit sharepoint will then create a User File, in clients file, and take the data and put it into contacts list. I am trying to make use of Sharepoint as I would with access, meaning the more information I have on a client the easier it will be to mail merge letters, motions, basicly any file prepaired stuff. So once I have css designed forsharepoint to make it look the way I want then the forms should intergrate perfect

Consume MOSS 2007 list to 2010

Hi all, My end goal is to display a list in SharePoint2010 .... but the list actually originates from SharePoint2007. I thought it could be as easy as creating BCS to the SP2007 list web service (/_vti_bin/Lists.asmx) but BCS has issues with the complex data types and based on other threads this isn't possible.  We've been able to create a data source to the web service and display the list contents on a custom aspx page, but this isn't exactly our end goal. Is there a best practice for this type of thing?  Or do we have to go down the path of creating a custom web part while consuming the web service directly or the SOAP data source we've created?+ Note: Migration is not an option at this point... integration is our current path. Any help is appreciated. Thanks, Eric

MOSS 2007 upgrade to Sharepoint 2010 across domains

I recently did an upgrade at a customer site. I migrated their content successfully as well as their Mysites. Their MOSS farm was situated on a domain, let's say "domain 1". Due to a merger, their domain had to change to "Domain 2". The Sharepoint 2010  farm was set up on new domain. We now need to change the existing user logins from the upgraded content db to the new domain. domain1\user to Doamin2\user.  We considered a manual process, but it is simply not a viable option. Furthermore, the migrated mysites works fine, but the problem is, the users need to login with their old login details to view the content. Which is unacceptable. The mysite content now needs to be associated with the users on the new domain. Bear in mind that the users already have logins and permissions as per the previous configuration (domain1\user) I consideredd using the stsadm migrate user command, but that could also be laborious. The other concern is the SID associated to each login. I am not sure if the -ignoresidhistory switch will help, or if this command is even usable in SP 2010. I there possibly another, more effective method to accomplish these tasks, say a Powershell script or a magic wand?   Regards,   Warren
