Moss 2007 and Infopath 2003 client

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 13, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

System config:

SharePoint 2007 SP2 - 64 bit Standard edition

2 WFE, 1 APP/index,  Clustered SQL DB Servers (SQL 2005)


Issues is with Infopath forms saved to a document library (NO FORMS SERVICES ENABLED - MOSS Standard license), no code behind, just XML based form with a number of fields in it linked to an xsn that is located on another server entirely.

Client machines are IE 6 Infopath 2003


When form is opened by an owner - works fine, client opens no issue

When form is opened by a contributor - unless checked out first or if the "Require checkout before allowing editing of file" is disabled works fine

When form is not checked out to contributor or if the user if a viewer the error is:

"Infopath cannot open the following file:<filename>.xml. The file does not appear to be an infopath form ."

Show details:

"The processing instruction in the file is missing or invalid"

I tried a couple tests, I logged into Windows as a user who had viewer rights and then logged into MOSS as a user who has owner rights. Issue still happens. So I am assuming there is a second call being made by the InfoPath client using the windows identity and integrated auth.

If I download the file to my desktop it opens just fine. I cannot determine what ch

Office 2003 integration with MOSS 2007



All my documents are opening as read-only when I open from SharePoint sites even when I click on "Edit in ..." option on some machines.

The users seem to have correct permissions on the site.

MOSS 2007 and Word/Excel 2003

Hi, I am working with MOSS 2007 and building a context webpart which contains links to various places. One of the the links is trying to go to a Bookmark in a Word 2003 document. Upon attempting this it only goes to the top of the document and not to the expected bookmark location. I then tried to define a named range in an Excel 2003 file and had Sharepoint point to the named range. The same behavior occurred, it simply went to the top of the document. Here is a code snippet which points to the excel name range called Base: <A href="http://tserver4/sites/HALBI/GON/Shared%20Documents/Parts.xls#Base"> Does anyone know of any issues with this scenario? Thanks, Larry

Book to learn and Develop enterprise application using InfoPath with workflow in MOSS 2007

Hi all, I'm new to infopath forms and i dont find much articles to develop enterprise application (I'm coding for an ERP module).

Install MOSS 2007 and ProClartity 6.3 (PAS6.3) on the same Microsoft Windows 2003 Server

An install of MOSS 2007 and ProClartity 6.3 (PAS6.3) on the same Microsoft Windows 2003 Server seems to be problematic. MOSS 2007 creates a default website and stops the normal default website. As soon as PAS 6.3 is installed it installs to this stopped default website. How can I overcome this issue?

MOSS 2007 to SharePoint Server 2010 Hybrid Upgrade Approach on Windows Server 2003 x64

There's some guidance circulating about upgrading to 2010 with a mix of In-Place and Database Attach upgrade methods. My Central Admin and SharePoint Web App are on a 64 bit server, but it's running on Windows server 2003 x64 and not on Windows Server 2008 or 2008 R2. SharePoint Team Blog says Server 2008 or 2008 R2 is required for SP2010. If I want to do the hybrid upgrade approach, is it possible to first upgrade the OS to Server 2008 R2 on the server where my Central Admin and SP Web App runs?  Or will this break MOSS 2007?

Exchange 2003 Inbox and Calendar webparts for MOSS 2007


I've created one Inbox and one Calendar wepbart as descibed here:


using  OWAInboxPart and OWACalendarPart (code below).

When deploying them and placing them on the same page, only one of them will show anything. It looks like the last added webpart works, while the other won't.
If any one of them is placed alone on a page, they work as expected.

Does anyone know how to make them work togheter on the same page?

Thank you for your time!

Best regards,

move infopath forms from SP Portal Server 2003 to 2007


I am a newbie to SharePoint. Please let me know if I didn't explain my problem well...

We built the new SharePoint server 2007 on a different physcial box from the old server 2003. There are huge amount of InfoPath forms in form library on the old server. I was told that: to get these forms moved over to the new server 2007, we have to save the forms and re-publish to the new server one at a time. This will be really time consume and also loosing the attributes of the original forms, the date it was created and modified etc.

I would like to see if there is a way to move one form library at a time, and just copy the forms over; not publishing them again.

Many thanks!


Help to manage migration from farm WSS 2.0/MOSS 2003 to farm WSS 3.0/ MOSS 2007



we need to move an application (only a site collection/portal site)  hosted in farm using  WSS 2.0(SharePoint Portal Server 2003 integrated with Project Server 2003) to a new farm where is installed WSS 3.0 and SharePoint Portal Server 2007.

We do not care at all about the part managed by Project Server 2003 . We are interested to obtain all lists, items and users information stored in the application (basically all the content part managed by MOSS 2003).

Which is the best strategy to get the job done ?

We have tried these steps to check if our strategy could work but it didn’t:




Hi All,

We have applied the ADFC successfuly on our Moss 2007 environment. But we are not able to open the document in Office 2003 component.

But all the document are getting open in Office 2007 component. Any help or work around?


Licensing for InfoPath 2007 when using Rich Client Forms only



I am using InfoPath 2007. I intend to design and distribute Rich Client forms only, and once the user fills the form, they will submit the data to a Web Service or Email the form data (xml). I am aware that each user will need to have InfoPath 2007 installed on their computer, which is ok for me. My question is, apart from purchasing the Office InfoPath 2007 (which in my case comes with Office 2007 Enterprise), are there any other licences I will need in order to deploy my solution?

Thanks and regards.

Infopath 2010 submitting to MOSS 2007

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.


calling InfoPath 2007 Client from SharePoint 2010 Foundation


I'm relatively new to SharePoint and very new to InfoPath. A client I just acquired hired me to develop a fairly complicated InfoPath solution that they want to be able to call from within SharePoint. Right now, they have a new SharePoint 2010 Foundation system and Form Server is not installed. They also currently have Office 2007, including the InfoPath client, on all computers in the workplace (this is an intranet only situation).

First, I created the needed lists/libraries in SP. Then I set to work developing the form in IP Designer 2010 (setting it for IP 2007 client compatibility). While the form is not yet done, I now want to setup a link in a ListView in SharePoint that launches the IP 2007 client on the user's computer, but I'm having troubles figuring out which way to go. There is a fair amount of C# code used by the form and while I'm an administrator on the server, I'm not familiar with setting up certificates to enable full trust (if that's what I need to do).

As a newbie, I'd really appreciate any pointers to existing answers or guidance of whatever sort.


Cannot install MOSS 2007 on Windows server 2003 SP2



I try to install moss 2007 on a developper workstation:

An error occured in the step 2 of the installation (installation of the administration database)

The error is as follow:


Exception: System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: the procedure or function 'proc_SetDatabaseInformation' expected the '@Value' parameter, wich is not provided

i first try with an sql server 2005 database instance, then with an sql server 2008 database instance. Same problem.



In the log file, i can see this message before the exception:

Creating a new farm with config db SharePoint_Config content db SharePoint_AdminContent_59286dfd-6ead-46e6-8268-7b4c0f5025b1 server XXXXX for farm mode

The thing is, i do not want a farm mode installation, but the install wizard do not allow me to choose a non farm install.

Maybe this is non relevant, i don't know.


Thanks for your help
