Replace text in a word document stored in a Document Library

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 26, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Hi to all,

im tying to replace some text introduced in a word document stored in a document library.

Exactly i need a web part with a button that change a key in a word template <list> (for example) and replace <list> with a text in another list.


I think that it would works with the Microsoft.Office.Word.Interop; namespace but when i call the function :

wDoc = wordApp.Documents.Open(ref fileName, ref missing,
                                ref readOnly, ref missing, ref missing, ref missing,
                                ref missing, ref missing, ref missing, ref missing,
                                ref missing, ref isVisible, ref missing, ref missing,

Search does not find text in Word document stored in document library on a Report Center site within



We have a document library on a site created off of the Report Center site template. We uploaded a Word 2007 document with the word zebra in the text. Using the search bar at the top of the page we selected This list: Our document library and searched for zebra. We received no results.

We tested the same thing on another site (site template Team site) within the same site collection and search worked fine.

Does the Report Center search function differently then the search functionality on the Team site?

Replace Text in textbox in word document using interop and asp.net

Hi all,  I'm trying to create a function to replace fields in a word document using asp.net. The fields are marked in the document using ###field### and I need to replace them with the data from the DB. The code I have works fine for the body of the word document but doesn't appear to work if the text is contained within a textbox, is there a way to correct this? Here's the code I am currently using Dim Contract as string Dim word As New Word.Application        Dim doc As Word.Document        Try            word.Documents.Open("c:\FYI.doc")            word.Visible = True             doc = word.ActiveDocument            Dim myStoryRange As Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.Range            For Each myStoryRange In doc.StoryRanges                With myStoryRange.Find                    .Text = "###field###&quo

Multiline text field in document library and item update from Word trouble

Hi I have faced a bit of odd problem. Here is the scenario: I have document library with text columns (multiple lines of text) that are set to unlimited length. I have a workflow that runs with Word documents (.docx) that stores information in XML to this field. Everything works perfectly until document is edited in Word and saved back to document library. After Word saves my document in document library, the multiline text field is "cutted", only 7 rows of text is saved to my field. I have tried hiding my text field, making it sealed or readonly, but still Word breaks my field. Funniest thing is that when editing document in Word, this field should not have any changes (meaning that I dont show my "long text field" in document information panel back in Word). I have tried also creating event handler to handle itemupdating event in document library where I switch spweb.parserenabled property to false and in itemupdated event I switch it back on. Also I have tried to remove all line changes from XML with no luck. This XML saving to long text field works perfectly with many other places but in this one environment this does not seem to work :( I am looking forward to any suggestions what to try next. I have been wondering about using the eventhandlers and trying to "protect" my text field with some logic but that is still just a thought.   T

Full text search in a Word document



  I´m currently programming a web search application in ASP.Net and having problem with full text searching. My requirements are:

1. Save a byte array from SQL server to word document as a temp file in a server side?

2. How to highlight the string I am currently searching in the Word document and return to the user the sentence with the highlighted string (like on Bing or any other search engines)? Is it possible to fullfill this requirement with full-text search integrated in SQL Server 2008?

Thanks in advance,

Replacing a text question in a Survey using JavaScript at runtime (document.body.innerHTML.replace)

Hi, I want to replace some of the text in a SharePoint Survey at runtime.  The idea behind that is to add a "header" or "title" to questions that are related together.  For example, let's say I have 2 related questions, a page separator, and 2 more related questions: (yes/no type of questions): Q1.  Are you between 20 and 40? Q2.  Did you went to college?   --page separator-- Q3.  J2EE Q4.  C/C++ The result on the final Survey should look like this: Tell us about you. Are you between 20 and 40?  Did you went to college?   --page separator-- Indicate what programming languages you know: J2EE C/C++ Simply, I tried to use the document.body.innerHTML.replace() in order to replace:  - Q1 with: <h2>Tell us about you.</h2>  - Q2 with ''  - Q3 with: <h2>Indicate what programming languages you know:</h2>  - Q4 with: '' Using the technique below, I added the following code in SharePoint Designer in NewForm.aspx: <asp:Content ContentPlaceHolderId="PlaceHolderTitleAreaClass" runat="server"> <script id="onetidPageTitleAreaFrameScript"> document.getElementById("onetidPageTitleAreaFrame").className="ms-areaseparator"; document.body.innerHTML = document.body.innerHTML.replace(/Q1/g,'

How can I preview eml message stored in a SharePoint document library ?



I've put the web upside down to find an answer to my question. But guess what ? I did not find anything so I truely need some help here.

I'm using Outlook 2010 with Exchange and SharePoint 2007. Outlook is connected to a SharePoint list which contains .eml emails.

My problem is I cannot preview .eml messages like the regular .msg ones. To be more precise, if I single click on a .eml message, I get a message saying "This file cannot be previewed because there is no previewer installed for it". Then when I single click on a .msg message, I can instantly view it in the reading pane.

Note that double-cliking on a .eml works just as fine as any other message (except from those annoying message open confirmations). But that's not my problem.

You may think I'm a little bit fussy here but believe me, my job is all about opening emails...

Default Column Values in a Document Library (SP2010) do not show up in word 2010 until you save and


when you create a document in a SP 2010 document library (of a particular content type, by clicking new, letter (content type name) in sharepoint for example) which has default values set on in in the library (set by using library settings -> change default column values), the default values do not show up until you create the document , save it and reopen it again.  Is this a bug or by design.  If it is by design, it is horrible since if some of the column default values are mandatory in the content type then you actually have to type them in before you could possibly save the file which defeats the whole point of having default column values.  Also it is tremendously clunky for a user to have to create file, save it , close it, and reopen it just to view the default metadata in the document information panel that is supposed to be there.

Anyone have any thoughts/solutions to this problem?


Put text from textbox into a word document


I have a form with a few textboxes on it and a button to make a .doc file and I am a bit lost. I'm not sure what would be the best approach for what I want to do. When I click the button, I want the data in the textboxes put into a word file in two columns.

Here is the code I have so far:

#pragma once

namespace testForm {

	using namespace System;
	using namespace System::ComponentModel;
	using namespace System::Collections;
	using namespace System::Windows::Forms;
	using namespace System::Data;
	using namespace System::Drawing;

	/// <summary>
	/// Summary for Form1
	/// </summary>
	public ref class Form1 : public System::Windows::Forms::Form

Inconsistent data with DateTime values in Word Document Library



I am new to SharePoint (2010), and my company has recently migrated a Document Library from a different Content Management System. The Doc. Lib has been set up with Content Types and custom Word (2010) Templates to provide a specific structure to the documents. There is a requirement that the Metadata Columns be embedded into the content of the Word Documents, which we have done. However, we are an international company, so we are spread through several time zones.

Two of the fields in the documents are date-only datetime fields, but these fields must contain non-time zone aware dates. In other words, regardless of which timezone the document was created in or added to SharePoint, all users world-wide must see the same date.

When we create the documents by using the "New Document" menu in SharePoint, and fill in the Document Information Panel in Word, the dates work as required. However, if we use the "Upload Document" option, and then fill in the properties in the Default Edit List window, then the dates are time-zone aware, and users in an earlier (further west) time zone see the date as one day earlier.

After some investigation, it seems that Word stores the dates in the format yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ssz, with no offset information, and SharePoint then doesn't apply an offset when displaying/storing the data. However, when

External Data Fields in a Word Template saved as a content type in a document library with multiple


I have created a Word Template for a Document Library that has an External Data Column in it of Client Name which also adds Client Address1, Client Address2, Client City, Client State, & Client Zip.  Now this works fine for a Document library with that template as the Template.dotx file. 

I want to be able to make a bunch of Templates and have them all as Content Types in one Library.  When I do this I cannot get the External Data Quick Parts to work.

Anyone have any ideas?

Kindly suggest how can I achieve that.
