Unexpected end of file looking for tag in customized form

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 28, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint



I've created a custom list and have customized the NewForm by clicking "New from existing" and inserting the Custom list form. If I load it in the browser it works fine. I then delete a couple of rows and combine another - no major changes, really.  I save the form, then when I load it in the browser I get " Unexpected end of file looking for </ZoneTemplate> tag."  The perplexing thing here is that if I search in the code for </ZoneTemplate>, I find it!  I also find only one <ZoneTemplate>.  Can anyone tell me what is going on here?

Insert image into Infopath form and save to SharePoint as PDF file


I have an InfoPath web-enabled form in MOSS 2007, that is integrated with a K2 blackpoint process for an approval workflow.

Once the form (a Purchase Order request form) has been approved in the K2 workflow process, I switch the form view to a "print-friendly" view for the requestor to view from the browser.  However, now I need to go one step further with this scenario:

1) I need to somehow insert/embed an image with the scanned-in signature of the approver (likely stored in a SP doc library) at the signature line section of my form.  Also, what are the security requirements for storing such images, but not granting all users access to these (e.g. only services accounts that need to access this for embedding into the form, etc.)?

2) Then I need to convert this final "print-friendly" view of the form (with the signature image) to a PDF document so that I can store it in SharePoint (and email it to the requestor using K2's email event capabilities).

Can anyone help me with a solution to both of these requirement, or point me to some resources for this (even 3rd party components are open-game).

There has been an error while loading the form - The following file is not a valid InfoPath form tem



We’re experiencing quite an odd issue with opening forms within a SharePoint form library. These are the symptoms;

We recently published a newer version of an InfoPath form, and have since received some feedback that the form no longer opens in the “View Properties” view of SharePoint.

Rather interesting though, within the standard view all form instances can be opened with no problem.

The reason this has to work within the “View Properties” view of SharePoint is because we have a workflow that is sent, with a link to this particular page.

This is the error message that is displayed;

Infopath 2007 form error - Selected file is too large


We are using Inforpath form to capture some metadata along with couple of file attachments. We implemented that and its working fine

When we tested by trying to upload file more than 5 MB we got the following error

"The selected file is too large and is causing the form to exceed the amount of allowable resources. Select Another File"

During its analysis we found that this can be resolved by changing one of the "Infopath forms service " configuration named "Maximum size of form session state".

Is there any issue (like performance issues) in increasing this limit to allow us to upload the large attachment


In other words

In the Maximum size of form session state text box, type the maximum session state size in kilobytes. Form-filling sessions that exceed this value will terminate, an error message will be generated, and all form data entered during the session will be lost. The default value is 4096 kilobytes.

If I make this value to 10240 kilobytes (10 MB) ; will this cause any performance issues ??

Attach File causing JavaScript error on Custom Form

Let me first apologize for this fairly large post. I've basically laid out the problem I'm having and then how I solved it initially then what the final problem.  The reason I put all of the steps is because I am open to any suggestions about handling this different.  If you want to skip to the actual problem, scroll down until you see the text "-----Go here if you want to see the actual problem-----"

Okay, so now the problem:
I have a lookup field called Room Name in a calendar that is looking data up from a list of rooms.  I have programmatically set the permissions of the room name list items to only allow members of different groups to see certain items.

When people go to the calendar and create a new event, they can only choose rooms that I set their group as having permission to choose.  This works great, but it has an unfortunate side effect.  When viewing an event on the calendar, if you are not of a memeber of the group that has read permissions for the item selected in Room Name, you can't see it.  This makes sense internally because of the way I set permissions.  For each item in the list of rooms, if you are a member of a group that should be able to read that item, I give you read permission, otherwise you have no permission for it.

Unfortunately, the viewing of the events is done by people other than those who create the

Migrating Access 2007 db to SQL Server 2005. Things go fine until it attempts to connect to SQL Server, then I get this:

"An unexpected error occurred. Please send the log file to product support.
For more information, see "Getting SSMA Assistance" in the product documentation.

I have no idea where this log file is as I'm running this on a Windows 7 machine. A search of the entire C drive yields nothing.

I'm using VIC-WIN7\SQLEXPRESS for the Server Name which is what is used in SQL Server 2005 Management Studio Express.


Thank you very much
