Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010 include a new set of components called Application Services. These put a rich set of tools in a developer's bag for Office automation. We'll show you how to use Office OpenXML, Word Automation Services and SharePoint to build a simple application that merges separate status reports into a single document.

Subject is the question.
My requirements are to "maintain existing functionality with current version of a windows service running on Server 2003 and automating Word through COM." I.E. All the stuff that breaks when you upgrade the OS to Server 2008.
My customer has already rejected several third party alternatives as "not being accurate enough" The rendered PDF doesn't match what comes out of Word when compared with an electron microscope.
So now I'm investigating using Word Automation Services and Sharepoint 2010. Got my development server functional with Sharepoint 2010 and Visual Studio 2010. But my first attempts at creating rendering jobs is failing with an "ArgumentNullException"
in deep inside a method I'm 100.0% sure I'm NOT passing any NULL's to.
My VM is low on space so I figure I'd save time by asking for a conclusive answer before I make room / install Office.
Hi to all,
I've an environment that includes 3 machines: the sp2010 frontend (W2K8 R2), the sp2010 backend (SQL2008 R2), the analysis services backend (SQL2008 R2).
I've successfully setup my environment with Kerberos constrained delegation and the entire thing works fine with both performancepoint and excel services (the requirement was to pass the user's domain identity to the analysis backend): thanks to the
excellent SP2010 Kerberos Guide.
Now I've extended this portal to the Extranet zone, assigned it a new host header and upgraded my SPNs to include the new fqdn and also added it to the necessary accounts in Active Directory.
In the intranet environment everything is fine. I've published the Sharepoint site to the external network onto the ISA 2006 and setup the Kerberos constrained delegation from the isa computer account to the Sharepoint SPN.
So here is the point: I can correctly access the Sharepoint site from external with Kerberos authentication, performancepoint is fine but I cannot open excel workbooks from this zone, I already trusted both the file and the data connection locations with
the external fqdn but still no luck. Even the sample workbook does not open. The error is "error while trying to execute the requested action. Retry".
Anyone has any hint on the possible causes?
