PDF form as Content Type for SharePoint Document Library

Posted By:      Posted Date: November 16, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

Is there any way to use PDF form (.pdf)  template as Content type for document library??

I have a pdf form template and i want to make a content type of it, so i can use it for my Document Library. I defined a new content type of it with following settings:

Select Parent Content From dropdown: Special Content Types,
    Parent Content Type Dropdown: Unknown Document Type

Under Advance Settings i uploaded the pdf form template to server. Under Document Library Settings I add this content type to it, now when i click NEW button it gives me an error message saying:

"The Document couldn't be created. The required application may not be installed properly, or the template for this document library can't be opened"


Seems like SharePoint doesn't integrate with or support Adobe Reader to open PDF form as Content Type or I am missing something there (for example: dll ).

I would really appreciate if you help me on this. Thanks

URGENT: Document Library Content Type not inheriting some fields from parent Site Content Type

  

I have a situation that has foxed me!! I have a site level content type that has 8 fields... I use this to create more content types at the site level and use these in multiple Document Libraries (I have 40 doc libs).  This works fine for 38 of the libraries.  But for 2 of them... 2 of the columns are not showing up on the document libraries.  These are user lookups fields.  I am not sure why it's not working in these libraries only!  When I use the same content type in another library... the inheritance does not break for these fields!

Anyone please provide some guidance on this?  I am using WSS 3.0 and SPD to do workflows.

On another note... the content type has a template (in excel) attached to it.  When I create the content manually using the content type from the New menu option, the template is used... however, when I try to add it using an SPD workflow, it creates a blank template... the content type template is not being used.

Please help... I am in a fix and need to release this application today!!!


InfoPath 2007 Form Content Type does not save as infopath form but as xml document.

  

I have a couple of infopath forms deployed to sharepoint as content types. Normally, when a user creates a new document of an infopath content type, the form opens in browser mode and ,when the user fills in the form and saves the form, a new document is created in the document library with the correct icon and progid.

This was before... Now, whenever I save a form, the form submits correctly, i see the file in de document library, BUT it has the icon of an XML document, all the infopath functionality is gone and when I click the file, I get a save as dialog...

The form itself hasn't changed that much and even when I redeploy a version that worked before it still does not work. However, when I create a new doc lib and associate the malfunctioning form there, the behavior is normal and i can still reopen the saved form.

 

Little sidenote: I have 7 different forms that now do not work on my test machine. It used to be only one, but after redeploying them, all of them have the same problem. Now when I deployed these forms in a production environement, the same thing started happening there. So I stopped the deployment and in production there is just the newly deployed form that does not work.

I have already tried reassociating the form to the doc lib. And everything looks normal in central administration.

Any suggestions?

Adding New Custom Folder Content Type doesn't show up on the Document Library New Menu

  

I been trying to add new custom folder content type to the document library programatically in my sandbox environment and it does show up on the document library. But, when I move same code to the almost similar configured SP2010 environment, adding new folder content type to the document library doesn't show up on the document library's new menu.

Here is the code? Since this code works fine in my sandbox environment, is there any other settings I should check on the server environment which would cause hiding content type on new menu of document library.

  class Program
  {
    static void Main(string[] args)
    {
      SPSite spSite = new SPSite("http://sp2010vm");
      foreach (SPWeb spWeb in spSite.AllWebs)
      {
        spWeb.AllowUnsafeUpdates = true;

        //For each site, cycle through lists
        bool isDocLibraryExists = false;
	      foreach(SPList spList in spWeb.Lists)
	      {
          if(spList.Title == "Classified Documents")
		      {
             isDocLibraryExists = true; 
          }
        }
      
        if(isDocLibraryExists == true)
        {
          //Create new doc library
          SPList splist = spWeb.Lists["Classified Documents"];

          //Create Content Type
          SPContentType documentContentType = spWeb.AvailableContentTypes["Classified Documents Folder"

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?

Hi,

I am a sharepoint developer and currently I am trying to save content of a text box from client side in document library in share point 2010. I have created a sandbox solution for this. I explored the SP2010 client side object model for ECMA script, however I was not able to crack the problem.

Kindly suggest how can I achieve that.

Custom document library list template issues with custom content type

  

Either I don't know what SharePoint is doing or I don't know what I'm doing (or both, which is more likely).

I'm attempting to create a Custom Document Library template with a custom content type association (Custom Document), all using a feature. When I create
a document library based on the installed template, the content type association is there. However, when I click on New Custom Document, the template.dotx does not reflect the Custom Document content type association. The Word document information panel does not show any Custom Document content type properties (like Title and Comments).

Here are the steps I've taken:

1. Create the feature.xml with element manifests of contentType.xml and CustomDocumentLibrary.xml
2. Create the contentType.xml (Custom Document) with an additional field reference for Comments
3. Create the CustomDocumentLibrary.xml for the list template
4. Create a Custom Document Library subfolder that contains the same files that are in the 12\TEMPLATE\FEATURES\DocumentLibrary\doclib folder.
5. Edit the schema.xml to use the new content type and field reference
6. Deploy and activate the feature
7. Create a new "Custom Document Library"
8. Go to Custom Document Library Settings and verify the Custom Document content type is being used
9. Click on New Custom D

Document Library/Content Type Planning

  

Im in the process of moving a network drives content to a new document library.

The network contains all our IT Sarbanes Oxley documentation/checks

 

What im struggling with is how to plan the document library.

Should I create a team site for this network drive and have multiple document libraries?
Or should I create just one document library?

What im struggling with is how to plan andocument library.

 

for example,
currently every morning a member of staff completes a check of server backups.
They modify an Excel spreadsheet which contains a row for each site/server and a column for each day.
This Document is located at O:\IT Procedures Policies & Controls\Controls\KC202 - Monitor Backups
Every month a new Spreadsheet is started which is based on a template.

My first idea was to create a content type for this check called 'KC202' as a template can be assigned then each month the user just needs to hit the dropdown button and then 'new KC202'.
the problem with this is we have 37 folders within 'Controls' ranging from KC000 to KC507 all of which will need template documents (each being Unique)

Then I thought the best idea would be to have a content type for 'Controls' with metadata for the 'KC' number. Whenever a new document is created the user can

How to restrict access to a SharePoint Document Form Library while allowing users to fill out and su

  

We have created a MS InfoPath form with it's corrsponding SharePoint Document Form Library, but would like to restrict the access to the SharePoint Document Form Library. After the user completes and submits the forms then he/she should not be able to go into the SharePoint Document Form Library and view the form. In order to allow users to fill out and submit an InfoPath form, Contributor level access is required to be granted. But Contributor level access allows them to view not only the form he/she has created but everyone else's which is not acceptable in this particluar situation. The solution we've come up with is to grant Contributor access to the SharePoint Document Form Library when the Submit button is pressed using stsadm grant the user Contibutor role. Then remove the access once the submission is completed.

We would be interested to know if there is a better process to accomplish this task. And, of equal importance, the coding that is required to execute this task.
