Can't relink infopath forms to a new template in the form library

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

I have an InfoPath form that has been working fine.  I made a change to the form, turned off printing and republished the form.  I then relinked all forms, or thought I did.  The new forms created work fine.  Most of the ones at the beginning are relinked and working fine.  There are about 228 forms in the middle that won't relink and you can't update them.  If I try to update the properties, it has an invalid link.  If I edit the form and submit it back with the changes, I get the following error message box, but only if I actualy make a change on the form and try to save it.

 

InfoPath cannot save the form
The specified location is not valid, not available, or you do not have the correct permissions
Check the spelling of the file name and verigy that the location is correct, or contact the server administrator.


Is there another way that I can force the relink?  There is also a field that does no populate in the properties.  It won't let me add that metadata.  I have a designer workflow that takes the ID created for a document/item and copies it to the field.  This is then used to create the unique name of the document.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Infopath form and forms library error

  
I've created an InfoPath 2010 form and associated it with a forms library on a SharePoint site. When I go to the library and choose "Add document" the form opens up to be filled out by the user. When the form is filled out, and the user tries to submit, they get an error saying that I need to configure SharePoint to allow cross-domain data access for user form templates that use connection settings in a data connection file and store a UDC file in the same site collection as the form. So I've enabled cross-domain data access and I've already created a Data Collection Library for Forms in the Site that is approved. What am I missing?  Why am I still getting the error?  

Updating an InfoPath Form Library Template breaks preexisting SharePoint List Views

  
When updating an InfoPath template (e.g. adding a new field), any views I have created on the library lose their filters and sorting, as if the columns on which they were built no longer exist.  Has anyone else encountered this and, if so, is there a solution? V/r Noelle

Infopath Form template when used not promoting data to a library view

  

Hi,

 

Have a really strange issue here that I can't figure out and wondered if any of you have had this issue?

Basically we have 5 libraries and the infopath form moves between them and there is consistent promoted fields in all the libraries.

We have 4 forms per lib with all the same properties promoted.

But one of the forms does not seem to show it data in the table view (you can see it in edit form (SP Page)???) for lib 4 (it shows in all the others).

 

I can't determine why this is occuring and what I need to do to fix it.


Building InfoPath forms against Sharepoint 2010 Data Connection Library and Form Services...

  

Hi Sharepoint Experrts,

I'm trying to develop InfoPath 2010 forms that use External Lists that have been created in Sharepoint Server 2010.  I have problems when testing the forms because access is denied to the external lists.

When I try deploying the forms to the sharepoint site, I cannot upload the form template because it says I have to be a member of the local administrators group.  However, I'm running the administrator account used to install and setup sharepoint on the Windows 7 development machine I'm using.

I also tried loading the InfoPath Data Connections to a data connection library on my Sharepoint site... I can see the files when I login to the site but when I try creating a New form from a Data Connection File, I get an error message "This location does not contain any data connection files with the appropriate settings".  What ARE the appropriate settings?

I'm just really confused about this because I cannot seem to be able to build forms that use data connection files loaded onto a Sharepoint site or central server....

I appreciate any help I can get!

 

Thanks,

KBW

Infopath Brower enabled form not visible in the sharepoint library after being submitted

  
Hi, I have created a infopath browser enabled form to submit to a sharepoint form library, however the submitted forms are not visible in the sharepoint link structure.   I'm able to see them in the SPD structure.  I'm using infopath 2007 and MOSS. I actually created a SPD workflow which retrieves specific values from the submitted form and saves it to another sharepoint list. This works fine even if the forms are not visible. Appreciate any help. Thanks

I have set up a template form setup that users can fill out and then by pressing the submit button sends an email.My current issue is, when I publish the form to sharepoint, I don't see it, I have sharepoint set to view all documents and I still don't see it.  I can get to the form by clicking the "view my form in browser" pop up after I'm done publishing it.  I would like the users to just be able to click on a link in the library, but I can't find where it was published.Any insight on this would be great thanks.

Using Workflow to create an InfoPath item in a Forms Library

  
Hi Experts: Here is my situation: I have a MOSS 2007 server with list A (regular sharepoint list) and List B (InfoPath form library with a published form) This is what I am trying to accomplish using SharePoint Designer: List A is just a basic list User changes a column in list A to a specific value A new form needs to be added to the forms library B SharePoint designer Workflow will not create a valid xml file in the List B forms library. It just creates an invalid file based on the .xsn file template. Does anyone have any experience creating a valid xml form in a forms library using SharePoint Designer workflow? I can't migrate to 2010 so that is not an option. Thanks for all your advise.

Cannot publish InfoPath 2010 form template to SharePoint Server 2010 RC

  
Hi all, I am MSFT in Vietnam. I created a SharePoint list using InfoPath 2010 RTM 64bit. After publishing it to SharePoint 2010 RC, I see an error message:  Click on button "Show Details" the message is The list schema does not match the schema of this form. Refresh the data source and publish the form again. When I create new item based on published SharePoint list, I can see plain form not browser enabled InfoPath form.

Creating report from Infopath library/submitted forms

  
Hi, I got a form that has repeating table containg data. The form is submitted to a form library on MOSS 2007 site. Some of the key fields from the form has been promoted to the library, which allows creating views and gives the user a quick report based on the filter. Now, the user wants similar function, however the data is stored in the repeating table. I can use double eval function to combine data from each columns and promote them to the library. But obviously, it doesn't give the user accurate/the kind of report he is looking for using the views. Do you have any suggestion? The only option I can think of is storing each row from repeating table into an Access database or sharepoint list. But that'll also involve making sure correct data is being updated in these secondary data source when updating the form.  Pman http://www.pmansLab.com/

InfoPath 2007 - Publishing Creates multiple columns on SharePoint Form Library (GUIDS apparently are

  
I have been working this issue for 2 days now.  This has happened to me in the past and I was able to work through it.  It doesn't appear that this time I am going to be so lucky. Issue Description: When publishing an InfoPath form a new column is created that has the same name as the correct one, but a new GUID is created. Troubleshooting steps: I have read this article: http://www.delphi-ts.com/blogs/lozzi/post/2009/06/03/Duplicate-site-columns-in-MOSS-from-InfoPath-Forms.aspx   This was the solution the last time I had this problem.  However, no matter what I do, it is not working now.  I have a column named User Name which is the username of the person that submitted the InfoPath form for use with my Visual Studio workflow.  When the workflow kicks off, it reads this column and attempts to get the value.  The value is blank because a new column with the name User Name now exists and that is where the value is stored.  I attempted to fix it by remapping the GUIDs as described in the article.  I also reverted the code to a previous version from TFS.  None of these worked.   I now have 3 columns called User Name and I can remap the GUID to the second column and third column.  But when I try to map it to the first column (the one I need) it doesn't work. The first column that is circled is the correct column. 

Infopath 2007: Cant we fetch data from a list or form library without using a Query to the data conn

  
I am trying to fetch data from a form library and a list (both secondary data sources). But cant do it without using a rule (Query using a data connection). However when I use the 'Refresh' control on the form it brings the value. I find it quite weird, as the connections are made properly and logically speaking all the data connetions should fetch dynamic data once the form opens or loads. Cant we do it without using a (data query) rule? Update: I am using a web based infopath forms, while using the same form on client its working fine. Why is that?
