Infopath Template Deployment Locking Existing Records

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 27, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint



We are currently using SharePoint Server 2007 and have multiple InfoPath lists configured and one workflow tasks list. We have workflows configured for these InfoPath lists using Visual Studio to design these workflows and use InfoPath forms as the main document. After using the workflow items for a while we have changed and upgraded the workflow for the last year. The issue came when we tried to upgrade to the third version we designed.




We have two InfoPath lists in SharePoint that have identical form templates. In both lists there are around 3000-3100 InfoPath forms give or take. I modified the template to accommodate some new fields and promoted additional fields but did not go over the

Overwriting Existing InfoPath 2003 Forms



I'm having a big problem in my Sharepoint Environment.

So far I've created a form in InfoPath 2003 and successfully published it to a Form Library. It's also submitting correctly (at least at first).

Now after I added a couple forms, let's say three forms with unique file names, and then I open the second one, make a change and submit it again, it disappears from the "All Items" list. I can still see it sitting in the "Explorer View", but it's missing in the other. Now when I try to "Fill out a new Form", it either won't show up in the list or it will show up but with the column fields that have been populated previously.

We're using WSS 2.0 and InfoPath 2003.

I used this guide to create the unique filenames: http://www.codeproject.com/KB/sharepoint/SharePointSubmitInfoPath.aspx

In my view, the issue lies in trying to overwrite existing files and not appearing in the list.

Any help is much appreciated !!!


Thanks in advance.

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

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. I checked InfoPath Form Services, everything seems to be good. What should I do to publish SharePoint list from InfoPath 2010 to SharePoint 2010 as browser enabled form?

InfoPath Deployment as a Feature

My problem is as follows:  We have a custom content type called eForm that inherits from Form. I have a browser based InfoPath form with code behind that needs to be deployed as a feature AND needs to inherit from eForm The content type deploys properly and inherits as expected when I try to launch the form in the browser the client opens and eventually says it can't find the template  I wondering if this is even possible as SharePoint will deploy the form as a content type anyway.  Thanks so much for any help!   Jason My feature.xml file looks like this: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?> <   Feature xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/"     Id="2143d033-8aa5-41be-8c62-75f94be6d9b1"     Title="ROW.InfoPath.PublishingRequisition"     Description="Deploys the Corporate Publishing Requisition Content Type and InfoPath form template"     Version=""     Scope="Site"     DefaultResourceFile="ipfscore"     ReceiverClass="Microsoft.Office.InfoPath.Server.Administration.XsnFeatureReceiver"     ReceiverAssembly="Microsoft.Office.InfoPath.Server, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429

InfoPath / ActiveX error when using person selector field in Word template off SharePoint document l

I have created an out-of-the-box document library on a SharePoint 2010 site.  I left Microsoft Word Document selected as the Document Template.  I then added a person or group column and a multiple lines of text column to the document library. I then went into Library Settings --> Advanced Settings and clicked on Edit Template, opening the template in Word.  I created my template and added the two new columns to the document.  I did this using the Quick Parts --> Document Property --> [column name] feature under the Insert tab in Word.  I then saved the template back to SharePoint. Upon opening the template or creating a new document from the template, I get the following dialog box: --------------------------- Microsoft Office InfoPath --------------------------- One or more ActiveX controls could not be displayed because either: 1) Your current security settings prohibit running ActiveX controls on this page, or 2) You have blocked a publisher of one of the controls. As a result, the page might not display correctly. --------------------------- OK   --------------------------- I've searched around (I believe fairly extensively) and have not run into anyone else with the same issue.  Some have mentioned a similar error when creating a custom document information panel in InfoPath, and suggested lowered ActiveX security setti

Deploy infopath 2010 form template to MOSS (saved as Infopath2007 format)

I saw this post on another site and this happened to me as well.  I am trying to create a web form with controls, chose WebForms for Infopath2007 and changed the code to C# for Infopath 2007 and tried to deploy the form to the Infopath forms solution in Central Admin and was unable to do so.  any suggestions? 


I have an interesting issue while deploying a VSTO enabled form today. For

some odd reason while performing stsadm -o verifyformtemplate -filename

foobar.xsn, it returned a "FatalError : The form cannot be converted because

it was designed for a later version of InfoPath Forms Services.".

Has anyone else tried deploying a InfoPath 2010 form with managed code in a

MOSS environment?? I'd hate to go back to InfoPath 2007, I love the new

ribbon. :D

infopath template on wss2.0 sharepoint site has been deleted - how to open infopath forms?


Hi All

Is there any way to open infopath forms (from a sharepoint site) if the template has been removed?

I have a case where infopath forms (xml files) have been saved to a sharepoint site, but the templates (xsn files) have been deleted.

Some users are still able to open the infopath forms and I'm guessing it is because the templates are cached on their workstations.

The problem obviously comes into play when a new user or user with a new workstation tries to open the infopath forms.

Any ideas how these files could be opened?

Adding XML doc template to existing code

Hi Everyone,
    I would like to know if there is any tool that can add XML documentation templates to a source code.  Basically, I want to add XML documents to new source code. The existing source does not have XML documentation for existing classes, so when I add XML documentation to new class, I get compilation error indicating no XML documentation for old classes.  Is there a tool that is available that can parse the source code and then add XML doc templates ?

For example,
If I have the following code:
