Word save file on SharePoint via mapped drive

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

Hi, I have a Document Library mapped to a drive letter. I am able to browse the drive through Windows Explorer. However when I try to save a document to the drive Word returns, 'Unable to connect to the Web server.' .  I have been unable to find any information regarding this error message. If I try to create a document in the Document Library through Windows Explorer and the mapped drive, I get a different error message: 'Unable to create the file 'New Microsoft Office Word Document.docx' There is no user session key for the specified logon session.' After I click OKand refresh the directory, a 0 KB New Microsoft Word Document.docx file has been created. When that file is opened, it is in Read-Only mode.


Windows Server 2003 R2
Webclient service started

IE configured through the sign in application
site added to the trusted sites in IE

Thank you again for your input.

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).

Opening a MS Word File and setting the save location



I have an ASP intranet site which opens word documents from a shared network drive (link is stored in a DB).  When the user then goes to save the document, it points the user to their default location - say C:\myprofile\my documents.  How can i get it so that the user can just click on save and it saves it in the location it got the file from?  I am using the following code to grab the document:

Response.AddHeader("Content-disposition", "attachment; filename=" & docfilename)
Response.ContentType = "application/vnd.ms-word"

If i navigate through the network share manually through windows, open the document and click save - it will save it to the right location.


How to enable Word 2010 to save to one of the document libraries on a newly installed Sharepoint Ser



I have a newly installed Sharepoint Server 2010 (say, http://spserver/) somewhere on our LAN on Windows Server 2008 R2. And I am working with Word 2010 on my Windows 7 machine. I have created a Document library somewhere in a subsite of the Sharepoint server (say, http://spserver/subsite/doclibrary)

Now, working with Word 2010 I want to simply save the document that I'm working into that document library Doclibrary. I go to Word 2010 backstage... and can't find anything there.

1) Save As? It only shows my file system...

2) Save & Send? I see there Save to Sharepoint. But Browse for Location button gives me nothing. If I press Save As here, I just get my file system again.

What should I configure on Sharepoint server or in my machine, so that I can save to my doclibrary with as few clicks as possible, just like I always did with my local file system.

Kindly suggest how can I achieve that.

Word 2010 Crashes When Trying to Open/Download File From SharePoint 2010 Using IE8



I'm trying to find a solution to an issue I'm having with Word 2010/SharePoint 2010/ and IE 8 working (or rather not working) together.

I'm using Windows XP, and I have recently upgraded from Office 2007 to Office Pro 2010, in doing so, I can no longer open Word 2010 .doc or .docx files via our SharePoint site using IE8.  I can however, open these files without a problem using Chrome and Safari.  I would prefer to use IE8, as it provides better functionality in other areas for SP.

I have tried the following:

  • Unistall/Re-install of SharePoint Designer, IE8 and Office Pro 2010.
  • Ran the repair and config on Office 2010
  • Reset the IE security settings.
  • Unchecked the "automatically detect settings" box under the LAN connections.
  • Added our SP site to Trusted Sites
  • Disabled each view under Protected View in Word Options Trust Center.
  • Checked the Save settings under Word Options Save.

 - all steps either together or separate to no avail!

For a bit more detail - here's the error I'm receiving:
"Microsoft Word has encounted a problem and needs to close.  We are sorry for the inconvenience."
AppName: winword.exe      AppVer: 14.0.4734.1000     AppStamp:4b58fb0e<

Upload a File to a SharePoint Document Library - Part I

The following helper class demonstrates a few techniques that allow documents to be uploaded to a SharePoint document library programmatically without using the API or a custom web service. You don't need to specify a document library name, and it will create any folders specified in the URL as required. File meta data will be updated if any properties are passed.

ClientAccessPolicy file in SharePoint 2010

I am upgrading my Silverlight demo code from the old beta to beta 2 and see that there are a few new considerations for the deployment of ClientAccessPolicy.xml files. In a previous post I demonstrated how to do this for SharePoint 2007. The heartburn that I get with that approach is any site collection owner or designer can drag the file into the site collection and open the site up to unwanted client access issues. In 2010 the virtual path provider no longer serves the files from the root of the site collection
