Users with permissions cant open or edit form - "The form has been closed"

Posted By:      Posted Date: December 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Dear All,

I am facing this unique problem. Some users in my company's SharePoint portal network despite user permissions, cant open their previous forms or add a new form. Just for testing I also tried giving one of the users full rights, but the problem persists. I am using infopath web based forms.

Following is the error when the user opens up a form:

" Form has been closed"

Upon checking the SharePoint error logs. I found following error message

The form template failed to load. (User: Litware\max.steve, Form Name: Expense, IP": , Request: http://portal/_layouts/FormServer.aspx?XsnLocation=http://portal/hr/Expense/Forms/template.xsn&SaveLocation=http://portal/hr/Expense&Source=http://port

Permissions to edit a Infopath form

Hi, I have a requirement where a group of users should be able to edit the Infopath form and submit that into the FormsLibrary. But at the same time they should not be able to edit the properties of the Item. If i remove contribute permissions they are not able to Edit the Properties but at the same time they are not able to edit the infopath form. Please let me know the approach how to go about. Your suggestions are much valuable now     Sreeharsha Alagani

How to properly configure permissions so users can view, add, edit, and delete list items, but not w

I am trying to figure out how to properly setup security so that it can be configured at the top-level, and then inherited all the way through. Here is what I would like to do: Each user can view, add, edit, and delete list items - but, users cannot modify or delete web part pages. The only way I know how to do this is set Contribute from the top-down, and then go into each Site Pages library and set Read access. The problem is that I have 100 sites, and I was hoping there was a way I could set security at the top, and inherit downward. Rather than having to go into all 100 Site Pages library and set Read access. Is there a way to do this? Thanks in advance.

Show ALL documents in search result, but only allow users with proper permissions to open


I am trying to set up a site with multiple document libraries with permissions for different groups of users. When users search for a document, I want them to be able to see ALL documents that match the criteria, even if they do not have permission to view the library, however, they should not be able to open the documents for which they dont have read permissions.

Please advise on how to set this up

Users who do not have permissions to access InfoPath 2007 web based form can view the form if someon


I have a SharePoint Form Library with an InfoPath form published to the form as the default template. The form library has several forms in it that have line item permissions. This is supposed to restrict who can view the form. If the user who has had their permissions removed navigates to the form through SharePoint the form does not display (this is expected behavior). However if the user is provided a link to the URL for the form then the can view the InfoPath form.

Here is an example of the link: http://moss.companyname.com/test/_layouts/FormServer.aspx?XmlLocation=/test/InfoPath%20Test/system2009-10-23T12_23_13.xml&Source=http%3A%2F%2Fmoss%2Ecompanyname%2Ecom%2Ftest%2FInfoPath%2520Test%2FForms%2FAllItems%2Easpx&DefaultItemOpen=1

In addition I tried to put the forms into a folder and restirct the permissions on the folder, but the restricted users can still view the form.

When I removed the users permission to the form library then they got an error message.

I also tested this with a SharePoint list item and restricted permissions and this did not allow the user to view the item.


Open a list item edit form with workflow

I have a workflow that creates a new item in another list.  I need the workflow to open the new item on the Edit form.  Is this possible?  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.

Users can not open a form


    MOSS 2007
    InfoPath 2007

    Site Collection Administrator

I have created an InfoPath form that retrieves two lists from SharePoint (list of users, and list of training sessions); these are two Data Connections set to "Retrieve".

I have a third Data Connection that is set to "Submit".  This submits several of the InfoPath fields to the SharePoint Document Library, as well as the completed form.  The InfoPath form is published to this document library, so when users choose "New" in the document library, the InfoPath template (form) will appear, to allow the user to complete the form.

I can open the form, complete it, and submit it.  No problem.

Other users cannot open the form.  They are getting prompted for User Name and Password.  If they cancel out of that, and the next popup (about working offline), the InfoPath form will appear without any data connections.  The User Name/Password error refers to the _vti_bin\lists.asmx.

Users have Contribute rights to the document library.

Anyone have any ideas to get this form to open for the users?  If more details are needed, please just ask for what you would like to know.


Thank you,

SharePoint Moss2007 - Permissions for Issue Tracker. Want users to Edit but not Delete


I have a issue tracker list setup and I've got custom permission group which is basically the same as the standard Contribute group except with Delete removed. However using this custom group users don't get the Edit button on the List Items to then be able to go in and change. When I add the delete permission to the group they can then go in - but can then obviously delete which I don't want them to be able to do.

Anyone got a solution for this?


Moved from WinXP to Win7 - don't see choice to open file in read only or edit mode


I just recently moved from Win XP Pro SP3 to Win 7 32-bit Pro. I am logging into domain X normally. Our Sharepoint 2007 server authenticates only on domain Y. So I start Internet Explorer with "run as different user" and provide my domain Y credentials. All fine. 

In win XP, after I did this, when I click on an Excel file on Sharepoint, I would get a dialog asking if I wanted to check out and edit or open as read only. 

In win7, I don't get that choice. The file simply opens, and I get a bar at the top which allows me to check out the file if I wanted to. 

How can I restore the functionality I used to have, with the dialog for checking out the file before opening it?

Customized list views and permissions to specific group users

Hi, I have created a custom list with 20 field/columns in wss3.0. I had four user groups(group1, group2,....3.....4) in my site collection with various levels of permissions. I have created four custom views (Group 1 view, Group2 view,...etc)in my list. Each view contains only certain fields out of 20. For example group 1 view contains field 1, 5, 7,10 and 13 of every item in my list.  My requirement is that when a user login, who is a member of group1. he should be able to view only Group1 view fields. He should not able to view other field/columns. I tried creating another field/column called as restricted users and wrote group names in that. In the View edit page I selected " show item when the column 'restricted users' is equl to [Me]. But I did not get it. Kindly help it out any one either programmatically or UI based. Thanks   

How to allow anyone to see the data, but only logged in users to edit it?

Hello,Don't know if this is documented anywhere, but I haven't found it yet.Let's say I want to allow anyone visiting a site to see the data. That's fairly easy as DD does this for you.However, I don't want just anyone to be able to edit the data. I only want selected people to be able to do that. I presume DD works with forms authentication as I've seen it mentioned, but I ahven't seen how to do it yet. Anyone able to give some pointers?Assuming that I've got authentication, how do I make it so that the public doesn't see an edit or delete link when viewing data?Thanks for any help

"Only their own" allows users to edit, then shows access denied page

I am managing a WSS 3.0 portal.  I have created custom lists where a group has contribute permissions.  Under List Settings|Advanced Settings, when I set Edit Access to "Only their own" or "None", my test users can see the Edit Icon and the Edit Item menu option, and bring up the Edit Form.  When they click "OK", they get the Access Denied page.  My experience in that past is that they should not even been shown the option to edit, and they should get Access Denied if they somehow navigate to the EditForm.aspx page.  I even tested this on a brand new site, with three Links lists, each with different Edit Access Levels (All, None, Only their own).  I added one user with contribute permissions.  He had the same result: He could get all the way to EditForm.aspx, but got "Access Denied" when he submitted his changes.  What can I do to fix this?Christopher W.
