I am having an issue with my EditForm.aspx on a Form library.

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


I am having an issue with my EditForm.aspx on a Form library.My problem is that when I make a change to a record and click save the infopath form associated with that edit form is popping up. I am not able to figure out why this form is popping up

The edit form link is auto generated from workflow which is in below format

https://yourserver/sites/SiteName/Form library Name/Forms/EditForm.aspx?ID=272.

Can any one please help me to stop the infopath form to pop up when an record is edited.

Thank you.

Merge Upload form and editform in Document library upload document



I have a document library.  When the user click on the upload, I want to display an entry form that have: Name, description, keywords and file with the browse button. All those fields should be on the same page. 

The problem is that by default when the user click on upload button, it get redirected to _layouts/Upload.aspx which ask the user to browse for the document, when he click ok, it is redirected to Forms/EditForm.aspx to provide the Name, description and keywords field. 

My client do not want to have two pages, he just want to enter and upload the file all in one page.

Any ideas how can I accomplish this?

Thank you,

How to redirect to EditForm.aspx form after uploaded multiple files in SharePoint 2007


Hi all,

In the document library of SP2007, when we uploaded a single file then it will redirect us to EditForm.aspx to allow us to add some metadata for properties. However, when we used to upload multiple files, it doesn't allow us to do that. I would like to redirect to EditForm.aspx after I uploaded multiple files to manipulate something such as changing Title of per file item before back to AllItems.aspx page view. Anyone know a solution to solve it please give me an advise.

Thank you very very much!

Issue in Infopath 2007 browser form - cascading dropdown using owssvr.dll filter view


Referring the below link, I created a cascading dropdown. The parent dropdown has sharepoint list as datasource and the child dropdown has xml datasource that points to owssvr.dll filter view. The cascading drop down works fine in preview but throws error after publishing as admin approved form - "form cannot run the specified query" exception when trying to execute xml datasource i.e., when a value is selected in parent dropdown. The security is 'Full Trust". In the event viewer the error message states "401 unauthorised" for the user a/c. the xml data source is an approved udcx file and in central admin, have enabled cross domain for infopath service. I have tried different solution provided in tech forums but issue still exists. Not sure whether Im missing something. Can someone guide me in fixing this issue?

Check-out issue when opening a document from a document library when a read-only copy is open

We have an issue when a user has a read-only copy of a document from SharePoint open and then tries to check-out and edit another copy of the document (i.e. from the document library) the checked out copy is not connected to the web server. For the user it will look the same they will make edits, save and then close, but when they do so the document is not updated in SharePoint - it may be saved locally in their SP drafts, but the user will think that they have lost their version. We then get the checked out to another user error and you have to discard changes to get the document working again. Steps to reproduce this issue: * click on the name of a office doc on a Document Library * Make sure "Read Only" is selected and click "ok" * Minimize open document * click on the same file on the Document Library * Make sure "check out and edit" is selected and the "Use my local drafts folder" checkbox is ticked. Select OK. * Edit document and press save. Changes are never saved back in SharePoint, they are only on the local draft. We are using MOSS with SP2. Clients are on Office 2003 and 2007 Is this normal behaviour? Is there anything that can be done to prevent this from happening?

Copy the content of one form library to another form library



I have created a form library named "A" where I store all the info-path forms submitted by a certain group of people. In that form library I created a column "status". When the form is submitted the value of status will be "0". Once a person approves this form I am changing the status value to "1". If the value is changed to "1", that form should be copied or transferred to another form library named "B".

How can I implement this logic ? Any help...

Issue With MOSS 2007 Picture library



We have a MOSS 2007 publishing portal. We are currently facing issues with Picture library created with default picture library template.Whenever we have tried to upload an image to the picture library I am getting "acess denied" error message, though I have full permission to the site level as well as to the library level.I have seen the pictures are getting uploaded and in "checked out" state.It does not show the "edit properties" page on upload and does not even allow the owner of the image to edit the properties, gives the same access denied error message.

I have also tried to check in the image files through the "management and content structure", but the images are not getting checked in. Please let me know the root cause of this and how we can resolve this.





Calculated Columns in a Form Library receive error: Value does not fall within the expected range.


I have a forms library that posts the date the form was created. We would like to create a calculated column that allows us to look at these forms based on the month and year they were created. I had created a calculated column that extracts the month and replaces the number with a text string by using an if statement; "IF(MONTH([Proposal Date])=1,"January","") It goes on to evaluate each month and replace the number with the text string. This formula worked for quite some time, though now when I try to add any calculated columns or edit any existing calculated columns on this form library I receive the following error: Value does not fall within the expected range. Now my existing calculated columns (like the one above) do not work and I can not create new calcualted columns. Any insight would be awesome as this has been plaguing me for a couple of months now.

Custom Editform.aspx crashes Sharepoint Designer

Hi there,

I've recently designed a sharepoint list and customised newform.aspx and editform.aspx. I made copies of the originals then customised the copies.
On both forms I simply:

* Closed original List Form web part
* Added Custom List Form
* Added some section breaks (<tr>) to the form to break it into sections
* Added a new css style to change the background colour on the section breaks (table rows)

Now NewForm.aspx works fine. However after making above changes in EditForm.aspx, I saved it. However whenever I try to reopen EditForm.aspx in Sharepoint Designer (SD), SD crashes! I can only open it in Text view. The error details reported by SD are:

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.
