Root element is missing error AFTER changing the List permission


I have an Infopath form that submits the data onto a SharePoint list. Everything works if the user has 'view, insert, edit, delete' access to the list. However, we dont want them to be able to delete and view the item so we gave this user group only 'insert' access. After doing so, they get the following error message:

The following DataObject either cannot be created or cannot be initialized:
The query cannot be run for the following DataObject: NameOfList
InfoPath cannot run the specified query.
The SOAP response indicates that the error occurred on the server:

Server was unable to process request. ==> The root element is missing. 

Anyone know if there's another way to solve this without granting the user group full access to the List?  I'm not an admin, I just normally request what type of permission to set on our sharepoint sites. 

Thanks for the help

System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapException: SECU1075


I'm not sure if this question is appropriate for this forum.  If not, I apologize and would ask someone to direct me to a forum or community that might be able to help.  I'm very new to the whole C# thing. 

I have designed a console application as a web service client which is able to talk with a webservice.  I converted the console application into a DLL and called the DLL from another C# program and am getting following error message.

SECU1075: An error was discovered processing the <wsse:Security> header | System.Web.Services |    at System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapHttpClientProtocol.ReadResponse(SoapClientMessage message, WebResponse response, Stream responseStream, Boolean asyncCall)
at System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapHttpClientProtocol.Invoke(String methodName, Object[] parameters)...

I'm told that the problem is that the DLL version doesn't know where to find the policycache.config information.  Can anyone tell me how to circumvent this problem?

KrtoPGMSSQLWebServiceClient--is namespace name

ManipDataExportClient--is class name

I want to know that  whether i am getting this error at the time of calling web service or while accessing web service and why.

Plzzzz help me solve this...

SSRS 2008 System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapException


Hello All,

  I am having difficulties configuring reports to run on my web server. I have a web server that sits in the DMZ and a SQL server and SSRS server that sit behind the firewall. From the WFE I can browse to the report server and run reports but through the web application I receive an error. On our staging environment the reports work and I have compared the two environment and everything seems to be configured the same but cannot find the cause of the problem. Any help on what troubleshooting steps I could take would be appreciated.

SENS: System Event Notification Services and WMI Enable Flexible, Efficient Mobile Network Computing


Networked applications must deal with a host of connection problems ranging from timeouts to congestion to unavailability. If these applications can check the current connection status and, when disconnected, cache transmissions, they become more efficient. Fortunately, both the System Event Notification System (SENS) and Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) can send notifications to keep applications informed of network status. In this article, the author explains the use of several SENS interfaces, including ISensNetwork and ISensLogon, which trigger events for connects/disconnects and logons/logoffs, respectively. The author then shows how you can subscribe to each of these events, and follows with a discussion of when you might use WMI events instead.

XmlSerializer - how to define class to not generate attributes in root element?

Hi! I have simple class that I serialize to xml file: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <MyRootElement xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" Area="East">   <Products>     <SalesProduct Taxable="true">       <Name>Sofa</Name>     </SalesProduct>     <Product>       <Name>Television</Name>     </Product>   </Products> </MyRootElement> I don`t want have in xml file attributes xmlns:xsi and xmlns:xsd. How can I define class to not have these two attributes in xml file? I tried use XmlRoot attribute but there is no control for these two attributes. They are always generated. Regards

Root Element

Hi all, I decided to post in this forum as it doesn't directly relate to others...being a user-end question. I have a network of equally configured XP computers, and one Vista computer. For some reason, accessing certain ASP.NET sites on the Vista computer has just started getting server exceptions "Root element is missing". Normally I would write this off as a plain server-side error and wait for it to be fixed. However, the exception only occurs from one machine. All other machines load just fine. Caches are clear, computer rebooted, no malware or any non-default windows services running, etc. (Pure client/office machines)Any ASP.NET gurus know why this might be? Or how to fix it? Could it stem from an SSL cert/verification issue? (The error sites are using SSL).Thanks for your insight.

system.runtime.serialization 3.0 missing

Trying to install an app that apparently needs system.runtime.serialization 3.0 installed. I tried downloading the 3.0 framework and installing that - but it wont let me install it. Says i need to install that through the role management tool. This is on a win2k8 r2 web server. Also need system.IdentityModel 3.0  - might need others as well, not sure. So whats the correct way to get this on there? thanks

How do I parse/serialize when parent list element is missing?

First thank you ahead of time for you help. I really need some help with this. Background, this is to be a REST service in .net 4.0 and I understand I have to use xmlserializer instead of datacontract serializer. The xsd and the generated class assumes there can be one or more geo locations in a Locations element. However, based on an unchangable requirement, I have to assume the parent Locations element may not be there and the xml can contain only one child location element. So instead of <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <findService   xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:lost1"   xmlns:p2="http://www.opengis.net/gml"   serviceBoundary="value"   recursive="true"> <Locations>   <location id="12334456" profile="geodetic-2d">     <p2:Point id="point1" srsName="urn:ogc:def:crs:EPSG::4326">       <p2:pos>40.85614955747385 -73.77044677734375</p2:pos>     </p2:Point>   </location> </Locations>   <service>urn:service:sos</service> </findService> they can send the following instead <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <findService   xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:lost1&

Analysis Services Using Oracle as a Data Source Data Types mismatch System.Int32 and System.Int64

Hi everyone, I searched for this issue but there is only 4 questions about it in this forum from 2007 I hope that someone can help me. Im usign SASS 2008 using a Oracle as a datasource.  I already have my fact tables linked with dimensions, lets say, FACTID System.Int64 with DIMENSIONID System.Int64 (My dimensions are replaced by named querys and work perfectly) I add a new table to my DSV and the NEWDIMENSIONID looks like System.Int64, but at the moment I replace the table with a named query (I have to use Oracle quering) the NEWDIMENSIONID changes to System.Int32 .  After that I cant relate the fact table with the dimension table. Actions: Looked for the columns that relate from Oracle... both are NUMBER(5). Looked for the differences between my other tables that are already related as System.Int64 and there is not a single difference between the ones that works and the one who doesnt. Solutions Ive tried and didnt work: 1. Cast the column as SQL query didnt work it send an error.  Looks kind of obvious because we are quering Oracle... but I had to try.  CAST( X AS BIGINT) 2. Cast the column as Oracle query . TO_NUMBER 3. Do it inside the server using the Analysis Services Enterprise insted of my Analysis Services Developer. Same issue.   Any ideas? suggestions?   Please? Thank you very much ;) Sincerly Adriana L. PS. At the begging of

In Reporting Services: Request for the permission of type 'System.Data.SqlClient.SqlClientPermissio

Hello all,In Reporting Services through http://myserver/mydbinstance/Pages/Report.aspx blah de blah blah, I get this error:Request for the permission of type 'System.Data.SqlClient.SqlClientPermission, System.Data, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089' failed.Actually, the report runs just fine, but some fields had the famous #Error in them. I put some old fashioned debug in my report to TRY, CATCH, END TRY and get the problem to the report so that I could see this report finally run in production. Yes, it runs just fine in VS2005. I have custom code in the report code window that does its own custom connection to an SQL database through "System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection" and "System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand" to pull in data that is not part of any of the datasources in the report. When I execute the report through the Report Manager or Report site under IIS, the report will run, but I get these errors in every field that uses functions to populate the data.I have searched the web for 3 days now, and the best answers involve using either CASPOL or the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 Configuration wizard in Administrative Tools on the server. (I understand that the wizard does the same thing as CASPOL, just through a GUI.) I have followed those steps, but still get the error.I do not know what I need to do to make these DLLs th
