How to read a column of a sharepoint list to a text string field of infopath form?

  
My infopath form used to read these email addresses from a web service and web.config file. Now i would like to get these user email addresses from a contact list in a sharepoint server. I am trying to do this without writing any codes. Here is what i have done so far: 1. Adding a new "data connection to receive data from SharePoint library or List" where i selected Email Address column of the contact list. 2. I added a new Text Field and define a new rule with "Query using a data connection" defined above. When i try to access the newly created Text field above it always return empty as if the Query attached to it did not executed at all. What did i do wrong? Is there a better way? Thank you in advance for your help.

Infopath Form Data submitting to Sharepoint 2010 List

  
Making a Client intake form that once submitted will send data to  a sharepoint 2010 List called contacts. Short Summary the form will have repeating fields and alot of information to submit. I have looked and read all over but I cannot find an easy step by step guild on how to submit the form data like that. Long Summary on the sharepoint site a button will open a form for adding a new client.  once the form has been filled out and the user hits submit sharepoint will then create a User File, in clients file, and take the data and put it into contacts list. I am trying to make use of Sharepoint as I would with access, meaning the more information I have on a client the easier it will be to mail merge letters, motions, basicly any file prepaired stuff. So once I have css designed forsharepoint to make it look the way I want then the forms should intergrate perfect

import data from infopath xml forms to SharePoint list

  
Hi. I have this issue, a customer has an old application that consists of a SharePoint 2003 site and a 'forms library' with forms listing information about physical servers. The infopath (2003) form is pretty straight forward and has a few dropdowns from lists and so on. Now, we need to move this to 2010 and preferably to a list only using oob functionality. I would like to know if anyone has a clue as to how I can get the data from the hundreds of xml files into a list, could be to excel and then to SharePoint, or any means Necessary. I would prefer it if it can be scripted or done using standard tools from Microsoft, no 3rd party custom xml importer...(if it's not really good and free :-) ) ThanksThomas BalkestÃ¥hl - Technical Specialist - SharePoint

Hopefully someone can Help ;)

Loop through SharePoint list and copy values into InfoPath Main Data

  

hi,

i have the following problem, i designed an Infopath form which should display the data (in a repeating table) from a SharePoint list, which is connected to the form.

 I found the following code in the internet to copy rows from a sharepoint list to a repeating node in the Main data source and followed the tutorial.

Public Sub CTRL48_6_Clicked(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As ClickedEventArgs)

      Dim secDSNav As XPathNavigator = DataSources("Projektsummary").CreateNavigator()


      ' Zeilen aus der Projektsummaryliste auslesen
      Dim rows As XPathNodeIterator = secDSNav.Select( _
      "/dfs:myFields/dfs:dataFields/d:SharePointListItem_RW", _
      NamespaceManager)

      'Dim Current As XPathNavigator
      'Loop durch die einzelnen Zeilen der Liste

      While rows.MoveNext()


        Dim name As String = rows.Current.SelectSingleNode( _
        "/dfs:myFields/dfs:dataFields/d:SharePointListItem_RW/d:Title", NamespaceManager).Value
        Dim nummer As Object = rows.Current.SelectSingleNode( _
        "/dfs:myFields/dfs:dataFields/d:SharePointListItem_RW/d:Projektnummer", NamespaceManager).Value


        ' Werte der wiederholten Tabelle (main data source) übergeben 
        AddItem(name, nummer)

Data Form Web Part - Sharepoint Dropdown List as a field in Edit View - Possible?

  

Hi guys,

I'm building a Sharepoint page with a data form web part that uses custom SELECT and UPDATE statements with an SQL Server connection in order to retrieve and store records of information.

I'm getting along fine, records seem to update how they should etc, but I've ran into a problem with one thing: Sharepoint dropdownlists in 'Edit Template'

So the issue is this: if I replace a textbox field with a dropdown list that is populated with a separate SQL datasource, the dropdown list seems to be unable to show the current value of the field.

E.g. I have a dataview which has a field "FruitID", which I can update just fine by setting the ID value to different numbers. The SQL datasource uses the FruitID to display a list of all available Fruits, (e.g. 1 = Banana, 2 = Apple, 3 = Cherry, etc).

If i open the dataview in editmode, the default value in the dropdown is null, despite the real value of the field being "2", which should show "Apple" in the dropdown.

I can select a fruit and click save, and it will update just fine. But the initial display needs to show the correct value to start with.

Is there a custom binding I should be coding to make this work? I can't configure dropdown <items> on an individual level as they are populated from the SQL server. I can't set "SelectedI

InfoPath Calculated Field doesn't Post to SharePoint List when form is submitted

  

I have a nice InfoPath form that includes a calculated total field.  That works great.   The form is published to a SharePoint list and when users of the form Submit the form to the list the form information neatly populates to the list.   Well, all of the fields populate to the list except for the calculated total field, that one is just blank.  Naturally, I've noodled around to figure out why and therefore I'm here now asking for guidance.   What should I be focusing on to resolve this issue?

Thanks


How do I embed an InfoPath form in the body of an e-mail and have the data go to a SharePoint list w

  
I've managed to create a form in InfoPath with all the required fields.  I can publish this to be embedded in the body of an e-mail as long as it is not linked to the SharePoint list.  I can also publish the form directly in the SharePoint list so that when you 'Add document' the form appears and can be filled out.  However, I can't publish the form to an e-mail (embedded in the body) and have a end-user submit the information to a SharePoint list.  Is this possible?  If so, what steps am I missing to allow it to happen?  Thanks!
