InfoPath task is losing data after submit

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 14, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#

Hello everyone,

  I have a problem with InfoPath task form that must be edited many times before final decision. Task form contains several sections with different data for diferent approver group. Workflow send data to form which Section to show. Workflow generates 15 parallel tasks.

  When approver open task form for first time everything is ok and his changes are send successufully to workflow. The problem is when approver open it second time - the fields are empty and he must enter his changes from beginning. I think that these data must be in form but fields are empty.

  This is code when task is created is workflow (workflow is Visual Studio made).


"CurrentGroup"] = Group;//Group Name

  In InfoPa

Infopath Data Connections and Submit

We are in the process of shifting our draft system from SP 2007 to SP 2010 and we are re-visiting our Infopath forms service. Admin approved IP forms,  the templates emailed to our 12 remote 'offices' 12 Site collections -identical structure for remote locations 12 Remote user locations, never connected! ,fills in the form, selects own site, and emails back to office Custom button on form with rules reads 'selected site' and uses appropiate data connection to submit to correct Site Collection/Form Library. We are only using 1 site at the moment but obviously with 12 sites it becomes unmanagable, my thoughts;- Can we use a web service to act as an intermediary to point to correct library? Would a dataconnection library help?, or is the amount of work the same? ??? casey  

create an infopath form that receive and submit data to sql server database in the same form



i want to create an infopath form that can receive the data out of the slq server database and edit the data in the database and then submit it.

here is what i did so far.

i created a data connection to a sql server database to SUBMIT the data.

also i created a data connection to the same sql server database to RECEIVE the data.

when i open the form the user and the user's details are already filled in the form, now i need to let the user edit the data in the fields or add a new data in a field and then the form need to be submitted to a temporary database to be checked first by an approver and after approval the form must be submitted to the real sql server database.

i tought about that the approver just need to click a button and the data will be submitted to the the real database.

both the temporary and the real database has the same tables and fields.

i just need to know how to edit and submit the data to the temporary later to the real database

Cannot submit an infopath 2007 data source to sql database using managed code - C#.


Is this possible?  I can submit the data source just fine using custom action rules either from a submit button on the form or from the submit button from the tool bar.

But when I try to use C# nothing below works, Main Connection is my data source.  I get unhandled exception errors when I run the form in debug

AdoSubmitConnection sc = (AdoSubmitConnection)this.DataConnections["Main Connection"];

WebServiceConnection sc = (WebServiceConnection)this.DataConnections["Main Connection"];

FileSubmitConnection sc = (FileSubmitConnection)this.DataConnections["Main Connection"];

However I can send an email just fine using ;

EmailSubmitConnection sc = (EmailSubmitConnection)this.DataConnections["Email Connection"];


Any help would be greatly appreciated

Data lost on submit


Dear Experts,

I have a modal popup and a GridView in it. The GridView is populated programmatically, i.e. I use .DataBind(). I can enter data into some of the GridView's controls. After I press Submit, I expect to do something with the entered data. But in the button press handler, the GridView is empty. I realize that I have to DataBind() again in the handler, but how can I preserve the data the user enters?


InfoPath Workflow Task Form "Loading" event handler only being called after App Pool recycled.


I have a Workflow that is using an InfoPath task form.  In the "FormEvents_Loading" method event handler I have some code that needs to run each time the form is opened.   I recycle the App Pool and open the form the code runs perfectly, but if I close and try to re-open the form the code is not run at all.  I can then recycle the App Pool again and on the next load the code executes just fine.   The code that is supposed to be run is a very simple statement to set a field value, so I don't think it is interfering.

Does anyone know what this might be?


Infopath resets all data on a web from when submitting via the MAC



I'm seeing some very strange behaviour with some browser based Infopath forms.  The user is trying to fill the infopath form using safari on the Mac and when the user hits the submit button the form reset itself.

An other behaviour is that when the user click on a form field all the form fields will automatically populate one value.  This happen intermittently.

We have two load balancing web front ends. Server1 and Server2 the users that a reporting this problem get served by Server1 when I test on my Mac to replicate the problem the request get served by Server2. This problem occurs on different forms across the sharepoint implementation.

Can anybody shed any light on the problem?

Workflow doesn't complete when a task is updated directly from an infopath form.

I have an approval workflow that creates a task for a group to approve or reject an InfoPath form. But if a member of the group opens the form and updates the task from there, it doesn't complete the workflow. It only completes the workflow if they go to the actual task and update it from there. Does anyone know how to fix that?

How do I add two XML tasks to a Data FLow task?

I am new to SSIS and am developing a package which takes input from an XML file and then populates an existing SQL table with these records.  However, this is a very large XML file.  I keep getting an Out of Memory exception.  (This file is 210 MB)!  So what I tried doing was separating this XML file into 8 smaller files.  Now, I can successfully load data from these smaller files one at a time.  But how can I do all of them in the same package?  I connected two XML tasks to the Data Flow task and get the error below.  I also increased my timeout and number of errors to no avail.  Advice? Error: 0xC002F304 at XML Task 1, XML Task: An error occurred with the following error message: "Exception of type 'System.OutOfMemoryException' was thrown.". Task failed: XML Task 1 Warning: 0x80019002 at zSkywardEnrollment: SSIS Warning Code DTS_W_MAXIMUMERRORCOUNTREACHED. The Execution method succeeded, but the number of errors raised (1) reached the maximum allowed (1); resulting in failure. This occurs when the number of errors reaches the number specified in MaximumErrorCount. Change the MaximumErrorCount or fix the errors.

How to detect that a Data Flow Task has failed (from inside a custom componet)

Hi, in the PostExecute Method of a custom component i would like to check if the Data Flow Task has been failed. Is that possible? Also it would be great to be able to check if this custom component already got all data or has been marked as "green".  Thanks, Dennis

Data flow task with multiple destinations randomly hangs

I have a package whose control flow consisting of a single data flow task with multiple destinations continues to hang at random locations.  The data flow task is fairly simple: - One OLE DB source (one query of selecting about 10 fields from one table) - 9 lookups that serve basically as left joins to capture which data "drops off" (does a row redirect on on lookup errors to an "error flow") - Two destinations: one the captures all the data that doesn't drop off from the lookups, and another to capture the data that does drop off; these write to two tables unrelated to each other, and unrelated to any of the tables I'm reading from I have tried the following: - Changed one or both destinations from OLE DB to flat file -- still randomly hangs - Removed both destinations altogether -- this always suceeds.   - Removed destination A and leave destination B -- this always succeeds - Removed destination B and leave destination A -- this always succeeds I took great care in making sure I get no warnings when the package runs, even resolving the unneeded column warnings, and the duplicate keys on all my lookups, but it still hangs. However, once I give up and stop the package, the following error is thrown (among others that appear to be a byproduct of the root issue): Error: 0xC02020C4 at Data Flow Task, OLE_SRC AP12 [1]: The attempt to

C# newbie stuck - trying to access column data in a SharePoint list in an SSIS script task

Hello, I'm sure this is the simplest question but I can't figure it out, even with Google's help. I am trying to stumble through some C# code in an SSIS script task and I am frustrated that I can't figure out how to do the easiest things.  I eventually want to find data in a column,and then use another list as a lookup to replace that value with another where the existing value matches a value in the lookup list.  So, the data in my (multiple choice) column might be "apples; bananas" and in another list I have a row that contains two columns, the first holding the value "Apples" and the second containing "Red Delicious" and my original column should read: "Red Delicious; bananas." But, alas, I can't even figure out how to see the data that is in a column. Here is my code: /*<br/> Microsoft SQL Server Integration Services Script Task<br/> Write scripts using Microsoft Visual C# 2008.<br/> The ScriptMain is the entry point class of the script.<br/> */<br/> <br/> using System;<br/> using System.Data;<br/> using Microsoft.SharePoint;<br/> using Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime;<br/> using System.Windows.Forms;<br/> using Microsoft.SharePoint.Utilities;<br/> <br/> namespace ST_08becda4c05c49cd9f30ea76110076cd.csproj<br/> {<br/> [
