Multiple InfoPath Forms - Web-Browser Enabled

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#

I have found many forums post here with my general question.  HOWEVER, mine is a little different than the rest.  I am able to publish multiple InfoPath forms to a single library via content types.  I took my original form, copied it to desktop, changed the name and ID of the form and published it as content-type, etc, no problem.  I do see both forms available for selection when creating a new form in the library.

MY Problem: Only my original form is web-browser enabled.  Even though the others were copied from that original, I get a warning upon publishing those copys that the new one will not be web-browser compatible.

Otherwise the new ones do launch in InfoPath on the users computers, but that is not acceptable for our needs.

My server died and went to Dell.

Deploying InfoPath 2007 form to WSS 3.0 as browser enabled


Please Help! I've created an Infopath form and wanted to deploy the form as browser enabled to WSS 3.0? What are the different options I can do this? If i cannot use a form then i would like to  create a custom list with all the form fields but the user should be able to enter information in the list and he should see only the information related to him. I don't want to give access of the whole list to each and every user. Only the administrator should be able to see the whole list. The form was actually a user access request form.

Any help and suggestions is appreciated.


Sharepoint 2010: Browser compatible infopath forms are not open in web browser for editing


I created a browser enabled form with InfoPath 2010. I then published the form by selecting the option "Publish form to a SharePoint library" and then selected "Form library" and finally selected "Create a new form library". As a result, a new form library was created.When I click on "add document", the browser opens a new form, which I can fill and save successfully. However, after the form is saved, whenever I click on the form name in the form library to edit it, the browser "opens with" dialog box opens, asking for an XML editor software. In other words, the form does not open in browser for editing even on systems that do not have InfoPath installed.

The form is browser compatible and the form library is configured to open browser-enabled forms in browser. The issue is that the form hyperlink is directly pointing to form XML file rather than pointing to InfoPath form services URL.

I would really appreciate, if someone tells me how I can edit the form in browser.

Adding custom help to browser based Infopath forms


We are developing a browser-based application with Infopath 2010 forms.  We would like to provide buttons that pop up a separate browser window containing an HTML help page, which would be stored in a SharePoint Wiki.  I understand it is not possible to call JavaScript from a browser form, which was the initial thought. 

What other approaches are there for providing custom help in Infopath?

Browser based InfoPath forms in Sharepoint error



I have a form that we built in InfoPath2010 and I am trying to publish it to SharePoint2010 using the "broswer-based" capability. The form works in preview mode in InfoPath, but when I publish it to SharePoint, I get the follwing error:

"You do not have permissions to access a database that contains data required for this form to function correctly.
An entry has been added to the Windows event log of the server.

Log ID:5566

Correlation ID:9161ac7c-7b8f-4164-907a-14426c54b24f"
The form has two main data connections, both are tables in a sql database server. They display data from the tables, and the users are also able to input data into the database. The form right now is configured as "full" trust, as we have custom code in the form that will only work with that setting. I have also uploaded the two UDC connection to a data connection library in SharePoint, but no luck.
Here is part of the  the custom code in our form that may be causing issues:

Hi All,

I am getting following error message in my SharePoint Logs,

InfoPath Forms Services has detected a mismatch between the user's data in the browser and on the server. This may indicate the SESSION_STATE_PASCAL_CASED is not configured properly on a multiple front end farm or that a malicious user is trying to tamper with client data.

Any idea how to solve this issue ?

Programmatically Mapping Custom SharePoint Column on Non-browser Enabled InfoPath Form


I have an InfoPath form, which, due to control requirements, is not browser enabled. It is being programmatically added as a content type to SharePoint (MOSS 2007). All users have Office 2007 installed so they will be able to open the form. I also have a custom multi-line column in the SharePoint document library. I can manually publish the form and map the column to a field of the form, but I need to be able to do this programmatically.

We are currently deploying the forms by modifying the publish url in the xsf during install. We have tried to modify the site coulmn GUID in the template xsf during install without success.

Does anyone have any ideas as to how we can programmatically promote the InfoPath field so it is visible in SharePoint?

Browser Enabled Forms - "Unknown Error" when trying to open


Hi All,

I'm running SharePoint 2007 SP2 Enterprise on Server 2008 R2, and a SQL 2008 back end, Everything has been running perfectly up until recently.

This morning I got a call that users are unable to open existing forms in the browser.  The Infopath "Loading Form" dialog appears, but a SharePoint "Unknown Error" appears in the background and I get nowhere?

I've checked in the 12hive logs and do not see anything helpful.


Any ideas?

InfoPath SP 2010 multiple web forms in the same library.


I am looking to create a document library with multiple InfoPath forms that are fillable using the web interface.  I don't need the forms to be saved and would just like them to have the submit button which will then fire workflows and send emails, etc...

I have used the Form Library, and I enabled multiple content types and saved each form as a new content type then granted users only view permissions it and it sort of work how I want but they have to use the New Document ribbon.  I would like the to just have a list of Forms in a Doc Library that when the click on them they open in the web and only allow the user to click submit. 

How do I go about this or do I have to go the Forms Library way with multiple contenet types?

Infopath Browser Enabled Form - Filters dont work inside repeating table



I have been trying to create a Browser Enabled form to be used as a Sales Order form, the form will work in the following way.

It will pull in info from a sharepoint list with Customer Codes, it will pull in info from another sharepoint list with customer contact information which will be filtered based on which customer is selected.

There will then be a repeating table to place the order items.  The repeating table has 8 columns, 6 of which are lookups against 1 sharepoint list (all the columns are in the same list).

The sharepoint lsit data looks something similar to this:

Item Type                 Item Provider                    Product Relation              Product Description                Delivery Team              Cost
Service                     Us                &

Infopath 2010 browser enabled form need to save form immediately prior to submission to a different



Using SharePoint 2010 and Infopath web browser admin approved forms. I have a big form that will take serveral edits over time via collaboration between two users prior to submission. I use two form libraries say WIP for work in progress and Submitted for submitted forms. There are different access permissions to the two libraries.

When a user submits a form from the WIP library to the Submitted library I want to set a flag on the WIP form to say submitted=Yes so that if they go back into the original WIP form they cannot submit a second time with the same form. I use this flag field to set a read only view of the form.

The trouble is that when I set the flag before triggering the submit then the flag is set but the current form is not saved before it is submitted as a new form to the submitted library so the flag never gets set on the current form!

Ideally I want to force a save to the WIP form immediately prior to a submission but after I set the flag field value. I am having difficulty in finding out how to do this - any suggestions? I realise that submit is a form of save but I want to simply save the current form as part of the submit action. What is happening is that the form is submitted to the other library but THIS form is not saved. I cannot depend on the user to save using the Save button.
