Permissions on Word forms in doc library?

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#
I must be doing something wrong with permissions.  I've got some Word documents on our intranet that are the kind the user can fill out.  The library permissions are set to provide SiteName Visitors with read/view rights  and SiteName Members with Contribute rights.  The intent is that normal staff (SiteName Visitors) would have to save the document to to their computer to fill it out.  Only admins in the Members group could make edits and save it back to the SP server.  But when I test this with a test user in the Visitors group, I can type into it and save it back to the doc library.  What am I doing wrong?

There are no mistakes; every result tells you something of value about what you're are trying to accomplish.

Search does not find text in Word document stored in document library on a Report Center site within



We have a document library on a site created off of the Report Center site template. We uploaded a Word 2007 document with the word zebra in the text. Using the search bar at the top of the page we selected This list: Our document library and searched for zebra. We received no results.

We tested the same thing on another site (site template Team site) within the same site collection and search worked fine.

Does the Report Center search function differently then the search functionality on the Team site?

Replace text in a word document stored in a Document Library


Hi to all,

im tying to replace some text introduced in a word document stored in a document library.

Exactly i need a web part with a button that change a key in a word template <list> (for example) and replace <list> with a text in another list.


I think that it would works with the Microsoft.Office.Word.Interop; namespace but when i call the function :

wDoc = wordApp.Documents.Open(ref fileName, ref missing,
                                ref readOnly, ref missing, ref missing, ref missing,
                                ref missing, ref missing, ref missing, ref missing,
                                ref missing, ref isVisible, ref missing, ref missing,

Infopath form and forms library error

I've created an InfoPath 2010 form and associated it with a forms library on a SharePoint site. When I go to the library and choose "Add document" the form opens up to be filled out by the user. When the form is filled out, and the user tries to submit, they get an error saying that I need to configure SharePoint to allow cross-domain data access for user form templates that use connection settings in a data connection file and store a UDC file in the same site collection as the form. So I've enabled cross-domain data access and I've already created a Data Collection Library for Forms in the Site that is approved. What am I missing?  Why am I still getting the error?  

New Document Library in a subsite is inheriting permissions from wrong site

I have a site collection (using the out-of-the-box Business Intelligence site template) called "BI Home". A couple weeks ago I created a bunch of subsites (Finance, Regulatory, Marketing, etc.) all using the BI site template, and then created a Document Library called "Reports" in each one of those subsites. Those are all working as expected. Yesterday I needed to create a new subsite (again, a BI site just off the root site collection) called "Operations". I created the subsite, and then created the "Reports" document library underneath it.  When I went to modify the permissions of the new document library (located here: /Operations/Reports), it said it was inheriting permissions from it's parent: "BI Home".  Why would this be?  Shouldn't the parent be "Operations" ?? All my other sites' "Reports" folders are inheriting permission from their respective parent, but any new sites I create seem to have this issue. Thanks in advance for any insight someone may provide! [SharePoint 2010 RTM on Win2k8R2 using SQL 2008R2 RTM on Win2k8R2]

Converting Word Documents library to PDF document library in SharePoint Server 2007

My project requires me to create an event reciever such that when a word file is added to one library the same content pdf file should be added to other library also when a word file is updated,edited or checked in the respective pdf file in other document library should be replaced by a new pdf file with the edited word content . Can we do this in Sharepoint 2007 I have seen this can be done in Sharepoint 2010 http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff181518.aspx

Item/Document permissions affect Library/List permissions

When I change the permissions on a item/document in a library/list the permissions are also changed on the library/list even though I stopped inheritance.  When I change the permissions on the library/list it also changes permissions on items/documents in that list even if inheritance is removed.

Using Workflow to create an InfoPath item in a Forms Library

Hi Experts: Here is my situation: I have a MOSS 2007 server with list A (regular sharepoint list) and List B (InfoPath form library with a published form) This is what I am trying to accomplish using SharePoint Designer: List A is just a basic list User changes a column in list A to a specific value A new form needs to be added to the forms library B SharePoint designer Workflow will not create a valid xml file in the List B forms library. It just creates an invalid file based on the .xsn file template. Does anyone have any experience creating a valid xml form in a forms library using SharePoint Designer workflow? I can't migrate to 2010 so that is not an option. Thanks for all your advise.

Creating report from Infopath library/submitted forms

Hi, I got a form that has repeating table containg data. The form is submitted to a form library on MOSS 2007 site. Some of the key fields from the form has been promoted to the library, which allows creating views and gives the user a quick report based on the filter. Now, the user wants similar function, however the data is stored in the repeating table. I can use double eval function to combine data from each columns and promote them to the library. But obviously, it doesn't give the user accurate/the kind of report he is looking for using the views. Do you have any suggestion? The only option I can think of is storing each row from repeating table into an Access database or sharepoint list. But that'll also involve making sure correct data is being updated in these secondary data source when updating the form.  Pman http://www.pmansLab.com/

Multiline text field in document library and item update from Word trouble

Hi I have faced a bit of odd problem. Here is the scenario: I have document library with text columns (multiple lines of text) that are set to unlimited length. I have a workflow that runs with Word documents (.docx) that stores information in XML to this field. Everything works perfectly until document is edited in Word and saved back to document library. After Word saves my document in document library, the multiline text field is "cutted", only 7 rows of text is saved to my field. I have tried hiding my text field, making it sealed or readonly, but still Word breaks my field. Funniest thing is that when editing document in Word, this field should not have any changes (meaning that I dont show my "long text field" in document information panel back in Word). I have tried also creating event handler to handle itemupdating event in document library where I switch spweb.parserenabled property to false and in itemupdated event I switch it back on. Also I have tried to remove all line changes from XML with no luck. This XML saving to long text field works perfectly with many other places but in this one environment this does not seem to work :( I am looking forward to any suggestions what to try next. I have been wondering about using the eventhandlers and trying to "protect" my text field with some logic but that is still just a thought.   T

How to set create-only permissions to publishing pages library?

I have publishing site where users can add their own pages to some libraries. I have problem with permissions when user creates new page. Here's how I set permissions: all users are added to members group (by default they can view pages) members group has view permissions also for master pages library For site where users can add pages I set the following permissions on pages library users can add view pages users can add pages When user adds new page then he/she gets automatically edit permissions for this page. So users can edit only their own pages. I found out that add permission is not enough - when user creates page then he/she gets access denied error. The minun that doesn't cause problems is approver permission to pages library (of course, now users can do everything on pages library they ever want to do). Is there any way to avoid making users as approvers?  They only need view and add permissions for page library and view and edit permissions for pages they added. They cannot do anything more. Approving and denying of pages is administrators job. With best regards, Gunnar Peipman   Also visit my ASP.NET and SharePoint blog!
