Not always prompted for read-only or EDIT mode, when opening files with IE7, Sharepoint 3.0

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 30, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 
Hello Everyone,   We use Sharepoint 3.0 and when I click on a document I get a pop up prompt that asks me whether I want to open the file in READ-ONLY or EDIT mode.   I use a machine with XP Pro that is running IE7.   A user called me today, also running IE7, and when he clicks to open a Sharepoint file he gets a different prompt - a simpler one that just offers OPEN or SAVE.   I don't care that his prompt looks different - the problem is that he is able to open the file, make edits, but then when he closes the file (using Excel) he isn't able to save his changes.   Excel only provides a save-as option for him.   This isn't a permission problem with his ID.   When I login to our Sharepoint 3.0 system as him, with his password (from my machine), I get the usual Read-Only / Edit prompt and when I open a file in EDIT mode I am able to save my changes with no problem.   Any thoughts on this?   Chris

Powerpoint ppsx files open as read only in sharepoint with not option to edit

  
With Powerpoint 20007 in sharepoint(MOSS 2007) the PPSX files are opening in read only mode with no option to edit to be found. 2nd issue is ppsx files do not open on any persons computer as a show.  Is it possible to change this? How do I change this so I can edit the slides? Current "bad" solution is to save to local drive than upload them over the location  on sharepoint.

Add edit drop down menu so I can edit pdf files in SharePoint

  

I have a pdf file that I'd like to open and edit.  The pdf file just opens, and doesn't ask if it should be opened as a read only or edit option.  My colleague is able to select edit mode as a drill down, but I can't figure out how to add this functionality into my document library... does anyone have a solution?


Moved from WinXP to Win7 - don't see choice to open file in read only or edit mode

  

I just recently moved from Win XP Pro SP3 to Win 7 32-bit Pro. I am logging into domain X normally. Our Sharepoint 2007 server authenticates only on domain Y. So I start Internet Explorer with "run as different user" and provide my domain Y credentials. All fine. 

In win XP, after I did this, when I click on an Excel file on Sharepoint, I would get a dialog asking if I wanted to check out and edit or open as read only. 

In win7, I don't get that choice. The file simply opens, and I get a bar at the top which allows me to check out the file if I wanted to. 

How can I restore the functionality I used to have, with the dialog for checking out the file before opening it?


Sharepoint permission to add files but not to edit

  
Hi all, I delevoped one certification process in Sharepoint 2007. I upload in a document list some training material to the user read. After this, the users must do a test composed by 10 question about the subjects inside the training material. If the user answer correcty to 8 or more questions, the user is certified and I create the certification word documenht in another document list based on a template document designed by me. I have a workflow to do this. The problem is that the workflow run when the user finish the questionary. I must give permission to the user that starts the workflow to add documents in the certification document library for the case if gets more than 8 questions correct to create the certification document, but I don't want that the user can change the documento to not change the score in it. So, for this document library, I must give access to add but not to edit documents. I create a new level permissions, and I checked the permissions to add and view, and I unchecked the edit and dele permissions, but when I do this, the workflow gives an error saying that don't have permission to create a item in that document list. If I check the edit checkbox, the workflow runs without problem but the user can change the document. How can I solve this problem? Regards, Daniel

Use SSIS to read files in SharePoint library

  
Hi,I'm trying to use SSIS to read data from an Excel file in a SharePoint document library and I am having some problems with it.First I tried to use the Excel file as a source file in an Excel Source task which worked well in BIDS but not on the SQL server. ("CANNOTACQUIRECONNECTIONFROMCONNECTIONMANAGER")Next I tried to read data from an Excel file on the SQL server file system which worked well on the SQL server.Next I tried to use a File System Task to copy the Excel file to the SQL server file system. This also worked well in BIDS but not on the SQL server. ("The file name \\sharepoint\mylibrary\myfile.xls specified in the connection was not valid.")I have also tried to let the SQL server agent run on a domain account that is set up as a reader on the SharePoint document library without success.Where am I going wrong?

Opening non-Microsoft files in SharePoint

  

Hi, I wonder if anyone has any idea on this...? My guess is it's something quite simple.

We're using SharePoint 2007 to store shared documents. Some of the documents are Acrobat PDFs. When I click on them, they open up in Acrobat Reader, when another user clicks on them (from his workstation), they open in a web-page. If he opens up other Office document types (Word, Excel), they open in the application as expected.

If he opens Acrobat on his desktop, and then selects the file from the SharePoint folder, it opens up in Acrobat as normal. Any ideas on what could be the cause of this?

Sorry if this question is rather unsophisticated, I'm not all that technical....

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Error opening excel files stored in SharePoint 3.0 from VS2010 (TFS2010 setup)

  

Hello,

First I hope this is the correct forum for te below question, and if not, please excuse and if possible divert me to the correct place.

We have a TFS2010 setup with (what I managed to identify) Sharepoint Services 3.0.
We have 2 users working in the same collection, and also share some of the projects in it with the below problems:

1. User A has Office 2007. She is unable to "edit workbook" on an excel file directly from VS2010, and gets an error of 'Unknown error trying to lock file'. I searched this around and didn't find a solution, but did find a workaround - If she checks out the file directly from the SharePoint site, she is able to edit the file, and in fact is able to later "edit workbook" directly from VS2010 (as long as she once checked it out through SharePoint).

2. User B has Office 2010. When he tries to "edit workbook", he gets an error of 'A problem occurred while connecting to the server. If the problem continues, contact your administrator'. When he goes directly to the SharePoint, he is able to check out the file, open it in Excel 2010, but is not able to check it back in (gets an error that the file cannot be located or so, I don't have the exact error). This means that this user cannot work with the SharePpoint stored files at all, and currently works on local copies on hi

Link to my Office Document opening in Read-Only mode

  

I have an excel document in my Pages library which has document check-out disabled and I have contribute permissions on the library.

When I go to the Pages library and click on the name of the excel document, it rightly opens and allows me to edit it and then save it back.

BUT, when I put a link to that document on an aspx page and click on it, it opens in Read-Only mode.

I get the same behavior for Word documents.

How do I get the link on the aspx page to be editable? 


Blocking Edit Document for Read only users in SharePoint 2007

  
I'm trying to create a group in one of my sites that is Read only - truly read only.  Seems no matter what I do, the users can click on Edit Document, check out, check in, and the document is changed.  It doesn't show as changed in the Modified or Modified By columns, but the changes I make to test are there.  How do I create a group that can open a document, but can NOT check it out, can NOT Edit Document, and then check it back in?

Opening in Read-Only after you select Edit

  

This issue is growing rampantly with our organization.  Users opening SharePoint documents (Word or Excel, etc.) and they select Edit but it opens as Read-Only.  We have tried a variety of things, but what solves the issue is to recreate the users profile.  We can't keep doing this.

Things we've tried prior to recreating the users profile have been:

  • Reinstall webfolders.msi located at C:\Windows\System32
  • Update OWSUPP.DLL located at C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12
  • Clear Temporary Internet Files.
  • Make sure the sharepoint URL is not in trusted sites.

Any assistance with this issue is greatly appreciated.

Sharepoint seeking authentication when opening Word / Excel files from website

  

The company I work for is using SharePoint as a CMS for it's public facing website. I recently enabled FBA (Forms Based Authentication) for the site in order to provide some user specific functionality, but this has caused a side effect with Word / Excel files when opened from the site using Office 2007 / 2010.

Some users are challenged for authentication when opening a Word / Excel document from IE (but not when they're select "save file" instead of "open file"). A window pops up behind IE / Word / Excel (so you often don't realise it's there) showing the sites login page. If the window is dismissed then the document continues to open normally.

It seems to be environmental. Most Office 2007 / 2010 users internally experience this and we've had one report externally of this happening.

Anyone know how to prevent this behaviour?

In case it's relevant: The company also has an internal SharePoint site using NTML authentication allowing internal users to edit the same content visible externally.

I originally suspected the SharePoint header added to responses may be alerting Office to check for authentication to allow extended functionality, but I remove the response header in IIS and it didn't make any difference.

SharePoint document migration challenges when migrating files and folders

  
There are several challenges when migrating documents to Microsoft SharePoint. While these challenges can be overcome, they are a real pain if the migration source, content and file systems are not SharePoint friendly.

Read Only / Edit Prompt window

  

Dear all,

As a default, my SharePoint farms are showing a pop up window from IE asking if users want to open the doc in read only or in edit mode. Is there a way to get rid of this window as chose one of the options for default? Where can I do this?

Thanks in advance.
