    Re: InfoPath 2010 questions? Ask here.

    Hello warrtalon, I hope you are still responding to this board. First, I would like to thank you for the numerous times your advice has helped me with an InfoPath issue. I have never posted before, because I always seem to be able to find the answer somewhere out there. Anyways, this is the first time I am posting. My question may seem dumb, but I cannot find the answer anywhere. I work for a company that is still using SP2007 and Office/InfoPath 2007. We are looking to migrate to SP2010 in the next month or so, and probably Office/InfoPath 2010 within the next 6 months. I have already upgraded at home to both SP2010 and Office/InfoPath 2010.

    I have designed an InfoPath form using the following link It describes my problem perfectly. I have some users that have InfoPath installed (internal) and those who don't (external). I developed the form with the associated views, one browser view and one InfoPath only view. After developing the form, I needed to test. I went home and accessed the form through the portal on my home PC (Office/InfoPath 2010). I assumed that the form would not open in InfoPath 2010, and I was correct. However, the form does not open in the browser either. InfoPath 2010 stops the form from opening in a browser, but will also not display in InfoPath 2010. I tested the form on a virtual machine that does not have Office/InfoPath installed, and it worked perfectly opening in a browser.

    So my concern is if someone that has Office/InfoPath 2010 installed tries to access the form, they will not have access. Is there any way to get a 2007 form to open in 2010? Or is there any way to get the form to open in the browser if 2010 is installed? Keep in mind that many parts of the InfoPath only view are not browser compatible, so I don't really want to force the form to browser only. Any help would be appriciated.

    Shawncho, there is definitely no limitation to opening 2007 forms in 2010, so I don't know what the issue is here.  I only use Infopath 2010, but I still have clients and solutions where everything is built in 2007.  There is no problem with opening and interacting with a 2007 Filler form in the 2010 Filler.

    I can also say I never build split-functionality forms.  The form template should either be a browser form or client form, imo, but that doesn't mean your technique can't work.

    Hello Warrtalon,

    I'm wondering if you can help me with a query.  We have a Purchase Request form, designed in IP2010 and using SPD2007 for the workflow.  Everything is fine and the forms are being raised and authorised without issue.

    However, I've been asked to design a replacement form with some new features, some of which are working ok.  I do however need to include a curreny converter, so the Purchasing staff can convert the amount in the total box, to £ (GBP).  We have given the option to users to allow them to raise a PR form in $ or € so when they complete their form, it is submitted with the total amount in that currency. 

    However, we need to get the totals in the form library all in £.  I'm thinking something along the lines of a hidden box, which is only visible to the purchasing staff of their view, so they can put in the correct value, which then changes the total value.  I'm hoping you could provide more clarity though!!   :)

    Thanks for your help Warrtalon

    Kind regards

    Thanks for the quick response. The split functionality is a nice feature and works really nice....when it works. I am sure I will find the answer....or give up and just make it a browser form.

    Anyways, thanks for all your help,

    Jay, I would use a currency conversion web service like this one:  Put that in your form and auto-convert currency for $ forms and store the converted value in your other field so that every form has the currency type you want regardless of what the user sees.

    Hi Clayton,

    Thank you for the reply!  :)

    Can I ask, am I able to use this web service in WSS?  I forgot to mention that we don't run MOSS on our system, only WSS V3.0 for the moment.

    Also, as I'm not using much code on my form (I'm not that good with code!) where would I put this code on my form?  I can attach my form for you if you wish to see it?

    Forms are designed in InfoPath 2010 and SPD2007 for the workflow.

    Thanks Clayton,

    Jay, that is a public web service.  It's not related to SharePoint.

    Re: InfoPath 2010 questions? Ask here.

    I am running InfoPath 2010 along with SharePoint 2010 Enterprise. InfoPath is enabled on the SharePoint Server. I created a new form in InfoPath tied to two SharePoint lists and it tests perfectly so I know it's talking to SharePoint. So, following instructions I have seen on may blogs, When I go to publish....  File > There is no option to publish to the SharePoint server...  Only Quick Publish. The form is saved in a SharePoint directory as an *.xsn file which I am unable to load in Central Admin because I get the error that this form tempalted has not been published. Open the form in the InfoPath Designer and publish the form to SharePoint using the Administrator-approved form templated method in the Publishing Wizard.  When I use Quick Publish there is no wizard.  What have I missed?

    Re: InfoPath 2010 questions? Ask here.

    If this is a LIST FORM TEMPLATE, then it can only be published to the list it is bound to, which is why you only see Quick Publish on a list form template.  If it's a library form template, then you'd see 3 options for publishing.  What kind of template did you create?  How did you initially create it?  What do you mean by "tied to two SharePoint lists"?  A list form can only be "tied" to one list, so were you talking about data connections or something else?

    Re: InfoPath 2010 questions? Ask here.

    I am new to IP and have to create a incident tracker form. I have a student SP list with first name and last name and photo that is a hyperlink pointing to a photo library.

    When the user selects the student in the form from a drop down i wanted to change the photo on the form to that selected student.

    Any help would be appreciated. I am not a programmer

    I have the form done but when i select the student the image field just changes to the photo ID (1, 2, 3, 4, etc)

    Re: InfoPath 2010 questions? Ask here.

    Environment: Office/InfoPath 2010 on my local machine with end users using Office/InfoPath 2007


    First, I would like to apologize if this has already been answered. I have put numerous hours into searching for a resolution to this, but have come up empty...hence finally asking on the forum.

    I have an InfoPath 2007 form that I have been enhancing in 2010. I attempted to add a few PeoplePicker controls and use those to feed the Submit to Email connection. Quite often, there are multiple people selected. I managed to get everything working perfectly in 2010 (double-eval trick was mighty helpful). However, when I went to test on a 2007 machine, I ran into issues.

    I was able to get the People picker control to work in 2007 (it isn't pretty, but it does function). The current issue I am facing is that Outlook 2007 doesn't seem to be able to handle the DisplayName like Outlook 2010 can. If we only had single users being entered, I could just have them enter the userID manually and just add the "" in a function. But, they need to be able to select/enter multiple users. I thought about just pulling the AccountID and stripping the Domain off, but I cannot seem to find a function to do this.

    Any ideas on how I can get this to work? I would like to try and avoid custom code if possible.

    Thanks in advance!!

    Re: InfoPath 2010 questions? Ask here.

    Yes, it is a List Form Template. It was created by File > New > SharePoint List > Design Form > (server site address). I have two SP Lists that I am pulling data in from on the form. Even though this is the formthat will create items on myTransportation List, I am displaying calcs from my Mileage List on the form. Yes, a data connection. So, when I publish the form, it publishes successfully. Then I open SP Designer and navigate to the Transportation List. Expand All Files. Even thought I named the form TransportationForm in InfoPath Designer, the only InfoPath file I can find is one named template.xsn and it is listed in the Item folder within my Transportation List and not with the default *Form.aspx files.

    So I access the SP Admin site and try to upload the template so it will be available for use and that is where I get the error that it cant be uploaded.

    Re: InfoPath 2010 questions? Ask here.

    I was able to Upload my form template on the Manage Form Templates central admin page however when I attempt to Activate to a Site Collection I get the following Error:

     The form template could not be activated to the following site collection: http://sharepoint:18031. You do not have the permissions required to perform this operation. Only the administrators of this site collection can activate to the site collection. Either add yourself as a site collection administrator, or have a site collection administrator activate the form template.

    So I went back and confirmed that I am listed as the primary site collection admin and am logged in as myself.
