Infopath and Sharepoint

  Asked By: Betsy    Date: Jun 15    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1106

I have an infopath form that retrieves data from a Web service to populate fields on an infopath form automatically. This form Is published to a sharepoint document library so that when users click new in the document library, the template loads up and the user can populate the data and submit it. My problem now is that when I open the form in a browser there is an error about connecting to the datasource. From what I have been able to pick up on the internet the form needs to be fully trusted. But for it to be fully trusted the administrator needs to upload this infopath form to the sharepoint server. When this form is uploaded by an administrator, I don’t have the infopath fields available to run workflow and queries against.

Anyone know how I can use the infopath publish option to publish a fully trusted form directly to the sharepoint server?

I'm assuming you are using MOSS 2007, if so , then you need to upload
this form  using the administrative site from central administration -
> application management -> InfoPath Forms Services choose manage
form templates and upload  your template, this will create a content
type for that form including all the fields  you chose to expose.

Yes sorry I didn’t specify the version. It’s currently MOSS 2007 B2TR.

I have uploaded  it to the portal using that method.

How do I now apply this form  template to a document  library as the default content type so that if a user  clicks the new button it will open  this template  automatically?

1- Create new list
2- from the advanced settings change "Allow management of content
types?" to yes
4- back to the settings page, you can press over "Add from existing
site content types"
5- select your form  name from the existing content types
and press ok.

now when you press New the form will be opened.

Is there any way I can add this to a currently set up document  library, or do I need to create a new document library?

Answer #5    Answered By: David Brown     Answered On: Jun 15

just go to the settings of the document  library you have and modify
the setting as mentioned before (starting from point 2).

I want to Know if i can have the header of a column in a List in a drop down
withot custom coding in infopth. For example if there is a column say January to
Februray I should be able to choose which Month i want to update and update the
same but remember the column name is the header of the List.

If custom coding is the way to go please let me know how.

Also Please let me know if i can have two or three Pictures as a drop down in a
List or an Infopath from without custom coding. If custom coding has to be done
