Saving Tiffs to web folder

  Asked By: Jyoti    Date: Oct 11    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1349

I'm having problems saving tiffs directly to the web folder from
Microsoft Imaging. When I choose save/save as and go to the SharePoint
web folder I want to save too. I get the following dialog box message:

You cannot save in the folder you specified. Please choose another

Anyone have the same problem and has resolved it?

I've had that problem  sometime when saving  a file with "&" in the name.
Usually, however, the error message  says something along the lines of
authentication problems  or 'unable to write to network' or some stupid
message that has nothing to do with "&" being in the name.

Is there a way in a personal dashboard to create a link instead of a subfolder,
so it can appear and be selected from the bar.

I've double check and made sure there were no special characters such as
"&", but I'm getting the same problem. Any more suggestions?

You're not crazy and there's not a problem  with your filename. The
SPS client does not integrate with all Windows 2000 applications,
only MS Office. You can't save  a doc of any type from any other
Windows apps (i.e., Paint) by navigating to the SPS
workspace/documents destination via "My Network Place" (web folders)
in the Save As dialog. The best you can do is save the TIFF file and
drag and drop in in the workspace via the Windows File Explorer (SPS
client does integrate with Win Explorer). Or, you can write a custom
app to drive your scanner and then use the DataSource.SaveTo method
to upload the file into your workspace. I can't give the exact
reason why the SPS client is limited in this way, but that is the way
it is, at least at this point.

I think the problem  is that a large number of applications (including,
it seems, Microsoft Imaging) do not support saving  documents directly
into web  folders. Applications such as Excel, Word, Adobe Acrobat (full
version) support this feature however applications that do not will give
you the error message  you describe.

I've been monitoring this topic...

How about in MS Outlook XP, when you have an attachement, it can not
be dragged into the web  folders.

Office and SPS and My Network Places all support WebDAV. Most other programs
use controls that don't support WebDAV.
