  • Will an InfoPath 2007 form with managed code work on SharePoint 2010? Dre

    I have an existing InfoPath 2007 form containing managed code. The form is now published on SharePoint 2007. The form will be edited and created using the InfoPath 2007 client, so no Web Form in this case.

    I plan to migrate to SharePoint 2010. Since InfoPath 2007 is used as client and I do not want to bother the end user with upgrading, I still want to use InfoPath 2007 as client (No client upgrade to InfoPath 2010, yet)

    Is it compatible ? Does it work without modifications? What should I change?

  • I would expect it to work, but you have some interesting variables there so it would be a good idea to plan for some validation before you commit to anything.

    Normally there is some backwards compatibility with office apps. InfoPath is a little different, but the underlying XML schema should be compatible.

  • Just a note, Visual Studio 2010 doesn't support InfoPath 2007 form projects (yet). So if you're planing on using that to write the managed code, you'll have issues.

  • I don't know the details of this on the server side. However InfoPath 2010 allows you to develop forms for either the 2007 client, 2007 Forms Server, 2010 client, or 2010 Forms Services. It also contains a Design Checker that verifies you aren't using features that won't be compatible in your target version.

    From what I've seen nothing much has changed in Forms Services 2010. Like the rest of SharePoint 2010, it's more evolution rather than revolution. I would expect existing forms to work correctly (but as mentioned I haven't tested this).

  • I've created a custom approval workflow using SharePoint Designer 2007. The workflow is attached to a Forms library where InfoPath 2007 forms will be stored. The workflow is getting triggered under the user who is creating (creator) and saving the InfoPath form. I've also created a secondary workflow to manage reminders and escalations. In this case, the creator needs to be part of the site collection owners group for the workflow to complete successfully. This poses a permission issue since I am setting item level permission and granting Read permission to the creator once the form

  • From SharePoint Designer it is possible to modify the edit and display list forms. From the ribbon in ListSettings tab select Design Forms In InfoPath and choose the content type you want to modify forms for. InfoPath will open with a generated form and the form can be modified. My question is when you publish the form from InfoPath to a SharePoint List is it posible to export the list and import it to list in SharePoint Foundation or are the forms dependent on InfoPath ?

  • We are currently doing a POC for a client to use SharePoint 2010 for Records Managment. The client has around 200 content types, and a deep nested file plan of around 500 potential nodes. In order to route documents a peice of metadata called 'File Plan' has been created as a Managed Metadata field which corresponds to the eventual location within the Records Centre folder structure. We will set... = 1.2.3.4 -> Go to specific folder. Unfortunately this is obviously not feasable since there is going to be 200 X 500 rules! I was under the impression that maybe we could create a rule for a parent
