Does it have to be a list? If the documents are stored in a library, the form fields can be defined as library columns. Within Word these library columns/fields can be inserted into the form via Quickparts > Document Properties. The user edits the document and fills in the form. The form fields are document properties and will be visible in SharePoint when ...

It is very easy to create a control or a web part and place it on the page. The control would contain a button with code behind that uses OpenXML to generate the Word document. I've done similar things and it's very easy. Just create a Word document using Word and format it as you like, then use the Document Reflector from the OpenXML SDK v2+ to generate a ...

It's actually possible to rename/move a file, but you must do it programmatically using client object model or server object model - File.MoveTo Here is an ugly example (didn't test it, might be some typo): using Microsoft.SharePoint.Client; .... using(var ctx = new ClientContext("http://yoursharepoint/web_containing_library/")) { var lib = ...

I don't see how this would be possible as changing the file type from DOC to DOCX would create a new item...i.e. you can't change the name of a SPFile object. Your best bet is to probably write some code or a script to convert the docs as you migrate them to a new library along with their metadata and then retire the original doclib.

Try setting the schedule for the timer job to DateTime.Now, and update the job definition. Should execute it immediately that way.

Try to open SharePoint Central Administration -> System Settings -> Manage Servers in this farm. There are a list of running services. Check that word automation services is running. If not, go to the Central Administration -> System Settings -> Manage services on server and run this service.

I used reflection to force the Automation Services to execute immediately. Works fine in our environment :-) http://devtopics.de/2013/11/18/making-sharepoint-2010-and-word-automation-services-convert-to-pdf-immediately-for-real/

Not out of the box. You would need to write your own PDF processor that accomplishes this either in an Event Receiver where the generated PDFs go. You could also create a custom action that you use instead of the word automation services to convert to PDF and accomplish this at the same time.

In SharePoint 2010, Microsoft added a new service called AddWikiPage to the Lists web service. With a little bit of Visual Basic code, you can use the XMLHttpRequest object provided by Microsoft's XML SDK, to add new Wiki pages with custom content. Add a reference to "Microsoft XML, v6.0" in the Tools -> References menu in your Visual Basic Editor, and ...

Fixed: After testing both results I was able to confirm that the two files (the generated .pdf and the manually converted .pdf) are indeed identical.

The simplest method would probably be to create an InfoPath form for your list. For the Title field, set the default value to concat("Daily Activity - ", today(), " - ", userName()) Uncheck "Refresh value when formula is recalculated", otherwise editing an old item will change its title and potentially overwrite someone else's form. That might be ...

If you don't want to write code... Use SharePoint Designer to create a workflow that is triggered when the item is created (assuming they can't edit it afterwards in which case you would need to trigger on update as well). Inside of the workflow you can set the value of the Title field using the "Set Field in Current Item" action and a combination of ...

There is a custom action for workflows capable of that using Word Automation Service. http://sp2010wordautomation.codeplex.com/

You are talking about Information Rights Management (IRM) which is supported in SharePoint 2010, though not very well for PDFs. If these were office documents, then the IRM would work as expected but PDFs generally open outside of the Microsoft ecosystem in either Adobe Acrobat or the Foxit Reader and to the best of my knowledge, neither of these work well ...

Here's one way I've been able to "convert" a DOC to DOCX, although it's all manual, is to Open the doclib in Explorer view/open in Explorer Open the file in question (check-out if needed) "Convert the file" Save the file locally Rename the file extension in Explorer view (if you have it opened in Word, SP will complain that the file is locked) Upload the ...
