This problem is caused by differences in the SourceID property of the metadata fields. If you compare the value of SourceID on a field of a content type in one library with the same field of a content type in another library you will see that they differ, and they are used inside the Word document when referencing the metadata field. The solution is to set ...

After some researching I found this blog addressing "Could not open (url)": http://petervdberg.blogspot.com/2011/01/how-to-enable-save-and-send-option-in.html If you are using Windows 2008R2 this could be solution. I checked my machine and 'Desktop Experience' feature was already installed so I was unable to reproduce your problem.

Co-authoring will be revolutionary I reckon, it's in my 'top 5 drivers for clients to upgrade to 2010'. In answer to your questions: SharePoint Foundation is fine. Yes web and rich client (i.e. Word 2010) both support co-authoring, the experience is basically the same from what I've seen. Probably, but remember that whoever hosts the functionality also ...

No, because the SPServices Cascading dropdowns functions on list forms. To my knowledge, you can't specify metadata before creating a document. You could require check in/out on the document library to force an item be checked in before being available and this would let you use the SPServices cascading dropdowns since that's effectively an editform. I'm ...

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 ...

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 = ctx.Web....

Not sure about other examples but this one works for me (using application page) Application page markup contains: <input type="file" id="InputFile" runat="server" class="ms-fileinput" /> Code behind (eg. on button click): var fStream = InputFile.PostedFile.InputStream; var fileName = InputFile.PostedFile.FileName; var contents = new byte[fStream....

You need to do server side processing of this. Cannot be done in any (decent) way using client script (JavaScript). I suggest you move this feature to an Event Receiver and use the OpenXML SDK to count the words.

This can be done, but you need to use one Content Type for each template needed. Create a new content type. Give it whatever name you would like, but set dropdown properties as defined. Would suggest to define a group name for these content types (I used Test Type with Template). Next go to the Advanced Settings for this new content type. This is ...

You do not have access to the DIP in Office Web Apps. Since you're using the web UI already it's easy to go the the item in the library and change it's properties there. If you need more advanced DIP's (for instance built with InfoPath) then you need to modify the edit, new and view forms of the page to get the "same" experience as in the full fledged Office ...

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 ...

If you're running SharePoint 2010 enterprise then you should use word automation services see Convert Word Document to PDF Using SharePoint and Word Automation Services

That is just the way it is in my experience when the library is set to not require check out, which is the default. Even if check out is not required, you can check any document out to put a file lock on it so others can't make changes while you have it. Try toggling the library option to require check out and see if that makes any difference.

Not 100% sure what you mean by "She wants the document opened as a new (macro enabled) document as if the word template were opened in Windows Explorer", but what I think you need is Content Types. Create a custom Content Type (based on the Document content type as the parent) for each document template you want to have. Then in the Content Type settings ...

Unfortunately this would not be possible. Those pages do not use the master page and the only way to get custom code to those is with an App for Office. Those, however, wouldn't load the Google Analytics tracking code on every page request. If this were on-premise, you could do some custom stuff in IIS to make it happen. But there isn't anything you can ...

You can use OpenXML sdk for creating word documents. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd440953(v=office.12).aspx Instead of saving the document, you should create it using a MemoryStream and use that Stream while uploading the document to the library. Here is a similar thread that discuss this approach

Follow the steps... Check out the word document in SharePoint. Open the document in MS-Word for editing. Modify the document and go to File TAB. There you will find "Check In" & "Discard Check Out" buttons.

You could require content approval and turn on track changes. (In Word 2013, you can require a password to turn off track changes.) Then the person who has to approve the document can accept or reject individual changes once the document comes to them. Or, there's a "collect feedback" workflow that will route a document for comments.

It's still kept with the document, it's just not where you'd expect it to be. When you open the document from the document library and view the metadata using the Document Information Panel, you'll get options to switch from: Doc Properties:Server (SharePoint), Doc Properties (Original Doc Properties), and Advanced Properties. Within the Advanced ...

I looked at this once for 2007, but I must confess I've not tried for 2010. The best advice I can give based on my 2007 experience is: to create a Word Template that restricts the styles a user can use. avoid images entirely. don't be afraid to consider 3rd party converters - or writing your own. if you've already got those Word files full of content, ...
