SQL Server – Optimal Infopath SQL integration

In SharePoint there are three types of infopath forms: 1. List level (customizing the existing list) 2. Content type based infopaths and 3. Farm level infopaths Full trustworthy solution … in the above three custom vsta codes is farm level and allowed content type based infopath , I mean the form that we are developing from scratch with the infopath designer.

In this case, we can write the Visual Studio encoding like traditional encoding to connect to SQL Server and call the stored procedure. Otherwise we develop a custom web service for the SQL integration function and can call it up in the infopath form.

With that in mind, for your scenario, instead of managing multiple forms for storing and displaying the built-in SQL data, I would recommend creating an external list that can seamlessly connect to the SQL table for the CRUD operation, and then several create views to display the data in the same list.

Infopath – Add fields to a repeating section that are unique to each section

I have a list of school accreditation standards and an InfoPath form that only shows those on the list that meet the criteria selected in some drop lists and buttons. I'm trying to add some fields that the evaluator has to fill in for each item shown in the form. The problem is that in the repetition section, a field repeats itself instead of providing a separate field for comments for each element.
How can I create a field with different content for each list element in the standards? I keep using the standards for different accreditation events so I can't just add a field to the list.

Migrate repeating sections in Infopath to PowerApps in Office 365

I migrated a site to Office 365 and there was a list using Infopath.

The Infopath form uses repeating sections and is not assigned to a column. Is there a way to recreate the form in Plumsail or Powerapps?

I can create repeating sections in PowerApps / Plumsail and it works well for new items, but I'm not sure how to map the repeating section so that it works for older items. Is there any way to map the repeating sections so that they work for items that already have entries?

Infopath and content type field

I created different types of content in SharePoint.

Then I started editing the different forms for content types in InfoPath. The only field that is not visible is "content type".

Why can't I see the content type under fields? How can I add a content type as a field to the InfoPath form?

For example, If an employee selects the wrong form and has to change the content type, this is not possible in the form.

Kind regards

Infopath validation error on some devices

The client receives a validation error when sending my form in the InfoPath desktop client, but nothing is marked with a red star.

"Some fields were not applied"
or
& # 39; Niektóre reguły never zostały zastosowane & # 39;
Some fields were not applied

The "Show details" button indicates that the required fields were marked with a red asterisk, but the form does not contain any.

All fields are filled and the strangest thing is that this happens to some customers – the rest of them work perfectly.
I have the & # 39; required & # 39; Markings removed in fields that were not present in the form.
The client has already been instructed to delete the "InfoPath Desktop App Cache" folder.

What I didn't try is to delete the server side as stated in the answer to this question.

How can I debug this type of problem and what does it mean that some rules have not been applied?

infopath – Interaction with the forms library using the REST API

I want to retrieve forms from the forms library and use them in an external application. I see a REST API for the document library, but I haven't found any discussion about how to interact with the forms in a forms library using this API.

This response mentions that forms are submitted and that the form itself is submitted. However, the question was not clear. The respondent therefore did not deal with the sending of the form itself, only the sending.

sharepoint enterprise – "This form cannot be opened in a web browser. Use MS Infopath to open this form." Why am I getting this message?

I am creating a simple, ready-to-use workflow for a calendar in SP2010. The content type is ALL, approval – SharePoint 2010. Then when I click Next. I get the message "This form cannot be opened in a web browser. Use MS InfoPath to open this form." I have not used InfoPath. Has anyone else experienced this? I searched for all solutions that are individuals using InfoPath. Is there anything else that causes this?

Use the Infopath form for a project request

I am trying to create an Infopath form and a corresponding Nintex workflow for colleagues to request a new project, but I am stuck. The idea of ​​being a colleague can use the form when something needs to be done. The manager can review / assign an owner / priority level / completion date and then forward the request to the owner to work on. Once the owner is done, he will fill out more information on the form and it will close. The basic workflow would be:

  1. The colleague fills out the form
  2. The manager reviews the form and fills out additional information, including owner and priority
  3. The owner edits the project and updates the form to fill it in after completion

I need a form to fill out some sections from the beginning, while others can be completed later. I don't know how to set it up. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks a lot!

infopath – notification about change of the SharePoint list incorrect

I set up a notification in a SharePoint list to know when new items were created or changes were made.

I noticed that when someone changes any Field in the form, all text field fields indicate a change, although the value has actually not changed.

So there is a gray line that is crossed out. Directly below is exactly the same content, which means that the user has changed the value.

The form was created with InfoPath and I don't remember having had the problem before. See the following example:

Get Infopath in SharePoint online – user's manager

Step 1 – create the second data connection

Create the second data connection to the User Profile service

Click the Data tab on the ribbon, and then select Data Connection. The "Data Connections" dialog box appears. Choose "Add".
Create a new connection to: Receive data – Next>
Where do we want to get the data from: SOAP web service
Enter the location http://yourserver.com/_vti_bin/UserProfileService.asmx?WSDL – Next>
Select an operation: "GetUserProfileByName" – "Next"> "Next"> "Next" (make sure that "Save a copy of the data in the form template" is deactivated).
Give the data connection a name – I named my "Get User Manager Details" (note: also make sure that "Get data automatically when the form opens" is not selected)
then finish.
The second data connection has been established and can now be used to retrieve the manager information.

Step 2 – the mgrAccountName field

  1. Create a field in the main fields – under myFields – and name it mgrAccountName. Right click on myFields and select Add to add the field

  2. Add a default value to the mgrAccountName field over the first data connection (mine is GetUserProfileByName).

– Open the field or group properties for the "mgrAccountName" field and click the "Fx" button to the right of the "Value" field.
– The Insert formula dialog box opens. Select Insert Field or Group.
– Activate the dropdown field under "Fields" in which "Main" is selected and select "GetUserProfileByName". Then click on the plus sign (+) next to "dataFields" and click on the plus sign (+) until there is no symbol (+) left to open. You will see the Value field.
– Select the Value field and click the Filter data button
– When the "Filter data" field opens, click "Add". The "Specific filter conditions" option opens
– Starting from the left – Click on the dropdown box and change the value to "Select field or group". – When the Select field or group field opens, select Name. Then click OK
– The name must be "is equal to" manager.
– Click on the last dropdown box on the right and select Enter text…. and enter manager. Click OK repeatedly until all fields are closed.

The end result is a default value of: Value (Name = "Manager") for the field "mgrAccountName".

By default, the field is the manager account name of the logged in user.

  1. Next we have to add an action to the mgrAccountName – this sets the field value for the data connection "Get User Manager Details" to the value (mgrAccountName) – mmmm … just follow and observe

– Select the mgrAccountName field in the main fields, right-click and select Rules.
– Under Rules, click the New button to create a new rule for the mgrAccountName field. Then choose Action. The action is "Set Field Value". So under Rules, click the Add button, and then click Set Field Value.
– Field: Click the button on the right and select the field from the data connection "Get Users Manager Details".
– Under myFields click on the (+) symbol next to queryFields – and then again under for the next folder – you should now see AccountName – select this and click OK
– Value: Click the Fx button on the right and then click Insert field or group. In the main fields, select the current field (mgrAccountName). Click OK. Close all open fields.

Step 3. The Manager's Full Name field

  1. Create a new field (if you don't already have one) in the main fields. I named my usersMgrName

  2. In the fields, change the Main entry to Get Users Manager Details.
    – Expand the query fields by clicking on the (+) symbol. – Change to the next folder until the AccountName field is displayed. – Select this field.
    – With the Account Name field selected, click the Home tab on the ribbon and then click Manage Rules to add a new rule to the Account Name field. Click New to create the new rule.

We will create two actions, one to query the data connection and the other to set the usersMgrName field.
– Action 1: Select "Add" and then "Query data". Ensure that the data connection "Get user manager details" is selected in the rule details. Click OK".
– Action 2: Select "Add" and then "Set field value". In the field, select the new field that you created for the manager's full name. My name was "usersMgrName".
For the Value field, we need to get the PreferredName data based on the selected manager. To do this, click the Fx button on the right. The Insert Formula field is displayed.
– Click "Insert Fields or Group" and select the "Get User Manager Details" connection from the list of fields. – Expand "dataFields" completely until you can no longer expand.
– Select the "Value" field in the "ValueData" directory and click on "Filter data".
– Click the Add button". Then in "Set filter conditions" click on the first dropdown box on the left and select "Select field or group …".
– In the connection data source "Get Users Manager Details" select the entry Name. – Click OK
– In the drop-down box on the far right under Specifiy Filter Conditions, select the Type text option and enter PreferredName. Click OK, and then click OK
– You should now see the formula – Value (Name = "PreferredName") – Click OK to finish – and then click OK again.
