<layer>So what are you asking for then? How much help do you expect if you don't understand the code to do it?
I'm aware that modifying the default sharepoint code will modify all forms in the site (or more specifically all forms that use EditForms.aspx) and this is the behaviour I want.
I want to use workflow.asmx to modify a workflow
The AlterToDo method should be used according to http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc296356.aspx[^]
but not very clear..
I have used lists.asmx to retrieve the task lists, after I get the Id, I want to use the AlterToDo to modify the tsk workflow.
What are the parameters to be used here
Some start will be really helpful.

First and foremost you should not be working directly on your production environment.
Second, don't ask for urgent or immediate help, or any variation there of. This is a volunteer site and people will answer you, or not, on their time, not yours. Most of the time when asked in this manner the question is ignored.
Please clarify, the problem is saving the Infopath form, not the data entered into the form? You have verified the permissions on the list correct?
good evening all
i am Experiencing a serious problem i am exporting data table data into excel spread sheets .for some active directory users its works fine and it is able to export the data and there is no error .and for some people it is showing 403 error i have given full permissions
I'm working for a firm who has given me a job in their sharepoint team.
I'm not a beginner in sharepoint moss but i'm neither a expert.
But this task i have been given is " make this spreadsheet online in Sharepoint" !!
My first thougth was - Aha this must be easy with Infopath
I Know a little bit of Infopath but the form must be a webform because these inspectors don't have office or infopath on their PC or tablets. Neither will the intern guys use infopath or excel. In my firm we use Office 2003 and Infopath 2003 certainly have its limits with Moss 2007
Here is what I have come up with so far:
Make a subsite under the exsisting sharepoint Site Or make a Site collection under the exsisting sharepoint Site. I'm not aware of the differents/ advances-disadvances between these option. What do you suggest?
All the access- and informations rights should be inherited from Main Site. Is it possible?
It must be possible to save the work and proceed later.
Some of the data in this form are pre filled with data from a SQL (I must design it). It should be shown in dropdowns in the webform
The web form must be a webpart I guess?
Ok I Create a webform as an webpart.
Now i'm not shure about storing the data.
Should it be a new database or can I use the database from sharepoint?
Should it be stored procedures or xml ( Im not a database designer and i'm lost here)?
By the way- which tools do you prefere for database design.?
After they have submited, the data is stored and then the inspectors is taking to frontpage.
They are finished with their job.
Ok then the other department
This department should be able to monitoring, edit, add, generate some report/views/list.This is not public
They should be able to add/edit/delete values in the dropdowns as i mentioned before.
How to do that. A webpart for every dropdown?
Beside that, they should see a table which is a summarized list of all the inspectors input.
Sorting the columns is a must. A total summarize list is default. (ex. show total errors during an inspection, total inspections etc.)
Three of the the columns must be able to be sort ( Month or Year or Factory ). Should I use Jquery or Ajax?
There will be some diffenrent views . The views should show some data in a list (not exel, pdf or word but raw data), based on the input from the user.
The views should be in a dashboard.
I'm not quit shure what a dashboard is in Sharepoint.
But here is what I like it to be:
You should be able to maintain the input data. ( a mini admin site)
There will be some chart display based on the data input.
It should be possible to generate some report based on the data input
Does the solution had to be hardcoded or can sharepoint help me? Report Dashboard?
By the way - How can i import the spreadsheet to SQL. Is there a easy way?
Do I have to make the database first and then import?
The serialnumber for the item in a inspection have both letters and digits. ex. cv-2340-11
I like to use the serialnumber (its uniq) for the primary key in the database.
Is that a problem?
And in the near future other devices could be implemented ex. Tablets and smartphone.
What to be aware of for using other devices?
So many questions- I hope you can help
(I cant believe it - when I write this it seem to be pretty straight but i'm struggle with it - I gues its because of my poor knowledge of Sharepoint development)
SharePoint is an ASP.NET based application, so yes, with some modification, existing ASP.NET pages can be added. SharePoint uses several databases, up to 20, depending on the level and license, plus the content databases for each site collection. These databases contain many tables, 114 for the WSS_Content database, with proprietary structures that can easily destroy a SharePoint farm if inappropriately modified. So the short answer is, don't mess with the SharePoint databases directly. You would be better off leaving the existing databases and connecting to it within your pages, or perhaps using them as external lists via BDC.
I guess what I was trying to get at was after I import my ASP.net site to Sharepoint 2010, I would like the appropriate users to be able to make modifications themselves to the content, etc. If I am still pointed to an external database and have not created lists using BDC the wouldn't be able to modify the content (users who don't have permissions to the database). The only option would be to import the site and create the lists using BDC. But at that point would I have to go back to all my .net pages to have them read from those lists and not directly the database?
If I am still pointed to an external database and have not created lists using BDC the wouldn't be able to modify the content
Why not? You use a connection string just like your existing application. How are you restricting access right now?
Another question is why are you trying to migrate this application to SharePoint? If the data is external and you will continue to use it there, plus its ASP.NET, then what are your hoping to gain from SharePoint?
