Sharepoint, Access 2010 & Word 2003

Q: Sharepoint, Access 2010 & Word 2003


Is there a way to connect Access and Sharepoint together so that the following can happen.

User adds a new record to an Access 2010 database published onto Sharepoint
They then run a mail merge from Word 2003 which picks up the new record.
At the moment only 1 PC is running Office 2010 and Windows 7. The rest are still Office 2003 and Win XP, hence the use of Sharepoint.

Preferred Solution: Sharepoint, Access 2010 & Word 2003

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


I hope someone can help me with my problem.

I have a database in Access 2010 which has been published to Sharepoint 2010.
The users of the database only have Office 2003 installed on their PCs with no upgrade in sight.

Is there anyway to connect a Word 2003 mail merge document to the Access 2010 database? I've tried connecting via New Source and selecting ODBC DSN but it only displays files from Office 2003. If I use Other/Advanced I'm not sure what the location of the data source should be. I'm guessing it would be on the sharepoint server, but I'm not sure.

Any help gratefully received.

Hi All,
I would like to know is there is any way i can Integrate of Access 2007 , Sharepoint 2010 and Info Path 2010, because as far as my knowledge we can upload Access 2007 into Sharepoint 2010. In Sharepoint i cannot able to use Access 2007 forms so i need to create another good looking way of showing the access lists.
Can you please anyone help me how i can implement this and if we can what are the requirements need to be done, like tools required and steps for the implementation.
If anyone can suggest some books also i can able to read it and learn it myself.
All the response are welcome and thanks for all your support.

A:Integration of Access 2007 , Sharepoint 2010 and Info Path 2010

I see no one is offering anything on this post. Not a great site for SharePoint(SP) information. But SP its self is relatively new for developers. We can't afford real SP developers so se make our own. Not a great plan but we are supporting a large SP site.

I think with Access 2007 the best approach is to use it to update list and make reports from list. There is no integration to InfoPath forms that I know of. You have to build them on top of your list with SP Designer.

I did find this video in my favorites that says publish access 2007 to SP2010. I haven't whatch recently...
If you really need Access (in SP) you have to go to 2010. I waited till Access and SP 2010 were available on a test site and build a relatively simple db with a couple of reports and queries that did funcion correctly (without too much alteration). I did have to key each table before it would 'publish'. The 'publish' wizard will walk you thru needed fixes. I looked for the DB to refresh my memory but someone has rebuilt the test site and dropped it.

Any way good luck. I wish I had some recent experience on the issue to offer. Maybe this will 'bump' your thread and get some more information!

Looking for comments on your experience using SharePoint 2010 and linking to\from MS Access. It seems there are many methods to push/pull data between\within these two products.

Our organization is upgrading from SP2007 to SP2010 and I've been taxed to review options available SP2010 and MS Access 2010/2007 and see what might be some 'best practices' and solutions to persue.

I have googled and read/watched many articles and videos discribing THEORIES and simple examples of how SP and MSA can work. I'm looking for comments from a real application not Contoso or TradeWinds (what ever that sample database is).

I'm looking for good and bad. Links to blogs or other post are welcomed.

Please help point me in the right direction.  I checked the File association on Internet settings and document type docx is associated with Word, but it won't open.

Try refining this symptom description.  What exactly do you mean by "it won't open"?  Answering that might explain why you are posting this in an IE forum.  E.g. right-click, Copy Shortcut whatever it is that you are calling
a "broken link" and Paste it here.
Otherwise, try right-click, Save target as... to put the file into your Downloads (Ctrl-j) and then use right-click, Properties to find its
full path and name.  Note that that would be quite different from what the Copy Shortcut step would have shown.
Next I suspect that the Set Associations GUI tool may not be showing you the correct information.  FWIW it certainly doesn't show me the correct information in W8.1.  So, I would try checking if you have an explicit association and file type combination
by using the assoc and ftype commands in a cmd window.  In fact, instead of just showing the ftype for the current association I would use this:

I normally use Word 2003 for documents, although I use Outlook 2010. This morning I opened a Word 2010 document and after quite a while of some sort of an installation, I was able to open the Word 2010 document. I did not think too much of it, except that later I was sending an e-mail and attached a Word 2003 document and when I went to check it (i.e. open it up) it opened in Word 2010. How do I disable Word 2010 as my default program to open Word documents. I do not want to uninstall the program, but at this point I am not ready to learn how to use Word 2010.

Windows 7 Professional Edition Service Pack 1 Build 7601
Microsoft Office 2010

My user has spent years building her Auto-Text feature within Word 2003 to the point it is now, but her company just bought her a new Windows 7 Pro machine with Office 2010 installed. She asked that I migrate her Auto-Text data to Word 2010. After researching on google.com I found that this data is stored in a Normal.dot file and this file needs to be migrated to (in Windows 7)
C:\Users\<User Name>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Office.

Having done this, I now find the Normal.dot file I placed there in this location, as well as a new Normal.dot file that Word 2010 has created, but the two aren't merging. I see the new file has macros enabled... Does anyone have any ideas on how to merge these files into one file useable by Word 2010?


A:Help with migrating a Word 2003 file to Word 2010

Normal.dot is the global template for Microsoft Word and is stored in different locations on the system based on the version of Windows and Word.

You dont want to merge them you want to backup the existing normal.dot file to something like normal.old.
Then replace the file in the correct location, which I cant research for you right now.

The bad thing about doing things like this is that if normal.dot gets corrupted, all the work put in to this is lost!

I have a new issue that has come up since we converted an Access database to 2007 file format.
Here is the history.

We have an access database that was created in the old file format. In that database there is a button that opens up word and a mail merge file. Word's mail merge then uses a query from the access database to populate the mail merge document.

We recently converted the Access database to the Office 2007 file format and now the merge process will not work.
I have tried to relink the files and have done some research and it appears that the DDE way of connecting is no longer used in Office 2007. I did finally get to the point where I could see the queries i needed but once I try to open that data source Word give me a general error that it can not open the data source.

How can I get these merge files working again?

PS. We are running Windows XP if that is needed.

We are quickly moving to office 2010 also but that uses the same file format as 2007 so I assume it won't be an issue. Any help you can give me would be GREAT!.

Hi, I have set up a new Access 2010 database (saved as .accdb) (copying tables, forms and queries from my current one then deleting the old data and modifying a lot of fields). I have a query in with some simple calculations. All the calculations work perfectly in Access. When I merge this into Word 2010 (set up as a letter document) it doesn?t use/show the correct data.

The calculated fields in the query are ?number of people * price tea & coffee = cost tea & coffee? and ?number of people * price buffet = cost buffet". I then use these costs in the same query to work out ?VAT? (another calculated field adding up the calculated "cost tea & coffee" and calculated "cost buffet" as well as a number of other non-calculated fields and multiplying the total by 0.2) and ?Total Cost? (a calculated field adding up various non-calculated fields, the calculated "cost tea & coffee", calculated "cost buffet" and the calculated VAT field).

There are two errors in the data that ends up in the merged Word document:
The "VAT" doesn?t add in the two calculated fields, it only uses the data from non-calculated fields in the query.
Also the "Total Cost" doesn?t add in any of the calculated fields (teas & coffees, buffet and VAT), it only uses non-calculated fields from the query.

It doesn?t ping up any error messages. Why is it changing the data between Access (where the query works per... Read more

My company was using Office 2003 until 4 months ago when they moved to Office 2010. When they install Office 2010 Office 2003 was left on the machines so that we currently have both versions installed. I have developed and deployed several databases since Go Live, all in Access 2010, and all was going fine until Office 2003 was uninstalled from several machines and when they tried to open the database they got:

"Execution of this application has stopped due to a run-time error.
The application can’t continue and will be shut down."

I went all thought the code and couldn't find anything so on a whim our IT guy, the one that had removed Office 2003 reinstalled it and BAM, working again.

I have no clue as to what is going on here, Shared DLL, a Reference that's 2003, nothing. i need any thoughts as to where to look and what it might possibly be.


A:Solved: Access 2010 / Access 2003 Issue

When you uninstalled Access 2003 did you re-install or repair Access 2010, Office overwrites certain dll files so that the one in current use has control, if you then uninstall it the dll files do not necessarily return control to 2010, hence re-installing 2003 also re-installed the dll files.
Normally you can't run both versions of Access at the same time due to this problem.

since I installed SP1 for Office 2010 I have problems with opening some (not all!) older Word documents created with Word 2003 (*.doc). I get a message that Word can't read the document and it is probably corrupt.

On a other client (same OS, Office 2010 without SP1) I can open the same document without difficulty.

Has anyone an idea?

Thank a lot

Open Word, select File?> Open
Choose the corrupted file (but don?t open it yet)
You will notice that next to where it says ?Open?, there is a little drop-down arrow. Click on this and change the option to ?Open and Repair?, then click on it.

Does anyone know of a way to force Word 2010 to save all files as .doc files not .docx for any user that ever logs in to a pc?

I know it's simple to save this setting for a given user but I need to do it for everyone that ever sits at a given pc....


A:Force Word 2010 backwards compatibility to 2003 for all users

I would create a file doc.reg and save it in C:\whatEverLocation\

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
Than I would start a Task Schedule (taskschd.msc) and "Create Task"
(NOT Basic task!!!).

Check "Run with highest privileges" on General tab.
Triggers tab: At log on - Any user.
Actions tab: Start a program.
. Program/script: %windir%\System32\regedt32.exe
. Add arguments (optional): /s "C:\whatEverLocation\doc.reg"

Reg file gives us desired setting in a file form that can be easily imported for any current user.
12.0 is for Office 2007
14.0 is for Office 2010
15.0 is for Office 2013

Task schedule allows us to create a task that will run for any user of the current Windows system with administrative privileges (when corresponding options are selected).
regedt32 will import desired setting for the current user silently (/s).

User can still change this option manually later on, but the next time this user log in, the same setting from the file will be imported and user's custom setting will be overridden.

I want to merge 1 record from Access 2003 to Word 2003. After trying everything, I finally was able to get a process working where I opened Word and then ran a Word macro to run the merge, passing . However, it stopped working, and I can't figure out why. I haven't changed anything.

The problem is the same one that all the other attempts run into - Word 2003 won't let me connect to the database when the merge file is opened, if a record is open in Access.

I tried having my code in Access close the form, but that didn't work. However, if I manually close all the forms, so only the database window is open, then I can open the merge form manually in Word without any problem.

When I run the macro, Word askes me to connect to the database, then bombs out, saying it is locked or Admin hasn't given permission.

Anyone know a way to get Access to merge to Word?

A:Merge Access 2003 to Word 2003

Have you change from XP to Vista or a later version of Windows? OS security changed the way things behave in the newer Windows operating systems.

Connecting to an open file isn't the best practice anyway. Forms are often linked to tables which is probably why closing the forms works for you. A possible solution, if its important to keep the database open, is to make a copy of the table thats desired for the merge and update the copy as needed.

I've read postings from OBP, Cristobal and others about the down sides of OLE, how it bloats a database and so forth. With that under my belt, I nevertheless have a need to inlcude Word docs in the Reports created by my Access 2003 database.

The spec is as follows:

The application is to provide a sales quotation tool. Users will add a quote by choosing the customer, adding parts to the quote and choosing pricing mechanics, Thats all easy to do and in fact is nearly complete. The user can then, by selecting one or more tick boxes, choose from a range of pre-formatted product literature which will be included in the output quote that is created as a report (then spooled to PDF). The pre-formatted product literature content is not needed to be visible in the form.

The product lit files are Word docs.There are about 30 or so of these different Word docs and they are stored on a central server (same path for each doc), so I see no problem in having a table containing the filenames as text file names with full paths.

So, when the report is run, the quote is produced, with full pricing and ALSO with the chosen word documents in all of their glory.

What is the best way to do this? Can it even be done at all?

Suggestions on a post card!

We have an existing access database that crunches some reports from Quickbooks into a usable chunk of info. It basically shows all of the open purchase orders for a given sales order, where they are coming from, and when they are expected to arrive. Its used as a daily reference to make sure orders are on track to be shipped out on time.

We also use a hand-genearated word document to follow orders as they make their way through the warehouse. This document lists much of the info in the reports from above (SO, POs, Vendors, and Dates), with a bunch of other fields that are filled in by hand as the order goes on its merry way.

The problem is that on any given SO, there could be from 1 - 20 POs. I can create a report easy enough to list the info, but that doesnt give me the ability to fill in blanks and save the info.

Is there a way to make a report INTO a word document? Or is there a way to pull the key info as well as the sub lines (the POs) to a word document?

I'm "scundered" to only now discover a whole raft of text effects are available within Word 2010 except I can't access them!!

I've gone through the options and checked they're all in the menu ok and even tried to set up a new group and put them in there, but same problem. The button shows but as unavailable. I've no issues with any other buttons in the program being like this but given the bulk of my Word usage is text editing, I'm SO upset to have not spotted this a LONG time ago, as no doubt the beta will soon be closing and I've no means to afford the full pkg.

New to InfoPath, but have been doing some 'how to' lessons at work, and we jotted all notes down. Went away, and created the Infopath form, which worked.

Managed to publish to our Sharepoint site, and then when we clicked on our form's Submit button, its supposed to email people, and it didn't.

So, went back to the original form, and all our rules have gone. Someone from IT just had a look when we said it wasn't working, noticed the rules were not there and said that is the reason. I explained we put them there, so he put one back in so we could get it working, and he published it again.

It worked, apart from emailing.

After he went (was doing this via Lync), the rules had gone again.

We saved the rules before publishing the first time, is there something that is needed to select to stop this from happening?

Many thanks

I was recently put in charge of managing SharePoint for my organization and have wanted to post a batch file for individuals to be able to use. It is saying that I amnot allowed to save a .bat file for users to access. My objective of this .bat file is to allow my users to open internet explorer and have about 20 separate web pages all pull up in different tabs. Any ideas of how to get around this if SharePoint is not allowing me to do this? I have the .bat file written already, and I have also converted it to powershell too... But to no avail that does not work either.

A:SharePoint 2010 and Batch (.bat) Files

Sharepoint will not allow certain types of files to be uploaded - .BAT being one of them.

The simplest way to do something close to this is to save the .bat file to a network share location where everyone (who needs it) has access, and then put a "link" to the .bat file under the Links section in Sharepoint. IE will most likely force a user to "save" the file locally though. Which means that they must save the file, then double-click on it to run - so this sounds like it would defeat the purpose of what you are trying to do.

The only other suggestion would be to put each individual URL link under the links section in Sharepoint and put that link page under each user's "Bookmarks" (or Favorites).

I don't see any questions in here about SharePoint but wonder if anyone can help with this one. We have a corporate SharePoint that we create systems on for various business users. We do not have server access to the Share only front-end.

For one of our applications I created an email announcement list that is emailed by a SQL Server Integration Services package task. When our package runs it sends an email that displays the message on the webpart frame above the data view as to the current state of play with the data.

This is fine except that when a user creates a custom view of the data view, which they do a lot, this Webpart does not show up above the data view. I could add it manually but this would be an administration nightmare for me trying to maintain and delete view on 8 different sites with no idea when and where views are being created.

So I wonder if anyone can hazard a guess as to how I can make this Webpart appear on each custom view as well as the default view (it is imported here as a Webpart); I imagine there is going to be some sort of programming involved, which I don't mind to much but not got much experience in doing this in SharePoint?

Thanks for any input

I am designing a sharepoint site for my office. I am giving each department their own page on the site. The problem I am running into is giving a person specific rights for a page. I.E. the director of the department needs to be able to modify their page to add, remove and modify their page only and view only for all other pages in the site. Any direction would be appreciated. Thanks in adavance.

A:Sharepoint 2010 Rights per page

I'm a backup support with SharePoint (SP), by no means an expert. The group has struggled with getting permissions managable. This is a large site collection (7000 members and 100+ sites) and has gone through several configurations over the years. The big thing to learn first is to make multiple site and use a 'site collection'. They learned the hard way.

Using multiple sites (not pages) for the departments allows permissions to work like they want. This also protects the 'other sites' from someone screwing up and taking the whole thing down. Each site has Owner(Full Control), Member(Contibute) and Guest (Read). A mix of Active Directory and SP groups seem to work best. Owners can control membership through AD and the SP group controls and where these groups go in SP.

Some departments have a development site (and a developer) where things(business rules for one) can be tested and not affect every one else. Breaking members out of 'group permissions' is a constant head ache, especially if a member leaves or changes department. That's where mixing SP groups and AD helps. I.E. when removed from AD group they are removed from SP. If you use only AD groups its hard to see\understand the permission on the SP side.

The SP team is understaffed, undertrained but still keeps the SP site collection running and most people happy..Our organization get a lot of production out of SP. AND do not let it become 'document storage'. There are ... Read more

If I upgrade only the Outlook part of my Office 2003 installation to Outlook 2010 will the "Ribbon" style menu of Outlook 2010 be installed in my remaining Office 2003 menus?

I accept that at some point I will probably have to get to grips with the "Ribbon" style menus introduced initially in Office 2007. However, for the time being I would prefer to keep the classic menu layouts in Access 2003 and Excel 2003.

Aud Bint, No Installing outlook 2010 will not add anything to the office 2003 products that you have installed.
One problem that I noticed with office 2003 and outlook 2010 is that Sometimes after a microsoft update where they update some of the office products and outlook. You have to go to installed programs and repair the outlook 2010. It happened almost any time that microsoft updates were run and the office products were also updated.

Not sure what I did but I recently modified a document on our SharePoint and saved it locally. Now when I open that master document on SharePoint it opens the one I saved locally a while back and asks if I want to update the server. I've searched on various forums for a fix for this but have yet to find a solution.

How can I open these master documents on sharepoint without having it ask to update the server. I'd hate to accidentally save over the master document.

I'm using MS Office 2013, and SharePoint 2010.

I have created a report in Access 2003 which shows each customer's invoice on a separate page. I want to transfer this to Word 2003 so I can use the mail-merge facility to email it to customers. However, when I use the Office Links icon & select Publish It with Microsoft Word (the only option for reports) it puts all the invoices simultaneously into the document rather than retaining the separate pages.

Does anyone know a way around this, please.

Both applications were written in Office 2000, and work perfectly. My client has now converted to Word (only) 2003 and the mailmerge no longer functions. Questions:

I've created a new enterprise WIKI and uploaded documents to the 'Documents' Library on the WIKI site. If I browse to the document library and click on one, it opens the document within the browser (Office Web Apps are installed). It allows me to view and edit the document inside of the browser without having Word installed on my machine. However, if I create a link to the document on a WIKI page, it prompts to Open or Save (Open meaning download and open in Word). It only will open in Word and not in the browser.

For some reason I can't get it to open within the browser even through the default action for both libraries are to open documents in the browser. Is there another configuration option I am missing? Maybe a setting when I create the link? Or is this just the way it works?
This is Sharepoint 2010 Enterprise. The documents in question are Office 2010 .docx files.

The way I am creating these links:
Create Wiki page, highlight text for link, Click Insert, Link > From Sharepoint, double click on document I want it to open. Save page.

we are about to upgrade from IE9 to IE11. While testing we found a problem when opening our sharepoint 2010 site. At the bottom we get the following message:
"This webpage want to run "NameCtrlClass" which isn't compatible with Internet Explorers enhanced security features. if you trust this site, you can disable Enhanced Protected Mode for this site and allow the control to run." 
You can choose between "Run control" oder "don't run". But the result stays: The message still pops up every time.
I searched the web and realized that the NameCtrlClass is used to display the availability of a person in sharepoint. As this feature is not used we disabled the NameCtrlClass through GPO. But its not helping either :(
Ah, we are using Office 2010, and the NameCtrlClass Version is 14.0.6109.5000. So we do not have the common error, that the NameCtrlClass wasn't updated while installing Office 2013.
Any ideas how we solve this problem?
Thanks a lot for every hint

A:IE11 - NameCtrl Class not compatible on Sharepoint 2010

It is unclear from your question whether the
"This webpage want to run "NameCtrlClass" which isn't compatible with Internet Explorers enhanced security features. if you trust this site, you can disable Enhanced Protected Mode for this site and allow the control to run."
occurs with IE9 or IE11.
you can try
1. File>Properties .... which IE security zone does the sharepoint site map to (expected Intranet).
2. Tools>Internet Options>Security tab, click "Reset all zones to default"
then Intranet sites icon, uncheck "Enable Protected Mode"... close all open IE windows and restart for the full changes to take affect.
3. Tools>Manage Addons>Show all addons..... locate NameCtrlClass in the list and double click on it to show its properties... also make sure that is enabled.
Please post back with your answers to my questions if your sharepoint site currently does not map to the Intranet zone.
