Publish Infopath form with CodeBehind


When I publish a normal infopath form without code behind, I was able to publish them from Info path editor it self and on click of 'New' in forms library, i was able to view the form in the Browser. But when i tried to publish with Codebehind and Click 'New' the form only opened in a New editor!

When i googled for the same, came to know that when we add code behind logic (say with C#) first we need to publish and later we need to approve the info path form through Sharepoint Administration.

There are four steps to be implemented:

  • Publish the Template to the File System
  • Upload the Template to Central Administration Form Templates Library
  • Activate the Form Template in your Site Collection
  • Associate the Form Template with the Form Library
It is clearly given in the following Link: Click

How to connect to SQL Server Desktop Engine Remotely

Hi all,

Lesson learnt for the day is when you try to connect to SQL Server Desktop Engine (MSDE) remotely, the scenario where i tried to connect was from SSIS - Sql Server Integration Services. I tried to create a OLEDB connection. When i tried to create the OLEDB connect the same like we use to do for SQL server; the following error message was shown

Solution: When i googled, came to know that we need to give the Server name with instance name when we create a connection.

like: <ServerName>/<InstanceName>
And we need to give the database name if not displayed in drop down list.

Hope It helps

MOSS: document-library file upload limitation


When we created shared folder for our business users, I had a doubt about the file upload limitations which might occur when our users upload files. When i googled for the same found that the default size is set to be 50MB (maxRequestLength="51200"). and to increase the limit we just need to configure the xml file in the following location

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS\web.config

Config file:
<location path="upload.aspx">
<httpRuntime maxRequestLength="2097151" />


Hope it helps
