Description skarg 2007-02-07 13:25:31 UTC
Tried to upload a MS-Word file created by Writer onto a Microsoft
Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 server.  This server refused to upload it with
the following error:
Unable to update the information in the Microsoft Office document BACnet
Committee ASHRAE SSPC 135/ProposedChanges/Active-Proposals/STK/stk-019-2.doc.
After opening the downloaded file with MS Word, and saving it, the file could be
uploaded to Sharepoint.

I will attach both files.

Framework issue.
Comment 4 thorsten.martens 2007-02-07 14:38:15 UTC
Not a framework issue ! Problem occurs iwhen trying to upload/save the file
which was created with OOo. Everything works fine when the file is opened and
saved with Word. So it looks like there is a problem within the creation/filter
for the *.doc export. So there seems to be a difference between both atached files.
Comment 5 michael.ruess 2007-02-08 16:41:51 UTC
MRU->SKARG: Is it possible for you to store other files/documents created by OOo
onto this Sharepoint server?
Comment 6 skarg 2007-02-09 10:17:52 UTC
The PowperPoint could be uploaded as is, while both Word and Excel had
to be opened and actively saved before they could be uploaded.

The Error message was always the same as with STK-019:
Form Validation Error

Reassigned to JSK.

Nice. Another challenge. 

This will take quite some time before i can actively investigate the issue. I
set a preliminary target.
Comment 9 joerg.skottke 2007-11-28 11:51:37 UTC
-> SBA: We have something special here. Apparently MS puts some identifier into
their documents that we know nothing about.

Could be a nice feature for 3.0 - if simple enough to implement...

SBA->MBA: Please have a look, thanks.
Comment 11 Mathias_Bauer 2008-07-25 13:59:26 UTC
Tobias, one for you.
Comment 12 tkr 2009-03-09 09:35:00 UTC
Henning please have a look. Btw: If you using WSS 3.0 instead of WSS 2.0 it
works fine.
