I have a client that has no electronic backup files for hard copies of booklets that require periodic changes. In fact, the problem is we don't know what format the original was created in. Some of these books have been around for years. We have a an old xerox scanner utilizing 'Document and Scan MakeReady' version 3.0.0.16 software. We don't have the CD. It doesn't appear to be available - I assume it's really old. It is running on a Windows 2000 Pro PC. The value of this existing software, is it's ability to allow edits from a received  scan document without changing the original format. At this point - after edits, it can be printed prior to having to save it to a file format , like PDF or DOC. In other words, it allows you to cut/paste changes without altering the original format.

Does anybody have a low cost solution providing the above functionality? Is there an OCR out there that will allow you to make changes prior to committing to a file format.

I've created a very basic fillable pdf form out of an excel sheet.  I am having trouble with two different columns of fields. Other columns of fields with the exact same properties do not have these problems.  Here is the problem:

When I test the form, in either Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro or Adobe Reader, I try to delete numbers from the fields after I enter them (to see if ctrl+z can be used to backup a step). I can delete information from some of the fields this way, but others will not delete. If I try to delete using Edit-->Undo, it lets me click edit/undo, but the information is still in the field.  When I go back to the field and click on it, the data disappears. When I click somewhere else in the form, that same data reappears.  I've searched online and the only similar problem seems to be data that is not shown in a field until clicked. Mine is sort of opposite. "Deleted" data shows in a field until you click it.

Thanks for your help.

This server hosts a document management system based on SQL, but also has a large directory of documents.  The program offers full text indexing of the documents using the server's indexing service.  There are currently just over 1 million documents included in that index.  We have started having issues with the index developing corruption, at which point the server detects it and starts a reindex.  With the number of documents that indexing takes several days.  The directory with the catalog (in ProgramData) is excluded from backup and from antivirus scanning.  I can't find any definitive reason for the corruption.  I also can't find any definitive advice on the recommended size or number of documents for the service to work well.  Does anyone have experience using the index service for very large numbers of documents?  Does it work well?  Are there any reasons for the corruption that I might be overlooking?  Thanks!

Hi,
I'm looking for a collaborative platform for my enterprise.
The platforme must mainly include:
  • Project and Task Management/Tracking
  • Activity stream
  • Knowledge Base Management
  • Document Management (co-edition, versionning...)
  • Time Management
I've tested and really loved www.bitrix24.com but the fact is that it's  not include an offline mode so our employees cannot access their task queue when internet access is out of hand.

Can someone propose me a platform that matchs these requirements??


Regards.

I have an Adobe Livecycle generated form, the form is hosted on an intranet, and it collects few pieces of information from users, I'm trying to add a "save as" button onto the form so that users can save, print, email the form along with the data entered, so I added a "save as" button with the relative javascript line (app.execMenuItem("SaveAs"), but when I preview it I get an error;
Save a Blank Copy of this Form, Data typed into this form will not be saved.

What's the work around and what do you recommend.

Thx

I'm having an issue caused by my external data columns in a SharePoint library when I try to upload a document.

Scenario -
My SharePoint library has several SharePoint fields as well as two external data field (Employee ID, Employee Name). These fields look into my HRIS SQL Server for information about our employees (name and ID). The field work properly.

If I begin to upload a file into this library AND I want to use one of the external data columns to lookup an ID or Name (this process works fine). However, when I select SAVE, I receive a SharePoint error:

Something went wrong - The file xxxx.pdf has been modified by i:0#.w|domain\user on 04 Mar 2016 13:21:45 -0500

I believe this is happening because the file seems to upload in the background while I am completing this process and then I am changing the properties when I click Save.

How can I complete this process without getting the above error?

I have a need to aggregate forms from InfoPath - that are stored on SharePoint and open up into a browser form, and standard documents (scans, word docs, excel files, etc.) into a single document library for presentation to a group of people.  

Simple scenario:
1. One form details an employee's profile (salary, title, etc.) - these are available only via SharePoint.
2. Another form - for different distribution - both online in SharePoint library and by email via InfoPath - details employee's network rights and privileges - updated throughout their employee tenure.
3. Scanned documents such as W2, Change of Address Forms, other official company and government forms, and possibly Word documents - all individual to an employee are attached to SharePoint document library by employee using a look-up of employee from item 1 above.
4. Finance and HR would like to see a complete set of the documents above in a single library grouped by employee.

Notes:
1. It is perfectly okay if these documents and forms initially reside in their own libraries.
2. I would like to do this with as little custom code as possible.

Thank you.

(Company A) = Internal
(Company B) = External Contractors
(Folder 1) = only internal users **External user cannot see this folder**
(Folder 2) = internal and external user
(Folder 3) = External users can only move documents in to this folder, internal users can move documents out and in.  
(Folder 4) = Archive **External user cannot see this folder**

My goal is to set up Dropbox as a kind of DMZ. I want to have internal users (Company A) be able drop documents into a (Folder 1) that only (company A) users have access to. While documents are in (folder 1) (Company A) internal users may manipulate the documents. When documents are ready (no longer manipulated) (Company A) moves documents to a second folder that (Company A) has access to BUT NOW (Company B) External users have access to that folder as well. (Company B) external users now manipulates documents in (Folder 2).  When (Company B) external users are done manipulating documents (Company B) external users move documents into (Folder 3) NOTE: At this point External users (Company B) can see documents in (folder 3) but they no longer have access to them there job is done. (Company A) internal users review documents and when satisfied that all manipulation is complete move documents to (Folder 4)
