GetUserProfileByName RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have InfoPathform 2010 and working of SharePoint 2007.

    I have followed the rule step by step as described by Itay Shakury on http://blogs.microsoft.co.il/blogs/itaysk/archive/2007/04/05/InfoPath-_2D00_-Get-the-current-user-without-writing-code.aspx?CommentPosted=true#commentmessage

    I can create Date Connection fine but the problem is when I click on "Preview". The error I am getting is:

    ” Some external data was not retrieved. The form will load without the requested data.”

    When I click on Show Details button, I get the following message:

    “The SOAP response indicates that an error occurred on the server:

    Server was unable to process request. ---> Access Denied: To create a user profile, you must be an administrator, or create your own profile and have personal features rights.”.

    Am I doing something wrong? I am working on client side and I do not have access to the SharePoint server to make any changes to it.


    Thank You

  • It's telling you that you don't have a profile in the profile database.  This is a problem you need to discuss directly with the SharePoint Administrator who runs this farm.
