Hi,

I can't find the tap of "upload multiple files". Could anyone tell me what is happening

I have created a document library. In the "Upload" menu, there is only one choice - "Upload Document". After clicking on that, there is still nothing related to "multiple files".

I understand that I could use the explorer view to upload, but I just wonder if there is any other method which can handle this.

Thank you very much.

Jensan

Upload multiple files is only available if you have at least Office 2003 installed on your client.

I have already installed Office Small Business 2003.

Should I re-install it Or just do some configurations

I have Office 2003 Pro SP2 and still no Upload Multiple files...

A mention of repair has been made. Is that a repair on the sharepoint install or the Office 2003

Thanks in advance.

This would be the client application.

Repair Office 2003 instead of Sharepoint.

You may need the CD to do this.

I have a client that has stated that they have MS Office 2000 installed and while using the same browser (IE 6), one of them does not have the "Upload Multiple Files" option while the other does. Does any one know of any possible reasons why this could be that I can investigate with them

Most likely the have some other product (such as FrontPage 2003, SharePoint Designer 2007, or Outlook 2003 / 2007). There are a few applications in the 2003 / 2007 environment that will install the related COM DLLs for Multiple File Upload.

You are correct in your assessment that different versions of Office on the same machine "breaks" many things in SharePoint 3 or MOSS 2007.

I just distributed Outlook 2007 to my 150 users and kept them using Office 2003 Professional. This has caused many issues in my company and confused many of our employees. MOSS 2007 has allowed my company to streamline many of our processes. The decision to upgrade one application in Office has caused many of our users to stop using Sharepoint.

Problem 1

IE 7 crashed whenever a user tried to open a document. Microsoft then explains a hotfix needs to be installed.

Problem 2

Some machines, but not all still had the problem. I found some work arounds on the net that the owssupp.dll file would need to be renamed in the older Office directory. So because all my clients have Office 2003 and Outlook 2007, only one of the two .dll's can be registered at one time. When I register the 2003 version, 2007 features break, and visa-versa. Irritating...

Even still, IE6 or 7 would still crash. I was finally able to repair Outlook 2007 which stopped crashing issues.

Problem 3

In any Document library, the Upload Multiple Files option is no longer avaliable.

Problem 4

When I try to edit a document in a document library using the "Edit with Microsoft <app>". I get the error, "Requires a Windows SharePoint Services-compatible application and Microsoft.. just as amyamy had.

Here is the deal... MICROSOFT IS FORCING US TO USE ONE OFFICE INSTALLATION OR THE OTHER. NOW I'M EXPLAINING TO MANAGEMENT THAT WE NEED TO FORK UP ANOTHER $35,000 TO UPGRADE EVERYONE RIGHT AFTER WE JUST PAID $10,000 TO AQUIRE THE OUTLOOK 2007 UPGRADE...

This problem has been resolved in my orgasnisation. It came down to having two different versions of Office. We upgraded everyone to Outlook 2007 and left the remaining applications at 2003. This caused way too many problems including the one mentioned in this thread.

Also OWSSUPP.dll caused many more problems with compatibility because of 2003 and 2007 coexisting on the same machine.

Thanks everyone for participating!

Hi,

I have exactly the same issue with my server (2003) at school. Following a reinstall of wss 3.0 I have lost many of the functions such as multiple uploads, connect to outlook, export to excel etc. I've tried registering the dll's (http://technet2.microsoft.com/Office/en-us/library/4fba0222-8b7a-4ae1-af64-e8050263784e1033.mspx mfr=true) but no luck as well as repair install of wss, office 2007 sharepoint components, the lot.

I installed wss 3.0 on a server at home and I can use all these features. When I log into school on the same pc I don't have them so I am not convinved its a client issue.

Any advice would be appreciated as its getting frustrating!

Sam

Now that you are calmer, Ketel One Scott, could you remove the piece at the end of your previous message in bold, and Caps. (or at least just get rid of the boldness and the caps)

It doesn't seem to serve any useful purpose except to detract from an otherwise very good, detailed, technical post.

(I could do it myself but that would be censorship !)

Mike Walsh

P.S. Actually I'd be interested how you resolved the problem. With the mix of Office 2007 and Office 2003 apps causing (known) problems, did you solve it by going back to Outlook 2003 (i.e. to all 2003 level apps) or by upgrading all your other Office apps to 2007 (which your bold, caps text rightly said is costly)
