When clicking on the Open this Task button and trying to approve/Reject a approval Task in Microsoft Word , we are getting an error : A button in the form template is missing an xd:CtrlId attribute .

This error is similar to  the issue mentioned when clicking from a Outlook Task button but the difference being we are clicking from a Word Document instead from Outlook.There is a solution given for outlook in the below link .

is there a similar solution to the Microsoft Word issue ?

The task form of the approval workflow is an InfoPath form. We can click Open this Task from a SharePoint workflow on the Outlook ribbon to open it.

How did you open the task form in Word?

Could you please provide some details about that?
