                                    SPFile file = oWeb.GetFile(url);
                                    byte[] fileBytes = item.File.OpenBinary();

                         /destination document library
                          SPList docLib = oWeb.Lists.TryGetList("TestDocLib");
                          SPListItemCollection listItemCollection = docLib.Items;
                          string folderName = "TestFolder";
                          //get absolute destination Url
                          string folderUrl = oWeb.Url + "/" + docLib.Title + "/" + folderName + "/" + fileName;

                foreach (SPListItem listItem in listItemCollection)
                    if (listItem["Name"] != null && listItem["Name"].ToString() == fileName)

                SPFile destFile = oWeb.Files.Add(folderUrl, fileBytes, true);

People picker fields promoted from Infopath to sharepoint list as text fields

When people picker fields are promoted from infopath to sharepoint list or form library, they are created in the sharepoint as "single text line" fields. In order to have them as people picker fields,  create new people picker fields in sharepoint form library and write an event receiver and in the item adding event assign the values from the single text line fields to the people picker fields.

SPFieldUserValueCollection usernameCol = new SPFieldUserValueCollection();
SPsite osite = new SPSite(http://sharepoint2010/testing);
SPWeb oWeb = osite.OpenWeb();
SPList oList = oWeb.Lists["TestList"];
SPListItemCollection oListItemCol = oList.Items;

foreach (SPListItem items in oListItemCol)

SPUser user = items["PeoplePickerfield"];

if (user != null)
new SPFieldUserValue(user.ParentWeb, user.ID, user.Name));

item["MultiplevalueallowedPeoplePickerField"] = usernameCol;

string documentLibraryName = "Test Reports";

string fileUrl = string.Format("{0}/{1}/{2}", oWeb.Url, documentLibraryName, fileName);

SPFile file = oWeb.GetFile(fileUrl);

string workfowStatus = "Approved";

//code when all the approvers approve delete this file and move it under folder called pdf
