I have a Form library with a form template.
The templat has a field "Office name" which should not be a fixed list of values, but a dynamical list, feeded from a different type of form. I'm a novice with InfoPath - Sharepoint and I want to find out, how can I can give users a possibility to create
and maintain a list of offices and also have this list as a selection list inside main library form - ALL inside one library, if possible.
I assumed that if I publish main form (Itinerary) as a library template form and lookup form (OfficeInfo) as a SiteContent, I should be able somehow to connect to siteContent column and it's information. But I cannot see how - Site Content Gallery is not
appering as a Connection item.
Can I use SiteConenct for this purpose or there are other ways to create end-user lookup lists?
I make a new content type, based of event.
If I add the (existing) site columns, Active, Aliases, Article Date, Byline (and some others?), these columns cannot be deleted afterwards!
is there a workaround ?
P.S. After testing, this also happens in 2007.
I have a list with a calculated column whose return type is Yes/No. If I try to browse to the list or a list item using REST via ListData.svc, I get the error "An error occurred while processing this request". Can't seem to find anything in 14\LOGS
or the System or Application event logs. I've tried multiple calculation formulas such as:
Both display "Yes" when viewing through the SharePoint UI and are sortable and filterable. If I change the calculated column return type to anything else (single line of text, currency, date/time, etc.) and update the formula as necessary, ListData.svc
displays the list item XML as expected. If I replace the calculated column with a regular column whose type is Yes/No, ListData.svc displays the list item XML as expected.
Is this a known bug? Is there a workaround (other than manually casting to bool in my code)?
I am trying to create some content types, but this also happens when creating new columns in a list.
Ok, here is my setup (which is the most basic way to replicate the issue):
List 1: Department List
Columns: Department Name (Single Line of Text)
List 2: Document Owners
Columns: Document Owner (single line of text), Department (Choice or Lookup from Department List), Email (single line of text), Lookup Field (Calculated).
Content Type: Quality Document
Columns: File Name, Title, Document Owners (Lookup from Document Owners List), Email (pulled in with Document Owner), Then i want to also pull in Department from the Document Owners list.
That is where my problem is. When i select the Document Owners List as the list to get the information from, there isn't the option under "Add a column to show each of these additional fields" to pull in the Department column. This
occurs if i use a Choice in the Document Owners list, or if i do a lookup from the Department List.
My preferred method of implementing this system would be to have a multi-value lookup field in the Department List for Document Owners so that the Owners are attached to the Department, and if the owners change for the department they also change for the
document that is for said department. But, i run into the same issue that i c
I've created the column 'MyDescription' with type 'Multiline Enchanced Text' in my custom content type derived from 'Page'. But later I understood that 'Publishing HTML' is better for me. I've removed the 'MyDescription' column and recreated 'MyDescription'
with type 'Publishing HTML'.
Page layout for my custom content type uses this code to display field
<PublishingWebControls:RichHtmlField FieldName="MyDescription" runat="server"/>
But page falls without any error information. I've deleted and recreated page: it fell always.
When I created column 'MyDescription1' with 'Publishing HTML' type in my custom content type and changed code to this
<PublishingWebControls:RichHtmlField Delete Description Column from Content Type Hello, I'm using SharePoint 2010 Server. I created a custom content type named Publication. After configuring several columns for this content type, I accidentally added a column named Description, found under the Document and Record Management Columns.
I do not want this column to be in this content type and cannot find a way to remove it from the Publication content type. There is no delete button and my searches on the Internet been in vain. I don't want to delete the Description column from SharePoint.
I simply want to delete the column from the content type Publication. How can I do this?
Problem: When I create a new page layout in SPD2010
based on a custom content type a MultiLine Site column is displayed as:
The user is, of course, not able to add Richt text to it!
Question: I need it to be a RichtTex
I have a problem assinging External column value to ListItem object with client object model-based application I'm developing. To be precise, I am able to retrieve data related to external content type by reading external list created from this content type
but I don't know how to properly use it to assign value to this field. By doing some research on my own I concluded that BDC ID column from external list is the way to go since it uniquely defines selected row from external list but that doesn't
tell me much since I don't know what to do with it. Currently I ended up with partial solution - to assign plain string value of picker column but that makes this value visible only in "View Properties" option on Sharepoint and not in "Edit Properties"
which pritty much makes sence since it isn't properly related to rest of the data in specific row. Does someone have a better solution for this?
Scenario: If you create a table with a column of type nvarchar, populate it with some content and try to modify it using the WebMatrix editor, from nvarchar to ntext, it does not display any error message or warning that this is not possible. It silently saves and reverts the change, back to nvarchar. Wasted some hours on this issue as I thought my column was ntext, but in fact was still nvarchar.
Expected behavior: It should change to ntext, or if SQL CE doesn't support that, it should notify the user that no change was applied.

We're currently encoutering an issue on our production servers with Office 2007 documents. In essence, the Content Type for all docx, xslx, and pptx documents cannot be changed away from the site default on all newly created sites.
I've even done some step by step debugging on an SPItem insert and I can set the content type to a custom type, but it reverts back to the site's default Content Type on Update(). Other file types - .doc, .xls, .tif, .txt, and .jpg - have all been tested,
and all work as expected (the Content Type changes correctly).
Thanks in advance!
We are running WSS 3.0 SP2 on server 2003. Recently, we lost the "Titles" for all content types for documents. Our system Content Type for Document is set up to require this field to be completed on all documents that is uploaded. Our system
would automatically enter in by default the name of the document in the "Title" field it no longer does this for the user. The user must now enter in manually the "Title". How do I get it to enter in the "Title" using the document file name automatically?
Below is the way the setting page for Site Content Type: Document looks like. (I tried to recreate it since I could place a screen shot in the box)
Site Content Type Information
Descriptiong: Create a new document.
Group: Document Content Types
Name, Description, and group
