cannot edit documents in newly created libraries

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 02, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I've been struggling with this for about a month now, so it's really makin' me crazy at this point! Here's what seems to be happening: My document libraries that were in in place pre-grade are fine, but in all the new document libraries that have been created post-2010 upgrade, the only way anyone can edit these documents is to go in thru Explorer view.. My Library settings are set to 'open in client application' since we're only using Foundation, but I have tried 'open in browser' with no luck. Edit document & Check out are both disabled on the ribbon. I've tried different permission levels - system account, document owner, you name it. I'm hoping someone here might have a fresh idea or two. Thanks in advance! T

Uploading documents directly to record center libraries in MOSS


Hello all,

We have several pdf documents that are records and we want to maintain them in record center. These documents were not part of any collaboration sites. They are all in a shared folder. So there is no audit history and version history for these documents which is typical of any collaboration area documents.

The question I have is, will there be any disadvantages of directly uploading the document to record center library instead of setting up routing rules and submitting the document using OfficialFile.asmx.

I have noticed that when we submit a document using Send To, Record Center's default router renames the file and makes it a unique file name by appending _uniqueId. In my case, all the files are uniquely named and I am not worried about file name clashes.

Is it advisable to directly upload the documents to record cente

Cannot change themes of newly created sites "Access denied"

When creating a new site i cannot change the default theme (grayed out) and a message appears something like "access denied". What's wrong? The first 6 sites where created succesfully and have a modified (OOB) site theme applied, all sites I create from now on cannot have the default theme modified. I checked any check-out settings but couldnt find anything obvious. What's wrong? I didn't use any custom code or such, just clicked around like an Admin does ;)  I thought about some check-in/out issue, but couldnt see anything.

Unable to export/copy documents out of SharePoint 2007 libraries

Hi, A client had an issue a few months ago where their MOSS 2007 home site collection had to be restored after a major crash, it now works but they have loads of issues with the restored site(no need to go into) now I am trying to migrate the Data (files and folders only, no security or metadata) to a SharePoint 2010 installation, the problem is that I am unable to get any of the files out of SharePoint. I decided against an upgrade or any form of site migration as I might only be taking the problems with me. i am just trying to copy the files using the "Library - Actions - Open with Windows Explorer". The Explorer view window opens but if i select a file and move it into a folder on the server nothing happens, If I select a folder with files and folders in it then only the root folder is copied over but it is empty.  i don't want to repair any of the issues with the old site as it's only wasting time, can anybody think of a way to get all of the data out of Sharepoint 2007, without taking any of the lists or libraries or any other Sharepoint settings. I only need to keep the folder structure and files within them as i don't need any metadata and am recreating the security again seperately on the new SharePoint setup. Anybody have any ideas or know of free/trial products that i

Edit CSS path on file that is dynamically created by ASP.NET

Hi,I'm not very familiar with .NET so bear with me. The website is question is built in ASP.NET and is using Themes.The external CSS link is outputted on the .master page dynamically by ASP.NET (so I've been told), apparently it generates this code from any CSS file located in /App_Themes/The problem is I need the link to the CSS to begin with a "/" so it points to the root directory.Currently the syntax is: <link href="App_Themes/file/file.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" />And I need it to be <link href="/App_Themes/file/file.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" />Is there anyway I can achieve this?Much thanks,Nick

Using a List View web part to display documents from multiple document libraries from different site

Hi there, I am trying to have one web part display documents (or list items) from different document libraries (or different lists) from different site collections. I have achieved this under a single site collection using Data View Web Part (using SPD). I have also achieved displaying a single document library (or a list) from a different site collection by using List View Web Part. but I am not sure how to get my head around displaying documents or list items from different document libraries or lists across site collections. I have thought of using SPSiteDataQuery or ListViewByQuery, but they all seem to focus one site collection at a time. If any of you have done this before, please share your best practice on this one with me. Much appreciated. Clark

Sharepoint 2010, Constant prompt for credentials to edit office documents in a fqdn setup


Is there a solution to resolve the constant "Prompts" For user id's and passwords when a person tries to open/launch/edit office documents from sharepoint 2010.

My setup: sharepoint fqdn in the domain sp.domainname.local, The sharepoint server is a member of this internal domain. In dns I have local zone of sp.domainname.com with a cname that points to the internal sharepoint server. There is no issue in users accessing the server both internal and external, The issue arises when Office documents are launched from SP2010.

In central admin I have configured the alternate access mappings to be http://sp

I have also tried putting the fqdn dns name of the sharepoint server in IE8 trusted zone but
no luck, I still get credential prompts.

I think the issue might be that Office does not see that the files are coming from the fqdn of sp.domainname.com so hence the prompts.

Trying to fix this as right now its a total pita. I found some previous posts on this issue with SP2007 but found nothing that really addresses this in SP2010.

Thanks Paul

How to enable Word 2010 to save to one of the document libraries on a newly installed Sharepoint Ser



I have a newly installed Sharepoint Server 2010 (say, http://spserver/) somewhere on our LAN on Windows Server 2008 R2. And I am working with Word 2010 on my Windows 7 machine. I have created a Document library somewhere in a subsite of the Sharepoint server (say, http://spserver/subsite/doclibrary)

Now, working with Word 2010 I want to simply save the document that I'm working into that document library Doclibrary. I go to Word 2010 backstage... and can't find anything there.

1) Save As? It only shows my file system...

2) Save & Send? I see there Save to Sharepoint. But Browse for Location button gives me nothing. If I press Save As here, I just get my file system again.

What should I configure on Sharepoint server or in my machine, so that I can save to my doclibrary with as few clicks as possible, just like I always did with my local file system.

Best way to insert newly-created UserId into a second table also



I have set up the ASP.NET Membership system using MS SQL. I have also created a new table (Table2) in which the user can store additional information. The UserId column is present in both tables (Table2's UserId column is the foreign key to the UserId column in aspnet_Membership). When a new user creates their account, what is the best way to also automatically insert that user's unique UserId into a new Table2 record at the same time (obviously in the column UserId)?

Below is my attempt to do this. Not sure this is right, but I used the oncreateduser property of CreateUserWizard and called the method below -- not sure if it would work (but regardless, I'm getting the error message at bottom of this post). Please help.

Thank you.

How to Configure search for meta-data based retrieval of documents into Document Libraries?


I need to crawl update of newly created/updated documents within document libraries. My understanding says i need to create the new content source and associate the crawls.. and newly created and updated documents would be crawled in the next sceduled incremental crawl. But my question is how i can create the dadicated content source for document libraries as the content as there is no such content source type.

Any suggestion or workaround would be greatly appreciated.



How to place security on a document library such that users only see documents they created?


When using lists, it is easy to specify that users can only see lists that they created (through Advanced Settings)... Is there a similar way to do this with document libraries? Rather than doing item level security... Thanks.

Moving Documents between Libraries with Version History Completely Intact




Trying to verify that I've found a what I believe is fairly large weakness in the SP API: moving documents while keeping their version history completely intact as they are.


API deals with this in very incomplete way:

- SPFile.Move() does send the versions with document, but wipes out all version's comments and sets their Modified to date of operation and ModifiedBy to user context running code.

-SPCopy has no movement of versions available


Some posts/articles in the community on this.  Solution given is to interate over the source file's versions and run SPFileCollection.Add() of the target folder for each version.  That method has 13 overloads, but none allow you to preserve all aspects of the version - very aggravating:

- One overload allows setting of Modified and ModifiedBy - but not Version comments

- One overload allows setting version comment but not Modified/ModifiedBy.

- One allows sending the version's property bag over, but this seems to have no effect on version comments or Modified/ModifedBy on the destination file.


If anyone in possession of an approach I do not see here wo
