Alert based on date

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 02, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I have a list of SSL certificates and their expiration dates.  I created a column that calculates the date 45 days before the expiration and then a view that only shows those items where the (expiration - 45) > Today. I then set an alert for any changes to items in that view.  However, I don't get an alert for items that pop into the view...I guess because the item itself did not change.  Is there a way to send an alert based on date?  My SharePoint enviroment is locked down so I can't create custom workflows or connect via Designer.

SharePoint Portal Server 2003 - email alert based on due date


Hello All,

Hoping someone can help us here.

Note:Workflow/3rd party solutions not an option-

We would like to send an email alert when a list items due date is eqaul to "today".

We are trying to manage some certificates of compliance by flagging the "due date of the particular certificate (list item)" and sending an alert email when that occurs.

Is this feasible in any manner without workflow?

Is it possible to send an alert based on a calculated field when that calculated data changes? .

Any direction would be appreciated.

Thank you

Filtering/selecting rows based on date


I have a gridview, based on thsi datasource:


<asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSourceAllLoads" runat="server" 
        ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:tplatz_dk_dbConnectionString %>"               
        SelectCommand="SELECT DISTINCT DATEADD(day, 0, DATEDIFF(day, 0, tblDelivered.delivered_Date)) AS delivered_Date, tblDelivered.delivered_LoadNo, tblDelivered.delivered_TrailerNo, ISNULL(tblDeliveredInfo.deliveryInfo_FirmaNavn, N'?') AS Expr1 FROM tblDelivered FULL OUTER JOIN tblDeliveredInfo ON tblDelivered.delivered_LoadNo = tblDeliveredInfo.deliveryInfo_LoadNr ORDER BY delivered_Date DESC">

Using a dropdownlist, I can filter (by changing datasource) the results based on customer names in a dropdownlist. This datasource, working perfectly, looks like this:


<asp:SqlDataSource ID="sqldataSourceKundeLoads" runat="server" 
        ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:tplatz_dk_dbConnectionString %>" 
        SelectCommand="SELECT  DATEADD(day, 0, DATEDIFF(day, 0, tblDelivered.delivered_Date)) AS delivered_Date, tblDelivered.delivered_LoadNo, tblDelivered.delivered_TrailerNo, ISNULL(tblDeliveredInfo.deliveryInfo_FirmaNavn, N'?&#

Search based on creation date

Hello All, I would like to ask which managed property I should use for searching based on creation date. It seems I can't find a managed property to do this. I created my own managed property with the right crawled properties, which works. But I think this should be something out of the box.  Please help, thank you  Anna

Export Data to Excel Based on Date Range

I have data from multiple tables that I would like to display in a gridview via a stored procedure.  I need to select the data based on a date range and display it.  Once displayed I need to include a button that would allow the user to export the gridview data to an excel spreadsheet.  Does anyone have an out of the box solution or know of a tutorial I can use to accomplish this feat?  I am currently using 2.0 for this project. I am newish to .net. Thanks in advance. Here is my stored procedure that calls the data from multiple tables.USE [DATABASENAME] GO /****** Object: StoredProcedure [dbo].[GetUsersAll] Script Date: 09/03/2010 08:20:23 ******/ SET ANSI_NULLS ON GO SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER ON GO ALTER PROCEDURE [dbo].[GetUsersAll] AS SELECT aspnet_Users.UserName, aspnet_Membership.Email, Team.Name, MemberTeamRole.InsertDate, MemberTeamRole.ManagerApprovedDate, MemberTeamRole.RegistrarApprovedDate, MemberTeamRole.RoleName, MemberInfo.firstname, MemberInfo.lastname FROM aspnet_Membership INNER JOIN aspnet_Users ON aspnet_Membership.UserId = aspnet_Users.UserId INNER JOIN MemberInfo ON aspnet_Users.UserId = MemberInfo.memberid LEFT OUTER JOIN MemberTeamRole ON aspnet_Membership.UserId = MemberTeamRole

Dynamic list item title based on date created & regional settings?

I have a list of things that doesn't *need* a title.  However, because sharepoint uses Title for links, RSS etc  I tried generating a title in an event handler.   This would work great if I wasn't basing it on a date field: public override void ItemAdding(SPItemEventProperties properties) { DateTime dt = Convert.ToDateTime(properties.AfterProperties["TestDate"]); properties.AfterProperties["Title"] = dt.ToShortDateString(); base.ItemAdding(properties); } In testing, this sets the title to "8/9/2010" when I selected 8/10/2010 in the date picker.  I figure this is because of the regional settings of my test user.  I can probably correct the title value for 'test user' but that won't fix 'test user in mongolia' who would still see two different values. So What I would like is to have the Title always display the value MyDate in the uesr's locale.  So the field needs to be dynamic not only at edit/update time, but at display time. Does anybody know if this can be accomplished, and more specifically how?

How do you filter a list in a Meeting workspace based on the meeting date?

I have a customer who is using a meeting workspace, and has a list on said workspace (we'll call it "Meeting Instance List"). The workspace houses this list, and of course after each meeting, the workspace, in essence, resets itself in preparation for the next meeting - so it looks like it removes the items from the list, when in actuality, they are there, just on the previous meeting instances. Some of his stakeholders are finding this limiting because they perceive it as losing historical information (you know how some folks can be, if they don't see it, they think it's gone). His solution is to replace the non-series list, with a series list, and incorporate legacy records from another older list. Only problem is, now there's not a way to filter the series list so that it shows items from a parcticular meeting date. For instance - the [Today] variable will only return a current system date value. Surely there ought to be a similar variable that would all you to filter the list based on meeting date, right?

Running sum calculation based off date dimension?

I have a fairly simple calculated measure which does a running sum of a particular measure : --This does a running sum of the Net Measure up until the previous date (basically a "Starting Count" for a period. Sum(PeriodsToDate([Change Date].[Year - Month - Date].Levels(0), [Change Date].[Year - Month - Date].PrevMember), [Measures].[Net]) The problem is I have added a second hierarchy in the date dimension that includes quarter called [Year - Quarter - Month - Date]. Is there anyway around not having to create a seperate running sum calculated measure to use this new hierarchy? The PrevMember in the initial calculated measure works, although it reports the wrong number when used in conjunction with the Quarter hierarchy because it gets the PrevMember in the other hierarchy. What is the best practice for this situation?Craig

return records based on current date?


I tried finding a QA which already addressed this idea, but with no luck. Sorry if it's been addressed before.


I have a table where sales pricing is managed; it contains history of pricing where every price record has an 'effective date'. Currently when a user needs the 'active' price for a customer/item combination, the table is queried by the record that has the most recent 'EffectiveDate' before GETDATE(). Here is the def for table 'tim_PriceSheet'

ItemKey int, not null

EffectiveDate datetime, notnull

CurrID varchar(3)

ListPrice decimal (15,5)

The primary key is set on ItemKey, EffectiveDate

Sample Data:


ItemKey	EffectiveDate	    CurrID	ListPrice
45	2010-07-01 00:00:00.000	CAD	100.00000
45	2010-09-14 00:00:00.000	CAD	110.00000
45	2010-10-01 00:00:00.000	CAD	112.00000
63	2010-09-01 00:00:00.000	CAD	45.00000
63	2010-09-01 00:00:00.000	USD	45.00000
63	2010-09-18 00:00:00.000	CAD	40.00000
63	2010-10-01 00:00:00.000	USD	40.00000

Need help with filtering a list based on Date and Time




We are implementing a SharePoint list for our resources to provide information as to whether they will be in the office that day, working from home, etc..

Some service requests do not have end date, which means that they have service request all the time.

Not sure of the correct logic to return records based on date in my WHERE clause


I have a table that contains records with a start and end date.. within our application we have another table that contains a retention number.. its a number 1 thru 100 or -1 indicating retain forever.

Now i need to pull back all records that are in the table that have a deviceID = 231 and that have a startdate < the retention period.. So what i was expecting was records that have a startdate less than the retention time from todays date..

I have the following 2 queries that return the same results.. and not really sure which logic would be correct.. for this example, there are 15 records for that ID.. and 2 of which are older than 20days ago. So which logic should i use?

DECLARE @retention_time int
DECLARE @id bigint

SET @retention_time = '20'
SET @id = '231'

SELECT * FROM DeviceInfo WHERE Id = @id AND DATEDIFF(day, startDate,GETDATE()) > @retention_time
SELECT * FROM DeviceInfo WHERE Id = @id AND startDate < (GETDATE() - @retention_time)

Need to select records based on todays date


I need to select records in my database based on todays date. I have a date field that saves a future scheduled ship date for orders and need to use a select statement that would use todays date as a parameter. I am able to do this by manualy entering the date in the select statement but when I use todays date with inline code in the select statement it does not work. Please look at the code segment below:

Dim strTodaysDate As String
strTodaysDate = "'" + Date.Now.AddDays(9).ToString("MM/dd/yyyy") + "'"

<asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSource1" runat="server"
        ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:DAVINCIORDERTRACKINGConnectionString %>"
        SelectCommand="SELECT * FROM [OrderTracker] WHERE (CONVERT(char(10), ScheduledShipDate, 101) <> '<% =strTodaysDate %>')">


The segment above returns all records. And if I just enter the date manually in the select statement like below it returns the correct records:

<asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSource1" runat="server"
        ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:DAVINCIORDERTRACKINGConnectionString %>"

SQL Server throws exception converting today's date based on Arabic(Umm al Qura calendar) to Gregor



My application has support for Arabic and I'm relying on sql server to convert dates from Arabic calendar to Gregorian calendar and vice versa.

The Arabic calendar is based on the lunar sighting and there is a possible difference of 1-2 days.

The country in which my application is deployed uses the Umm Al Qura Arabic calendar(Saudi Arabia, Makkah) and according to it today is 30th of Rabi Al-Thani 1432 A.H. or simply 30/04/1432.

When the query is run to convert today's date (In Arabic) to today's Gregorian Date, SQl Server throws an exception (since SQL server uses the Kuwaiti algo for converting dates).

You can try it out using the following query:

Arabic to Gregorian throws an error (for today's date)

SELECT CONVERT(datetime, '30/04/1432 10:14:41:000AM', 131)

Gregorian to Arabic returns a tomorrow's date

SELECT Convert(nchar, GetDate(), 131)


Is there a work araound for it in SQL Server 2005 Compact Edition?


The .NET compact framework does not support the UmAlQuraCalendar class either,
