MOSS 2007: list column that lookup to multiple documents stored in doc library

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 03, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Hi All, I'm trying to understand how to customise MOSS to achieve the following: I need to lookup from a list to multiple documents stored in a documetn library. Example: - List item 1 --------> Lookup to Doc 2                   --------> Lookup to Doc 5 - List item 2 --------> Lookup to Doc 3                   --------> Lookup to Doc 5                   --------> Lookup to Doc 8 - List item 3 --------> Lookup to Doc 1 How can I achieve this? is it possible that in the lookup I have a "search" option? Thanks all Vit

Assigning Custom Permission Role to a List Column in MOSS 2007

I have created three custom roles: Role1, Role2, Role3.  I have a user list with permissions column.  This permissions column has three choices in a dropdown list.  I want to associate each value in the dropdown list to a custom role (Role1 or Role2 or Role3).  This way, when I create a new user, I would just have to pick a value in the permissions column.  Oh Yes, I am using MOSS 2007.

MOSS 2007 This list or library contains a large number of items.


I have a library showing "This list or library contains a large number of items.".

The library contains only 1300 items.


1. Would the performance, e.g., upload files/change item properties, be affected?

2. Any way I can better organize the items?

3. I kown we can create folders in a library, how can I create subfolder? Or subfolder refers to Content Type?

4. Would create content type improves performance?


Many thanks.

Unable to open pdf from document library MOSS 2007


When I click on a pdf document uploaded in a document library it comes up with a blank page. 

I guess it's trying to open pdf on the browser. I turned off "Display PDF in browser " option in Adobe Preferences, but it doesn't help, same issue.

I tried other browsers too, it's the same issue.

I am able to open all other pdf files local to my machine fine.

Issue With MOSS 2007 Picture library



We have a MOSS 2007 publishing portal. We are currently facing issues with Picture library created with default picture library template.Whenever we have tried to upload an image to the picture library I am getting "acess denied" error message, though I have full permission to the site level as well as to the library level.I have seen the pictures are getting uploaded and in "checked out" state.It does not show the "edit properties" page on upload and does not even allow the owner of the image to edit the properties, gives the same access denied error message.

I have also tried to check in the image files through the "management and content structure", but the images are not getting checked in. Please let me know the root cause of this and how we can resolve this.





Exporting MOSS 2007 List to Excel 2007

When doing the export, the columns "Item Type" and "Path" are automatically displayed in the sheet.  Is there anyway to suppress these fields from exporting automatically?  I'm sure this has already been asked before, but I couldn't find anything after much searching (perhaps I'm using the wrong keywords).  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Custom Site Column in MOSS 2007

Hello, We have a request to add List in a List, for example, one of the column in the list should contain a table...so, created a custom column "Column with HTML Table" from the list of publishing fields...but, somehow, I dont seem to find that site column any more... That column type is "Publishing HTML", and it allows to define HTML table. I am unable to add a screenshot here...so, any clues? Also, can we copy the custom site column as a template and move it to another Site Collection? Regards, Kishore.  Kishore

Custom List Row association to multiple documents - Design choices?

I want to associate custom list entries to muliple documents. Thinking about options.   1 row will have many docs, but one doc will only have one row. Possible? Trying to keep it simple with minimal development. I was thinking I could have a unique column or the id column in the list act like a key (somehow).. and  add a required column to the document list requiring it to tie back to the list entry.  Then a view could drive listing all the docs for a particular row from a link in the list built in a custom dataview. All the docs could be in the same library. Is the the best approach? Ideas/suggestions? Thanks.
