Workaround to using "Person or Group" field in a "Calculated" column formula?

  

Apparently, SharePoint does not allow you to insert a "Person or Group" column into a "Calculated" field's formula.

Is there a workaround to adding a "Person or Group" column into a "Calculated" field's formula?

-Maybe a way of coverting the data from the Person or Group column into a text field, and referencing that text field in the formula?

Microsoft mentions only Columns of the following data types can be referenced in a formula: single line of text, number, currency, date and time, choice, yes/no, and calculated.

Trying to set Calendar Time Interval Using Calculated Column, but getting Error

  

 

So i was trying to use a calculated column that added 7 days to the start date of a calendar item. The calculated column worked fine because i checked with several tests. Then i tried using the Column as the End Time in the Time Interval Setting in the Calendar View. This broke Sharepoint. Not the normal graceful error im using to seeing from Sharepoint but the Server Error Page when a dump happens in a ASP page. I havent enabled the full error page because i assume its not like i can fix it, i dont have the source code.

 

Does anyone else experience this? If so is it a known problem and being worked on?

 

Thanks!

Datasheet view lookup column issue

  

When a column that has a lookup is empty in datasheet view and I attempt to update a different column I get this message: the text entered for isn't an item from the list. select an item from the list, or enter text that matches one of the listed items.

I found this hotfix, but it did not apply.

Any ideas how to get this resolved?


Problem inserting into XML column

  
I have a C# application that inserts XML into Sql Server 2005.  When the message is more than 300 lines or so, it doesn't make it there.  The data shows in the application variables (stringWriter) but doesn't get inserted and that's confirmed looking in Profiler. The stored procedure is simply:          usp_WS_OrderEntry_InsertWSOrder @doc=@p1,@WSOrderId=@p2 output       INSERT INTO WS_OrderEntry_Order (OrderXML)       VALUES(@doc)  ..... C# .....             tableAdapter.usp_WS_OrderEntry_InsertWSOrder(stringWriter.ToString(), ref wsOrderId); .... In any cases, the variable "stringWriter" contains the data (as text). In profiler for a successfull call: declare @p1 xml set @p1=convert(xml,N'<OrderHeader><CustomerNumber>1234</CustomerNumber><Pr.....</PO></ShipToName> declare @p2 int set @p2=1077 exec dbo.usp_WS_OrderEntry_InsertWSOrder @doc=@p1,@WSOrderId=@p2 output select @p2 In unsuccessfull call: It shokes on the convert part and doesn't display any data (and doesn't insert as well).  I looked in LOGs, events and didn't find anything. Any help appreciated.  Thanks.

Sharepoint: In Calculated Column, Code with multiple "IF" condition does not work.

  
Implemantation:  Calculate expected resolve date exclude "Saturday" and "Sunday"  based on Priority and Severity.Columns are:1. Priority:2. Severity:3. Raised on: Date record createdCode: Below is the code which contains multiple "If" conditions. For quick undersatnding, i separated major If condition. Below code does not work and sharepoint gives me Sytax error message. =IF(OR(Priority="Critical",Severity="Critical"),IF(TEXT(WEEKDAY([Raised on]+1),"dddd")="Saturday",[Raised on]+3,[Raised on]+1),     IF(OR(Priority="HIGH",Severity="HIGH"), IF(TEXT(WEEKDAY([Raised on]+1),"dddd")="Saturday",[Raised on]+4, IF(TEXT(WEEKDAY([Raised on]+2),"dddd")="Saturday",[Raised on]+4,[Raised on]+2)) ,   IF(OR(Priority="MEDIUM",Severity="MEDIUM"), IF(TEXT(WEEKDAY([Raised on]+1),"dddd")="Saturday",[Raised on]+5, IF(TEXT(WEEKDAY([Raised on]+2),"dddd")="Saturday",[Raised on]+5, IF(TEXT(WEEKDAY([Raised on]+3),"dddd")="Saturday",[Raised on]+5,[Raised on]+3)) ) ,   IF(OR(Priority="LOW",Severity="LOW"), IF(TEXT(WEEKDAY([Raised on]+1),"dddd")="Saturday",[Raised on]+6, IF(TEXT(WEEKDAY([Raised on]+2),"dddd")="Saturday",[Raised on]+6, IF(TEXT

Use Sharepoint Calendar Start Time field in calculated column

  
I'm trying to limit the calendar view to current week using the Sharepoint defined field Start Time. However, when I display the serial number behind the Start Time it looks like it is actually giving me the serial number for the Created Date field. I believe it is because the appointment is reoccurring but I'm hoping there is a way around it. I created a new testdate field and manually entered the date and set those appointments as all day events however they are not reocurring appointments. The testdate returns the correct serial number however the start time returns an incorrect serial number. SerialNumber1=DATE(YEAR([Start Time]),MONTH([Start Time]),DAY([Start Time])) SerialNumber2=DATE(YEAR([testdate]),MONTH([testdate]),DAY([testdate])) Start Time  SerialNumber1 Testdate  SerialNumber2 8/31/2010 40420 8/31/2010 40421 8/31/2010* 40405    9/1/2010* 40405    9/2/2010* 40405    9/7/2010 40427 9/7/2010 40428 9/13/2010* 40405    9/14/2010 40434 9/14/2010 40435 9/14/2010* 40405    9/15/2010* 40405    *These are reoccurring appointments scheduled as all day events. The others were entered as one time appointments scheduled as all day events.

wpf charting column series data binding problem

  
I'm trying to build a chart using the columnSeries from the wpf toolkit and I appear to be having trouble with the data binding. Here is the xaml: <Grid>    <chartingToolkit:ColumnSeries Height="18" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="188,169,0,0" Name="columnSeries1" VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="18" IndependentValueBinding="{Binding Path=Date}" DependentValueBinding="{Binding Path=Value}" /></Grid> In the code behind, I'm calling a stored procedure and putting the result in a datatable like this: string connString = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["string"].ConnectionString;            using (SqlConnection cn = new SqlConnection(connString))            {                DataTable dt = new DataTable("T1");                cn.Open();                SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("T1_sp", cn);                cmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;                  SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter(cmd);                da.Fill(dt);                columnSeries1.ItemsSource = dt.DefaultView;                cn.Close();            } No error is being generated but I'm not getting a column chart either. If I take the same command and put it into a datagrid, it works fine. What do I need to do to get this into my column chart? If it helps,

SharePoint 2007 to Access 2007 - Issues grouping by "Person or Group" field type/column

  
We are on SharePoint 2007 and using Access 2007.  The SharePoint list contains a column called Assigned Person, column type: Person or Group, single selection, displaying only the name 1) When we Open with Access and Export a copy of the data, then create a report from that table, we do not have the option to group on Assigned Person.  2) When we Open with Access and Link to data on the SharePoint site, then create a report from that list, when we group by Assigned Person... The same person has 2 groups - there are is no other grouping or sorts on the list, and i can't locate a correlation to another field to show why they would have to collections for the same person The Person or Group column sorts "from smallest to largest" as though it is a number field. The list is a task/activity tracking system we created custom for our needs.  We want to pull a weekly report, grouped by Assigned Person, but cannot get access to work.  We do not want to resort to anything more complex, as it takes a much longer process to have reports pulled by Chrystal or one of those types of applications.  And we cannot change out the field for something like a Choice column as the list already has a very large amount of content.  Can anyone assist? Is there a setting hiding somewhere that is causing the problem?

Fill person/group column with workflow

  
Hi all, I would like to retrieve the 'Department' value of the creator of a list-item. Therefore I created a column named 'Department' of type person/group, show field 'department' From a worflow created with SharePoint Designer, when a item is added to the list, I fill the column 'Department' with the field 'created by'. The result is that the column 'Department' nicely displays the Department of the creator of the added item. When I do the same for a library, the column Department don't get filled, and the workflow keeps the state 'Started'. Any idea what I'm doing wrong? Kind regards. #Update When I add a new document te the library, the column 'Department' stay's empty and the workflow keeps the status 'Starting' But when I save a new document, open it again, edit it and save it again, the column 'Department' shows the department of the creator !!
