How do you create a custom BDC data field that allows for multiple selected values?

  
I need help creating a custom data field using the BDC column as a base.  We need to allow for multiple selected values instead of just a single one.  I can't find anything on the net which shows how to do this.

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?

InfoPath / ActiveX error when using person selector field in Word template off SharePoint document l

  
I have created an out-of-the-box document library on a SharePoint 2010 site.  I left Microsoft Word Document selected as the Document Template.  I then added a person or group column and a multiple lines of text column to the document library. I then went into Library Settings --> Advanced Settings and clicked on Edit Template, opening the template in Word.  I created my template and added the two new columns to the document.  I did this using the Quick Parts --> Document Property --> [column name] feature under the Insert tab in Word.  I then saved the template back to SharePoint. Upon opening the template or creating a new document from the template, I get the following dialog box: --------------------------- Microsoft Office InfoPath --------------------------- One or more ActiveX controls could not be displayed because either: 1) Your current security settings prohibit running ActiveX controls on this page, or 2) You have blocked a publisher of one of the controls. As a result, the page might not display correctly. --------------------------- OK   --------------------------- I've searched around (I believe fairly extensively) and have not run into anyone else with the same issue.  Some have mentioned a similar error when creating a custom document information panel in InfoPath, and suggested lowered ActiveX security setti

Programmatically creating a Person or Group type field Textbox (similar to 'Assigned To' field in Ta

  

In our ASP.NET application created with SharePoint object model, we have a user interface with a Contact Person TextBox, we want this TextBox to be similar to the “Assigned To” filed in out-of-the-box Task List where you can search for a particular site user by typing in his/her name. How can we achieve this functionality programmatically?

Thanks in advance………


"Person or Group" Field Default Value

  

 

I have a "Person or Group" column being used to indicate an Assigned To value for our application. I would like the value of that column to default to the current user's name - in other words, the person submitting the new list item will be the assignee by default (and has the option to change it).

 

I tried doing this through SharePoint Designer by placing [Me] in some value attributes, but it's not working.

 

Is there some way to accomplish this?

 

Thanks,

Create View in an External List that Gets a Field from Another External Content Type via Foreign Key

  

I currently have two tables in a SQL Server 2k8 database: Locations and Customers

The fields in the Locations table are:

  • LocationName
  • StreetAddress
  • City
  • State
  • ZIP
  • CusotmerID (foreign key joined to Customers table)

The fields in the Customers table are:

  • ID (primary key)
  • CustomerName
  • CurrentBalance

Through SharePoint Designer, I have both tables set up as External Content Types of the same names as the tables and have created External Lists for each External Content Type. All CRUD operations are working perfectly. I added the proper Assocaiation and I've set CustomerName to be the Title of the Customers External Content Type. I can currently use a picker for CustomerID in the Locations List and CustomerName is displayed properly. Also, the default DispForm also correctly displays the CustomerName for any single Location record.

However, I would like to modify the default ReadList so the foreign key (CustomerID) will show the Title field of Customers (CustomerName). However, I am running into trouble finding out how to do this.

Any help with this issue would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks!

Updating Person/Group Field when Current User Clicks Button

  

Hi all,

Im trying to either add the current user to a multi person/group field or remove them if they are already in the field when they click a button. My code works to decide which button to render on the page - it will show "Add" if the current user is not in the multi person/group field (titled Members) or it will display "Remove" if the current user already exists in the multi person/group field.

My problem is that when the user clicks the button, i want to take the value in the multi person/group field and use XSL string functions to either add/remove the current user to/from the string and push the updated string back into the multi person/group field - This is not working for me. I can reference the correct column with javascript, but it seems the value i get from the person/group column is not just a simple string, its got all sorts of HTML in there. I was hoping just to get a string like, "member1;member2;...). Ive tried changing the field to just display the account (rather than the name with presence), but it still pulls back a huge chunk of code that i cant work with.

Below is my code so far, just to give you an idea - anyone know what im doing wrong?

How to assign values to workflow task person or group custom field?

  
Using visual studio 2008, in createTask_MethodInvoking, I have the following code. RequestFields has the values from the InfoPath form. ApprovingPersons is a person or group field, added to the task list by my custom task content type. I checked the task list associated with the workflow and I see the custom field.

SPUser user;
SPFieldUserValueCollection fuvc = new SPFieldUserValueCollection();
foreach (Contact person in RequestFields.Persons)
{
      user = workflowProperties.Web.EnsureUser(person.LoginName);
      fuvc.Add(new SPFieldUserValue(workflowProperties.Web, user.ID, user.Name));
}

// this is the line causing problem, I believe
PreApprovalTask_TaskProperties.ExtendedProperties["ApprovingPersons"] = fuvc;

I got the following error message:

at System.RuntimeMethodHandle._InvokeMethodFast(Object target, Object[] arguments, SignatureStruct& sig, MethodAttributes methodAttributes, RuntimeTypeHandle typeOwner)
   at System.RuntimeMethodHandle.InvokeMethodFast(Object target, Object[] argument

Infopath Question: XPath code to remove domain name from AccountID field in Person/Group Picker

  

I have an infopath email based submission form where I am using the Person/Group picker as a way for people to find people in the active directory to CC the form to. I was using the field "DisplayName" in the control and discovered that when you try to CC several employees, that it would disrupt the rules and you can't send the form.

I want to use the field "AccountID" but it includes the domain before the email alias (for ex. REDMOND\johndoe). Is there a formula code I could use to remove the domain from every email alias. Right now my CC formula is concat(SubmitterAlias, "; ", DisplayName)


Workflow - Create New List Item with lookup field

  

I have an 'Item list' that has 'ItemName' as a string. The Workflow creates a new 'Task' when a new Item is created. The 'Task' has 'Item Name' as a lookup to that 'Item list'.

I want the Workflow to "Create New List Item" and fill in the 'ItemName' lookup (in Task) with the 'ItemName' string (in Item).

The workflow won't do it because they are different 'types'. Is there a way around this?   


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.

Person/Group field is taken as an integer field in SharePoint form library when a form is submitted. I need to retain it as Person/Group column in the SharePoint form library too. Please help on the same. Thanks.

SharePoint Problem with Base Field Control Multilookup and Person and Group

  

Hi,

I am creating a custom field type. Inside this field type I need to create controls for various SharePoint field types like Number, Single line of text, lookup, multilookup, Preson and Group etc.So I am using SharePoint BaseFieldControl class to generate these controls. It works fine for all field type except for "Multi lookup" and "Person and Group" columns. Normally these controls are working fine but after a post back all the values gets removed and empty controls are shown. Is there any property exists which i need to set to retain values in between post backs??
