Files in document libary not picking up the correct content types

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 06, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 
Hi, I have a document libary where I have 10 InfoPath content types attached. For eg: Type1, Type2 etc... Type10. In this doc lib, I have a folder for each cutomer, and inside each of those folders, I have a file of each Content type (".xml"). I am creating these Folders and files programatically. The problem is that, the files are not picking up its content types. Every file (.xml), when uploaded, its content type is "Document" which is the default content type. Earlier it used to pickup the correct content types. What could be wrong?

XsltListViewWebPart: Document Library with Content Types

  
Good Morning, I have a requirement to add a webpart from a parent site to a child site to display a document library list view web part. Site structure eg: /parent/DocumentCenter /parent/ChildSite I have followed the instructions below as per http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepoint2010customization/thread/05c2c386-b6f3-4a4b-9641-e46d5bb3d4c2; 1) Open the parent site in SPD 2010.  2) Select "Lists and Libraries" from the left navigation pane 3) Select a list 4) In the "Views" section on the right, either open an existing view (e.g. AllItems.aspx) or create a new view. 5) In SPD page editor, click on the view. 6) In the Ribbon UI, go to List View Tools -> Web Part tab 7) Click "To Site Gallery" from "Save Web Part" section. 8) Give it a name and description (e.g. "ParentA") 9) Click "Yes" when the message pops up.  This ensures that the web part will point to the original source (i.e. main site) 10) In the browser, go to your subsite 11) Edit the page, insert web part through the browser ribbon. 12) Go to Miscellaneous section, and select the web part you saved. I have found if the document library is set to 'Allow Management of Content Types' the web part added to the child site will fail with the below error "Value does not fall within the expected range".

Request for Proposal Template: "Request Document" list not showing correct files

  

Hi, I've ran in to a challenge with the standard Request for Proposals (RfP) template. Due to the number of proposals we use, the huge number of documents per proposal and a need to keep historic results I have had to add folders into the "request documents" library for each RfP to reduce the number of documents shown in the list when creating an RfP and confusing users.

All works fine, however when I create a new RfP, I see additional files in the "request documents" list instead of just the folder names. It looks like it is also readin gthe contents of each foldr, but not all files are listed. Versioning is turned on for major and minor releases as default.

As I am unable to view the details of the standard new RfP page I am struggling to work out how to fix this.

 

Any ideas?

 

thanks

MOSS 2007 Strange Problem with edit forms, content types and document library columns

  

I'm having a strange problem and have not been able to track down any useful answers over google.

I inherited a SharePoint site that I am now making some changes to.

I am having problems with one document library.  We had custom edit forms on this document library, which I was finding a pain to maintain so I reset them back to the site definition.  This edit form now shows only those fields that are associated with the Document content type (the only content type - I've deleted the others) on the document library.  There are other columns on this document library that are NOT associated with the content type that I would like to show on the edit form but they are not available when I try to add them to the content type via Settings > Document Content Type > Add from existing site or list columns.  The select columns from drop down is set to List Columns.  The Additional Authors column is just not there.

I CAN see this field on the all items view for the document library, it is there and populated with data.

Setting the Allow Managed content types radio button to NO does not have any impact on which fields are visible on the form- I still see those same fields that have been associated with the Document content type.

Has anyone else seen this or does anyone have any thoughts??

Cannot Use Excel Spreadsheet (xlsx) as Template for Content Types or Document Libraries

  

I have created a document library, specifying that the 'Microsoft Excel Spreadsheet' be used as the document template.  When I try to create a new document by selecting the template from the 'new Document' drop down, I get a message stating that 'The document could not be created.  The required application may not be installed properly, or the template for this document library cannot be opened.' Additionally, the template is opened as template[1].xltx in notepad (with all of the funny characters you would expect).

I have Office Professional Plus 2010 installed on my computer, and I am able to open XLSX and XLTX files from SharePoint (just not from the 'new document' button).  I also have no problem with PowerPoint or Word templates in SharePoint. I am also able to open the excel template by navigating to the template in explorer view.  I've found that if I open Excel before I attempt to create a new document, the template will open in Excel, however the document is titled 'Template1' instead of 'Document1' as would be expected.  Any thoughts?


Moving Document Libraries with Content Types & Metadata

  

Hello All,

Was hoping someone could give me some guidance on this issue.  I have been working on a document management strategy for my department's sharepoint site which consists of numerous document libraries configured to a number of content types..  Lots of metadata and views.. etc

Recently, the IT department in our organization has started work on a green slate installation of Sharepoint.. new server, fresh install, master pages, site hierarchy, the works..  

Guess my question is, how hard is it going to be to migrate my document libraries  while keeping my metadata and content types intact?  I probably have about 21 content types and almost 10 Gigs of data to transfer over... not sure what the best approach is having all this content migrated over to the new portal.

I have done some research and either only find articles on moving content types or moving document libraries, but no articles on moving both and having the content types map to the document libraries while keeping the metadata.

Any help or guidance would be appreciated.

SharePoint 2010 Event Receiver verifying Content Types inside Document Sets

  

I have a document library and document set is added as one of the content types. The user goes inside the document set and inside the document set, I have 2 different content types. Now my scenario is that, one of the content types - which is referred as Main Report should not be used twice. I mean, within the document set, only one document of Main Report content type should exist. How can we do this?

Hi,

I have a document library and i use a custom template "templateA" in it,This also inherits from "Folder" content type. When i'm restoring this template backup file to a new library,It missed the content type "templateA" and appears as "Folder" in all items.

SharePoint Tutorial - Content Types

  
SharePoint content types provide users with a way to manage and organize content in a more meaningful way. It's a reusable of settings you want to apply to a particular type of document in a library or item in a list.

Content types are simply collection of contents.Each content in a Content type can have different settings.Basically it is a reusable collection of settings which you want to apply to a particular category of contents.
