Odd SharePoint Survey behavior

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 07, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I created two survey's. Let's call them A and B. Created both from the same template. Have created over 100 other surveys from the same template in the past and have never seen this phenomenon before. Created survey A. Everything looks fine. Had a coworker put in a fake response and it was shown normally. Created survey B. Same result; everything is fine. Then I went back to survey A and I see the responses for B. The A responses are no longer showing. When I go to 'survey settings' for A, I get the page for survey B settings. I can hover over the response links in A and see they are pointing to B. However, if I go to 'all site content' I see both A and B listed. If I hover over A, it show the link going to A (as it should). If I click the link, I am taken to survey A....but it's still showing responses from B! The only way to get to the actual A responses is to use 'manage content and structure' to manually get there. Everything appears checked in and up to date. I have never seem this before and really have no idea what to try....

Link Access 2007 to SharePoint 2007 Survey

So here is my problemo. I am trying to organize site requests into a system that will let us easially see what requests have come in and who are the particular owners or users associated with the requests. Currently we use a SharePoint 2007 Survey to collect all the requests. I was hoping to upgrade things by linking the Survey list to an Access 2007 db so we can manage the data better. However, whenever I attempt to link the Access DB to a SharePoint list, none of the survey lists show up. I was wondering if there was a way to make it so whenever someone completes a survey, it updates the Access DB. I have figured out a way to get this to work with InfoPath but I would rather use the surveys that already exist. Thank you, Jeb G.

Sharepoint Survey Question

SharePoint 2007 - Survey list - Getting user's Windows account ID from a web service using display

Surveys...grrrr.   I am developing a .NET console application that accesses survey data from a single survey list using the MOSS web service "Lists".   I am able to enumerate the survey list and get to the items except for the author of the survey response.  When I get to the column ows_Author, it appears to be a lookup value formatted like this:  "1066;#JOHN DOE".   How can I, using web services alone, lookup the corresponding Windows login ID of that user?  If I go to the survey in SharePoint and click on the name in the view, it takes me to a site-based user profile page that does show the account ID I want.  The page that displays appears to be a virtualized page like this "_layouts/userdisp.aspx?ID=1066".   What I really need is JOHN DOE's account ID like "domain\id". Can I get to this with the data I have available? Thanks

Sharepoint 2007 Survey - View response - Firefox layout issue



I've got a survey running on a Sharepoint 2007 site but when I open the view response page (DispForm.aspx) using Firefox 3 the layout is incorrect - The question text is not wrapping and so I've got one massively wide column.

In both Safari and IE this isn't a problem, it works fine - the problem is Firefox capability.

Has anyone come across a fix for this? I've spent the last couple of hours searching on the net with little success.

Thanks in advance
