Unable to edit in datasheet - WSS 3.0

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 10, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 
When I try to edit a list in datasheet view I receive the following error: The list cannot be displayed in Datasheet view for one or more of the following reasons: A datasheet component compatible with Windows SharePoint Services is not installed, your browser does not support ActiveX controls, or support for ActiveX controls is disabled. This worked as of 2 or 3 weeks ago ( I do not remember the last time I tried it), and I cannot think of anything that has really changed locally or on the server. Other users have no issues. I have office 2003 with the SP parts installed. It is in my trusted site list and security is set to custom off a low template. All activeX controls are set to "allow" for the zone. I am also running IE 7 and SharePoint designer 2007, but both of these have been while it was working. Could a Windows or Office update have caused the problem? Any ideas?

Unable to edit in Datasheet View

  

Myself and several other users try to edit cells in a datasheet view and often get the error:  "Edit control creation has failed. You cannot edit cells".  This is an intermittent problem. We are all running Windows7 and Office 2007. Any ideas what causes this?


Unable to Edit the properties of a document using the ribbon

  

I have created a new web part page and added a document library to that page.  In the ribbon the "Edit Properties" icon is enabled and I can edit the document properties.

When I add another web part to the page and go back to select a document, on the ribbon the "Edit Properties" icon is no disabled.  I can still edit the document using the context menu of the document.

Permissions on the library did not change when I added the additional web part.  The only change to the page was adding an additional web part.


Cannot edit datasheet in WSS 3.0. Getting Unresolved errors.

  
I have two users who cannot edit in a datasheet view in SharePoint 3.0. I have tried reinstalling Office and IE. To no avail, this is becoming a big problem. All my other 40 users can edit just fine. I do not want to resort to reimaging the machines. I would rather fix the problem and document. Logged into the users machine, they cannot edit and when I login, I cannot edit. But if they log into my machine, they can edit. Any help would be appreciated.

Unable to Show Edit item Links in Data Form Web Part

  
I have a DFWP connected to custom list and the boxes to Show Edit Item Links, Show Delete item links and Show Insert Item links are grayed out so that they can not be checked. This works fine when I use a DFWP connected to a standard list (i.e., Contacts). Is there something special that needs to be done to activate this functionality?ThanksDean

Designer workflow + unable to edit task

  
I use the SPD to create a custom workflow which will assign to-do task to users. The workflow is attached to a list library in a subsite and users only have view-only permission to the subsite (users are added to the subsite directly, not inside any sharepoint group).  In order for users to complete the assigned task, I have broken the permission inheritance and change users to have contribute permission on the Task list.   The workflow would trigger as expected and a new task is created for the user. The user can see the "edit task" link in the task item but when clicked "edit task", an "access denied" error occurs.   Under further investigation, I notice access are granted for sharepoint group e.g. site visitors, site members on URL http://....../workflow/workflow_name/newtask.aspx , and only when I create the workflow under the site administrator account. If I create the workflow under an account which also has "Full Control" to the subsite, No access are granted to the workflow library at all.   What permission levels do I need to create workflows in designer really? Does it make a difference if the workflow is on a top-root site or subsite? Full control on the top-root site or subsite?   Thanks in advance.

Unable to edit a wiki page

  
Few users who have the full control permissions inherited from the top site are able to create a wiki site (as expected), but when they try to edit the wiki content on the page of the newly created site, they get a permission error (unexpected).  Not all users have this problem.  Another user who belong to  the same people group is able to edit the page without any problem (wierd).  Given below is the error message You are not authorized to view this page You do not have permission to view this directory or page due to the access control list (ACL) that is configured for this resource on the Web server Please try the following: Contact the web administrator if you believe you should be able to  view this directory or page.   Unfortunately, I am that web admin.  No clue what could be wrong.  Please advise.

Edit in Datasheet view does not work on one SharePoint 2007 farm, works on another.

  
The ability to edit in datasheet view on one of our environments no longer works.  I've tried different client machines on different builds and regardless of the install every library, list, etc. when attempting to edit in datasheet view shows as read only.  Our other environments those systems work as intended with those same clients. I've searched all over and haven't found anything that helped.  Any ideas?

User unable to edit there own announcement

  
I have a really strange issue where a user has created an announcement and posted it with no problem at all. Now they want to go back to it and edit it but as soon as they click on their announcement it pops up with Access Denied page. I have given the user Approve permissions but this still keeps happening. A full administrator, like myself, can go in and edit it quite happily so not sure what is going on here. Our system was upgraded from 2007 to 2010 and the new 2010 interface has not yet been applied. Has anyone else seen this before?

VS 2010 unable to edit or display xaml files.

  
Hi,

I am having a problem using the editor for xaml files in Visual Studio 2010.

I have used Visual Studio 2005 and 2008 for many years.  Over the last year or more I have been constructing and maintaining a Silverlight application, editing both the xaml code and using the design mode.  I am quite familiar with it and it worked fine.

However we recently installed several copies of Visual Studio 2010 as trial versions and since it seemed OK we converted to the full version.  However now I am having trouble viewing xaml files in the editor, in either the design mode or as text. 

Double clicking on a xaml file in the Solution Explorer, which should start the xaml editor, now does very little, leaving the main screen blank. The file seems to be open since it is listed in the list of open files in the 'Windows' drop down menu.  If I ask it to reload the file it says it is already open and do I want to close it before continuing.  But it is not accessible or visible.

Right clicking on a xaml file and selecting 'Open with..' shows the 'Automatic Editor Selector' is selected as default.  If I select 'Text Editor' I can at least see and edit the xaml code.  But I can not see the design mode.  If I select 'Windows Presentation Foundation Designer with encoding' from the 'Op

SharePoint / Project Server 2010 Unable to edit a HTTPS site in SharePoint designer 32 bit

  

Hi,

I posted this thread below under a different forum and was requested to move.  Below is our current problem and the feedback that was given.

We currently have a project server 2010 site with several workspaces associated with it.  When trying to edit the site (either from choosing edit is designer from the site actions or from trying to open from within the designer) a dialog appears asking to choose a certificate for the site.domain.com.

The certificate issued by the site is a GeoTrust certificate and checks ok when browsing the site in IE.  This Windows security dialog also appears when trying to export to excel on the same site.

Any thoughts to what we are missing?

Thanks,

Kevin
