E-Mailing Attachments from the Document Center

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 14, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Good Morning, All. We have implemented a Document Center Site in MOSS 2007.  We have created 5 custom columns of metadata, and as seems to be recommended by many, many experts, we are not creating any folders within the document library.  We've migrated about 1,500 documents to the Document Center so far, and our goal is that eventually, any document that is shared between multiple teams will wind up here. The column filters and views work great for narrowing the list to manageable sets of documents, and the Search Center Site is fantastic for quickly locating documents that we can't seem to find via filters and views.  ...all good so far, right? The major challenge occurs when we are attempting to supply customers with one or more documents from the Document Center via an e-mail attachment.  The filters, views, and search feature are obviously unavailable within the "Insert File" dialog box in Microsoft Outlook, so we are forced to search manually through 1,500 documents to find what we are looking for. An alternative is to locate the desired document via the filters/views/search in SharePoint, right-click and "Copy Shortcut" and paste the path into the "Insert File" dialog box.  However, this method becomes unreasonable as soon as we need to attach more than one document to an e-mail message (especially

Search does not find text in Word document stored in document library on a Report Center site within



We have a document library on a site created off of the Report Center site template. We uploaded a Word 2007 document with the word zebra in the text. Using the search bar at the top of the page we selected This list: Our document library and searched for zebra. We received no results.

We tested the same thing on another site (site template Team site) within the same site collection and search worked fine.

Does the Report Center search function differently then the search functionality on the Team site?

File Attachments from info-path forms to Sharepoint document library

Any help please?? Appreciated




question on attachments/document upload in SharePoint

Scenario: I have business need where I need to attach some documents to a document library. My users fill out a form, which is a custom List Form in a list called "Request" but on the same form I want to provide my users a document upload feature which will save the document to a document library called "Request Documents".

In other words, request information such as Title, Department, Description etc get saved to "Request List" (SharePoint List) whereas the documents attached/uploaded (if there are any from the user) while filling the same request form out, get saved in the "Request Documents" (SharePoint Document Library) with the same ID #. If Request ID was 100, then the uploaded document(s) in the Document Library should also be 100.

I tried a few techniques out, and I'm reading some more on Data Source Library of SharePoint but I believe I need some help from the community before I do anything further.

Web Part Error on a clean SP2010 install in Document Center

On a clean SP2010 install I created a Document Center site.On the main site page under the "Upload Document" web part there's another web part, which displays this error: Web Part Error: A Web Part or Web Form Control on this Page cannot be displayed or imported.

Or is my installation somehow corrupted?And what is this web part and how can I register it as safe?

Opening pdf from Sharepoint 2010 Document Center


Is there a way to open a PDF in a web browser, just like Office Web Apps?  Everything I've tried results in the PDF being saved first.  I do not want to save these files, I only want to view them.



Emailing Attachments to Document Libraries


One of my users wants to send emails that have attachments to a document library email address.  When they try to send anything over 3 MGs they get an undeliverable message that says

This message is too large to send. To be able to send it make the message smaller, for example, by removing attachments.

I talked to our Exchange guy and he said everything is fine on that side.  Can anyone tell me if there is a Central Admin setting that can fix this?  The file upload size is set to 1000 MB. 

Document Center capacity



What is the capacity of a document center template? We need to plan a document management solution and migrate documents from a few sites in previous version. It is ok from a functional point of view to set a unified site collection to manage most of the documents. the question is whether this site template may support that storage or may support managing the documents in some content_db (which as far as i know can be done only on a site collection basis)

Document Library incoming email attachments not showing To/From information


I have a document library setup to accept incoming emails as attachments.

When I send an email the document library receives it, the only problem is it doesn't show any of the header information such as who sent it, who it was sent to, who was CC'ed.  Is there any way to have this information shown?

Basically what I'm expecting to see before the body message is the From, To and CC.

Any help would be most appreciated.

Within SharePoint 2007, can one send a document to a 2010 Records Center?


I have a working 2010 Records Center with a good Send To connection within the 2010 SharePoint environment.


I have copied the 2010 Send To URL (http://hostname/records/_vti_bin/OfficialFile.asmx) and created a Send To connection within the 2007 environment.


When I use the Send To in 2007, 2007 tells me that it cannot find or access the 2010 Records Center.

Record Center Document Permission



I was wondering how the MOSS Record Center permission works. Let say for instance base on a policy you route a documents from a Doc Library A to a Record Center Doc Library B. Let say user and document owner on Doc Librabry A wants to have access to his/her document, would he/she be able to access the doc with setting new permissions. I n other words, does Record Center keeps the item level permission from its origin.


Thank you


why email and attachments not separated in email enabled document library?


I noticed that an email-enabled document library sometime separates email and attachments and it ends up with multiple items in the library; sometimes it does and it ends up with one item.

How do we control this or what is the trick here?

This is really frustrating!


Working with SharePoint document libraries

Document libraries are collections of files that you can share with team members on a Web based on Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services. For example, you can create a library of common documents for a project, and team members can use their Web browsers to find the files, read them, and make comments. Users with Microsoft Office 2003 can check out and edit the files as if they resided on a local or network drive.

By default, your team Web site comes with a built-in document library named Shared Documents, which is listed on the Quick Launch bar as well as on the Documents and Lists page.

jQuery $(document).ready() and ASP.NET Ajax asynchronous postback

Many call it the ASP.NET jQuery postback problem, but using the technique below should make it no problem anymore. $(document).ready() isn't called after an asynchronous postback. What this means? You lose the functionality that should be executed within $(document).ready() after an UpdatePanel rendered its contents after an asynchronous postback.

SharePoint Document Workspaces for Developers

Office 2003 is being released this month, and a cast of supporting applications is already available. One of these is Windows SharePoint Services 2.0, the free team add-on for Windows Server 2003. If you're not familiar with SharePoint Services basics, take a look at What Developers Need to Know About Windows SharePoint Services. In this article, I'm going to drill into one key place where SharePoint and Office 2003 overlap: document workspaces

Upload a File to a SharePoint Document Library - Part I

The following helper class demonstrates a few techniques that allow documents to be uploaded to a SharePoint document library programmatically without using the API or a custom web service. You don't need to specify a document library name, and it will create any folders specified in the URL as required. File meta data will be updated if any properties are passed.
