Posted By:      Posted Date: September 15, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I am running SP 2007, Enterprise. Assume i have a 30 page document & several people make changes to it. How can I see the changes, that each person makes. Ideally I am looking for something similar to track changes in Word. Version control does not show where the changes were made.

Integrate LOB Document Management System



I think this is the right forum but forgive me if not. 

As part of an interim solution we need to integrate an LOB document management solution within SharePoint and i need some expert advice on how to do it and hope this is the right place.

The LOB system has document indexes (meta data) stored in a database linked to documents held on hard disk. For now we can't pull all of the documents into SharePoint but i need a way to access them from SharePoint, i also need to acces them through the LOBs existing web site.


1. Be able to use the Entreprise Search within SharePoint to search the index data  with the LOB database.

2. The search results page to provide links to a SharePoint page which hosts the LOB's web site. Pass some unique document Id to the LOB website so that it can show the document within SharePoint.

My thoughts (i'm new to SharePoint and don't know if this is feasible or the right way to do it so shout if you think it's a load of tosh);

1. Create a new SharePoint site or add a new page to an existing site.
2. Add a Page Viewer web part (or a custom one) to the site which points, to the LOBs web site.
3. Define the LOB system to the BDC telling it how to find the indexes (meta data) in the database tables.
4. One database record corresponds to one document. So

Can't save SQL Server Management Studio sql file back into Sharepoint Document Library

I created an sql query file in SQL Server Management Studio and saved it onto my hard drive.  I then moved that file into a Sharepoint Document Library so others on my team could use that query.I opened the file from within sharepoint, it launched SSMS.I made a change to the file and pressed save.here is the error message that comes up."The operation could not be completed.  The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process"Am I doing something wrong?

Document Compare feature in Sharepoint Document Management

We are in the design stage of implementing a Document Management system in Sharepoint.  My client wants to compare versions of documents.  Can anyone tell me if this feature in Sharepoint is using the Doc Compare function of Word or is there a more robust feature in sharepoint?  My client is looking for something more robust than what is offered by MS Word.

How to design centralized document management solution for Intranet

Our need: -SharePoint Server 2010 based Intranet with the document management solution.(about 200-300 documents) -All documents are centralized to one place -Managed metadata are added to every document. Metadata are used to search as well. -Folders are needed because of user permissions. Not everybody can open all documents. -Automatic item copy process to desired target place are desired to help end-user My design I planned this way, but did not work in practise. I created 1 centralized document library with several folders based on category. I user Content query webpart to display documents in other sites. This works fine. I wanted to automatic process to move added documents based on metadata. Example: When document include managed metadata "personnel" or "HR", the document is move to the folder named "Personnel". I made 2 different tests, but neither of them filled all requirements: 1. Using Content organizer, I was not able to make conditions based on metadata, but was able to move documents to the folders. 2. Using Workflow, I was able to make conditions based on metadata, but not able to move documents to the folders.   I failed to use metadata to move items to the Folder. Do you have any idea to me? I'm open to any ideas.Kenny_I

Document management features in sharepoint 2010



We would like to use document management using sharepoint 2010.

We would like to know what are its advantages over documentum.


Granular control for document management


We are using a product from NSI called AutoStore.  The way we have it configured, it monitors an e-mail address, and as new e-mail arrives, the message body, as well as all attachments, are converted to PDF, renamed, and uploaded to a SharePoint document library.  The end goal is to provide external users a way to access uploaded documents through the SharePoint web interface, but restrict them from seeing anything in the document library other than their own documents.  Is this possible?  Right now they can see their own documents, and other users' folders, but cannot see other users' documents within those folders.



How to implement robust Document Management application using MOSS 2007


I want to implement an efficient document management system using MOSS 2007.

I know Sharepoint 2007 offers OOB document management capabilties but I am facing strong challenge in uploading large files(500-1GB file size) into document library. If I have to avoid direct storing of files in document library then pointer/link to files in physical drives is possible but in that case I will not be able to leverage the full capabilities of sharepoint.

Need some views or directions in regard to this. Any link to custom solution/source code is most welcome.

Thanks in advance.

3rd Party Document Management Migration to SharePoint 2010



I am scoping out a document migration project to SharePoint 2010. I would like to ask a couple of questions about using the SharePoint SDK's to perform the migration to SharePoint from a 3rd party document management library. I would appreciate any comments or feedback. 

After reviewing the SDK's there are 2 I focused on. The Content Migration API and DocumentManagement API. Am I correct in assuming that the DocumentManagement API is used primarily for accessing documents and not necessarily perform a migration?

Second, the Content Migration documentation implies that it can be used to migrate 3rd party document libraries to sharepoint. From what I've seen, the method to do this would be to produce the XML files required by the Admin tool and store them in a .CMP file, which is just a CAB file. Yet, I don't see any methods outside the Run method for the SPImport and SPExport classes that can be used to produce the .CMP file.

Are there API's that i am missing or is this correct? If there are no other API's available to produce the .CMP using the SharePoint SDK, would it be feasible to use the CAB SDK to produce the .CMP file instead? If so, is there compression issues I need to be aware of and so forth?

I appreciate any insight regarding these questions.


Document management


Hi Folks

I am creating a application that does document management. I have created part of it where the user can upload the document to the server. It tracks each upload by user and organization and date time and so on.

I now want to create a way to view the documents. I  really just need a link so that when they click it they can open in word or excel or whatever type of document it is.

My data is in a table and the document is on the servers folders.

I need ideas on how would be the best approach or approaches to do what I want.

I want a page that a user can select a account number and then see how many of which type of documents have been uploaded then be able to click those document types to see the documents then from there pick the document to view.

I have a view setup to go get me some flat data from a couple of the tables the view looks like this.

DocId, coopcode, locationid, doctypeCode,docname, dateuploaded,docstorename, username, doctype, docdescription, fileurl

the data looks like this

1,   group123,  accountno123, 3, invoice.docx, 10/26/2010, 102610-xx.xx.xx-invoice.docx,myname, Invoice, Invoice of work done, ~/Uploads/doc/group123,acccountno123/102610-xx.xx.xx-invoice.docx

with this as an example

i log in with myname and then choose accountno123 in a dropdownlist and then it

Paragraph management & document composition using SharePoint?


Dear All,

I'm looking for a solution that allows individual users to manage the content of specific paragraphs. Each paragraph should be uniquely identifiable. The objective is to create one combined document layout that refers to the individual paragraphs. Each time the document is opened, the latest versions of each paragraph should be placed on the document.

Is this possible with SharePoint? Can you refer me to sites, links, ... on how to achieve this?

Thanks in advance,

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.

SharePoint document migration challenges when migrating files and folders

There are several challenges when migrating documents to Microsoft SharePoint. While these challenges can be overcome, they are a real pain if the migration source, content and file systems are not SharePoint friendly.
