User Filter web part: how to show items with no value in it

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 15, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I want to set up a document library View that shows the current user all items with their Department name in a column, as well as those items that don't yet have a Department name. I thought I could do this with the User Filter web part, but I am struggeling to show the items that don't yet have a department name. The problem I have is this: I created a view called "My department's items". I use the User Filter web part on it to show the user all items that have got the user's department name in a column. However, when a user forgets to fill out the department name after uploading a file, or even when they upload the file but then cancel filling out the compulsory fields, the uploaded file disappears from the "My department's items" view (because the department column is empty). How can I set up a filter to show all files that match the current user's department name as well as those that don't have a department name yet? Thanks.

Choosing Between a User Control or Web Part for SharePoint

SharePoint will only display Web Parts on a page. However, there are publicly available shims that allow you to write user controls and have them be displayed as a Web Part. From SharePoint's point of view, the shim is a Web Part. From the point of view of the user control, the shim is simply a control in .NET that is including the user control

Creating Sites/Lists/List Items under Current User Context in SharePoint By Using SPUserToken

Usually we do this by performing the action under RunWithElevatedPrivileges method and updating the listitem using SPListItem.SystemUpdate() method (see here). but this approach has its own flaws like (RunWithElevatedPrivileges will run under system account, we cannot use SystemUpdate for SPSite,SPWeb,SPList, since it runs under system we will "CreatedBy" by as SystemAccount).

Report Filter: Project ID
proj_name     Status

B              60
C              80

I have this workbook published onto Sharepoint server through excel services.

If I have alist with a view that has the columns Title, Status and Status Date and the view has some items.

Can the default member for the sql server analysis filter web part be a mdx expression or not

I have designed a dashboard , some parametrized reports ( on date and time) in my case with a cube as datasource, added an analysis services 2005 filter, connected it to the reports. The issue concerns the default value for the filter . I f I choose [Date Local].[Calendar Hierarchy].[All] it works well. But the business requirement is to use the last day where there have been registered a measurement which in my case looks like the following mdx expression: Tail( Filter ([Date Local].[Date Key].[Date Key].Members , ( ( [Advisor Organisation].[Advisor organisation].[Contact Center].&[Denmark]&[Kundelinjen], [Measures].[Calls Offered] , [Date Local].[DK Holiday].&[False] , [Date Local].[Week Day].&[True] ) > 0 ) ), 1).Item(0).Item(0) The expression is all right as I use it in my report as an mdx filter expression. But when I use apply it I get an invalid dafault member value. So the question is : Does the filter support an mdx expression ? If yes, is there another syntax or change in order to make it work ? Thank you a lot for your answer.
