How can I prioritise search results to show where document metadata has a hit first and then where t

  

When my users run a search against a site with a bunch of document libraries they will often search for terms that are in the title of the doc, if they do know the title they will put that in. What I would like to do is have the results ordered such that if any hits are on the document metadata (eg Title) then they are presented first and any results that are from hits on the content of the documents are presented later.

So, if they get the title spot on in their search query that document will appear first .... if they don't get it right then the likelyhood is that the title is something like what they entered so similar titled docs are presented first and then those with matching content ....

How can I achieve this?

 


Files in document libary not picking up the correct content types

  
Hi, I have a document libary where I have 10 InfoPath content types attached. For eg: Type1, Type2 etc... Type10. In this doc lib, I have a folder for each cutomer, and inside each of those folders, I have a file of each Content type (".xml"). I am creating these Folders and files programatically. The problem is that, the files are not picking up its content types. Every file (.xml), when uploaded, its content type is "Document" which is the default content type. Earlier it used to pickup the correct content types. What could be wrong?

How can I get search to work for a Custom Document Library with a few third-party field types?

  
Hi, Using WSS 3.0 with SQL Server 2008 for Workgroups I have created a Custom Document Library (2,462 files - copied from folder into Explorer view and then renamed using Batch Update in web services i.e. "BaseName" field) - basically it uses three fields that are of "Filtered Lookup" (a field type from a third party). The document library is included in the search (i.e. Advanced Settings), but it displays none of the files - bascially not included in search at all with all testing I have done. I created a new Document Library called "Test" and uploaded a document and it is included in the search. Is there any way I can debug this. Is there a log file? Is there something in the Search Database that might help? Your help would be really appreciated as this is my last issue - and its soooo important to the deliverable. Thanks. John.

XsltListViewWebPart: Document Library with Content Types

  
Good Morning, I have a requirement to add a webpart from a parent site to a child site to display a document library list view web part. Site structure eg: /parent/DocumentCenter /parent/ChildSite I have followed the instructions below as per http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepoint2010customization/thread/05c2c386-b6f3-4a4b-9641-e46d5bb3d4c2; 1) Open the parent site in SPD 2010.  2) Select "Lists and Libraries" from the left navigation pane 3) Select a list 4) In the "Views" section on the right, either open an existing view (e.g. AllItems.aspx) or create a new view. 5) In SPD page editor, click on the view. 6) In the Ribbon UI, go to List View Tools -> Web Part tab 7) Click "To Site Gallery" from "Save Web Part" section. 8) Give it a name and description (e.g. "ParentA") 9) Click "Yes" when the message pops up.  This ensures that the web part will point to the original source (i.e. main site) 10) In the browser, go to your subsite 11) Edit the page, insert web part through the browser ribbon. 12) Go to Miscellaneous section, and select the web part you saved. I have found if the document library is set to 'Allow Management of Content Types' the web part added to the child site will fail with the below error "Value does not fall within the expected range".

Search Results Customization - Display Document LibraryTitle Instead of Document Metadata Title

  
I am running a pretty basic SharePoint 2010 setup that is being used as an intranet for my organization.  This also includes service up internal documents to our users.  Currently, our documents are displayed on various pages using the CQWP and are organized by title as dictated by the document library title.  As part of the search capabilities of this site, I have implemented a basic search page to return results on the documents from this list.  The problem I am running into is that the search results are displaying results based on the metadata title of the actual document instead of the assigned document library title. My questions are this: How do I change the search results so they display based on the document library title? How do I view what columns are currently being crawled by the search capabilities? Thanks in advance for any help you might be able to provide!

Search results are not displaying the results related to a particular document library

  

While using the search box in a site, the search results are not displaying the results related to a particular document library.

What is the reason for this? How can this be solved?


Search Results from one content source

  
Hello all,

I have created two Advanced Search pages that are designed to return the results from specific content sources. To achieve this, I have done the following to the Advanced Search box web part properties XML:
Under each <ResultType DisplayName> tag I have added 
AND ContentSource='nameofcontentsource'
to the <Query> tag. Before the "contentsource" code, there is a "IsDocument=1

In our DEV environment, this worked fine. The results being returned are only from the specific content source. In our TEST environment, I have done the same thing, but I get results from all content sources.

Can anyone help me determine what I have missed? The Core Results web part is not set up with a scope, and almost everything looks identical between the DEV & Test environment.


Search documents by document types in MOSS 2007

Anybody has any idea.

Thanks in advance


filter search results to specific document library

  

Hi all.  I have a sharepoint 2007 subsite, which is a small part of a large corporate sharepoint 2007 system.  I only have admin rights on my chunk.

I would like to limit a search to a specific document library within my subsite, and further would like the search results to return additional non-standard meta-data from this library.

Is this something that I can do without creating a new search scope? 


MOSS 2007 Strange Problem with edit forms, content types and document library columns

  

I'm having a strange problem and have not been able to track down any useful answers over google.

I inherited a SharePoint site that I am now making some changes to.

I am having problems with one document library.  We had custom edit forms on this document library, which I was finding a pain to maintain so I reset them back to the site definition.  This edit form now shows only those fields that are associated with the Document content type (the only content type - I've deleted the others) on the document library.  There are other columns on this document library that are NOT associated with the content type that I would like to show on the edit form but they are not available when I try to add them to the content type via Settings > Document Content Type > Add from existing site or list columns.  The select columns from drop down is set to List Columns.  The Additional Authors column is just not there.

I CAN see this field on the all items view for the document library, it is there and populated with data.

Setting the Allow Managed content types radio button to NO does not have any impact on which fields are visible on the form- I still see those same fields that have been associated with the Document content type.

Has anyone else seen this or does anyone have any thoughts??

Cannot Use Excel Spreadsheet (xlsx) as Template for Content Types or Document Libraries

  

I have created a document library, specifying that the 'Microsoft Excel Spreadsheet' be used as the document template.  When I try to create a new document by selecting the template from the 'new Document' drop down, I get a message stating that 'The document could not be created.  The required application may not be installed properly, or the template for this document library cannot be opened.' Additionally, the template is opened as template[1].xltx in notepad (with all of the funny characters you would expect).

I have Office Professional Plus 2010 installed on my computer, and I am able to open XLSX and XLTX files from SharePoint (just not from the 'new document' button).  I also have no problem with PowerPoint or Word templates in SharePoint. I am also able to open the excel template by navigating to the template in explorer view.  I've found that if I open Excel before I attempt to create a new document, the template will open in Excel, however the document is titled 'Template1' instead of 'Document1' as would be expected.  Any thoughts?


WSS 3.0 - How can I get a document ID in Search Results.aspx page.

  

Hi,

Does anyone know how I can get the ID of a document in the SearchResults.aspx page?

I have got javascript code in this page to update the link of the icon to edit the document as opposed to viewing it (Need Document ID though).

There must be a way to do this using server side code??????

Your help would be most welcome.

Thanks.

The search result doesn't show the Word document's Title properties.

For example a Office 2007 Word document has Title properties as "Dell, Template (MN 520287) Test Method", the first word in the document is "Opearation".

The Search result shows the search result with the first word of the document as the search result as

External Content Types + Search Service: Cannot crawl my external content type

  

Hi,

I created an external content type by creating a new Visual Studio sharepoint project, and creating a content type (The default Entity1 content type). I created a profile page for it and everything, and when I drilled into the content type in central admin - BCS, I saw it wasn't marked as crawlable.

I saw this similar post: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en-us/sharepoint2010general/thread/281BCEFD-59EC-41CC-B948-458A4BDA9E49

So I then created an external content type through SPD, leveraging the same code, and creating an external list and profile page. This time, when I drilled into the external content type in the BCS administration, it showed "Crawlable: Yes".

I figured at that point I was good to go, but when I went to my search service application -> Content Sources -> New Content Source and selected Line of Business Data, and selected BDC, it still says "No external data sources to choose from."

I verified also that the account for crawling has permissions for the external content type.

Are there any other things I should be looking for? From everything I read this should "just work" now :)

Thanks,

Bryan


Sharepoint 2010 Search Results crawling content on Quick Launch

  

I have a custom search scope defined for a site.  When I search, it is returning results for text that it is finding on the quick launch menu.  (For example, if the listname 'Tickets' is on the Quick Launch and the user searches for 'Tickets', all of the pages in the site get returned because the word 'Tickets' is on the Quick Launch)

Is this correct?  Is there any way to override that? 


Moving Document Libraries with Content Types & Metadata

  

Hello All,

Was hoping someone could give me some guidance on this issue.  I have been working on a document management strategy for my department's sharepoint site which consists of numerous document libraries configured to a number of content types..  Lots of metadata and views.. etc

Recently, the IT department in our organization has started work on a green slate installation of Sharepoint.. new server, fresh install, master pages, site hierarchy, the works..  

Guess my question is, how hard is it going to be to migrate my document libraries  while keeping my metadata and content types intact?  I probably have about 21 content types and almost 10 Gigs of data to transfer over... not sure what the best approach is having all this content migrated over to the new portal.

I have done some research and either only find articles on moving content types or moving document libraries, but no articles on moving both and having the content types map to the document libraries while keeping the metadata.

Any help or guidance would be appreciated.

Greg
