list view connection filter doesn't work

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 16, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
  I have  a custom display form for documents library with two connected List View WebPart. I am trying to filter documents at the second list view with the value from the first one. Both list views contain data from the same documents library. I have configured the connection, but second list doesn’t display any item, and it doesn’t matter which field I use for filtering. Also  for another document s library’s custom  display form  it work perfect.But there second list view contain data from another documents library. Not the same as at first   case. Any ideas with my issue?

Workflow doesn't work anymore after renaming list

Hi All, I have created a list with the name "helpdesk test". After testing this list i renamed the list to "helpdesk". I did the rename by the list settings.  To this list i attached some workflows, with Sharepoint designer,  that have to start when a new item is created. All worked fine but after the rename the workflows don't work anymore. When i start the workflows manually from the list all works fine. Is there a way to rename a list and let the workflows work as before? Thanks in advance. Laurens.

Windows explorer view doesn't work on Windows 7

XML Viewer web part and SharePoint list RSS feed doesn't work

Hello, When I want to use the XML Viewer web part and set the XML URL to an RSS feed from a SharePoint list I get this error: Cannot retrieve the URL specified in the XML Link property. For more assistance, contact your site administrator. The URL I'm trying looks like this: http://sp2010/_layouts/listfeed.aspx?List=%7B76FD9EEE%2D9354%2D444E%2DBE3C%2DA9AE2C4B2063%7D I've seen blogpost that discuss this and they say that this is because of a security issue and that I have to enable anonymous access in order to display the RSS feed. Is this the only option there is ? I don't want to enable anonymous access on my SharePoint site. Why can't SharePoint just request the RSS feed with the credentials of the logged in user ? Or am I missing something here?

How to filter a List View by multiple values for one filter field?

Hi, I need to create a dynamically created link to a List View with a filter on one field, but with multiple values. Example: http://<server>/Lists/<list>/Allitems.aspx?FilterField1=Name&FilterValue1=John/Jack/Jonas which should give me all items where Name equals John, Jack or Jonas. Is this even possible?

Custom List View - filter blank value



I am creating a custom list view in SPD2010 and am having some problems. I want to have 3 filters (language, country and quarter). I have set these up as ASP drop down lists that auto postback and then I have defined the paramaters and linked them into the list filter.




This works fine and all 3 drop downs filter the list. The only problem I am having is if I want to search just on one column. The way I have it set up in the filter is

Country EQUALS [Country] AND
Language EQUALS [Language] AND
Quarter EQUALS [Quarter]

If I want to show all entries from Germany and not filter on Language and Quarter how do I do this? I have tried adding a "Please Select.." entry at the top of the list and setting the value to nothing but it does not work. I have had to create 3 seperate views but I would love to get these 3 filters working at the same time.

Is there a value in SP that I can use to filter on blank values or not consider the column at all? I have tried using nothing in the value and also tried NULL but neither have worked.

I have been trying to solve this for some time with no luck :( If anyone has any

Custom List Form web part connection to data view


We have a sharpoint site to manage "projects".    That site includes a document library.  The documents uploaded to the library are categorised based on the project they belong to.

We are trying to implement a custom list form for editing a project record that does one of the following:

1. When the edit form is loaded for a particular projects record that edit form also shows a list of relevant documents.


2. Include a button or link on the edit form to another page that lists only the documents for the current project.

We thought this would be easy to do using web part connections.  If we click on the custom list form it gives us the option to setup a web part connection.  However, if you follow this wizard through and get to the stage of selecting columns to link, there are no columns listed for either the custom list form or for the target dataview.  This is the case whether the target data view is on the same page, ie in case of option 1 or on a different page as in case of option 2.

Could someone advise us how we could either get the web part connections between the custom list form and other dataviews to work or how we could hyperlink to a dataview and pass the id of the record currently being edited to that dataview as a filter?

We are using Sharepoint Designer so would appreciate any suggestions base

Dynamic Data Foreign Key Filter - how to limit the # of dropdowns on the list view



I have a visual basic website in VS 2010 framework 4, linx to SQL, with scafolding.... and this dataclass has about 10 foreign key fields, of which all 10 are shown in the list view of the website.  I want the ability to exclude those filters from the list view (or exclude some and keep some), but without eliminating them from the edit forms.  Using <scafoldingcolumn("False")> does the trick to remove them entirely but that will also remove them from the grid/list itself, which I don't want, and remove the column from the edit record views, which I don't want either.

Any help would be great!!!!

Column filter in Business Data List web part does not work for all fields


I have a BDC entity whose fields contain a variety of data – numbers, dates and strings.  When I use the business data list web part I find that some of the columns’ dynamic filtering (accessed from the list’s column header) doesn’t work.  For these problem fields, the filter values load correctly but when I select a value all records disappear.  Initially I thought this was limited to just string columns but there is one string column that does filter correctly.

Here are some things that may be useful to know:

1.       The datasource is a SQL view and all fields are varchar(255)


custom field type works in view properties, but not in list view: 3 parent fields filter child list,


My situation:

A) odd thing is that no matter where I put a stop point in my custom field type, it is NEVER hit when the items are displayed in list view.  Event with <Field Name="CAMLRendering">TRUE</Field> which causes the list to error out, but again no stop point to help me know why.

B) the value of the column in question will be different for every user who views the list, I'm querying a secondary list based on the user's loginName, and two of the fields from the list we're in. 

C) the display is customized based on whether any records were returned and the current DateTime, so possible displays would be "", "! 12/1/2010", and "7/7/2011"

D) and the text displayed links over to a form for them to do their assignment. the link url would be a config setting url + "?[one of the fields form the list we're in]"

My questions:

1) Is it possible for fieldtype code to execute while a list view is being rendered?

2) If not, then should I chase down the path of a content query webpart?  Will it be able to filter on the current users login name?

3) If not on 1 or 2, can you think of any other way to do this beyond creating a custom application page? (need to having filtering and sorting on this page)

After using Proc_AddListItem it doesn't show in the GUI List View??


I am using SSIS to pull a list from our production database to get a list of names and compare it to a list in sharepoint, then update the sharepoint list with any new names. Right now what I have working is a lookup transformation from our production database to the sharepoint database and an output file destination to put all the new names in.

so it looks something like this in my data flow....

get production data -> convert it so it matches sharepoint data types ->lookup the values in sharepoint and compare them to production ->output any names that don't match to an excel file.

This works great!

here's what I need to do...

Once I get the new names, I need to insert the new names back into the sharepoint list. I have been testing the Proc_addlistitem in Sharepoint to accomplish this and the procedure actually works great and puts the list item in the AllUserData table perfectly! The problem is that Sharepoint doesn't update the actual listitems on the client side. For example, I insert a new item and validate the data, then I go to our local sharepoint site and the listitem DOES NOT appear in the list! What! I can't figure this out.

I can't move on to the next step in my data flow without figuring out why Sharepoint is not showing my data after inserting values.


Cannot filter a KPI list view



I'm just starting work with KPI in MOSS 2007 recently. Hopefully, I'm on the right forum. Please let me know if otherwise.

So, I've created a new KPI list. Inside that KPI list, I've created several indicators using data from another custom list on the same site. All of these indicators are using "All items" view from that custom list. Next, I've added another indicator from that same custom list but using a different view.

The indicators are working fine. I'm trying to create new view on that KPI list to show me the indicators that I'm interested in. I'm able to create new view based on the default "KPI List" view, but the filter doesn't seem to work. No matter which field or value I specify, the new view always shows all the indicators.

Is that the expected behaviour? I've tried to search online, but didn't see anything that can be of help. I need to create filtered view of the KPI list, because I'm showing these indicators on a web part page as part of a dashboard. For that, I'm using the web part for "Key Performance Indicator" but I don't need to show every single indicators. Only certain indicators will suffice.

One workaround I can think of is to create a separate KPI list and separate my indicators into different lists, but that sounds like an odd workaround/over the top!!!

Disable filtering on a Dynamic Data list view.


I have an entity set of NotificationTemplates, and each one of these has a collection of zero-many SmsTemplate entities. When editing or viewing a NotificationTemplate, I have a link to View SMS Templates. That link takes me to a List view for the SmsTemplates entity set, filtered for the NotificationTemplate I was viewing.

How can I prevent the user changing this filter to show SmsTemplates for another NotificationTemplate? That is, I want the filter, but it must be read only. The drop-down just mustn't drop down, it must just display the name of the NotificationTemplate that these SmsTemplates belong to. To view SmsTemplates for another NotificationTemplate, the user must click View SMS Templates from that other template.

This was originally asked by myself on SatckOverflow at: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3514373/disable-filtering-on-a-dynamic-data-list-view

When I use 'publish', site doesn't work when i post data


Arrgghh, I am so tired of dealing with stuff like this

I've got a project, when I put up on another server I point two sites in IIS6 to it

i have

http://www.main.com  pointing to the folder the files are in


http://www.anotherofoursites.com/main pointing to that same folder in it's own "Virtual Application" or whatever IIS calls it when you put a folder into it's own 

If I just "Build" and push all the files up.. both work without issue and as expected...  but when I use "Publish" to precompile, the site works until I post, and then i get nailed with:

Server Error in '/' Application.
