Cannot delete rows in a list via Lists web service's UpdateListItems-function, even though I am abl

Hi all, I'm trying to delete some rows in a SharePoint 2010 Foundation list via Lists.asmx -web service's UpdateListItems. The web service is called from BizTalk. I am able to create rows, but for some reason delete fails. I also use "GetListItems"-function without problems. The exception I get is Microsoft.SharePoint.SoapServer.SoapServerException. The message is "Cannot access a closed Stream." The updates-element of the UpdateListItems-function is as follows (well, a part of it, the real one has more Method-elements, but you get the gist..): <Batch OnError="Continue" ListVersion="1"> <Method ID="1" Cmd="Delete"> <Field name="ID">1900</Field> <Field name="IMEI">GFA-687</Field> </Method> <Method ID="2" Cmd="Delete"> <Field name="ID">1901</Field> <Field name="IMEI">OVG-567</Field> </Method> <Method ID="3" Cmd="Delete"> <Field name="ID">1902</Field> <Field name="IMEI">OXI-570</Field> </Method> </Batch> I've also tried that Batch without the IMEI-information, as well as with a valid ViewName. Why cannot I delete when I can clearly modify/create rows - what's up with th

Calendar View using Calculated Columns


I've got a large list of documents that undergo regular maintenance.  To help facilitate this, we had an Excel spreadsheet (recently converted into a Custom List in SharePoint) containing columns with "Date Last Revised"(Date), "Effective Period"(number), "Delay"(number), and "Next Revision Start Date"(calculated; Date Last Revised + Effective Period + Delay).

This works fine, until you get into SharePoint.  My columns are:
   Date Last Revised - Date and Time (Date Only) format
   Effective Period - Number format, Default Value = 365 (1 year)
   Delay - Number format, Default Value = 0
   Next Revision Start Date - Calculated (based on other columns) format; sum of other three columns

The Calculated column works fine, and will calculate a Date based on the values of the other columns.  HOWEVER, my ultimate goal would be to have a Calendar View of this information, where the Start/End dates are the "Next Revision Start Date" column.

When I try to use any other Date column, it works.  When I try to use the calculated "date" column, it gives me a generic error message:
An unexpected error has occurred.

I don't really want to lose the functionality of each item being able to have separate effective period and delay values, but any informatio

Default Calendar modification, unable to delete fields


Hello.  I'm new to Sharepoint Foundations 2010 (i've used Sharepoint Portal Server2007 and all the prior versions).  I would like to use the default calendar as a template but cannot delete the fields I do not want to use.  What are the steps to remove the fields (Something involving the Event Content Type) I do not wish to use?  I've tried deleting the content type but cannot (I get the following error: The last content type on a list cannot be deleted.Troubleshoot issues with Microsoft SharePoint Foundation. Correlation ID: bcb50019-5830-42f3-bde6-9b0353b803e1 Date and Time: 10/4/2010 2:24:05 PM ).  If I could create a new calendar with only the fields i need that has the current view in it that would be great.  I cannot seem to get a new view to mimic the current view from the calendar webpart.  any ideas could be greatly appreciated.



Why am I missing option to delete lists and libraries?


I just setup my first SharePoint 2010 site using the Publishing Site template. I seem to be missing the option to delete libraries. From what I understand, the option should be listed under Permissions and Management Settings on the List/Library Settings page. However, I don't have this option... I am logged in with an account that has Full Control permission.

What am I missing? Thanks!

Content Type or Lists Lookup Column can't show additional fields which are Choice or lookup columns


I am trying to create some content types, but this also happens when creating new columns in a list.

Ok, here is my setup (which is the most basic way to replicate the issue):

List 1: Department List
Columns: Department Name (Single Line of Text)

List 2: Document Owners
Columns: Document Owner (single line of text), Department (Choice or Lookup from Department List), Email (single line of text), Lookup Field (Calculated).

Content Type: Quality Document
Columns: File Name, Title, Document Owners (Lookup from Document Owners List), Email (pulled in with Document Owner), Then i want to also pull in Department from the Document Owners list.

That is where my problem is.  When i select the Document Owners List as the list to get the information from, there isn't the option under "Add a column to show each of these additional fields" to pull in the Department column.  This occurs if i use a Choice in the Document Owners list, or if i do a lookup from the Department List.

My preferred method of implementing this system would be to have a multi-value lookup field in the Department List for Document Owners so that the Owners are attached to the Department, and if the owners change for the department they also change for the document that is for said department.  But, i run into the same issue that i c

I have created a global calendar that takes events from my subsite calendar. It works great, the only problem is that I cannot change the default Title column in Month View Title, don't know what code to use. I know I should create a content Type to hold my custom column, so I'm using the same columns in all my subsites, I want to change Title as the column in "Month View Title", "Week View Title", "Week View Sub Heading", "Day View Title" and "Day View Sub Heading". I will continue my search but if anyone knows I'll be glad to get some help. Thanks.

Best of all worlds. External Lists vs. Managed Metadata vs. Choice Columns


Hello All,

I have items I would like to store in Sharepoint lists and am having a hard time finding the best way to do this.

The criteria are:

1. Need a rapid way to enter information (such as is possible with datasheet view)

2. Need certain columns in the content type to be consistent.. Either from an External Lists (from our LOB system) or managed metadata.

Those two criteria seem to be at odds with each other. Using an external list would really be nice because I can keep certain field’s relational data intact, however I can't use datasheet view. Datasheet view is important because it allows copy and paste/tab through data entry when many rows must be entered.

Displaying SharePoint lists in Web Parts

When you create a built-in or custom list in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services, Windows SharePoint Services creates a Web Part, a basic building block of a SharePoint site, to display that list. These Web Parts are called List View Web Parts. Windows SharePoint Services stores List View Web Parts in the site collection Web Part gallery. (The site collection Web Part gallery is the most central gallery of Web Parts for a work group. By default, the gallery name is the name of the site, such as "Our Team Site Web Part Gallery." )

SharePoint Tutorial - Lists

A list is a feature in SharePoint that stores a lists of information. For example, a list can be created to store web links in the human resources team site. A list is usually created for a specific type of information. Lists can contain metadata to describe the particular information in more detail and to make it easier to find.

Adding Dynamic Rows in ASP.NET GridView Control with TextBoxes and with Delete functionality

In my previous examples, I have demonstrated on how to add dynamic rows in GridView control with TextBoxes and how to save the values into the database. Now, seems that most of the developers are asking if how to add a delete functionality with it. So in this example, I'm going to show on how to delete a certain row in the dynamic GridView with TextBoxes.
