I have installed sharepoint server 2007 sp2 on 64 bit WS 2008 standard edision server. I have IE8 installed on the server. When i browse the central administration site, non of tabs, drop down will work. For example when i go to create a web
application and put all the things and hit "OK" button, nothing happens. But if i replace the url with "localhost", everything works fine.
for example if my central admin url is "http"//servername:1000"- Controls will not work.
But if i use http://localhost:1000 - everythign works fine.
Any suggestion is helpful.

The next version of SQL Server, code-named "Yukon," will offer enhanced support for user-defined types (UDTs). Because UDTs can be managed by the CLR, you can represent a wide variety of data structures to create types not possible with previous versions of SQL Server. With UDTs you can more precisely control the kind of data your type accepts, resulting in better data management. This article explores UDTs in "Yukon" and covers their design and implementation.

If you've ever needed to build an easy-to-maintain intranet site, here's a solution based on Microsoft Office documents. Many sites require constant updating of their HTML, but the use of Word documents can simplify the process. This article details the construction of a human resources site that exploits the File System Object (FSO), OLE Structured Storage, and ActiveX capabilities of Word documents. This allows the HR staff to copy their revised or newly created Word files to the site, dynamically generate a list of links to their files, and free IS from the constant recoding of HR updates into new HTML pages.

We're currently encoutering an issue on our production servers with Office 2007 documents. In essence, the Content Type for all docx, xslx, and pptx documents cannot be changed away from the site default on all newly created sites.
I've even done some step by step debugging on an SPItem insert and I can set the content type to a custom type, but it reverts back to the site's default Content Type on Update(). Other file types - .doc, .xls, .tif, .txt, and .jpg - have all been tested,
and all work as expected (the Content Type changes correctly).
Thanks in advance!
