Issues connecting SharePoint Workspace 2010 with SharePoint 2010

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 18, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Has anyone tried using sharepoint 2010 client with networksolutions sharepoint 2007 server? i recently updated to office 2010 and also decided to start using sharepoint as it seems to be a great way to get things done with the team i manage internationally. Problem is that when i signed up for the sharepoint server service with network solutions it turns out that they are using sharepoint server 2010. every time i try to connect to the server using sharepoint 2010 from my desktop i get the following error message "sharepoint workspace cannot sync with the specified sharepoint site because its server version is not supported". I'm using office 2010 14.0.4760.1000 (32-bit). Can you guys let me know what i can do (besides downgrading sharepoint 2010 to 2007) to actually connect? surely i don't have to downgrade what i just bought to get this done? Any help appreciated.

SharePoint Workspace 2010 Crashing

Hello, I recently updgraded to Office 2010.  All applications work as intended, however SharePoint Workspace Crashes everything I try and run it. When I start the app, a dialogue opens up stating that it's creating account..., then the Account Configuration Wizard opens.  If I do anything at this point the app crashes.  I've tried stopping all FW, AV, etc and running the app again.  Same issue.  Any advice would be appreciated!

Meeting Workspace unusable after SharePoint upgrade to 2010

Hello, We recently took a content database from MOSS 2007 and attached it to a SharePoint 2010 farm that uses a different DNS name. Now, there's a user who had a recurring meeting configured in Outlook 2010 with a meeting workspace  who can no longer use the workspace now that it only exists on SharePoint 2010. She tried removing the link to the old workspace from her recurring meeting and adding a new location using the new URL, but she gets a message saying a workspace already exists at the site. Obviously it does, but the meeting in Outlook is the same meeting. Is there any way to re-connect the Outlook meeting with the meeting workspace that exists on the new SharePoint 2010 server? Thanks.

Issues with updating Lists with Manager Names and User Profile Imports in SharePoint 2010 Server

I am having a curious problem with SharePoint 2010 Server. I have imported all the user profiles of our organization into SharePoint User Profile Service Application from our Active Directory. When the Manager name imports it comes in as domain/login. The organizational browser seems to work for MOST people, but not all. I believe this is contributing to my second problem, which is, I have setup a very simple workflow in SharePoint Designer that simply looks up the persons Manager, then places that information into a field called "Approval 1". After that it looks at Approval 1 and get the Manager name and populated "Approval 2" with that information, and so on. I have used an Impersonation Step as the Farm Administrator in the workflow and I have done it without the impersonation step. Both results in the same problem. When I enter my name into the list and run the workflow it runs beautifully give every manager up the chain to the top. However, if I put any other person's name in there it gives me the error "Workflow failed to get user profile for user: ____". I went to my supervisor's office and asked him to run the workflow. Using his login he had the exact same result--if my name was in there it worked great, otherwise, it gave an error. Any help with this strange error would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks

format-number issues with the Data View Web Part in SharePoint 2010

I have a number column named @Year_x0020_1_x0020_Revenue in the data view web part in SharePoint Designer 2010. In the Xpath expression builder - @Year_x0020_1_x0020_Revenue previews "500,000" If I use the format-number in the Xpath expression builder ==> format-number(@Year_x0020_1_x0020_Revenue, '$#,##0.00;-$#,##0.00'), it returns NaN. Is there any reason?

SharePoint 2010 Profile Synchronization Issues

Hi Guys, I hope you can give me a hand on this. I am having a synchronization issue and it has me puzzled.  I have my moss server up and running without any issue.  It is even being used by departments already…which is great…documents are being uploaded…my sites created…department pages…etc.  Around mid-July I set up the user synchronization with AD…which worked fine.  I was able to set up profile synching without any issues…  The issue I am having now is that the profile syncing is no longer running for some reason.  When I click on Configure Synchronization connections, my old connection isn’t there anymore…so I click new and get the following message.   "Cannot navigate to the requested page while user profile synchronization is running.  Please wait for the current Synchronization to finish"   when i check my Profile Sync Settings, i see that User profile sync is not currently provisioned...and the incremental sync schedule is disabled.   And when I check the running jobs…I do not have any jobs running.   And finally, when I check the services running on the MOSS server, my User Profile Synchronization Service is sitting on stopped…and when I click start…it stays on starting for about 15 mins…and then goes back to stopped

Sharepoint Server 2010 issues


Hi, I am trying to implement these recommendations on a Sharepoint 2010 farm. I cannot get it to work. I have created a test site manually and got that to work however.

Has anyone else been able to get this working with Sharepoint 2010? 

The only deviation from the published instructions is that I have tried to edit the system.webserver.httperrors section in case this has some bearing but it doesnt seem to have made any difference. I just keep getting 404 errors.



SharePoint sync with Project 2010 - issues


I am having some issues with syncing project 2010 and sharepoint.

The following scenario works well...

Create plan.
Sync to sharepoint list.
Save Project file.

However the following scenario  does not work well...

Create plan.
Sync to Sharepoint list.
Forget to save project file.

When i re-open project file and sync, i get the error...

The task list was last synchronized to a different project plan. If you continue the task list will be appended to the project plan.
If I continue at this stage then i get a naming error.

One workaround is to delete all the project plan tasks and re-sync.
This brings all the sharepoint tasks back into the project file..
However, I cannot use the existing milestone field in SharePoint to sync with the project file.

Is there any way to sync project fields into existing columns in SharePoint?

I do not want to create a new column as i have a number of views with the old milestone column as part of a filter.

Any ideas?

Top navigation bar Sharepoint Foundation 2010 (Meeting Workspace)


Hello everybody,

when additional sites have been created in Sharepoint Services v2 (2003) on a Meeting Workspace site, there was a top navigation with which the user(s) could navigate trough these sites.

Is there any way to get such a navigation in Sharepoint Foundation 2010 on a Meeting Workspace site?

Futhermore I'd like to know how a user defined list is displayed directly on the page where it has been inserted.

Would be nice if someone could help me. Thanks in advance.

With kind regards,
