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.      

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?

SPD workflow doesn't send email to user in list when automatically started

Hi all,

My first post here and I hope someone out there could kindly help. I recently found out a strange issue with my SPD workflow. Basically, it couldn't send out email if (1) the recipient resides in the list and (2) the workflow is automatically started.

For example, I have a list with a "user" field. A workflow first "Send an email" to this user, and then "Collect data from a user" from this user. If the workflow is set to start automatically, then this user gets no email. Tasks list does contain a task, but the "Assigned To" field of the task is empty. This is the case no matter if the user field is of type "Single line of text" or "Person or Group".

Everything's fine if I manually start the workflow. And everything's fine if the user is directly spelled out (jay@company.com) in the "Send an email" and "Collect data from a user" actions instead of retrieved from the list. Either case the user would get two emails as expected, and the "Assigned To" field would display the user name properly.

I looked into the log but didn't find anything special. As you can imagine, this is breaking a lot of our workflows and making SPD workflow look very bad. It's just not

Debugger.Break() kills devenv process


Does it only happen to me or is it a bug?

Just insert a call to [c#]Debugger.Break();[/c#] into a property getter
which gets referenced from xaml by [code=xaml]{x:Static

and try the open that xaml file again.


Solution for assigning task to users in a list in a cycle process



I am having an issue developing the workflow for the following requirement.  

I am having a list of which contains of 6 employees and a workflow which is running on another list. the process is to find a employee from this user list to attend a meeting on requested date which is taken from the request raised in the main list which actually triggers the main workflow.

I have to assign a approval task to employee who is next to the employee who approved the previous task created for the previous request in the list. if he rejects then i have to assign the task to next employee and keeping on collecting the data from user until the due date, if it reaches the last employee then it has the assign the task to first employee and if everyone completed the tasks by rejecting then i have to update list item in the main list. exactly assigning the tasks until someone approves. if approved then it will update a field in the main list and workflow stops. 

if two requests have been raised simultaneously, do i get any workflow errors due to overlapping if we depend and use any custom status field for workflow to check and act according to it.



TFS approval process for 'Custom List'


I created 'Custom List' at TFS Sharepoint portal and i want to attach workflow to approve the created item. Can someone pls suggest me

1. Is there any available workflow template to download and attached to Custom List.

2. The approval process is 2 step.

    2.1. User creates or initiates the form.

    2.2. Supervisor must approve or reject the form.

    2.3. If Supervisor approved, Manager has to approve or reject the form.


I appreciate if someone can suggest me for the workflow template or guide to build the code.




InfoPath Calculated Field doesn't Post to SharePoint List when form is submitted


I have a nice InfoPath form that includes a calculated total field.  That works great.   The form is published to a SharePoint list and when users of the form Submit the form to the list the form information neatly populates to the list.   Well, all of the fields populate to the list except for the calculated total field, that one is just blank.  Naturally, I've noodled around to figure out why and therefore I'm here now asking for guidance.   What should I be focusing on to resolve this issue?


Group By With Collapse="TRUE" doesn't show list item.


I created a SharePoint Page.  I then inserted an XsltListViewWebPart web part via SharePoint Designer 2010.  I then modified the CAML to include a couple of filters.  I then added a start date and end date parameter.  Then I saved my page and went into SharePoint.  I added two date filters (start date and end date) and I connected them to the  XsltListViewWebPart web part.  Then I selected a start date and end date and the list is correctly filtered.  The list is grouped by district and location.  However, when I expand the district and then I expand the location, it says "Loading...." but then it never loads anything.  If I change it to Collapse="FALSE" everything works fine???  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

SharePoint 2010 - Photo Displays in MySite - Photo Doesn't Display in Contact List


MySite is up and running fine.  I am adding photos through Central Administration > Manage User Profiles.  All photos are syncing and showing up in contact lists whenever someone is added to a "Person or Group" Name (with picture) column. 

I recently added someone, uploaded their photo.  It syncs fine with AD, can see it in the thumbnailPhoto attribute for this user.  I looked in the UserProfile_Full.PictureURL column in the Profile DB.  It is there as well (http://sharepoint:80/my/User Photos/Profile Pictures/DOMAIN_USERNAME_MThumb.jpg).  The photo refuses to display in the contact list. 

This is only happening for one user.  Any ideas?

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.


ASP.NET Architecture - ASP.NET Worker Process - HTTP Pipleline - Http Modules and Handlers

"ASP.NET is a powerful platform for building Web applications, that provides a tremendous amount of flexibility and power for building just about any kind of Web application. Most people are familiar only with the high level frameworks like WebForms and WebServices which sit at the very top level of the ASP.NET hierarchy. In this article I'll describe the lower level aspects of ASP.NET and explain how requests move from Web Server to the ASP.NET runtime and then through the ASP.NET Http Pipeline to process requests.

Ready made List Types provided by SharePoint

SharePoint provides some out of the box List Types. Some of the most used ready made list types that SharePoint provides currently are listed below:

Export SharePoint List to Excel Spreadsheet Programmatically using C#

In SharePoint applications, Custom Lists are used to store business data and Document Libraries to store the documents. But for data manupulation and analysis, Microsoft Excel provides very rich features as compared to SharePoint Lists. That's why people still loves to work on Microsoft Excel Sheets.
