Unable to open pdf from document library MOSS 2007


When I click on a pdf document uploaded in a document library it comes up with a blank page. 

I guess it's trying to open pdf on the browser. I turned off "Display PDF in browser " option in Adobe Preferences, but it doesn't help, same issue.

I tried other browsers too, it's the same issue.

I am able to open all other pdf files local to my machine fine.

I am using IE 8 on my machine (Windows 7) and the Sharepoint server is MOSS 2007.



Sharepoint 2007 Document Search and Highlight in Office 2007 and PDF


We will be implementing Document Search (DOC, DOCX, PDF, TIFF, PPT, PPTX, XLS, XLSX) for one of our customers. We were evaluating a few MOSS 2007 based solutions, and happened to visit your site.  What we intend to achieve are the following functionalities:


a.       User should be able to search through 1000s of documents which are in a Sharepoint Document Library

b.      The documents could be in English, International Languages.

c.       Each document is 70-100 pages, and therefore it is important that the Search Results show the relevant pages on which the Search Text appears (Get Highlighted) within each document . Clicking on the link will take the user to the right page.

d.      The additional requirement is Synonym search. So, I can search for

Seperate out the Document Libraries to individual Sites in MOSS 2007

We are using the MOSS 2007 with SP2. We are having three different Document Libraries for three different projects under same site. We have the requirement to migrate each library to shift to the individual sites. We need to do this with all the content, settings and and the permissions. It's fine to migrate the database and settings individually i.e. content database seperately and site settings seperately. Is anyone have this kind of migration?

People search in MOSS 2007




I don’t know much about the search settings in SharePoint. I have a requirement like I want to enable the people search for one of the SharePoint site which was created by someone else.


I know that people search will be activated by default if we choose the site template as collaboration portal, but in this case I am not sure about the template they used to create. By the way is there any way to find out which site template they used to create the site; that is apart.


What are the settings required to enable the people search in MOSS 2007.  

Search returns nothing, crawler works fine(i believe) in MOSS 2007



i did some research in the forum before posting, but i can't seem to find a real solution for my problem, even though there are many threads discussing similar or maybe even the same problem. I will describe the problem in short, and then if someone can help me out and needs more info i can give more details etc.

So, i am new in my enterprise, and also to "real" informatics (recently graduated master 2) and i am supposed to administer the internal IT of the company. The SharePoint expert of my company just changed job, so i was kinda hired to replace him. The problem is, i have limited experience with SharePoint, just had my 70-630 yesterday but i am no expert. 

The problem with our SharePoint is that the search won't work(doh!). The crawler is working fine, we get things indexed etc, but then searches return nothing. I tried playing with scopes but as far as i can see, it's not that. What's weird is that apparently the search worked fine at some point in the past, then just mysteriously stopped. I discussed with the ex-admin and we tried to fix it, but we couldn't get it working.


I am kinda stuck, don't know where to look and which settings i need to check, on what le

MOSS 2007 Strange Problem with edit forms, content types and document library columns


I'm having a strange problem and have not been able to track down any useful answers over google.

I inherited a SharePoint site that I am now making some changes to.

I am having problems with one document library.  We had custom edit forms on this document library, which I was finding a pain to maintain so I reset them back to the site definition.  This edit form now shows only those fields that are associated with the Document content type (the only content type - I've deleted the others) on the document library.  There are other columns on this document library that are NOT associated with the content type that I would like to show on the edit form but they are not available when I try to add them to the content type via Settings > Document Content Type > Add from existing site or list columns.  The select columns from drop down is set to List Columns.  The Additional Authors column is just not there.

I CAN see this field on the all items view for the document library, it is there and populated with data.

Setting the Allow Managed content types radio button to NO does not have any impact on which fields are visible on the form- I still see those same fields that have been associated with the Document content type.

Has anyone else seen this or does anyone have any thoughts??

How can I add custom Search Paging webpart in the Search results page in MOSS 2007


I have created a Basic webpart page and added Content editor webpart to extend the functionality of Advanced Search webpart. This is working fine. Also added OOB Search Paging webpart int his page. But when the number of items returned by the Search Core results webpart exceeds the Page size (10) then when I click on the next link in the Paging webpart then all results are lost and retrieved from All Sites scope. Is there any way to hook into the Search paging webpart.?

Please note that in the Content Editor webpart I have used custom search scope.

I need help with regard to this.

Thanks in advance!.

How to implement robust Document Management application using MOSS 2007


I want to implement an efficient document management system using MOSS 2007.

I know Sharepoint 2007 offers OOB document management capabilties but I am facing strong challenge in uploading large files(500-1GB file size) into document library. If I have to avoid direct storing of files in document library then pointer/link to files in physical drives is possible but in that case I will not be able to leverage the full capabilities of sharepoint.

Need some views or directions in regard to this. Any link to custom solution/source code is most welcome.

Thanks in advance.
