Creating a new document in Document Library from custom menu item (in the ECB)

Hello! I created a custom menu item in the ECB for a document library. I'd like for this to create a new document from this menu item. Additionally, I'd like to create a workflow where the Title of the document from which the menu action originates is inserted into a custom textfield in the new document that is created. Is this possible using SharePoint Designer?

Item/Document permissions affect Library/List permissions

When I change the permissions on a item/document in a library/list the permissions are also changed on the library/list even though I stopped inheritance.  When I change the permissions on the library/list it also changes permissions on items/documents in that list even if inheritance is removed.

Using Workflow to create an InfoPath item in a Forms Library

Hi Experts: Here is my situation: I have a MOSS 2007 server with list A (regular sharepoint list) and List B (InfoPath form library with a published form) This is what I am trying to accomplish using SharePoint Designer: List A is just a basic list User changes a column in list A to a specific value A new form needs to be added to the forms library B SharePoint designer Workflow will not create a valid xml file in the List B forms library. It just creates an invalid file based on the .xsn file template. Does anyone have any experience creating a valid xml form in a forms library using SharePoint Designer workflow? I can't migrate to 2010 so that is not an option. Thanks for all your advise.

how to create a doc library item using web service

Hi, I think this is a common question, but I coulnd't come up with anything at this point. I'd like to create an item in a document library using SP web service. - no uploading a file. I have created an item using ../copy.asmx web service. Using the WS function(copyWebService.CopyIntoItems function), it seems suitable to create an item AND at the same time to upload a file. I don't think I can just create an item with this function. How do i just create an item? any reply is appreciated.  

Use VS to copy an item from 2010 library to a 2007 library?

In short: Is it possible to use Visual Studio to copy a Document Library item from a 2010 environment to a 2007 environment? In long: We are going to be upgrading our Sharepoint servers from 2007 to 2010, but we currently have custom workflows where we copy items from one server to another.  The destination server cannot be upgrated to 2010 for at least 2 years.  I'm really hoping this is possible, otherwise it could get real ugly around here.  

Multiline text field in document library and item update from Word trouble

Hi I have faced a bit of odd problem. Here is the scenario: I have document library with text columns (multiple lines of text) that are set to unlimited length. I have a workflow that runs with Word documents (.docx) that stores information in XML to this field. Everything works perfectly until document is edited in Word and saved back to document library. After Word saves my document in document library, the multiline text field is "cutted", only 7 rows of text is saved to my field. I have tried hiding my text field, making it sealed or readonly, but still Word breaks my field. Funniest thing is that when editing document in Word, this field should not have any changes (meaning that I dont show my "long text field" in document information panel back in Word). I have tried also creating event handler to handle itemupdating event in document library where I switch spweb.parserenabled property to false and in itemupdated event I switch it back on. Also I have tried to remove all line changes from XML with no luck. This XML saving to long text field works perfectly with many other places but in this one environment this does not seem to work :( I am looking forward to any suggestions what to try next. I have been wondering about using the eventhandlers and trying to "protect" my text field with some logic but that is still just a thought.   T

New Item Added to List/Library trigers Alert to non-AD Security Group

I am trying to implement an alert when a new item is added to a list. Idealy this alert would be sent to either a SharePoint Group or a AD Distribution Group. I do not have access/authroization to create security groups. The research I have found so far tells me that I can only add AD users and AD mail-enabled security groups through the alert GUI. My questions is first is this a valid finding? Second, if I create a custom workflow can I have the workflow triger on new item added and have it send a notification to the specified SharePoint/Distribution group? Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Is it possible to dynamically create Name (file name) when item saved to Doc Library?

Even though users have been instructed on a naming convention for saving documents to a library after creating a new one  from the library template, they forget or don't understand.  I would like to have the Name column (which is taken from the file name that it is saved as)  in the Document Library be a concatenation of other document meta data elements.  Is this possible?  In other words, is it possible for me to dynamically save the document with the correct file name as a Workflow action (in a Designer created workflow)?  I tried it, but without success.

Workflow that moves item from one library to another, with condition: 1 year old.


I have Sharepoint 2007, and i now want to make a workflow that moves one year old item from one library to another, so that the old documents do not show in search. I have made the workflow, but i cannot see how i can set the condition that IF the item is older that ONE YEAR, it will be moved to another library.

I want to do this so that I can keep my old news-item not showing in search results.

If someone have other suggestion (besides workflow) to keep old items out from search results, I would appreciate tips :)



Document Library and Data View - New Item


I want to add a Data View WebPart to upload a new document to a SharePoint Document Library.

What I'm aiming to do is to have a list item displayed on a page and then upload related files to a document library rather as list item "attachments".  So the user would come on to the page, see the list item and have an upload box underneath with all the document's metadata next to the upload  Can this be done using SPD?

I've had a quick look around and I'm suspecting the answer to this is "NO" but I thought I'd ask anyway.

(I'm thinking custom webpart)

Unique Permission on every individual item in a SharePoint Form Library can result in very slow perf


Hi All,

I just want to know that can sharePoint performance become slow by assigning unique permission on every individual item ? I have a form library in which there are hundreds of items and every item has unique permissions.

FYI: I read the following blogs and they are of the opinion that SharePoint performance can become horribly slow by assigning unique permissions

URL 1: http://sharepointbergen.blogspot.com/2008/09/sharepoint-2007-item-level-security.html

URL 2: http://weblogs.asp.net/erobillard/archive/2008/09/11/sharepoint-security-hard-limits-and-recommended-practices.aspx

Any help in this regard will be greatly appreciated..

Trying to create a unique workflow for every item in a library.

Hi all,

I'm trying to create a seperate collect feedback, collect approval, and send notification upon approval workflow for every document in a document library (you can imagine my terror when this was assigned).

I'm having trouble creating a seperate workflow for each document in a library.  Initially I started by creating a workflow in SPD that is triggered when an item is changed in the library and then looks for the title of the document to match it's parameter.  However, I was having a problem with the emails.  I would collect feedback, output a variable, but when I put that variable into an email body, all I would get was a number in the email.  But that's another issue for another thread I suppose. 

I also tried creating a different content type for each document.  However, for some reason the first content type I created appears in the drop down menu when I try to change a documents properties, but not the rest of the content types I created.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.
