How do I get the Sharepoint 2007 KPI to use the "Calculation using all list items in the view"

I have a custom SP list that contains a numeric column in the list and the view selected for the KPI. The option to calculate using all items in the view is grayed out.  Sometimes SP will let me create a KPI like this, then I go back to the webpart and the indicator has reverted back to just a simple count of the number of items in the list.  I want to use the "calculate all items" from a numeric column and have my KPI stay that way? Any thoughts?

SharePoint 2010 email enabled list with workflow has incorrect User ID when items are emailed to the

I have set up an approval workflow for a document library that has email enabled. Emails come into the document library fine, however, if an item is emailed to the library the workflow kicks off with the initiator as "System Account" rather than the person who submitted the email. This makes the error of "The e-mail message cannot be sent. Make sure the e-mail has a valid recipient." come up. If someone submits a document directly to the library (by logging into sharepoint and submitting) everything works fine. The person submitting by email is a valid sharepoint user and the profile shows the correct email address. The Created by and Modified by fields show the correct person (rather than System Account), it's only the workflow User ID that shows incorrectly if document is emailed to library. Any help or ideas would be appreciated. Thanks

SharePoint 2010 Export list Items to Excel, wrong url in iqy file

Hi, I have a SharePoint 2010 Environment that uses https://portal.<something>.com. Exporting to Excel of a list uses wrong URL. When I go to the a list, select the list to show the "office ribbon" and then select export to excel, excel will show the error "Excel cannot connect to the SharePoint List". When I take a look at the IQY file that is created it contains the wrong url: http://portal.<something>.com instead of https://portal.<something>.com Changing the URL in the IQY file manualy to https://portal.<something>.com and then opening it will excel is working fine, list data is exported to excel then. Alternate access mapping is configured to use https://portal.<something>.com as default, export to access is working normaly. I already deleted the http://portal.<something>.com alternate access mapping once to see if this fixes the problem. No fix, even not after IISreset or rebooting the server. Where or how is the export to Excel IQY file created and where is it possible to fix the URL it is putting in the IQY file? Grtz, Arjan

I have a table that has some 50,000 records and would love to convert it into a list.   Thanks John JohnSpilker

Opening attachments to list items in SharePoint 2010



We have some sites that use lists with attachments (generally PDFs). When we click on the item and then on the attachment, we only get the option to Save or Cancel. I thought this might be related to the web applications Strict vs. Permissive setting, but it occurs even after switching the web app to permissive file handling. List attachments in Microsoft formats (word, excel) open correctly in the web apps, and PDFs in document libraries correctly show the Open option since switching the web application to permissive. Is there a way for that to affect list attachments as well?

Sharepoint List in a Repeating table

I have a view with a Sharepoint List showing in a repeating table. I have conditional formatting to hide items that should not show based on Line Total.

Line Total = 4

Approver    Min Amount        Max Amount  
Jim                      3                  9
Jack                    1                   7
Sally                   2                    5

Based on this, I need to sort the Approvers based on Max Amount and send an email to them in order of the sort.  Is this possible?


Auto-Populating a table from SharePoint 2007 List


In my form I have a table with 4 columns, the column headers are: Code, Item, Unit, Cap.  I have a SharePoint list which contains all the data with the same 4 columns.  I would like to be able to have the Code field as a drop down list in my form that looks up all Codes in the SharePoint list and once I choose a code, the other 3 fields get automatically populated with the appropriate data for that code. 

I have the drop down list working, it finds all the data from the SharePoint list, I just can't make it populate the other 3 fields.  How do I do that?

Creating Sites/Lists/List Items under Current User Context in SharePoint By Using SPUserToken

Usually we do this by performing the action under RunWithElevatedPrivileges method and updating the listitem using SPListItem.SystemUpdate() method (see here). but this approach has its own flaws like (RunWithElevatedPrivileges will run under system account, we cannot use SystemUpdate for SPSite,SPWeb,SPList, since it runs under system we will "CreatedBy" by as SystemAccount).

Trying to send email using Sharepoint Designer 2007 workflow and email enabled list


I have a a list that recieves email. I have few fields that shows me the originator: "E-Mail From" and "E-Mail Sender".

I am trying to create a workflow that will generate an auto reply to the originator but the SPD fails to recognize the email address in these two fields. It's either truncating part of it or uses the html ( href=mailto:Demo@DemoSomething.com) in the To field.

Thank you,
