Unique text value in databse column


Hi Everyone!

I know this is probably a very basic question but how do I keep a column's text values unique in SQL server (ie for a unique username)?  The column is not an integer it's varchar(50), and it's not the primary key but I could make it the primary key if recommended.

The front end could handle it;  where the user would enter text, it's validated, then a query is done to see if that username is available.  If so, then user can decide to choose it and an insert is done, if not they pick a new username and process repeats.  With this approach, the responsibility of keeping the value unique solely rests on the front end, nothing on the database side.

Is this the correct way to handle this? 

Thank you!

How to read a column of a sharepoint list to a text string field of infopath form?

My infopath form used to read these email addresses from a web service and web.config file. Now i would like to get these user email addresses from a contact list in a sharepoint server. I am trying to do this without writing any codes. Here is what i have done so far: 1. Adding a new "data connection to receive data from SharePoint library or List" where i selected Email Address column of the contact list. 2. I added a new Text Field and define a new rule with "Query using a data connection" defined above. When i try to access the newly created Text field above it always return empty as if the Query attached to it did not executed at all. What did i do wrong? Is there a better way? Thank you in advance for your help.

Text Calculation - Removing all text after space

I have a list with workflows that was created for one of our clients that allows them to enter some information and the workflow takes care of sending emails to the necessary recipients as well as notifying the person the task is assigned to when it has reached a certain status or age. The "agent name" colum contains the agent's first and last name (ie John Smith).  I am wondering if there is a way that in the workflow, when an email is generated, if I am able to remove the last name using some sort of text calculation.  The reason I would like to try and do it this way if possible is that if I add the Columns Agent First Name and Agent Last Name, the current Agent Name colum that is being used to generate the agent's name in the email will now not be the correct column to use for this information and the 100s of entries already in the lists will not send out emails properly. Does anyone have a suggestion for this, or know some sort of text calculation formula that I can use to remove the last name from the lookup in the email?

Adding starting text to a column field

I am wanting to know if there is a way you can add starting text within a field that displays within a page layout?  I have a page layout that has a field (column) called 'page summary'. What I want to do is when a content managers creates a new page based on that page layout, the text "This page contains a public notice" is automatically inserted in the page summary field and the content manager can continue typing or highlight the text and remove it. Kind of like adding a base 'Text Value' to the field (column).  I want to be able to do it without having to do custom code though.

Sharepoint Calendar export to Outlook but can only view the Title column

I have created a Calendar in Sharepoint for booking out company vehicles. The fields I have created are: Vehicle (Choice), Driver (User/Group), Start & End Times, Title (text), DisplayField (Calculated text based on Vehicle + Title...... it would be nice to include Driver but it seems Sharepoint cannot handle the User/Group datatype in a calculated field.....but I digress). I use the DisplayField calculated field in my default calendar view in Sharepoint. All is good at this point. When one connects it to Outlook (via the Action menu in Sharepoint) the calendar is added but all the entries show only the Title field. If I double click on an entry, only the title field appears - the Vehicle and Driver values are missing. When I try to create a new entry - only the Title field (plus other default Outlook fields) are available. So: How can one display a value other than Title by default, and how can I display the other columns when looking at the event detail?

How to pass page column value to data view parameters

Hi All, I have a page library with custom column, lets call it "FormCourseId". On that page I have data view which retrieves data from custom list filtered by page column "FormCourseId". In parameter wizard creates the following tag <ParameterBinding Name="ListCourseId" Location="Form(FormCourseId)" DefaultValue=""/> Then I try to use that parameter in XSLT of data view as a filter creteria.  <xsl:param name="CourseId"></xsl:param> It does not work for me. If I change data view parameter source from Form to Query String and pass parameter as url one it works fine. What is wrong with page column parameter binding? May be if FormCourseId column is not presented in form layout as a field(I do not need to show that field in user form of the page) it could not be treated as form parameter?

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?

Hello,If you build a DD site using a database that has a varchar() field of length more than about 20, then when you look at the grid view for the table, you only see the first 20 or so characters in the field.Can I change this to show more?
