Sharepoint Designer restore issue or perhaps BPOS permissions issue

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Trying to use Sharepoint Designer 2007 SP2 to backup and restore site to BPOS. Backup works fine, restore uploads all .cmp files and then comes with an error "Operator does not have web administrator access to import location".

Any ideas ?

Sharepoint Designer issue "could not deserialize object"?

Hi there, I'm relatively new to Sharepoint in general but I've got an install of Sharepoint Foundation and I'm working my way through the book "Sharepoint 2010 Development." At any rate, I'm trying to create a workflow in Visio 2010 and then export that workflow into Sharepoint Designer 2010. However, when I try to import the .vwi file into Designer, I get a "Could not deserialize object. The type 'Microsoft.Office.Workflow.Actions.ApprovalTaskProcess' could not be resolved." This, of course, is because in Visio I have a Start Approval Process object.  Is this particular workflow item not available for Sharepoint Foundation? Does anyone have any idea why I'm getting this error? Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks, Jearod

Sharepoint Designer 2010 - Collect Data from User Issue


I am currently running Sharepoint 2010 Foundation and Sharepoint Designer 2010

I am creating a custom workflow where I am asking 1 user for input using collect data from user.  Following this I am asking a different user the same question using another collect data from user.

Since these creates 2 tasks (1 for each user) I wanted to store the information in the same column, but I seem unable to do so.  Each collect data from user seems to create it's own column even if you name both the same (you end up with 2 columns with the same name but different column id's).

Is there a way to point them both to the same column?  Is there a better way to do this?


More the less I am asking the both persons a yes/no question.  in my workflow if they both say yes I send an e-mail but wanted to have only 1 column in the vew to see the results on the tasks.

SharePoint designer program issue

I have a custom dataFormWebpart with filtering enabled on my page with SharePoint Designer.

When I save my code file, SharePoint designer adds empty lines in my code. My code file gets larger and it crashes when the size reaches really high. Right now, I find those empty lines periodically (maybe after 10 times of saving) and delete them before my code file becomes too large and crash. Is this a bug?

SharePoint Moss2007 - Permissions for Issue Tracker. Want users to Edit but not Delete


I have a issue tracker list setup and I've got custom permission group which is basically the same as the standard Contribute group except with Delete removed. However using this custom group users don't get the Edit button on the List Items to then be able to go in and change. When I add the delete permission to the group they can then go in - but can then obviously delete which I don't want them to be able to do.

Anyone got a solution for this?


Outlook 2010 / Sharepoint authenthication issue


Hi all,

I'm using Outlook 2010 on Windows 7 64bit.

My company uses a hosted Sharepoint server (I guess it's Sharepoint 2010). There's a team calendar, which I would like to connect to my Outlook 2010. Linking it to Outlook works fine until it tries to update the calendar with the Sharepoint server. I shows the following error:

Error (0x80070005) when running the task "SharePoint": "You are not authorized to view the SharePoint list (team calendar). Contact the administrator of SharePoint site. HTTP 401."

So this tells me, I'm not authorized to connect - which is quite clear because Outlook never asked my for any username or password.

Funny thing is when I try to add an internet calendar (Right mouse click on calendars, Add calendar, Internet calendar) and use the url of the sharepoint list, it asks me for username and password, but then fails to add the calendar, as it isn't a webcal (which is OK).

BUT: As Outlook at this moment has the username and password, the exisiting Sharepoint calendar synchronizes correctly. This works until Outlook is being restarted.

Does anyone have an idea why I'm not asked for any authentication? Maybe there's some setting I haven't found yet? It works with trying to add the webcal any time when I start Outlook, but t

sharepoint 2007 indexing issue


when we do incremental crawl, the items in index start decreasing and the error count remains the same. so it is hard to find what is causing the index items to reduce. can anyone help please. i had to pause the active crawl because of this index item decrease.

I have checked the following:

1) there is no space issue

2) no credential issue

What I found a bit fishy is that:

1) in the log, i got ->

a)get REGKEY_FLTRDMN_MS_TO_IDLE, using default - _File:\office\source\search\search\gather\fltrdmn\fltrdaemon.cxx Line:323

b) Server Office Server Shared Services 6pls Medium Cache blocked for shared object '1dd1db1d-8a07-4e27-9249-b7d328818fa2' of type 'Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration.SearchSharedApplication'

Please help.

Permissions issue for custom web service in the _vti_bin folder.

Hello, I have created a custom ASMX webservice that returns in JSON format so that I can call the data from JQuery on SharePoint page content.  I placed it in the ISAPI (_vti_bin) folder and it works just fine when I go directly to the web service and call it the way JQuery calls it: /_vti_bin/ServiceabilityCheck.asmx/GetSystemIDByZIPCode?ipaddress= Which returns: <string>{"SystemID":"5"}</string> When I try to call it from the SharePoint site with JQuery, it errors out and gives an unspecified error.  Fiddler shows {"Message":"Authentication failed.","StackTrace":null,"ExceptionType":"System.InvalidOperationException"} as the response from the web service call. When I have the webservice on an IIS web app outside of SharePoint, it works fine.  I have anonymous access enabled on the SharePoint site, why would it give me this error?John Chapman | Blog: http://www.johnchapman.name
