Beyond Macros: Create Word and Excel Smart Documents with C++ and XML


One of the coolest new parts of Office 2003 is a programmability feature called Smart Documents, which allows developers to augment Word and Excel documents with programmable content and behavior. Typically, examples illustrating Office programmability use Visual Basic or Visual Basic .NET. In this article, the author develops a Smart Document for Excel using C++. He describes the new ISmartDocument interface and shows how to use it to manage a simple task list such as an Excel spreadsheet.

MOSS Content Database has more documents than what's seen on browser

I am not sure how sharepoint internally handles stuff, but this is what I see. I am a SQLDBA and one of my company sharepoint group re-organized a site, by moving some files from a document library to another document library. I think she used the content deployment.

When she see the number of documents in the document library it showed 700 documents. She moved only 50 of them. I went into the database and queried the Docs and DocStreams View and I get the list of all the those documents. I see both the ones that we see on the site as well as something that we do not see on the site.


ad.DirName, ad.LeafName, TimeCreated, ads.size/1024 as [Size(KB)], SetupPath

Can I search Office Documents (Excel, Word etc) in WSS 3.0 without having to install MS Office?



Does WSS 3.0 come with the filters for searching MS Office Documents or do you have to have MS Office installed on WSS 3.0 Server?



Documents becoming "locked for editing" by self, when no other edits are happening


On our SharePoint 2007 SP1 farm, intermittently, when a user opens a Microsoft Office document (usually Excel) for editing by single-clicking its name in IE, the following error dialog mysteriously occurs when Office opens:

File in Use
myfile.xlsm is locked for editing
by 'domainname\yourname'
Open 'Read-Only' or click 'Notify' to open read-only and receive notification
when the document is no longer in use.

The problem is, nobody else is editing this document, and the identified user ('domainname\yourname') is the name of the current user (the person opening the document right now)!

This is not "user error", e.g., the same user editing the file from two different computers, or the file being checked out. This is a real, intermittent problem. If the same user opens the same file again 1 minute later, the problem might be gone, even though nothing changed.

It's almost as if some kind of intermittent race condition is happening, where the document gets locked too early...?

We are completely stumped. Any ideas?

Other details:
- SharePoint servers (1 front-end, 1 query, 1 indexing) are all Windows 2003 Server
- SQL Server 2008 on database server
- Clients are mostly Windows XP

Reading/writing Word documents - keeping formatting


I've done some reading about reading from and writing to a Word doc. The reading from worked without issue:

string strPath = "Test.doc";
FileStream fStream = new FileStream
    (strPath, FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read);
StreamReader sReader = new StreamReader(fStream);
string text = sReader.ReadToEnd();

But of course this is just a string, without any formatting information included. Writing to the document using a StreamWriter worked, but I received errors when opening the document.

I've also read that trying to perform actions on an Office document on a server without the Office products installed on it can result in mayhem. I'm working on a MVC application that will allow users to upload documents to the server, work on them, save their work and email it around. That doesn't specifically require the need to read/write programmatically, but for certain application functions I do need this. Any helpful suggestions are appreciated.

disable browser keys & menu functions

I ran across a few links on making an asp.net app fullscreen with javascript.    But I'd also like to keep users withing my app unless they log out.    How do you disable ctrl-esc, ctrl-c, window, selection & right mouse click?    Are there any other keys you can use to prevent a user from either copying data from a browser window or closing it?     That would also mean eliminating or suppressing the upper right hand minimize & close buttons in browser windows and the file menu.     If the code is specific to internet explorer then I'd also have to check whether their browsing from a firefox browser, unless the code would be the same for both.
