Unable to sort RSS feed in Web Part or SP Designer 2007

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 24, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I have an RSS Moss 2007 webpart to display feeds from http://www.fujitsu.com/uk/news/pr/uk-news-pr-rss.rss but the feed is coming in reverse date order. In Sharepoint designer when I try to sort by pubDate (descending), the sort order is arbitrary and it appears that the feed is being limited in size with the latest post being some 3 years ago.

Any help would be appreciated.

Unable to open pdf from document library MOSS 2007


When I click on a pdf document uploaded in a document library it comes up with a blank page. 

I guess it's trying to open pdf on the browser. I turned off "Display PDF in browser " option in Adobe Preferences, but it doesn't help, same issue.

I tried other browsers too, it's the same issue.

I am able to open all other pdf files local to my machine fine.

I am using IE 8 on my machine (Windows 7) and the Sharepoint server is MOSS 2007.



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,


How to Establish a Remote Web Site Connection in SharePoint Designer 2007


I am modifying a SharePoint site and so far so good.  Some of the objects were created using Visual Studio 2008 (C#).  I was able to modify these objects and implement them on the targete machine without issue.  The final step is to implement the ASPX pages that were modified using SharePoint Designer 2007.  These are aspx pages that are used to modify items in lists.  All the pages involved in this upgrade are customized.  I need to upgrade the target site with the modified version of these pages.  My intent is to copy the code from the page in the source site and past it into the same page on the target site.  I tried using the Remote Web Site connection tool in SharePoint Designer 2007 but received the following error message:

"Unable to open 'https://(site address)'.  Server Error:  Could not find a Web server at 'website'.  Please check to make sure that the Web server name is valid and your proxy settings are set correctly.  If you are sure that everything is correct, the Web server may be temporarily out of service."

I am not sure how to first check to see if the Web Server is temporarily out of service.  I would appreciate your input on how to verify this.

Problem with SharePoint Designer 2007 and Custom List Forms


I created several forms (Create/Edit/View) for a SharePoint list, using Custom List Forms.  I'm using Content Types in the list to ensure that each item only has the necessary fields.  When I created the ASPX forms, and inserted the Custom List Forms, I selected the correct Content Type, and I got the right fields inserted in the form.

Now, for some reason I can't identify, every time I create a new form, and insert a Custom List Form, SPD is bringing ALL fields from the list, instead of just bringing the fields included in the selected Content Type.

I have tried many different things to solve the problem, including creating new lists/content types/forms, etc. but SPD is doing the same thing all the time.

Can somebody tell me what may have gone wrong in SPD or MOSS?


Data form web part not displaying - Unable to display this Web Part. ....



I am designing a data form - adding some formatting etc.  I am able to see the webpart correctly in SPD split view, but when I trying to preview it, it gives me the following error

Unable to display this Web Part. To troubleshoot the problem, open this Web page in a Windows SharePoint Services-compatible HTML editor such as Microsoft Office SharePoint Designer. If the problem persists, contact your Web server administrator.
ANy help would be welcome, I have spent a lot of time on this page and don't want to do it again.  THere are a lot of fields and it's a tedious process to move them to the correct location.  I am at my wits end, I am not sure how to debug this!!


Unable to read my RSS feed with XmlReader



I have an RSS-feed page, which I developed with SyndicationFeed class. The page seems to work, and if I type the url into a browser, a page similar to this opens up: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/rss/default.aspx

However, I'm unable to read the feed into an XmlReader object. Let's say my rss page is "http://mysite/rss.aspx", and my code in the rss-retriever side is something like this:

XmlReader reader = XmlReader.Create("http://mysite/rss.aspx");

XmlDocument doc = new XmlDocument();


I get an error on doc.Load(reader) method:

For security reasons DTD is prohibited in this XML document. To enable DTD processing set the ProhibitDtd property on XmlReaderSettings to false and pass the settings into XmlReader.Create method

I've tried to set the ProhibitDtd to false, but then I get some other error.

If I put something like this, I can save the xml dat into a file, and I can see that it's just like it should be:

XmlReader reader = XmlReader.Create("http://mysite/rss.aspx");

SyndicationFeed feed = new SyndicationFeed();
