Site export/import not getting all docs in a library

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 24, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I am using stsadm to move a site form one site collection to another and for some reason a doc library in the restored site is missing docs. Any thoughts?

Issue with Picture Library Slideshow Web Part after export/import of site collection (SP2010)


I recently exported/imported an SP2010 site collection from Dev to Prod. The site collection had about 90 sites, which were all driven from a site template. Once the export/import had taken place, I created an additional 15 sites (in Prod), using the original site template that was created in the Dev environment. Everything seemed to be working just fine, but I found an issue with the Picture Library Slideshow Web Parts (PLSWP) on all the sites that were created in Prod. Basically, I have a Picture Library, and any pictures added to this library show up in the PLSWP. The original 80 site's PLSWP works fine, but the new 15 sites will not show the pictures through the PLSWP (the viewer just shows up blank). Here is the difference in the html output of the picture viewer:

 PLSWP from Dev:

Build an Easy Maintenance Intranet Site: Using Office Docs, File System Object, and OLE Structured S


If you've ever needed to build an easy-to-maintain intranet site, here's a solution based on Microsoft Office documents. Many sites require constant updating of their HTML, but the use of Word documents can simplify the process. This article details the construction of a human resources site that exploits the File System Object (FSO), OLE Structured Storage, and ActiveX capabilities of Word documents. This allows the HR staff to copy their revised or newly created Word files to the site, dynamically generate a list of links to their files, and free IS from the constant recoding of HR updates into new HTML pages.

Search does not find text in Word document stored in document library on a Report Center site within



We have a document library on a site created off of the Report Center site template. We uploaded a Word 2007 document with the word zebra in the text. Using the search bar at the top of the page we selected This list: Our document library and searched for zebra. We received no results.

We tested the same thing on another site (site template Team site) within the same site collection and search worked fine.

Does the Report Center search function differently then the search functionality on the Team site?

Error adding a document library to a site



I am receiving the error "Cannot complete this action.  Please try again"  when trying to add a document library to one of the sites.  This is Sharepoint 2007 SP1.  I seem to be able to do it thru designer but not the web interface.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

sql server 2008 import/export wizard... completely useless??



import/export wizard in 2000 had lots of options.

I could copy databases without a care in the world. Including constraints, stored proc., AND the data, etc.

Now, with v2008, the wizard is dumbed down too much. It's a "stupid" copy function that fails on the first constraint it meets.

"Copy database.." is not an option here: it needs sysadmin on both source and destination server.

Re-adding the constraints manually is not an option either: the database is WAY too large. 

I'm actually hoping there is a temporary bug in the import/export wizard. Each option (and you have THREE...) returns with a new error.

Googling, I found I am not alone:

SSIS Import/Export Wizard: "Unexpected Unrecoverable Error"

For whatever reason, whenever the SSIS Import/Export Wizard needs to display an error message, it throws up "Unexpected Unrecoverable Error" instead. The three buttons - Abort, Retry, and Ignore - all cause the wizard to close. I see some activity in Process Monitor that looks like DTSWizard.exe is probing around for some System.Web assemblies, and not finding them. I'm running 2008 SP1 on Win 7 x86, and I've reinstalled the client tools and Integration Services. Anybody else seen this issue? Should I file a report on Connect?

Document Library "export to spreadsheet" doesn't export all columns in Excel 2003

Hi, we are working with MOSS 2007, Infopath Forms Services, KPIs and Excel 2003. There is a view for some data of the Infopath forms which has to be exported to Excel by our users, but some columns are not exported - without any error message. If I try to export it to Excel 2007 everything is exported as expected, but our users have to use Excel 2003. Any idea?

stsadm export / import custom view / personal view views

Hi, i have to export and import a website with a sharepoint list including all personal views. The personal views are used by the endusers in excel data connections binded to the list.  Loss of personal views during import is not mentioned in the technet discription of export / import command ( http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc766807(office.12).aspx  ) I am actually testing the export / import between two site collections, but always losing the personal views (MOSS 2007 with CU April 2010). This discussion had the same topic http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepointadmin/thread/4e299838-72c2-4f56-8dc3-05ba2a2999d9  but with no definite answer. Please tell me if this is by design or what could cause this behavior. Thanks in advance. Boris Boris Schlotthauer

Unable to create columns in document library after applying custom master page to site

Hi, I have applied a custom master page to a site.There is a document library in it. I am unable to add columns in it or change the default view.Nothing happens when I click on OK butoon after making my changes. However the columns are created/default view is changed when I apply the default master page. Guess I am missing some TagPrefix or sharepoint control on master page.I had solved this problem earlier in this way but don't remeber it now. Can anyone help?

New Document Library in a subsite is inheriting permissions from wrong site

I have a site collection (using the out-of-the-box Business Intelligence site template) called "BI Home". A couple weeks ago I created a bunch of subsites (Finance, Regulatory, Marketing, etc.) all using the BI site template, and then created a Document Library called "Reports" in each one of those subsites. Those are all working as expected. Yesterday I needed to create a new subsite (again, a BI site just off the root site collection) called "Operations". I created the subsite, and then created the "Reports" document library underneath it.  When I went to modify the permissions of the new document library (located here: /Operations/Reports), it said it was inheriting permissions from it's parent: "BI Home".  Why would this be?  Shouldn't the parent be "Operations" ?? All my other sites' "Reports" folders are inheriting permission from their respective parent, but any new sites I create seem to have this issue. Thanks in advance for any insight someone may provide! [SharePoint 2010 RTM on Win2k8R2 using SQL 2008R2 RTM on Win2k8R2]

Import / Export - Workflows

I exported my site, then imported it on a new empty site. Result was unsatisfying by many reasons (which i can overcome postfactum though), but specially - i lost all workflow information.

Site templates and Library Labels

I have been having an issue with labels and a document library... I have a created a document library...docs, with a new site content type ...doc1 If I then save site as a template....works fine. However, the template I have for the content type doc1, has a Quick Part (label) added to it to show the document version number on the document. In order for this to pass from the library to the document, I need to activate labels on the list through the Information Management policy settings on the library. I have done this  and got the template working correctly, updating the version number within the document. But, now if I save site as a template I get the error...   Error Error exporting the list named "Docs" at the URL: Docs Troubleshoot issues with Microsoft SharePoint Foundation. Correlation ID: ea226ba4-0a68-4cfb-9b6f-c557f4ec8ab6 I have tried saving the template at every stage and it is fine up until I turn on the Label option. Any ideas?

export not compatible with import for null smallints

We have one system that exports a table to a pipe-delimited "|" csv file, and another that reads the csv file into a very similar table. One field in the table(s) is a nullable smallint. When the values in the table are null, SSIS exports to the flatfile as an empty field, just two adjacent separators. When I try to read that file back in, it generates an error, can't convert string to smallint. So, what's up with that? I suppose I can fix this one field, but is this going to be a general problem?  Is there a quick fix other than put in my own transformation? Thanks. Josh  --- oh hey, I think I fixed it!  Well, worked around it anyway.  Went to the source in the dataflow, in the advanced editor changed the output column type to DT_I2.  Now it imports as 0 instead of null.  Hmm, is that good enough?
