Provision DocumentLibrary with Managed Metadata column

Via the SharePoint 2010 UI I've created a DocumentLibrary and added a new column of type Managed Metadata. I've associated a TermSet with this column and all works fine. Now I need to create a deployment package in Visual Studio 2010. It is easy enough to create the Document Library. I've followed the below steps 1. Create empty SharePoint 2010 project 2. Added new Empty Element to the project. In the Elements.xml I have <Field ID="{15712E76-A603-43AB-885E-CE48BD216381}" Type="TaxonomyFieldTypeMulti" Name="DocTags" DisplayName="DocTags" ShowInDisplayForm="TRUE" ShowInEditForm="TRUE" ShowField="Term1033" Required="FALSE" StaticName="DocTagsInternal" Group="NotSure"/> 3. Added ContentType to the project. Added FieldRef elements to the Element.xml 4. Added List Definition From Content Type and associated it with the above Content Type. 5. Created a List Instance of the above List Definition. 6. Build and Deploy. 7. Associate the column with a Term Set. 8. Add Document to the Document Library. I can select a Term from the applicable TermSet, but when I save the document I get: Failed to get value of the "DocTags" column from the "Managed Metadata" field type control.  See details in log. Exception message: Invalid field name. {00000000-0000-0000-000

search on managed metadata column values

I am trying to search on a managed metadata column in a list.  I have the managed metadata as a mapped property (these are automatically set up actually). I have a column frequency (daily, weekly, monthly, yearly) I can enter a search box owstaxIdFrequency=#a132a333-39f1-4737-9ad4-a932482e025f   //this is the taxonomy guid for Daily.  This shows results. How do I search on the word "Daily" in the frequency column?  (I just want to figure it out on a simple search first meaning just using one search box)   I noticed that there are extra maped columns for managed metadata columns (owstaxIdFrequency also has owstaxIdFrequencyx0020Tag, I tried owstaxIdFrequencyx0020Tag="Daily", but it didn't work)

How to filter managed meta data column using page query string?

I have two managed term sets as follows: Articles:Downloads Projects:Downloads I am trying to use a content query web part to filter a list based on the above manged meta data column. I want to filter out only "Articles:Downloads" Scenario 1: When I edit the web part and directly set the filter option with the managed meta data column to "Articles:Downloads" it works fine. When I export the web part, in the .webpart file, the "FilterValue1" property has a value "Downloads|9096e43b-555d-4879-9acc-b4ada9ea9910". Scenario 2: I want the web part to get the filter information from query string [PageQueryString:pageType]. So I tried using these options: a) pageType=Downloads      This works but returns downloads under 'projects' as well. (i want downloads only under 'articles')  b) pageType=Articles:Downloads     Does not work and shows no records c) pageType = Downloads|9096e43b-555d-4879-9acc-b4ada9ea9910     Does not work. (This value is the same as one found in 'FilterValue1' of the static web part). c) pageType = Articles:Downloads|9096e43b-555d-4879-9acc-b4ada9ea9910     Does not work. d) pageType = 9096e43b-555d-4879-9acc-b4ada9ea9910     Does not work.   What am I missing here? Can some one please help?

Errors in the back-end database access module. The managed provider 'Oracle.DataAccess.Client' cou

Hi. I have connected my SSAS in SQL server 2008 to an Oracle database.  I have installed the Oracle ODAC to enable me to set up the Data Source, the Data Source View and the Cube.  Now everything was going fine.  I could connect to the Oracle Database and I could see my tables and pull them into the DSV. But.  When I come to process the Cube it throws these errors.  Why all of a sudden do the connection objects stop working? Errors in the back-end database access module. The managed provider 'Oracle.DataAccess.Client' could not be instantiated. Errors in the high-level relational engine. A connection could not be made to the data source with the DataSourceID of 'DBIBGEORAclients', Name of 'DBIBGEORAclients'. Can anyone help here please? Thanks, David.

Deploying taxonomy term store and managed meta column from development machine to production machine

Hi, In my development environment, I created a taxonomy term store by importing a CSV file. I also created a site column of type "managed meta data" based on that term store. Now, I want to migrate to production environment. What is the best way to do this? When I generate the schema of my site column, it looks like this: <Field Type="TaxonomyFieldTypeMulti"    DisplayName="Article Type"    List="{d8b20e4f-ce12-4def-b59d-d44da2c13234}"    WebId="eef74e7c-a852-4c89-b811-e31b86853641"    ShowField="Path1033"    Required="FALSE"    EnforceUniqueValues="FALSE"    Group="Custom Columns"    ID="{47f78411-65fa-43c9-8cb8-68955aea1256}"    SourceID="{eef74e7c-a852-4c89-b811-e31b86853641}"    StaticName="Article_x0020_Type"    Name="Article_x0020_Type"    Version="4"    Mult="TRUE"    Sortable="FALSE"> <Default></Default> <Customization> <ArrayOfProperty> <Property> <Name>SspId</Name> <Value xmlns:q1="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" p4:type="q1:string" xmlns:p4="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">99d

Errors with calculated columns, the column posts, but doesn't calculate.



I have a custom list that isn't processing calculated columns anymore.

When I post a calculated column I get one of two error messages...either "SQL Server may not be started" or "The value does not fall within the expected range".  I've noticed the sql message before but the changes are made and calculations in the past have worked ok.  Now that the "value" error is cropping up it's quit calculating the columns.

i.e. I open a calculated column, simply have it reference a numeric field (=[MyNumberField]).  When I hit ok I get one of the two error messages.  When I look at the value of the calculated column it's blank.

Any references to articles, etc. would be helpful.  There are 406 columns in this list...

Add managed metadata column to list - access denied + terms not visible in lists


Firstly the following is not a problem for users given "Full Control" (and possibly other permission levels might work) at the web application level in central admin.

For any other user with permissions set at site collection level, even "site owners" (full control) , these problems arise.

  1. When adding managed metadata columns to a new document library list, clicking save results in multiple access denied errors getting logged (as seen using UlsViewer) and an exception is raised (sharepoint error page)
  2. In existing document library lists managed metadata column headings are displayed in list views but the terms text is not displayed.
This problem shows up even if the logged on user is the term set owner.  "Available for tagging" is enabled, submissions policy is closed.
Looking at http://<the-site-domain>/Lists/TaxonomyHiddenList/AllItems.aspx and then checking list permissions I can see that "All Authenticated Users" has Read permission level.
Integrated windows authentication - NTLM + Claims Based Authentication is the only authentication method used. It's an intranet site. 

Thanks in advance for any help.

Managed metadata column not displaying data



We are in process of rolling out our new intranet on SharePoint. Two days away from the launch we have run into a strange problem. We have various custom content types and within that we have custom columns which are managed metadata. The columns are then exposed in various document libraries and users choose appropriate metadata when adding the documents to the library. Everything was working fine, until yesterday all of a sudden we were not able to see any data in the columns which were managed metadata columns. But if we edit the properties of the document we can see the field is populated.

Another strange thing is that if the user has full permission in central admin they can see the metadata in the columns, but anyone else (including site owners) cannot.

Can anyone please shed some light on this and if someone knows how to resolve this?



Managed Metadata column not grouping correctly



I'm trying to group a list by a Managed Metadata column, it works fine with my farm admin/site collection admin user account however i can't get it to work for any other user account. I've tried giving one of the other user accounts term store admin but still no luck. With these user accounts all i get is one group which contains all items regardless of what term is selected for the item. The single group displays as an empty term e.g. it looks something like 'MetaData Column: (80)'. However if you look at individual columns you can see what term has been selected.

If it makes any difference I'm experiencing the issue while using an Enterprise Wiki site, I'm trying to group pages in the pages library by the 'Wiki Categories' column. I've set the field to point to a new term set and disabled multiple entries.

Any ideas?

Possible bug in SP2010 - Managed metadata column and STP document library template


Hello I have a problem with managed metadata on two different servers and would like to ask you to try it.

I assume you have managed metadata service running.

1, Open some document library in some site
2, Create column - managed metadata type and select some termset and set it as required.

3, Upload a document and fill in metadata when you will be asked.

4, Then edit properties and check, that metadata are there.

5, Save this library as template.

6, Deploy document library from this template and try steps 3+4.

My problem is, you can select metadata, but they are not saved. e.g. when you check document properties managed metadata are not there.

Can you confirm this behavior ?
Thank you very much.


P.S.: one more weird thing. If you do metadata filling using office 2010 compatible application. Metadata remain there, but they are not visible in document library properties.

problems with filtering managed metadata column


I like managed metadata in many way, but there´s several things I can´t get "right":

- In a document library I have managed metadata columns. If i filter with one column (say I filter Europe in column Continents) , every other column take´s away unrelevant filtering options (Country column should only show European cuntries) , except the  managed metadata columns, wich show everyting. Why? Can I change that?

- I have a long list of terms in a managed metadata column. When I try to filter that column, I have to press "more" severel times to get the term I want to filter on. Is it posible to see all terms at ones or se more that 20 terms before I have to click on "more"?

Thanks for helping me,

Errors in the OLAP storage engine: The attribute key cannot be found: Table: table_name, Column: col


I get this error on occasion while processing (full) the OLAP database, and I know that the value 822518 is part of my dimension table refered by the fact table.  I usually just re-process (full) the OLAP database and don't get the error anymore.  Is this a problem with the order in which the objects are processed?  If so, how can I change that?

Cannot copy the value of a managed metadata column from one list to another


I have a problem when trying to copy a value of a managed metadata column from one list to another by a Sharepoint Designer (SPD) Workflow

I have two lists. "Locations" and "Employees". "Locations" has a Content Type integrated that has a Site Column of the type managed metadata named "Geographic Location". This Managed Metadata column describes the geographic location from continent down to the city name. I also have a Content Type for the "Employee" list. This one contains a lookup column "Location Abbreviation" on the title column of the "Locations" list and the same managed metadata column "Geographic Location". Now my Workflow is created to work with the Content Type "Employee" and goes like this:

Set current item:Geographic Location to Locations:Geographic Location (where Current Item:Location Abbreviation equals Locations:Location Abbreviation (Lookup Value (As Text)))

But the workflow always reports "Error occured". The message is:

"The workflow could not update the item, possibly because one or more columns for the item require a different type of information."

But is is very unlikely that this message is useful as both columns use the same Site Column. Do you have any Ideas?
