Sharepoint Workspace, name display issue

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 24, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint


I was wondering if anyone else had seen this.  On my Sharepoint site, it properly shows my name associated with the content that I create in the form of Wildes, John.  When I connect my SharePoint Workspace software to the sharepoint sites I wish to work with, all the names have two (2) commas in them, as in  Wildes,, John

Why is this...?

Sharepoint 2010 w/ Webapps, Excel Services Webpart display issue.


I have Sharepoint 2010 installed with WebApps 2010, and can use it to edit documents in IE without any problems at all.  Word and Excel work just fine.

But on MOSS 2007, I could have it display the Excel page as a webpart, that you can click on, and open it anyways.   But no matter what I try in 2010, all I get is the Webpart heading has a link to the file that works, but the contents always reads:

To display a workbook in this Web Part, you must first select the workbook.

To select a workbook, open the tool pane, and then edit the Workbook property.
Click here to open the tool pane.


How can I fix the preview in the webpart?




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'

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
