Problems with Exposing Excel contents in SharePoint 2010

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 29, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 
<!-- [if gte mso 10]> <mce:style>

I have an Excel spreadsheet and I want to use it to trigger a work flow ... BUT ... I don't want to just use the creation or modification of it to trigger the work flow ... I want some data in the sheet to trigger it. 

I followed some How-To's and was able to get to the point where I set up a Site Column and associated it to a Custom Content Type (i.e.: my Excel sheet) and when someone creates a new document this is loaded with the ability to manually enter the value in the Document Properties bar that appears.  Great ... but why would I want to manually enter the value again when I have already have it in a cell below.  I thought, OK a little more work to do and I am done.

So, after some research, I learned that I have to  create a named cell range and custom field in my Excel document and then expose that to SharePoint. I was referenced to this article (http://tinyurl.com/29l98rl) and performed the steps as outlined ... and thought, "Great that was easy ... I am done !!"

Well ... that wasn't quite true.  After testing this out I soon realized that the data in the cell was not being populated into the Site Column.  So I went back and double checked it and am pretty sure that I did everything right (

Sharepoint Foundation 2010 problems with Office 2007 ActiveX controls

  
I have a SPF server that I recently upgraded from WSS 3 using the database attach method. The new server configuration is SQL 2008 R2 with SPF 2010 on Windows 2008 64bit SP2. Mostly things are working fairly well, though there have been a few fires to put out. The latest inflamation seems to be centered around ActiveX controls for Office 2007. I'm getting the following message whenever I try to create a new document using the New button: " 'New Document' requires a Microsoft SharePoint Foundation-compatible application and web browser. To add a document to this document library, click the 'Upload Document' button." On the client side, the browser is IE8 on Windows 7 (Windows is 64bit, though the browser is in 32 bit mode.) using Office 2007. I've also had the same problem with systems running XP. In terms of troubleshooting, other activeX related features seem to be working fine. I can open datasheet views, if I click on a document, it will open in the appropriate client. However, I have some libraries where the Word document template opens the document information panel and those will give thhe following message on open: "One or more ActiveX controls could not be displayed because either: 1)Your current security settings prohibit running ActiveX controls on thi page , or 2) You have blocked a publisher of one of the contols. As a result the page mi

Problems with access to external lists in SharePoint 2010

  
Our environment is SharePoint 2010 Enterprise, Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard and SQL server 2008 R2.   We have External lists that access a local database in SharePoint SQL Server. When new lists are added and permissions are given in the SharePoint Central Administration the domain users had to be in the Windows administration group to access the lists.   Recently in the same environment the domain users were removed from Windows Administration user group and could access the external lists.   In another similar test server we found adding the domain users to Windows Administration does not give the new domain users access to External lists.   The inconsistency is the issue. Has anyone seen this issue or provide a possible solution?

SharePoint 2010 Export list Items to Excel, wrong url in iqy file

  
Hi, I have a SharePoint 2010 Environment that uses https://portal.<something>.com. Exporting to Excel of a list uses wrong URL. When I go to the a list, select the list to show the "office ribbon" and then select export to excel, excel will show the error "Excel cannot connect to the SharePoint List". When I take a look at the IQY file that is created it contains the wrong url: http://portal.<something>.com instead of https://portal.<something>.com Changing the URL in the IQY file manualy to https://portal.<something>.com and then opening it will excel is working fine, list data is exported to excel then. Alternate access mapping is configured to use https://portal.<something>.com as default, export to access is working normaly. I already deleted the http://portal.<something>.com alternate access mapping once to see if this fixes the problem. No fix, even not after IISreset or rebooting the server. Where or how is the export to Excel IQY file created and where is it possible to fix the URL it is putting in the IQY file? Grtz, Arjan
