Changing the E-Mail Subject field in a Document Library

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 29, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I am trying to use SharePoint Manager 2007 to change the Sealed attribute of the item to False, so that I can edit the E-Mail Subject field of items in an email enable library.  When I select False I get the error: "Operation is not valid due to the current state of the object.". 

Is there another way that I can change this attribute to False?

Unable to filter the "E-mail To" field in email enabled document library

Hi, We have setup a few email enabled docuement libraries to store emails relating to project work. Is there a way to make the "E-mail To" field in the library be filtered? It is greyed out and doesnt give you the option. The "E-mail From" and "E-mail Subject" are able to have a filter applied to them but for some reason the "E-mail To" field wont let you filter the content. The probelm is that there are over 500 files in the library and the easiest way to find messages is to be able ot filter this column in the library if it is at all possible.

How can I get search to work for a Custom Document Library with a few third-party field types?

Hi, Using WSS 3.0 with SQL Server 2008 for Workgroups I have created a Custom Document Library (2,462 files - copied from folder into Explorer view and then renamed using Batch Update in web services i.e. "BaseName" field) - basically it uses three fields that are of "Filtered Lookup" (a field type from a third party). The document library is included in the search (i.e. Advanced Settings), but it displays none of the files - bascially not included in search at all with all testing I have done. I created a new Document Library called "Test" and uploaded a document and it is included in the search. Is there any way I can debug this. Is there a log file? Is there something in the Search Database that might help? Your help would be really appreciated as this is my last issue - and its soooo important to the deliverable. Thanks. John.

Rename a document in Doc Library without changing the modified by

How do I rename the document in the document library without changing the modifed by and no increment of version? My Document Library setting is Major Version and CheckOut is set to No. I'm using SPSecurity.RunWithElevatedPrivileges to rename the document I had tested to checkout then checkin but there is an increment in version. Here is a sample code that will rename the filename but the modified by changed to System Account. SPSecurity.RunWithElevatedPrivileges(new SPSecurity.CodeToRunElevated(delegate() { using (SPSite elevatedSite = new SPSite(SPContext.Current.Site.ID)) { using (SPWeb elevatedWeb = elevatedSite.OpenWeb(SPContext.Current.Site.RootWeb.ID)) { elevatedWeb.AllowUnsafeUpdates = true; SPList list = elevatedWeb.Lists["Library1"]; SPListItem item = list.GetItemById(documentID); if (updateFilename) item["Name"] = filename; item.SystemUpdate(); } } })); Is there anyone out there who can help? Thanks in advanced.

Multiline text field in document library and item update from Word trouble

Hi I have faced a bit of odd problem. Here is the scenario: I have document library with text columns (multiple lines of text) that are set to unlimited length. I have a workflow that runs with Word documents (.docx) that stores information in XML to this field. Everything works perfectly until document is edited in Word and saved back to document library. After Word saves my document in document library, the multiline text field is "cutted", only 7 rows of text is saved to my field. I have tried hiding my text field, making it sealed or readonly, but still Word breaks my field. Funniest thing is that when editing document in Word, this field should not have any changes (meaning that I dont show my "long text field" in document information panel back in Word). I have tried also creating event handler to handle itemupdating event in document library where I switch spweb.parserenabled property to false and in itemupdated event I switch it back on. Also I have tried to remove all line changes from XML with no luck. This XML saving to long text field works perfectly with many other places but in this one environment this does not seem to work :( I am looking forward to any suggestions what to try next. I have been wondering about using the eventhandlers and trying to "protect" my text field with some logic but that is still just a thought.   T

Required Field in Document Library

Say in a document library, you have custom required field and during file upload you didn't enter values for the required field. Now if you try to checkin the file from library item listing view, an runtime exception is thrown "You must fill out all required properties before checking in this document". In that case the expected behavior would be to show the edit window asking user to enter values for required fields. The error is reported on the thread here . The error is described more elaborately in this blog . Has anyone experienced the error before? Is it already reported issue?   Thanks, Sohel Rana http://ranaictiu-technicalblog.blogspot.com

Showing the SPBuiltInFieldId.ItemChildCount Field in a Document Library View?


Is it possible to display the number of items contained within a sub-folder within a document library?  When the user opens up the document library, he would like to see next to any sub-folder the number of items contained in that subfolder without having to navigate into it.

In the MSDN documentation there is a built-in field, SPBuiltInFieldId.ItemChildCount,where the number of items is kept.  Can this field be used to accomplish this requirement?  If so, is there any information on using the SharePoint object model on how to expose it?  It is not accessible from the Document Library Settings.

Upload a File to a SharePoint Document Library - Part I

The following helper class demonstrates a few techniques that allow documents to be uploaded to a SharePoint document library programmatically without using the API or a custom web service. You don't need to specify a document library name, and it will create any folders specified in the URL as required. File meta data will be updated if any properties are passed.

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.



Can I open the "new" menu in a SharePoint Document Library using Dragon NaturallySpeaking?


When a user, who uses Dragon NaturallySpeaking, says "new" when viewing a Document Library the default content type is selected and the associated application (e.g. Microsoft Word) is launched. This scenario is okay for Content Type selection since the Microsoft Office applications will prompt for the metadata once the file is saved.

If the user needs to create new folders in the Document Library however they need to expand the "new" dropdown menu.

What is the best way for someone using Dragon NaturallySpeaking to expand the "new" menu for a Document Library in SharePoint?

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?
