Data form web part not displaying - Unable to display this Web Part. ....

  

Hi,

I am designing a data form - adding some formatting etc.  I am able to see the webpart correctly in SPD split view, but when I trying to preview it, it gives me the following error

Unable to display this Web Part. To troubleshoot the problem, open this Web page in a Windows SharePoint Services-compatible HTML editor such as Microsoft Office SharePoint Designer. If the problem persists, contact your Web server administrator.
ANy help would be welcome, I have spent a lot of time on this page and don't want to do it again.  THere are a lot of fields and it's a tedious process to move them to the correct location.  I am at my wits end, I am not sure how to debug this!!
Thanks,

Is it possible to have a dynamic data source

  
I am looking to develop a SSRS report, and the idea is that I want to view backup history on various DB servers. I would like to have a drop down list of servers, and from there I can choose a server and a query will run on that server. I have been trying to find out some information on this, but my understanding is that this can be done via URL, but not sure if thats the best way to do this. Thanks.

Adding source redirect code to end of a URL which used a dynamic data value

  
I'm trying to add some source redirect code to the end of a URL in a Data Form Web Part on a simple SharePoint aspx page. This is the basic url: /itservices/helpdesk/Lists/Service%20Requests/DispForm.aspx?ID={@ID} However I want to add a source redirect to the end of the URL so that it returns to a particular page rather than the list's default page. I have tried all of the following: /itservices/helpdesk/Lists/Service%20Requests/DispForm.aspx?ID={@ID}&source=/itservices/Pages/MyOverview.aspx That causes an error in the web part stating "This Web Part does not have a valid XSLT stylesheet: Error; A semi colon character was expected". I tried replacing the ampersand with the URL encoded character: /itservices/helpdesk/Lists/Service%20Requests/DispForm.aspx?ID={@ID}%26source=/itservices/Pages/MyOverview.aspx But when opening from this URL the form contains no data. What am I missing or can this not be done? Thanks.  

Unable to Show Edit item Links in Data Form Web Part

  
I have a DFWP connected to custom list and the boxes to Show Edit Item Links, Show Delete item links and Show Insert Item links are grayed out so that they can not be checked. This works fine when I use a DFWP connected to a standard list (i.e., Contacts). Is there something special that needs to be done to activate this functionality?ThanksDean

AJAX, Data Form Web Part, and Paging

  
I've placed a Data Form Web Part into an Update Panel, and it works great.  This particular use of the web part requires Single Item mode with paging.  My problem is that the "Previous" button for paging calls a javascript function for "history.back()".  Well, the only history to go back to since I am using AJAX around the web part is whatever page (if any) that the user was on before navigating to the page with the AJAX functionality.  It does not go to the previous list item.I've copied the function from the "Next" button, and created my own xslt variables to pass into it for the previous item:<xsl:value-of select="ddwrt:GenFireServerEvent(concat('dvt_firstrow={',$PreviousRow,'};dvt_startposition={',$PreviousPageData,'}'))" />This works fine UNLESS items are deleted from the List that is providing that data to the Web Part. Then my idea doesn't work because it is trying to look for ID numbers that do not exist in the list anymore.  Does anyone know of a way, or a built in variable from the ddwrt namespace, that will pass the previous list item to the "Previous" button no matter if there are deleted items (missing ID numbers) in the providing list? I would greatly appreciate some help.Thanks. Jason A. Graham http://jasonAgraham.spaces.live.com

Data form web part issue with pagination

  
I have a data form web part which I put inside a user control. I have an issue with the default pagination. Clicking the previous button on the pagination causes a "Webpage is expired" error. I've tried copying the code from the next button but it doesn't work and I've also tried caching my pages still nothing. I read somewhere here that someone was able to implement the previous button pagination from code behind but he still hasn't replied to my question. Does anyone else know how to implement this from code behind? Really need help with this.

Data view web part: Change Data Source

  
I have a data view web part that I would like to use multiple time in the same page, but tied to different sharepoint lists.  Is there an efficient way to do this?

Changes not reflecting in Data Form Web Part

  

Hi All,

The problem I am facing is as follows:

I have a DataFormWebPart used to DISPLAY data from a list (call it List A) which was created in MOSS 2007. This web part was later migrated to SharePoint Server 2010.

The Web Part works fine. The problem arises when trying to modify the web part. I followed the following steps:

1. I exported the .webpart file of the webpart from the Web Part gallery.
2. I made changes to the XSL template of the web part.
3. Uploaded the template back to the web part gallery.
4. Added the webpart to the page.

However whatever changes I made are not reflected. I tried openning the page in sharepoint designer and I can see my changes in the HTML code of the page. Then I tried a View Source of the page and the changes are not there.

Seems very confusing. Any help will be appreciated.

Regards,

Huzefa Mala.

xml secondary data source used for drop down selection how do I return additional fields to form bas

  

I received some much needed assistance from this forum in the past. My current situation is that I have a xml data connection to a sharepoint list over an employee database that works fine. It allow me to connect to a view on the sharepoint list correctly and display the info which is a drop down on a last name field. I now need to be able to select a last name such as Doe and have other fields such as job code be populated on the form from the same sharepoing list I have already connected to. Any direction is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Is a Dynamic Config Possible for SSAS BIDS Projects? (Data Source / Connection, and Deployment Targe

  

How do we automate SSAS Project configs such that (a) RDBMS data source server (connection) and (b) SSAS deployment target server are dynamic? 

As it stands, just before I script the ASDB (for deployment/promotion from Dev to QA, or QA to Prod, for example), I use BIDS designer interfaces to change the source connection and deployment targets, then script the ASDB. 

Is there a more dyamic alternative?  Perhaps something analogous to SSIS package configurations?  I can't believe that everybody is doing this as manually as I've done.


Data View Web Part, update to Data Source / adding new list to existing data source

  

Hi all,

I have four Lists with identical columns :

List 1
List 2
List 3
List 4

I had to merge them, hence i created a data source ( Linked Source ) and merged these lists in SPD. I have used a data view webpart to display some columns from the merged lists data source and everything was working fine.

But now i have a new List : List 5 which also has the same columns like the other four lists and i need to update the data soure such that it is merged list of 5 lists not 4.

i updated the datasource property of the linked source to merge this new list as well. However the contents of List 5 dont appear in the data view webpart. 

Am i missing something here ? 

I dont want recreate the data view web part from scratch eachtime , because in future there might be List 6 , List 7 as well ...

Custom List Form web part connection to data view

  
Hi

We have a sharpoint site to manage "projects".    That site includes a document library.  The documents uploaded to the library are categorised based on the project they belong to.

We are trying to implement a custom list form for editing a project record that does one of the following:

1. When the edit form is loaded for a particular projects record that edit form also shows a list of relevant documents.

or

2. Include a button or link on the edit form to another page that lists only the documents for the current project.

We thought this would be easy to do using web part connections.  If we click on the custom list form it gives us the option to setup a web part connection.  However, if you follow this wizard through and get to the stage of selecting columns to link, there are no columns listed for either the custom list form or for the target dataview.  This is the case whether the target data view is on the same page, ie in case of option 1 or on a different page as in case of option 2.

Could someone advise us how we could either get the web part connections between the custom list form and other dataviews to work or how we could hyperlink to a dataview and pass the id of the record currently being edited to that dataview as a filter?

We are using Sharepoint Designer so would appreciate any suggestions base
