Granular control for document management

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

We are using a product from NSI called AutoStore.  The way we have it configured, it monitors an e-mail address, and as new e-mail arrives, the message body, as well as all attachments, are converted to PDF, renamed, and uploaded to a SharePoint document library.  The end goal is to provide external users a way to access uploaded documents through the SharePoint web interface, but restrict them from seeing anything in the document library other than their own documents.  Is this possible?  Right now they can see their own documents, and other users' folders, but cannot see other users' documents within those folders.

Integrate LOB Document Management System



I think this is the right forum but forgive me if not. 

As part of an interim solution we need to integrate an LOB document management solution within SharePoint and i need some expert advice on how to do it and hope this is the right place.

The LOB system has document indexes (meta data) stored in a database linked to documents held on hard disk. For now we can't pull all of the documents into SharePoint but i need a way to access them from SharePoint, i also need to acces them through the LOBs existing web site.


1. Be able to use the Entreprise Search within SharePoint to search the index data  with the LOB database.

2. The search results page to provide links to a SharePoint page which hosts the LOB's web site. Pass some unique document Id to the LOB website so that it can show the document within SharePoint.

My thoughts (i'm new to SharePoint and don't know if this is feasible or the right way to do it so shout if you think it's a load of tosh);

1. Create a new SharePoint site or add a new page to an existing site.
2. Add a Page Viewer web part (or a custom one) to the site which points, to the LOBs web site.
3. Define the LOB system to the BDC telling it how to find the indexes (meta data) in the database tables.
4. One database record corresponds to one document. So

Document Compare feature in Sharepoint Document Management

We are in the design stage of implementing a Document Management system in Sharepoint.  My client wants to compare versions of documents.  Can anyone tell me if this feature in Sharepoint is using the Doc Compare function of Word or is there a more robust feature in sharepoint?  My client is looking for something more robust than what is offered by MS Word.

How to open an excel document in a webbrowser control

Hi,  I have an XBAP app that we would like to be able to open an Excel doc in a WebBrowser control but instead we always get prompted to opne in Excel.  Is this possible?  Here is what I have tried.  The reports are in SharePoint but we want to show them in our own application not SharePoint.       System.Windows.Forms.WebBrowser ReportView = new System.Windows.Forms.WebBrowser();     WindowsFormsHost ReportViewHost = new WindowsFormsHost(); ReportView.Navigate(_fileName,   "_self", postBytes, "Content-Type: application/vnd.m?s-excel"); ReportViewHost.Child = ReportView;   _filename would be something like http://localhost/shared%20documents/myfile.xslsx Thanks for any suggestions.

How to design centralized document management solution for Intranet

Our need: -SharePoint Server 2010 based Intranet with the document management solution.(about 200-300 documents) -All documents are centralized to one place -Managed metadata are added to every document. Metadata are used to search as well. -Folders are needed because of user permissions. Not everybody can open all documents. -Automatic item copy process to desired target place are desired to help end-user My design I planned this way, but did not work in practise. I created 1 centralized document library with several folders based on category. I user Content query webpart to display documents in other sites. This works fine. I wanted to automatic process to move added documents based on metadata. Example: When document include managed metadata "personnel" or "HR", the document is move to the folder named "Personnel". I made 2 different tests, but neither of them filled all requirements: 1. Using Content organizer, I was not able to make conditions based on metadata, but was able to move documents to the folders. 2. Using Workflow, I was able to make conditions based on metadata, but not able to move documents to the folders.   I failed to use metadata to move items to the Folder. Do you have any idea to me? I'm open to any ideas.Kenny_I

Possible to Control Depth That OPENXML Parses xml document

I'm trying to parse a survey and only want to parse to a particular depth in the XML.  I want to preserve the hierarchical structure so that I can import it into SSAS and build a cube solution around the survey and the survey results. The structure of the xml follows this patten: <Survey Name="Medicare Inbound/Outbound Disenrollment Survey NY/NJ English"> <Introduction Text_English="Created by dcho on 3/23/2010." /> <   Question Tag="Inbound/Outbound" Type="Choice" Min="0" Max="40" Choices="inbound|outbound" Hint="" Question_English="(Select Inbound/Outbound and click Next)" /> <   Question Tag="Outbound Introduction" Type="Choice" Min="0" Max="40" Choices="yes|no" Hint="" Question_English="Hello may I speak with (disenrolled member)?&#xD;&#xA;&#xD;&#xA;(Select choice from dropdown and click Next)"> <   Condition Tag="Inbound/Outbound" Comparison="EQ" Value="outbound" /> </   Question> I only want to descend to the Question attribute so that I can pick up its Tag element.  I do not want to pick up the Condition attribute and its corresponding Tag element.

Document Management

I am running SP 2007, Enterprise. Assume i have a 30 page document & several people make changes to it. How can I see the changes, that each person makes. Ideally I am looking for something similar to track changes in Word. Version control does not show where the changes were made.

ASP:Upload control . Uploading into a SharePoint Document Library Subfolder and FILE NOT FOUND error

RE: ASP:Upload control . Uploading into a SharePoint Document Library Subfolder and FILE NOT FOUND error Two Issues, apparently unrelated. I have subfolders like this /ApplicantDocuments/20 and /ApplicantDocuments/21 (where 20 and 21 are my subfolders and ApplicantDocuments is my library. 1. The below function is erroring with file not found, but I confirmed I'm sending the fully qualify path (i.e c:\test.txt) to System.IO.FileStream content = System.IO.File.Open(documentFileName, System.IO.FileMode.Open); 2. Even if it worked, looking at the code, I'm not using argument foldername.  I'm passing 20 to the argument. How can I make sure it uploads into subfolder 20 of ApplicantDocuments? Thank you.     Just testing in test environment. Will tighten code once it works.   public void UploadDocumentToSite(string foldername, string documentFileName) {      SPSite siteCollection = new SPSite("https://xxxxxx");      SPWeb web = siteCollection.OpenWeb();      //SPSite.AllowUnsafeUpdates = true;      //Web.AllowUnsafeUpdates = true;      string Lib = "ApplicantDocuments";      SPFolder destFolder = web.GetFolder(Lib);      sendmail(documentFileName+" "+foldername);  

Document control with approval process

I need a mechanism to upload documents, in which has up to 12 different approval levels, dependant on value and cannot be escalated until the lower level's approve.  I need the ability to send email notification that a document is pending their approval as well as the ability to see at any given moment, where the document is in the approval cycle.

Question about Workflow in Document Library with version control and check-in/out enabled



I use Sharepoint Foundation 2010 and have a workflow to set some metadata in a document with version control and check-in/check-out enabled (approval content is not enabled because anyone in the team can be a possible editor of the document).

My metadata is:

- a generated doc id with text+id (example P&D_1)

- a calculated status based in version: minor version = "on development" and major-version="published/approved"

I defined two workflows:

1) is called when item is created to define id and status.

2) is called when item is updated and status is re-calculated if version is major. (It is called in every item change, not only when user wants to publish a major version, because this option doesn't appear in SPD)

I noticed that sharepoint workflow must do a check-out to be able to update metadata, and because of this the version number is incremented. When version is minor, I don't care, but when version is major I have a problem, because just after publishing the version 1.0, the workflow changes metadata and the version to 1.1. and 1.1 means that the document is not approved anymore...


a) Isn't it possible to do the workflow to check-in and override the last/current version to not generate a new version??

b) Or is it possible to stop versi

Document management features in sharepoint 2010

Sharepoint Document Version Control



I am wanting to migrate a number of existing documents into sharepoint so they can be version managed.  However, most of these documents are already up to version 10 etc (on a manual system), I am wanting to start the versioning in sharepoint at a particular version instead of 1.  Has anyone done this?

How to implement robust Document Management application using MOSS 2007


I want to implement an efficient document management system using MOSS 2007.

I know Sharepoint 2007 offers OOB document management capabilties but I am facing strong challenge in uploading large files(500-1GB file size) into document library. If I have to avoid direct storing of files in document library then pointer/link to files in physical drives is possible but in that case I will not be able to leverage the full capabilities of sharepoint.

Need some views or directions in regard to this. Any link to custom solution/source code is most welcome.

Thanks in advance.

Error When a Word Document is displayed in WebBrowser Control



We are using a WebBrowser control to display an MS Word document in a form. This was working fine for a long time, and now we tried to install this application in a new server. Now we are facing an issue. When we try to open the word document by using WebBrowserControl.Navigate method, it is asking the Open/Save dialog box, which is typically displayed when we download a file. Then if the user clicks on Open button, we are getting an error "Windows cannot find 'UsersTempFolder\1\Temp\MyDoc.DOCX'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the Start button, and then click Search.". Please note that UsersTempFolder\1\Temp\MyDoc.DOCX is NOT the path I have given in Navigate method. Also, if I click Save in open/save dialog box, I can save to a location and open it.

I don't have direct access to this server, but if I can believe the words of support person, every configuration is set same as our old server. Here is the details.
