Not always prompted for read-only or EDIT mode, when opening files with IE7, Sharepoint 3.0

Hello Everyone,   We use Sharepoint 3.0 and when I click on a document I get a pop up prompt that asks me whether I want to open the file in READ-ONLY or EDIT mode.   I use a machine with XP Pro that is running IE7.   A user called me today, also running IE7, and when he clicks to open a Sharepoint file he gets a different prompt - a simpler one that just offers OPEN or SAVE.   I don't care that his prompt looks different - the problem is that he is able to open the file, make edits, but then when he closes the file (using Excel) he isn't able to save his changes.   Excel only provides a save-as option for him.   This isn't a permission problem with his ID.   When I login to our Sharepoint 3.0 system as him, with his password (from my machine), I get the usual Read-Only / Edit prompt and when I open a file in EDIT mode I am able to save my changes with no problem.   Any thoughts on this?   Chris

Preventing of Javascript files from being loaded for Anonymous Users



we have  developed an internet  site using Sharepoint 2010 and are trying to fine fine tune the site w.r.t. the performance and are trying to block the OOTB javascript files(i.e ie55up.js, init.js,SP.Core.js,cui,js etc.) for anonymous users.

Have tried all the conventional ways followed in Sharepoint 2007 for the same (i.e. tweaking SharePoint:ScriptLink , asp:ScriptManager controls, using Sharepoint:SPSecurityTrimmedControl etc.) but in vain.

It appears that the OOTB controls placed even in the Sharepoint:SPSecurityTrimmedControl block are called for anonymous users and call  the .js files).

Can anyone suggest the ways to remove the page weight , currently the javascript alone are taking 2MB even for the anonymous users.


Thanks and Regards,


sp_send_dbmail can't attach files larger than 2MB


I use [sp_send_dbmail] to send a query result as an xml attachment. When I first started using sp_send_dbmail, my attachments were small XML files and they were delivered correctly and I was happy with it; those files were like 1MB in size.

However, it wasn't that easy at first too. sp_send_dbmail takes lots of arguments and one of them is query_result_width which is a number between 10 and 32767. When you use sp_send_dbmail to send xml attachments, it removes the CR/LF characters at the end of xml lines and turn the whole xml attachment into a single line file; then it will cut the line into 32767 character lines and it doesn't care where is it going to cut the line and you'll end up with a corrupt xml attachment which needs to be edited manually before it gets open in the Microsoft Excel...

I solved that problem by casting the resulting xml into nvarchar(max) and replacing "/>" with "/>CRLF" inside that nvarchar string to avoid those nasty line-breaks.

Now I have another problem. sp_send_dbmail will truncate my xml attachments in exactly 2,097,156 bytes...

I think it's originating from that nvarchar(max) casting. Does anyone know anything of a workaround to this?

This is what I use to send emails:

DECLARE @MailProfile	sysname;

Hard drive crashed - no backup - Files saved, cannot attach sql db

I successfully attached 5 databases, they are working now, but have problem with 6th. When i trying to attach it get the error;

Server Name: PROMET
Error Number: 9004
Severity: 21
State: 1
Line Number: 1

.mdf file has 1.3 gigs and .ldf 6.1 gig

I searching trough the forums all day, and i cannot find working answer...

Please help me, i can provide additional information if needed.

How to attach files in vb.net


Hi everybody,

I have created an asp.net form in vb.net that sends an activation email after it is filled out and I was wondering how to attach a file(s) to the activation email sent out after the form is submitted.

The function I believe to use after the 'mail.body' portion is:

Dim attachment as New MailAttachment(Server.MapPath("test.txt"))



The portion that is confusing me is what parts above need to be filled in with an actual value. Also, do I need to store the files in a location such as an FTP client or db (at the moment they are on my hardrive).



Clean Web.Config Files (VS 2010 and .NET 4.0 Series)

.NET 4 includes a new version of the CLR, and a new .NET 4 specific machine.config file (which is installed side-by-side with the one used by .NET 2, .NET 3 and .NET 3.5).

The new .NET 4 machine.config file now automatically registers all of the ASP.NET tag sections, handlers and modules that we've added over the years, including the functionality for:

.ASP.NET Dynamic Data
.ASP.NET Routing (which can now be used for both ASP.NET WebForms and ASP.NET MVC)
.ASP.NET Chart Control (which now ships built-into ASP.NET V4)
What this means is that when you create a new "Empty ASP.NET application" project in VS 2010, you'll find that the new default application-level web.config file is now clean and simple:

Tuples, Anonymous Types, and Concrete Types

Tuples can save you a great deal of repetitive tasks. They can also lead to completely unreadable code in a language like C#. Tuples are data values that contain N items. The .NET framework supports tuples containing 1 to 8 members. To use tuples with more than 8 members, you use another tuple for the member of an octtuple

How to transfer files between computer and mobile device using bluetooth

What is Bluetooth? How can I have it on my computer?

Bluetooth wireless technology is a communication technology that allows two devices to communicate wirelessly. Most of the notebooks are nowadays equipped with bluetooth. For those notebooks or computers that don't, you can use a bluetooth dongle to add the functionality and it just costs you around $5. Although higher price range bluetooth dongles are available but it makes no sense of buying them if you just plan to connect your mobile device to the computer. Look for one that has Bluetooth v2.0 + EDR (Enhance Data Rate) supporting speeds of upto 3Mbps and with Vista support. You can easily have one of that kind in just $5.

Setting up bluetooth to work on your computer

Just Insert the bluetooth dongle in the USB.
It should get detected by your Operating System and should be ready to use. In case it is just detected as a new hardware, you need to install drivers for it that came with your bluetooth dongle (You can try Google to find the drivers).
Once drivers are installed, a bluetooth notification icon will appear in your system tray.
Right Click on it to access Settings (This may vary with your bluetooth dongle).
Make sure you have turned Discovery On (It allow others to see your computer).
Switch On the bluetooth on the mobile device.

dynamically adding sql server columns based on number of files in fileuploader


I want to create a new table to sql database at runtime.  The column names would be "Name", "Date", "Event".  I would also like to have one more column name "Image" but the problem is that since the amount of images will vary, I want the application to count the amount of files in the Multiple fileuploader and then add a image column to the table for the respected amount of files. 

For example if i am uploading 3 files in the multiple fileuploader, the names should be "Name", "Date", "Event", "Image1", "image2", Image3"

I also would like that table name to be name dynamically from the textbox Name when the user enters the information.


I have the following code to make a new table, but I dont know how to name the fields at runtime like previously asked please help!!!
