Unable to use Managed Property mapped to Choice Dropdown list column in MOSS 2007

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 05, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I have a choice list column containing dropdown values. I crawled the content source and created Managed Property to map it.

Also Configured Advanced Search webpart to display the property. But when I pick the property and perform search with values then no results are returned.

Can any one can help me out.?

Thanks in Advance.!

Assigning Custom Permission Role to a List Column in MOSS 2007

I have created three custom roles: Role1, Role2, Role3.  I have a user list with permissions column.  This permissions column has three choices in a dropdown list.  I want to associate each value in the dropdown list to a custom role (Role1 or Role2 or Role3).  This way, when I create a new user, I would just have to pick a value in the permissions column.  Oh Yes, I am using MOSS 2007.

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.



Exporting MOSS 2007 List to Excel 2007

When doing the export, the columns "Item Type" and "Path" are automatically displayed in the sheet.  Is there anyway to suppress these fields from exporting automatically?  I'm sure this has already been asked before, but I couldn't find anything after much searching (perhaps I'm using the wrong keywords).  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

How to get a list of installed MOSS 2007 updates?

We have several problems with our MOSS 2007 installation and operation and since we found out that two identical sharepoint servers (production and test) that had same updates applied have different Search_DB databases (they have same name function with different number of parameters, for ex.) we have a single idea of what can be the cause: Somehow, windows update or other quirk, an update or hotfix got applied to one of the servers.  Strange thing is, noone of our employees seems to know, neither google seems to know, how do we exactly get a list of installed updates on the MOSS 2007 installation.   So, simple question: HOW? How do we get a complete list of changes (hotfixes, servicepacks, patches) done to an installation of MOSS?

Consume MOSS 2007 list to 2010

Hi all, My end goal is to display a list in SharePoint2010 .... but the list actually originates from SharePoint2007. I thought it could be as easy as creating BCS to the SP2007 list web service (/_vti_bin/Lists.asmx) but BCS has issues with the complex data types and based on other threads this isn't possible.  We've been able to create a data source to the web service and display the list contents on a custom aspx page, but this isn't exactly our end goal. Is there a best practice for this type of thing?  Or do we have to go down the path of creating a custom web part while consuming the web service directly or the SOAP data source we've created?+ Note: Migration is not an option at this point... integration is our current path. Any help is appreciated. Thanks, Eric

Add managed metadata column to list - access denied + terms not visible in lists


Firstly the following is not a problem for users given "Full Control" (and possibly other permission levels might work) at the web application level in central admin.

For any other user with permissions set at site collection level, even "site owners" (full control) , these problems arise.

  1. When adding managed metadata columns to a new document library list, clicking save results in multiple access denied errors getting logged (as seen using UlsViewer) and an exception is raised (sharepoint error page)
  2. In existing document library lists managed metadata column headings are displayed in list views but the terms text is not displayed.
This problem shows up even if the logged on user is the term set owner.  "Available for tagging" is enabled, submissions policy is closed.
Looking at http://<the-site-domain>/Lists/TaxonomyHiddenList/AllItems.aspx and then checking list permissions I can see that "All Authenticated Users" has Read permission level.
Integrated windows authentication - NTLM + Claims Based Authentication is the only authentication method used. It's an intranet site. 

Thanks in advance for any help.

List privileges temporarily disappear after installation auf MOSS 2007 August 2010 CU


Hi all,

after installing the August 2010 CU for our English Sharepoint 2007 farm I randomly have the list menu buttons "New" and "Settings" missing.

The farm consists of two frontend servers, one backend (all three W2003R2 x32) and a SQL 2005 x64 database, also running Windows server 2003.

This appears for all users, including the site administration account. Strangely, after about 10 .. 20 minutes, the buttons re-appear and everything works fine.

Since I installed the August 2010 CU two weeks ago, I have had three occurrences of this phenomenon. Sharepoint Event Logs show no error at the time. IISReset did not fix the issue, it just "went away" after a short time.

Did anybody else experience this issue? Does anybody have a hint where to look for errors here or what might cause this?


Many greetings,



Unable to open an Excel File in Sharepoint MOSS 2007


I am unable to open an excel file in Sharepoint (MOSS 2007). All other documents work fine. As far as I know there was no change on the Server at all.

Excel found unreadable content in 'stuff.xls'. Do you want to recover the contents of this workgroup? If you trust the source of this workbook , click Yes

When I click YES >> It says "Excel recovered your formulas and cell values, but some data may have been lost." And then a link to an xml file , which reads :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes" ?>
- <recoveryLog xmlns="http://schemas.openxmlformats.org/spreadsheetml/2006/main">
  <summary>Errors were detected in file 'http://server_name/Project_name/Shared Documents/abc - def/Phase 5/Track/stuff.xls'</summary>
- <additionalInfo>
  <info>Excel recovered your formulas and cell values, but some data may have been lost.</info>

Now this has resulted in huge loss of data and I can see New numbers in the cells which is very strange!

Is there a way I can get it back ? I do not have a
