I have a document library with the standard name column linking to the document. However, we'd like to create a custom field and have that link to the document (and edit item menu).
How is this best accomplished?
Thanks in advance!
I'm trying to create a custom document library template at farm level, as I want to template to be available in all the sites I create.
The thing is that I'm not sure if I'm taking the correct approach. I just need a standard document library with 3 additional columns (Metadata) 2 text fields and one date field. I will then add a document library of this type to a custom site template I've
already created. (So instead of list with Type '101' I will use my custom 10055 library.
The way I'm trying to do this is:
1. I make a copy of the FEATURES\DocumentLibrary folder of my installation. So now I have FEATURES\CustomLibrary folder
2. I create an empty SharePoint project in Visual Studio 2010 and map the TEMPLATE folder, and the I add CustomLibrary folder and all the files and subfolders in it.
3. I edit the feature.xml, and add a newly generated GUID
4. I make the modifications I need to the other xml files included in the DocLib and SiteTemplates subfolders. (Type=10055, etc..)
5. I right click on the solution and deploy.
After this, I can't see my custom library when I try to create a new item in my sites.
One thing I don't understand is why the OOTB DocumentLibrary feature has HIDDEN = true in the feature.xml file. Anyway I've tried both in my custom template, but
The following error occurred within a SharePoint 2010 document library:
As I tried to test out the new SharePoint 2010 environment I changed the metadata from a few documents within a document library. I noticed that the data from the currency und number field was incorrect from a few documents. The numbers
looked like that the decimal separator were ignored. For an example: 123.456,78 was saved as 12.345.678.
At first I thought it could be a language incompabilty but if that would be the case: Why would there be other documents which show the correct number?
I created another document library to recreate this error. And there I noticed the real reason: Every time I changed these fields from a document which was saved in the office 2007 format the error occurred. The metadata from the documents
in the office 2003 format were correct.
Has anyone a similar problem or got an idea how to solve this problem?

I need to change the look and feel of "NewForm.aspx" for my Sharepoint 2007 Document Library. But the constraints are
1. I cant use C# coding. No Visual Studio.
2. Not allowed change anything in the farm level. e.g. cant install features/webparts fo this.
Please help me, I dont know if this is really possible. Let me know if any alternative is possible.
After a rollback to a previous version, the value of the column "Name" in a document library is not restored. All other columns are restored properly. It seems that the column "Name" (file name) is excluded from the process of versioning.
I didn't find information on this behaviour on the internet. Any suggestions ?
Hi there ,is there any step by step instructions on how to make search using custom columns with wildcard i mean ability to make user fill fields for column like
Registration code [and the user type something]
ItemName[and type another word]
then finally press search
what i have did for now is
created custom columns for document library
created a scope for this specific document library
created managed property mapped to crawled property of these columns
edited properties xml and added propertyDef and PropertyRef
installed DotNetMafia wildcard webpart and activated feature and added this webpart to page.
then no searchbox appeart ,what am i missing?
Hello I have a problem with managed metadata on two different servers and would like to ask you to try it.
I assume you have managed metadata service running.
1, Open some document library in some site
2, Create column - managed metadata type and select some termset and set it as required.
3, Upload a document and fill in metadata when you will be asked.
4, Then edit properties and check, that metadata are there.
5, Save this library as template.
6, Deploy document library from this template and try steps 3+4.
My problem is, you can select metadata, but they are not saved. e.g. when you check document properties managed metadata are not there.
Can you confirm this behavior ?
Thank you very much.
P.S.: one more weird thing. If you do metadata filling using office 2010 compatible application. Metadata remain there, but they are not visible in document library properties.
I'm attempting to create some VB code to call a SharePoint Web Service to add a document and associated metadata to a document library. I can successfully add metadata to a text column but I'm having some problems getting
multiple entries into a column which is specified to take multiple
users (and does so when they are added manually) although I can get a single user in using the following snippet.
Dim info2 As MySharePoint.FieldInformation = New
info2.DisplayName = "Authors"
info2.InternalName = "Authors"
info2.Type = MySharePoint.FieldType.User
info2.Value = "1"
I'm hoping that someone will be able to advise me of the approach or syntax necessary to add multiple users to this Authors column e.g. Users 1 and 74. I note that
info2.Value = "1,74" or info2.Value = "1;74"
don't appear to work.
I have a document library with having multiple folders approx 100 (001 to 100) , each folder is having multiple document ,Every folder in that document library contains 50000 documents , Document library has some fileds like Fname, Lname,Document Type
[Look up field] having value(Genral,Average,Advance) . now the problem is to search these documents with using custom search as per requirement
the user wants a webpart where it has 2 textbox [FName and LName] and a dropdown [Document type] and a button , using this the user can enter the first name , last name and selecting document type from the dropdown and finally clicking the search
button filters the document library.
my problem is with that how the value of this search criteria can be passed to the Document library.How these webpart can be connected with custom search or do we have any other way to search.
when you create a document in a SP 2010 document library (of a particular content type, by clicking new, letter (content type name) in sharepoint for example) which has default values set on in in the library (set by using library settings -> change
default column values), the default values do not show up until you create the document , save it and reopen it again. Is this a bug or by design. If it is by design, it is horrible since if some of the column default values are mandatory in the
content type then you actually have to type them in before you could possibly save the file which defeats the whole point of having default column values. Also it is tremendously clunky for a user to have to create file, save it , close it, and reopen
it just to view the default metadata in the document information panel that is supposed to be there.
Anyone have any thoughts/solutions to this problem?
I would like to order the document library folders and files (in those folders) on a custom column. Is that possible? For example, I would like to create a "number" column and sort the items based on that column.
Are there any other alternatives?
When I open any document libraries within a specified site collection, I found out they all missing column headers. I could not do sorting on the columns. Anyone knows why?
Thanks in advance,
