Add Document link missing from library

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


I have a SharePoint 2010 farm that was upgraded from MOSS 2007.

I have noticed that in some of my document libraries, there is a tick box next to each item in the list, and an Add Document link at the bottom of the list, but in other Document libraries, the tick box and link are not there.

How do I get these to display for all document libraries?

Workflow data missing from Document Library

Hi, We have this strange situation where the workflow status is missing from document library views. Here is the situation: I have a Document Library with 3 OOTB approval workflows configured to start manually. Process is that user uploads a doc, start the first workflow, once it gets completed starts the second, and so forth. Now if I check the All Documents view of this Document Library, I can see these three workflows have 3 columns and that shows the status of the workflow - say "In progress", "Completed" etc. Now our users who use this document library and workflow complains that they cannot see these status of the workflow after some days. If a workflow is completed and status shows completed there, but after some days that column is blank. I've checked the modified data for the documents and this issue according to the user happens to documents that was uploaded 2 weeks back too, which means this doesn't happen to old document only. This document library has Major and Minor versioning enabled. Why does this happen, does SharePoint remove data for completed workflows? I checked the document's workflow page and its empty; nothing under running workflows and nothing under completed workflows. In Doc Library settings - Workflow settings I could not find an option View Workflow reports. That page has the following details: Use this page to view or

Document Library Missing Columns in Edit Properties

Hi, I'm having an issue with a specific Site Collection.  The issue is that some of the columns do not show up when you go to the Edit Properites page, or when the user creates a new document.  The items can be edited when opened in a data sheet, but the users would like to be able to edit them on the Edit Properties page.  They say they haven't made any changes, but this has happened at least 3 times with differenct document libraries on this specific site.  Has anyone else ever dealt with this?  Anyone got a solution?  Let me know if more info is needed.  Thanks.

Document icon and title link in document library don't navigate on click for one user using IE8


On a pretty vanilla SharePoint document library, a particular user browsing with IE8 can click on the document icon or the title link for a Word document but nothing happens.  Other document types were not tested, so I can't say if it was specific to Word documents. The user can however pull up the menu at the right of the title and select "Open in Microsoft Office Word" which will open the document in Word and is then able to modify and save the document.  The behavior has not been observed from other users using IE8.  I've reviewed the users Internet Options settings and didn't see anything out of the ordinary and tried disabling pop-up blocker and other potentially interfering features without changing the observed behavior.  The user is from a different location and his configuration may or may not represent the stock configuration at that site, so I can't dismiss it without determining whether it would affect all users at his site.  Word 2007 is installed on the user's machine.

Does this sound familiar?  Any suggestions for troubleshooting?

Hyperlinking to individuals folder in a document library from one link

I have created a document library with a folder belonging to each person in our staff. I created a link in the top menu labeled "My Files". Is it possible from the "My Files" hyperlink to link directly to the folder of the individual logged in? Currently right now the link just opens the directory and the user will see just one folder which is ok but it would be neat to have it direct right to the root of their folder.

Providing a link in an email to a document in another document library



I am developing a custom workflow using Sharepoint Designer 2007 in which workflow has to send a notification email with a link to a document which is in another document library.

When i tried, i am getting HTTP 404 error. Workflow is initiated manually. I am having site collection Admin rights. Has anyone done this? Any help appreciated. Thanks in Advance.

Add Document link in Document Library




On my development server, I created a forms library and somehow or other, I have managed to work it that the Add Document link below the library list, actually creates a new form from the default template, rather than uploading one, this is perfect and much more intuitive.

I'm now trying to repeat this process in a document library and can't figure it out. Can anyone tell me how I might have done this in the Forms Library???

Or is it just a difference in funcationality between a form library and a document library????

Help please.

How do I create an Upload.aspx link on the front page of my document library without the subsequent


I need to create an Upload.aspx link on the front page of my document library, rather than rely on the + Add Document link at the bottom of the list.

When I copy the URL of the Add Document link to my page or as a quick link it uploads the file, brings up the metadata form, but then asks the user to save the file on save.

Clicking on the + Add Document link does a clean upload without the reuest to save the file?

The link I create has the format "_Layouts/Upload.aspx?List={ABC123}&RootFolder=tFolder="

Is there some parameter to Upload.aspx? that I need to add?

Complete folders missing from Document Library, but available through search (WSS 2.0)


Dear all,

We have a WSS 2.0 Server (in Farm mode with SQL backend). About 6 months ago, a user moved a lot of folders around within a Document Library (doing a bit of a cleanup).

Since then, most folders in the library cannot be seen, either through web browser or Explorer view. They simply don't appear (as though they've been deleted).
However, if we search for a file it will appear in search, and the URL/path to the file is in the folders that cannot be seen (or seemingly don't exist). You can then view the file as normal if you click the link from the search results.

If we remove the file name from the URL we can then browse the folder that it resides in, however once we get up to the top level folder in the D/L, we get a 404.

Eg: Browsing we see:

Shared Documents/Folder one
Shared Documents/Folder two

If we search we see links to:

Shared Documents/Folder five/Quotes/Australia/quote1.doc (we can then view & download this file fine).

We can then enter the URL to "Shared Documents/Folder five/Quotes/Australia/" in browser and view all files in the Australia folder. If we click 'Up' we can even view the contents of the 'Quotes' folder, but then we hit 'Up' again to get to Folder Five, we get a 404!

This is the most bizarre of all WSS problems I've seen, a

Upload a File to a SharePoint Document Library - Part I

The following helper class demonstrates a few techniques that allow documents to be uploaded to a SharePoint document library programmatically without using the API or a custom web service. You don't need to specify a document library name, and it will create any folders specified in the URL as required. File meta data will be updated if any properties are passed.
