Sharepoint MCM Certification

What sharepoint course does one need to pass to obtain the MCM (Microsoft Certified Master)

SharePoint 2010 certification

Hi, I looked on the microsoft site and it looks like the certification program has been released, but there are no prep materials, and I can't find out any information on the test (aside for the generic stuff).  Has it actually been released yet?

SharePoint (MOSS2007) + Office2003 + IE 6 => crash: "unknown software exception (0xc06d007f)"


We use MOSS2007 and all users use Office2003. Some users cannot enter the SharePoint pages as IE6 crashes when they try to (generally enter not just commit changes or whatsoever).

Although it is technically possible to perform changes on the OWSSUPP.DLL the users are far away and not very skilled. This would be the last measure to take if nothing else works.

There were related topics already discussed Related topics already discussed as having been patched but here everything gets a bit difficult. I cannot make the users perform updates that have not been specified by an internal institution. It is thus not enough for us that this issue has been fixed in updates. I have to know which patches or updates are necessary so that I can request them to be installed.

I would be really great if someone would share further details on the necessary updates.

Thank you very much.

With kind regards,


Assigning a group to a sharepoint role via stsadm (moss2007)



On our Sharepoint 2007 server, in a particular site collection, I have a bunch of users added to a group called 'staff'. How can I assign this group to Sharepoints internal 'designers' role using Powershell.

I thought that something like:

stsadm -o userrole -url http://site -userlogin domain\user -role design

might do the trick, but this only returns user not found, even though if I try to add the role to the user with the UI the account is there and can be added without any problems.

Any thoughts anyone?



SharePoint list connected to outlook is not trusted because of certification error


in our environment users have several SharePoint (WSS 3.0) contact lists, calendars etc. connected with Outlook 2007. But each time they start Outlook it gives them a certificate warning with message "The name of the security certificate is invalid or does not match the name of the site".

The users access the SharePoint site strictly using the URL https://sharepoint.ourcompany.com. The certificate is issued by our certification authority and the CA's certificate is installed on users' computers. So when they access the site using IE, there is no certificate warning.

Is Outlook somehow using the internal URL of the server and that is why the names don't match? Is there a way to change the URL? Or is there a way to say to Outlook "ignore this warning for this URL forever and ever"

It is not critical but it bothers when you have to always click "Yes".

Thanks for any advice.

SharePoint Moss2007 - Permissions for Issue Tracker. Want users to Edit but not Delete


I have a issue tracker list setup and I've got custom permission group which is basically the same as the standard Contribute group except with Delete removed. However using this custom group users don't get the Edit button on the List Items to then be able to go in and change. When I add the delete permission to the group they can then go in - but can then obviously delete which I don't want them to be able to do.

Anyone got a solution for this?


Changing the graphics on the home page of a SharePoint site

When you create a site in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services by using the default Team Site template, the home page includes two default graphics. A Windows SharePoint Services graphic appears in the body of the page, and a picture of a house in a circle appears near the site title. You can change these graphics to customize your site. Changing the smaller graphic requires a Windows SharePoint Services compatible Web page editor

Displaying SharePoint lists in Web Parts

When you create a built-in or custom list in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services, Windows SharePoint Services creates a Web Part, a basic building block of a SharePoint site, to display that list. These Web Parts are called List View Web Parts. Windows SharePoint Services stores List View Web Parts in the site collection Web Part gallery. (The site collection Web Part gallery is the most central gallery of Web Parts for a work group. By default, the gallery name is the name of the site, such as "Our Team Site Web Part Gallery." )

Take a tour of your SharePoint site

What is a SharePoint site for?
A SharePoint site is a Web site that provides a central storage and collaboration space for documents, information, and ideas. A SharePoint site is a tool for collaboration, just like a telephone is a tool for communication, or a meeting is a tool for decision making. A SharePoint site helps groups of people (whether work teams or social groups) share information and work together. For example, a SharePoint site can help you:

Coordinate projects, calendars, and schedules.
Discuss ideas and review documents or proposals.
Share information and keep in touch with other people.

Six easy ways to customize your site using Web Parts in SharePoint

Becoming familiar with Web Part customization techniques gives you a range of page-customization choices. For example, you can customize your site's home page so that it displays the specific information that your team needs. You can rearrange the list items on the home page, add lists, and even change the images on the home page. As you become more familiar with Web Part Page customization techniques, you can build interactive Web Part Pages that makes the data in lists more dynamic and useful, and you can add new Web Parts that provide access to external data and Web services.

Working with SharePoint document libraries

Document libraries are collections of files that you can share with team members on a Web based on Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services. For example, you can create a library of common documents for a project, and team members can use their Web browsers to find the files, read them, and make comments. Users with Microsoft Office 2003 can check out and edit the files as if they resided on a local or network drive.

By default, your team Web site comes with a built-in document library named Shared Documents, which is listed on the Quick Launch bar as well as on the Documents and Lists page.

Out of the Depths of SharePoint's XML Hell

I described how a new open source tool called sporm significantly simplifies unit testing SharePoint. Making SharePoint unit testable is my absolute favorite feature of sporm because SharePoint is notoriously hard to unit test. But sporm provides other benefits as well and its ability to pull us out of the depths of verbose loosely typed XML hell and into LINQ excellence is next on my list of favorite features. So in this post I'll describe the pre-sporm technique of querying with CAML, how to query data using sporm, and finally how sporm supports SharePoint's unique architecture of allowing multiple content types per list and what that means to you.

Unit Testing SharePoint - Past, Present, and Sporm

As I described in SharePoint: The Wild West of Software Development there is a serious problem when you develop for SharePoint: ensuring quality through unit testing is really, really hard. And that's where a new open source tool just released today called sporm (SharePoint Object Relational Mapper) comes in. While sporm provides many benefits besides simplified unit testing I wanted to focus on this topic first, because sporm's approach, which models the entity framework in the way it supports POCO's, is a unique feature not available with other SharePoint tools like LINQ to SharePoint.

SharePoint Tutorial - Web Parts

A page in SharePoint is comprised of web parts the exist within zones. Web parts are available for just about everything. For example in the page below there are four web part highlighted by different colors. The purple web part displays a short list of the new announcements stored in the annoucements library. The pink web part displays events from a calendar within the site. The green web part displays an image from a location the user specifies. The gray web part displays a list of links from the links list on the site.

SharePoint Tutorial - Team Sites

Team sites are small web sites that are created to store everything about a particular thing. For example a site can be created for a department in an organization like human resources. I site can be created for a particular project. A site can even be created for a meeting. Everything about the thing (department, project, meeting) like documents, lists, calendars, etc. is stored in that site.

SharePoint Tutorial - Libraries

A library is a feature in SharePoint that stores files (documents). Think of a library as a folder on your file system. For example, a library can be created to store resumes in the human resources team site. A library is usually created for a specific type of file. Libraries can contain metadata to describe the particular file in more detail and to make it easier to find.
