SharePoint 2010 library sort order is incorrect.

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 07, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

When sorting by name in a SharePoint 2010 library, numeric results are sorting incorrectly. For instance "122_Test" will sort in front of "13_Test". I know at one point years ago Windows Explorer had the same issue, but when viewing the same library by using the Open with Explorer option, Windows Explorer correctly displays the results. Has anyone encountered this issue, and if so have you found a fix?

Cannot add SQL Server 2008 R2 Report items to SharePoint Server 2010 document library

Using account which is the primary parent site administrator, can upload RDS and RDL files to the document library (however, cannot open report). User is also a domain admin with SA on the database instances. Cannot add Report Data Source with "New Document" icon. The permissions granted to user '[domain]\[user]' are insufficient for performing this operation. Under "Site Settings", "Managed Shared Schedules" fails with same error.

Show wiki page library columns on wiki pages- SharePoint 2010

I created a wiki page library in SharePoint 2010 and added a few columns to the library. However, these columns do not show on the actual wiki pages as they did in SharePoint 2007. I looked through the library settings but didn't find anything to turn on this feature. Does anyone know how to do this or if this feature was even included in SharePoint 2010? Thanks.

Office 2010 can not integrate with Sharepoint Server 2010 document library, both RTM

Hi I have one standalone SharePoint Server 2010 and Office 2010 on Windows Server 2008 SP2. Both SharePoint and Office are RTM. When I create new document from the document library, it can open the Office Word.  When I save the document, Office gives me the local browser dialog other than remote sharepoint library. When I try to enter the sharepoint site url in the dialog, it tells me: path does not exist. On another machine, Windows 7, the Office 2010 RTM can open and save docs from/into the document library. There seems something wrong with the Office client. Maybe someone can tell me how to fix it. Thanks.

Internet Exporer Crashes when viewing a SharePoint 2010 Slide library

I have 3 environments  (Test, Development & Production) in which this issue happens on all. Whether i create a new blank or use and existing Slide library; upload more than one Powerpoint slide in the library and i put my mouse cursor on any place other than the ribbon interface, Internet explorer jams and stops working. IE restarts itself and brings you back to the library but then does the same thing if you put your cursor anywhere in the sharepoint view. We had tested using IE without addons and it worked correctly. We then ran internete explorer and disabled all addons one by one until all were disabled and the issue was still occurring. We had changed a number of settings and found that disabling "active scripting" in the IE settings also made the issue dissapear. The issue is that we want active scripting and all add ons to work aswell.  We also updated Silverlight  from 4 with a build of 3.0.4 from the Microsoft Website.   (Internet Explroer 8 is the version running on Windows 7 Enterprise edition) The issue IE creates in the application log:  Event ID: 1000 Task Category: (100) Level: Error Keyword: Classic Faulting application name: IEXPLORE.EXE, version: 8.0.7600.16385, time stamp: 0x4a5bc69e Faulting module name: mshtml.dll, version: 8.0.7600.16490, time stamp: 0x4b2c9557

Intercept Check-In Event of Document Library in SharePoint 2010

we need to intercept the default check-in Event of the Document Library. The detailed requirements is as follows.   1. Intercept the check-in Event of Document Library. 2. Instead of the default check-in  page (normally this is the layout's checkin.aspx page), show our custom application page. 3. In the custom application page, allow users to provide some inputs. Validate the input values against values stored in database. 4. Once validated successfully, allow user to check-in the documents. Else, do not allow user to check-in the document.   One more additional requirement is the above things should happen only for our custom content type. In order to achieve the same, we are planning for deploying our custom document content types and perform the above operations on check-in event of the documents.     Another approach of performing the same is , have our own custom ECB Menu. The detailed process is as below.   a. Customize the check in menu (ECB) b. Show the custom form and get the inputs from user and do the validations c. On the OK button click, if validation is success, then update the meta data and check in the document or deny the process. d. But in this approach, we need to check the libraries version settings and that default functionalities should be added automatically to the check in process.   At this point of time, we a

Migrate/Move Document Library from Sharepoint 2007 to Sharepoint 2010

Hi, I have a customer that is setting up a new SPS 2010 environment. They have a Sharepint 2007 environment with one document library containing only PDF files. They will not need any metadata on these documents, but would like it to be moved to the new SPS 2010 environment only to be used for history and free text search. Is there an easy way to accomplish this?   Regards Christian GrannesChristianLLoyd

SharePoint 2010 email enabled list with workflow has incorrect User ID when items are emailed to the

I have set up an approval workflow for a document library that has email enabled. Emails come into the document library fine, however, if an item is emailed to the library the workflow kicks off with the initiator as "System Account" rather than the person who submitted the email. This makes the error of "The e-mail message cannot be sent. Make sure the e-mail has a valid recipient." come up. If someone submits a document directly to the library (by logging into sharepoint and submitting) everything works fine. The person submitting by email is a valid sharepoint user and the profile shows the correct email address. The Created by and Modified by fields show the correct person (rather than System Account), it's only the workflow User ID that shows incorrectly if document is emailed to library. Any help or ideas would be appreciated. Thanks

Windows Sharepoint Foundation 2010 - Document Library Settings with Reporting Services 2008 R2 in in

I have a client who has recently upgraded their SharePoint system to Windows Sharepoint Foundation 2010 with Reporting Services 2008 R2 in integrated mode. I have configured reporting services and am able to deploy reports to SharePoint. The client created a document library before the upgrade to WSF 2010. I need to add Report Builder 3.0 to the New Document menu and found the following article. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb326289.aspx "Allow management of content types?" is set to yes under the advanced document library settings. The problem is that when I try to "add from existing site content types" the reporting services content types are not in the list. I appreciate any help you can give me.

Currency and number column error with office 2007 document formats in SharePoint 2010 library

Hi there,



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?
