Why am I missing option to delete lists and libraries?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 10, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I just setup my first SharePoint 2010 site using the Publishing Site template. I seem to be missing the option to delete libraries. From what I understand, the option should be listed under Permissions and Management Settings on the List/Library Settings page. However, I don't have this option... I am logged in with an account that has Full Control permission.

What am I missing? Thanks!

Updating Task Lists and Form Libraries From Workflow Form


There are actually two separate (I think) problems here. The scenario: I used the SharePoint Designer 2007 to create a workflow attached to a form library. When a form is submitted to the library, a To-Do-Item is created on a task list. The To-Do-Item is initially assigned to a GROUP. A user from the group then selects the name of an individual from a choice list in edit item. This person now becomes the Assigned To for the task.

What is needed is 1) To update the Assigned To column of the Form library when someone in the GROUP assigns the task to an INDIVIDUAL; and 2) To have the Due Date from the submitted InfoPath form propagate to the task list.

I've tried having one workflow try to do everything and also having a secondary workflow set up on the task list to do the task assignment update but have not been successful in solving either issue. I don’t think that I am really understanding how to Define Workflow Lookup when not working with the Current Item. I know what fields I want but I don’

Cannot delete rows in a list via Lists web service's UpdateListItems-function, even though I am abl

Hi all, I'm trying to delete some rows in a SharePoint 2010 Foundation list via Lists.asmx -web service's UpdateListItems. The web service is called from BizTalk. I am able to create rows, but for some reason delete fails. I also use "GetListItems"-function without problems. The exception I get is Microsoft.SharePoint.SoapServer.SoapServerException. The message is "Cannot access a closed Stream." The updates-element of the UpdateListItems-function is as follows (well, a part of it, the real one has more Method-elements, but you get the gist..): <Batch OnError="Continue" ListVersion="1"> <Method ID="1" Cmd="Delete"> <Field name="ID">1900</Field> <Field name="IMEI">GFA-687</Field> </Method> <Method ID="2" Cmd="Delete"> <Field name="ID">1901</Field> <Field name="IMEI">OVG-567</Field> </Method> <Method ID="3" Cmd="Delete"> <Field name="ID">1902</Field> <Field name="IMEI">OXI-570</Field> </Method> </Batch> I've also tried that Batch without the IMEI-information, as well as with a valid ViewName. Why cannot I delete when I can clearly modify/create rows - what's up with th

Gridview and delete option - Button click displays message

Event handler to delete minor versions in document libraries

Hi Is there a way we can capture the deletion of minor versions in document libraries using any event handler. May not be using the delete all the minor versions but at least when we use the option to delete the selected minor version. I do not see the ItemUpdating and ItemUpdated getting fired in this case. Thanks wpwije  

WSS Lists - Lookup field information missing in Excel 2010

Hi, I've got this xls workbook which contains a two-way synchronized SharePoint list. This WSS list contains columns which are related to other lists: for instance the list we're using is a list of assignments, where an assignment is related to an accounting period. Our server also has another list with all accounting periods. Both lists are related since the assignment list as an accounting period column of lookup type which uses the accounting period list as a source. In previous versions of Excel, the output is that the accounting period field is a combobox populated with all availalble accounting periods. Thanks to that, the user can easily link an assignment to an accounting period by selecting a value in this combobox and synchronizing. This works great with Excel 2003 and 2007, however in 2010 (same workbook, consuming the same lists) related information doesn't appear. The combobox is empty and as a consequence the user gets a data validation error since the value in the cell isn't among available values. Is there something special I should do to enable this feature in Excel 2010? Regards, Carl

Visual Studio 2008 Web Test Option Missing

I initially installed Visual Studio 2008 Developer edition.  I then installed Visual Studio 2008 Suite edition, with 2008 Developer edition still on the PC.  When attempting to create a new Web Test, this option is not available to select when adding a new test in the solution.  The steps I followed: 1) Create new Project:  Test Project 2) Add "New Test" 3) At this point I would expect "Web Test" to be an option, I only have Ordered Test, Unit Test, and Unit Test Wizard.   Do I need to uninstall Visual Studio 2008 and start with a clean Visual Studio 2008 Suite to get the "Web Test" option to show?

Creating a generic template writer that can handle drop downs and option lists


If I have a the following model

public class User
		public List<Company> Companies;
		public string Login { get; set; }

		[DisplayName("First Name")]
		public string FirstName { get; set; }

		[DisplayName("Last Name")]
		public string LastName { get; set; }

		public string Password { get; set; }

		private int Company { get; set; }

And the following generic control template writer (which would have to be extended appropriately)

<%@ Control Language="C#" Inherits="System.Web.Mvc.ViewUserControl" %>
<% foreach (var prop in ViewData.ModelMetadata.Properties .Where(pm => pm.ShowForEdit && !ViewData.TemplateInfo.Visited(pm))) 
{ %>
	<div class="SD_FieldItem">
		<% if (!String.IsNullOrEmpty(Html.Label(prop.PropertyName).ToHtmlString()))
			switch (prop.ModelType.Name)
				case "Boolean":

						<div class="SD_BoolField">
							<%= Html.CheckBox(prop.PropertyName) %>
							<%= Html.Label(prop.PropertyName) %>
							<%= Html.ValidationMessage(prop.PropertyName, 

"More" option for Summary view on lists


I'm not sure if this is the correct area to post this question or if it's more of a design question but...

I noticed with 2010 that when lists such as announcements and links get beyond a certain quantity that the Summary view within the webpart shows a "More" link even if the webpart is set to only show say 5 items.

I've checked the XSL stylesheets and can't find any entries that would specify to show the More link once a list grew to a certain point. I've also checked the web part, list, and view settings to no avail. Any suggestions?

Business Data Item Builder Missing "Connections" menu option.


On the Business Data Item Builder menu there is typically an option that says "Connections" and then you can connect the item builder to a Business Data Item Web Part. Our Business Data Item Web part is set up properly and our ADF file (and query string) is unchanged, but the Connections option has disappeared. Any help or insight into this issue is much appreciated.

Unable to access Libraries/Lists when logged in as Owner


I'll start at the beginning...

  • SharePoint 2010 Ent. running on Server 2008 R2 Ent. x64. on ESXi 4.1.
  • 8GB RAM with 4 processors (virtual)

I followed the TechNet instructions for pre-install guidelines to the letter, ran the prequisites part of the install and had zero errors (everything installed successfully). I performed a stand alone install, using for IT Department at the moment. Followed everything to the letter and had no issues. Once complete I could access the Central Admin area, had three flagged issues appear. All I fixed via TechNet instructions.

Yes, I've rebooted several times.

As the Admin I am able to access the Team site I had it create and create lists etc. I went on to create a sub site and gave it unique permissions, no errors. I then created lists in the sub site without any issues. I then assigned my normal user account as a 'Home Owner' and was able to access the team site. I then gave my normal user account 'IT Owner' (unique permission group for sub site) and it allowed me access to sub site. 

When I try and access settings I get the following error popup...

   File Not Found.

Option to Group By: Content Type is missing from view settings.


In testing for migrating/upgrading our WSS 3.0 environment to SharePoint 2010, I have noticed that there is no longer an option to group list items by the Content Type column in view settings.  Is this by design, or a known issue that still needs to be fixed?  This is using the recent SharePoint 2010 Enterprise RTM.
