SharePoint add converted document as new version on original file

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 11, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint


I am implementing a custom SharePoint Document Converter. What I want is the Document Converter Framework to add the converted document as a new version of the original document.

In other words: I want to convert "test.doc" into "test.pdf" and "test.pdf" must not be added as a new file (listitem), but as a new version of "test.doc".

How can I accomplish this?

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.

how do I pass in a standard xml+xsl to be converted through the Sharepoint 2010 Document Conversion

How do I pass in a standard xml+xsl to be converted through the Sharepoint 2010 Document Conversion? Via the SDK I have been able to code a c# workflow that converts word files in a Sharepoint 2010 Document Library (docx,dox, word.xml) to PDF successfully but want to pass in an xml+xsl file to this engine if possible. Actually I have xml, xsl, and if needed xsl-fo files to deal with but would be happy if I could figure out how to make the Document Conversion engine do the xml+xsl transform and then send that to a doc file in Sharepoint.

ASP:Upload control . Uploading into a SharePoint Document Library Subfolder and FILE NOT FOUND error

RE: ASP:Upload control . Uploading into a SharePoint Document Library Subfolder and FILE NOT FOUND error Two Issues, apparently unrelated. I have subfolders like this /ApplicantDocuments/20 and /ApplicantDocuments/21 (where 20 and 21 are my subfolders and ApplicantDocuments is my library. 1. The below function is erroring with file not found, but I confirmed I'm sending the fully qualify path (i.e c:\test.txt) to System.IO.FileStream content = System.IO.File.Open(documentFileName, System.IO.FileMode.Open); 2. Even if it worked, looking at the code, I'm not using argument foldername.  I'm passing 20 to the argument. How can I make sure it uploads into subfolder 20 of ApplicantDocuments? Thank you.     Just testing in test environment. Will tighten code once it works.   public void UploadDocumentToSite(string foldername, string documentFileName) {      SPSite siteCollection = new SPSite("https://xxxxxx");      SPWeb web = siteCollection.OpenWeb();      //SPSite.AllowUnsafeUpdates = true;      //Web.AllowUnsafeUpdates = true;      string Lib = "ApplicantDocuments";      SPFolder destFolder = web.GetFolder(Lib);      sendmail(documentFileName+" "+foldername);  

Document Library version restore not behaving as expected on the "Name" column (file name)


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 ?


Downloading a document from a sharepoint site to local file system, copy web service returns null

Hi Guys,
               I am trying to get this done for the last 2 days and I am still banging my head to the wall.
All I need to do is to download files from my sharepoint site library that uses integrated windows authentication. I was using copy webservice : getItem method to accomplish this.

CopyService.GetItem(copySource, out myFieldInfoArray, out myByteArray);

Problem : myByteArray is always returned as NULL

Note: I have tried the same with another site that uses forms authentication but the result was the same (NULL !!)

This is my code:


Copy copy = new CopyService.Copy();


View previous version of a file in document library using Client Object Model




Using Server-side object model, it is pretty simple to get the previous file versions. Say I wanted to view a file in its initial version, all I’d need to do is :




When using Client object model, I couldn’t any analogous method/property which would let me fetch the previous version of file.

Can somebody point me to a sample or the property which would serve my purpose?

I am wanting to migrate a number of existing documents into sharepoint so they can be version managed.  However, most of these documents are already up to version 10 etc (on a manual system), I am wanting to start the versioning in sharepoint at a particular version instead of 1.  Has anyone done this?

2010 SharePoint global setting for document Library version control?


Apparently new Document Libraries created in Sharepoint are no longer set up the way we would like as far as version control.  Is there any way to set up SP so that any new document library created has specific settings, through Central admin control?

Recover last version of file properties in MOSS document library


After an overwrite to several hundred files we need a quick way to either restore the entire file to the previous version or ideal just the custom property fields.

I tried to find a way to script a query into the document library and collect the previous version custom data into an excel spreadsheet but could not find a solution.

I came across this post that indicated he was able to restore only the file properties but retained the current version (which was not his gold but would be mine).


He included a snippet of his code:

Would this work? is there a powershell equivalent?

Whats the easies way to make this code into a useful solution.


int versionCount = item.Versions.Count;
if (versionCount > 0)
// this only restores properties
