Add page numbers for paging in data view web part


Hello all,

Has anyone found a solution that will allow me to have page numbers for paging in a data view web part. For instance, if I have 40 items/rows and I set the paging to display 10 items, I'd like the paging to show 1 2 3 4 rather than showing 1-10 and having to click next over and over to get to a specific item.

I found this article, but it is for 2003 and doesn't seem to apply to 2007 or if it does I am not able to really figure out how.


Please help!

Thanks in advance.

Unable to Show Edit item Links in Data Form Web Part

I have a DFWP connected to custom list and the boxes to Show Edit Item Links, Show Delete item links and Show Insert Item links are grayed out so that they can not be checked. This works fine when I use a DFWP connected to a standard list (i.e., Contacts). Is there something special that needs to be done to activate this functionality?ThanksDean

In data view web part - how to display document name with link that opens lookup document rather tha

I have a list with a lookup column to create relationships with documents in a separate library. I am creating a data view web part to display each item in the list. One of the fields I want to display is the document field (the lookup column). I want this to be in the form of the related document's name with link to directly open the source document itself (Word, PPT, ...). Now I am only managing to display the document name linked to opening the document's display form of the related document library, and then I have to click the document's name there to open it. Alas one unnecessary click too many. Any wize tips? Henning

Displaying a count of records in a Data View Web Part outside the web part itself?

I have a DVWP with 400 rows. I have these inside a Div tag, which makes it scrollable. I also have several URL filters set up to show certain records. I would like to add the count to the page to display the number of records when the filters are activated. I have added the View Footer to the DVWP but this just gets placed at the bottom (still inside the Div tag). It would also be cool to be able to do counts with criteria so I could do comparisons (ie, 50 records overdue/400 total etc). Thanks

format-number issues with the Data View Web Part in SharePoint 2010

I have a number column named @Year_x0020_1_x0020_Revenue in the data view web part in SharePoint Designer 2010. In the Xpath expression builder - @Year_x0020_1_x0020_Revenue previews "500,000" If I use the format-number in the Xpath expression builder ==> format-number(@Year_x0020_1_x0020_Revenue, '$#,##0.00;-$#,##0.00'), it returns NaN. Is there any reason? 

Data View Web Part in SharePoint Designer 2010

Is Data View Web Part (aka Data Form Web Part) in the SharePoint 2010 has changed from the SharePoint 2007 or Is it working differently in the SharePoint Designer 2010? In SharePoint Designer 2007, whenever you have data view web part on the page, there is little handle to click on the top right of the data view web part to show Common Common Data View Tasks. Also for each cell, there was a handle to show xsl:value-of tasks which was great for formatting. Is that option is gone in the SharePoint Designer 2010?

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.

Document Library and Data View - New Item


I want to add a Data View WebPart to upload a new document to a SharePoint Document Library.

What I'm aiming to do is to have a list item displayed on a page and then upload related files to a document library rather as list item "attachments".  So the user would come on to the page, see the list item and have an upload box underneath with all the document's metadata next to the upload  Can this be done using SPD?

I've had a quick look around and I'm suspecting the answer to this is "NO" but I thought I'd ask anyway.

(I'm thinking custom webpart)
