Deleting items simultaneously in two different site library

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 12, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Hi experts,

I have create a workflow to copy item (documents)  in site A library to site B library, its worked fine when i run the workflow, both library can contains same documents.

But the problem is, i can't set the workflow to deleting both items. I create a delete item workflow but it doesnt work for both, it can only work for 1 library. Is there possibility for me to create a workflow that can delete both item when i run the workflow in designated library, for example, from Site A, i run a workflow to delete a document in Site A, which will delete in Site B too.

I have googled but i can't find the best way, might as well you familiar with the works and can guide me.

Thanks so much!

Deleting items from the index (custom protocol handler)

I created a custom protocol handler. I successfully emit entries into the index. I just can't seem to delete them during an incremental crawl.

I tried:

1. no emitting child item during the enumeration of child entries in a folder
2. returning PRTH_E_OBJ_NOT_FOUND from CreateAccessorEx

doing either 1, 2, or both did nothing. The entries are still there.

what i need to do to delete these entries from the index during an incremental crawl?


Search does not find text in Word document stored in document library on a Report Center site within



We have a document library on a site created off of the Report Center site template. We uploaded a Word 2007 document with the word zebra in the text. Using the search bar at the top of the page we selected This list: Our document library and searched for zebra. We received no results.

We tested the same thing on another site (site template Team site) within the same site collection and search worked fine.

Does the Report Center search function differently then the search functionality on the Team site?

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).

Unable to create columns in document library after applying custom master page to site

Hi, I have applied a custom master page to a site.There is a document library in it. I am unable to add columns in it or change the default view.Nothing happens when I click on OK butoon after making my changes. However the columns are created/default view is changed when I apply the default master page.

New Document Library in a subsite is inheriting permissions from wrong site

I have a site collection (using the out-of-the-box Business Intelligence site template) called "BI Home". A couple weeks ago I created a bunch of subsites (Finance, Regulatory, Marketing, etc.) all using the BI site template, and then created a Document Library called "Reports" in each one of those subsites. Those are all working as expected. Yesterday I needed to create a new subsite (again, a BI site just off the root site collection) called "Operations". I created the subsite, and then created the "Reports" document library underneath it.  When I went to modify the permissions of the new document library (located here: /Operations/Reports), it said it was inheriting permissions from it's parent: "BI Home".  Why would this be?  Shouldn't the parent be "Operations" ?? All my other sites' "Reports" folders are inheriting permission from their respective parent, but any new sites I create seem to have this issue. Thanks in advance for any insight someone may provide! [SharePoint 2010 RTM on Win2k8R2 using SQL 2008R2 RTM on Win2k8R2]

Customize SharePoint Library Menu Items

Hi, In a library with file, the menu items available for any file is: View Properties, Edit Properties, Manage Permissions, Edit in <ApplicationName>, Delete, Send To, Check Out, Workflows, Alert Me . Now, I want to get rid of Edit Properties, Manage Permissions, Edit in <ApplicationName>, Delete, Check Out . Added to this is the need to remove the option in the Actions menu that states "Open With Windows Explorer " and finally the "Upload " menu is to go out. Any JScript for this or a file I need to edit to get this result? I need this because the business wants it out, its bordering on security.

Site templates and Library Labels

I have been having an issue with labels and a document library... I have a created a document library...docs, with a new site content type ...doc1 If I then save site as a template....works fine. However, the template I have for the content type doc1, has a Quick Part (label) added to it to show the document version number on the document. In order for this to pass from the library to the document, I need to activate labels on the list through the Information Management policy settings on the library. I have done this  and got the template working correctly, updating the version number within the document. But, now if I save site as a template I get the error...   Error Error exporting the list named "Docs" at the URL: Docs Troubleshoot issues with Microsoft SharePoint Foundation. Correlation ID: ea226ba4-0a68-4cfb-9b6f-c557f4ec8ab6 I have tried saving the template at every stage and it is fine up until I turn on the Label option. Any ideas?

View All Site Content Showing the wrong number of items

NOTE:  Similar post also had no answer: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepointecm/thread/f775ba0d-648f-4be3-9017-78539915b281/ I am the Site Collection Administrator/and also tried logging in using Farm Account.  I go into View All Site Content and I show 15 documents.  When you actually go to the All Items view (and I double-checked, no filtering), you only find 9 documents.  Versioning is not turned on.  I am a developer, so I also used the Web Service to try to troubleshoot.  The Lists.asmx web service shows an Item Count of 15 using the GetList method.  However, using the GetListItems method, the item Count reports 9 items, which is what I see in my browser. Is there an stsadm command that I can run that will "true up" this number being reported in View All Site Content? Thanks in advance. - Update -  MOSS 2007 v 3.0 server farm.

Hidden site column shows as 'optional' in created document library

In Sharepoint 2007, I created multiple site content types.  From these I created other content types based on the original site content types.  To these second group of content types I added a site column which is hidden.  I craeted a document library and saved it as a template.  I then created a new document library using teh document library template.  When I then look at the hidden column for the content types in the document library, the previously hidden column in the default content type is now 'optional'.  The hidden column in the other content types is still showing as hidden.  Any clues as to why?  Thanks in advance.

Only fiew part of document library in site page



I'm trying to create a site page containing a part of a document library. I've added a data view web part to my page and then I can see all documents and folders of the library on the site page.

Problem is that I only want to see documents and subfolders that are in a specific folder of the library. I've tried to set the folder scope in designer to "Show only files of a specific folder", but I don't know where to specify the folder. Then I tried to do the same using a filter on the path, but this doesn't work with a "greather then" filter.

Has anyone tried to do the same and how?

Thanks  a lot!
