When Lookup Column of a List does not contain a value in the DropDown menu can it be added/inserted into the source Lookup List from the NewForm without leaving the NewForm?
Is there code or example how to insert the Item in the source List, then refresh/repopulate the Lookup Column's DropDown menu (in the NewForm)?
I have a calendar list that when an item is added I need to add a list item to an issues list and include the url of the item added in the original calendar list. I have the workflow that creates the list item in the issue list, but how can I obtain

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am running WSS 3.0 with other workflows which are functioning correctly.
I created a new workflow in Visual Studio 2008 and was able to successfully run it in my dev environment.
I attached the workflow to a task list in my dev environment and was able to manually start the workflow by using the drop down workflow option and using the menus to manually start it.
I installed this workflow in our production environment and attached it to the task list (which had a SPD workflow attached to it which stopped working about a month ago).
I made sure that the option to manually start the workflow was checked.
When I tried to manually start the workflow, (hover mouse over title, drop down) there isn’t a workflow option.
The workflow also will not start automatically when a task is changed.
I attached this same workflow to a different task list in production and get the option to start it.
I have tried creating a small workflow in SPD 2007 and attaching it to the task list.
It shows that it is attached, when I look at the workflows that are attached to the task list, but I still don’t get the option to manually start it.
I have checked my security and I have fu
1. What is the name of the field thats connect between the task item and the list name or guid and the list item id or guid
2. SPD: how can when starting the workflow how can i ensure that the initial form variables will be saved at the workflow task list
I'm using a workflow to assign tasks to users.ÃÂ When I try to assign the task to a group (set in the workflow designer), the workflow gives me an error.ÃÂ When I change the assign to property to a single user, the workflow works perfectly.ÃÂ How do I get the workflow to assign the task to the group?ÃÂ Or if that's not possible, can I get it to assign it to more than one user?Kenn
Is there anyway where we can use KPI list to attach to a SharePoint list and indicates which item was clicked the most ? Or any other way to find out the best 5 links based on how many times they were accessed by a user?
Thanks in advance
How the concurrent for sharepoint list item are are handled.
if two or more users are working on same item. Then how sharepoint process multiple update request for particular list item.
Suddenly sharepoint designer decided today that it doesn't want to insert a custom list form anymore...
To be more specific, it doesn't work anymore in a site that uses the Microsoft budgeting and tracking template. In a website that uses an out of the box template, it still works.
It did work before, because I did it in other websites using the same template (it's broken there as well now).
Why oh why does SharePoint refuse to do this now?
I searched google and here on the forums, but all I could find was some issues after installing SP1, but we did that already long time ago and it was still working after that. I checked with our infrastructure guys and they didn't install new updates they
I also tried the solutions listed here:
But they don't fix the problem.
So my problem is, I can go to Insert > SharePoint Controls > Custom List Form
I pick my list, content type and form type, I hit OK and... nothing happens.
doesn't any1 know the answer of my question?
i'm trying to create a data view with the edit, delete and insert function.
the edit and delete works fine. only the insert gives me this error:
The data source control failed to execute the insert command.
I have a list in which it is possible for one item to be related to another list item in the same list. I am trying make a column in the list which would contain a hyperlink to the related list item. The primary column is called Bill Number,
and the secondary column is Companion Bill Number . The Companion Bill Number is the one I want to be a hyperlink to the list time in which that number is the primary Bill Number. (hope that made sense!).
I thought I could create a hypertext link out of the Companion Bill Number dynamically in a workflow action that runs on item creation. I tried this by using the string builder to create a string for the hypertext link that I set to a workflow variable.
It looks like this <a href="listURL.aspx?ID=[%Bill:CompanionBill%]">[%Bill:CompanionBill%]. Then in another action in the same workflow I tried to set the CompanionBill column to the variable value.
What I ended up with was, instead of the number as a hyperlink, the text in the column reads as [%Bill:CompanionBill%]. I'm thinking this is failing because of the workflow process doesn't have the value of CompanionBill at the time I am asking it
to set the variable value.
Any ideas on how I might make this dynamic link creation work?
This is a recent issue that I have in which I have a "Issue Tracking" List that maintains the workflow of contract renewals.
When an person goes to edit an existing list entry, the description field (standard) has the original text in the box. Prior to this the original - or any older text from a prior change was listed outside and just below the box - and non editable.
That's not the case anylonger.
I have to migrate data from SQL DB to SP list. But its old data and some users who created/modified the record has been deleted from the AD. Now I need to set the CreatedBy / ModifiedBy Field of the item accordingly. How to achieve this?
And when I tried to modify the "Editor" and "Author" field through Object Model, it works. But its not working through Webservice. What is the reason behind this?
Please help me find an optimal solution for this...
