Missing Completed Workflows History

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 14, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Hello all:


I cannot find any workflow histories on approved documents that were approved 2 months or more ago.  The document status says its approved but there are no histories showing under "Completed Workflows."  Is there some kind of retention policy in MOSS 2007?  This is causing a major auditing issue for us.  Where can I retrieve this history information from?  Are they gone for good?


Thanks in advance!

Missing "Workflows" folder in Sharepoint Designer

Any idea whats the problem with this?

For some reason the "Workflows" folder just gone missing, I could not see it in sharepoint designer, it seems that it is hidden, because the workflows I created previously are still in there and functioning well.  I tried to create a new workflow hoping that it will fix the problem but instead I got an "Access Denied" error message.

I got full control to the site and my permission was never been changed ever since.

Thanks in advance.

SharePoint 2007 Workflows - Things to Consider Before You Start

SharePoint 2007 (MOSS) utilizes the Workflow Foundation (WF) to enable workflows on lists and content types. But before you start doing cartwheels there are few things you should know before you get started. The experiences I'll be discussing are not from book smarts but from building real MOSS solutions that are in production today.

Content Query Web Part missing in SharePoint 2010

If you don't see content query web part listed in the web parts list, this is because you have not enabled "Search Server Web Parts" feature in site collection features. Enable this feature and content query web part will show in the list of web parts.

Missing 'new item templates'


 Hi all,

          I am a 'newbie' to VWD and I am slowly working through the Basic Walkthrough Help files, and learning plenty along the way.

However, when I tried to create a new database in the LINQ control walkthrough I found that the option to create a new database is missing, and further investigation has found that many other new item templates are missing.

I am using a brand new machine with Windows 7 Ultimate and have enabled IIS and .NET from Control Panel-Programs-Turn Windows Features On-Off. I used the WPI to install all basic elements eg. IIS Components, SQL Server Express.

The only 'new item templates' I have when I right-click the App_Data Folder and choose 'new item' are:-

ADO.NET Data Service

AJAX Enabled WCF Service

Dynamic Data Field

SQL Server Database

Text File

XML File

Does anyone know where I have gone wrong.

All my server-controls became unrecognized!!! like there's compilation error or web.config missing!



please help - the problem is in post subject.

I have lots of warnings with following text:

"Warning 10 Element 'HyperLink' is not a known element. This can occur if there is a compilation error in the Web site, or the web.config file is missing. C:\Users\Pavel\Documents\Visual Studio 2010\WebSites\BioWebSite\ToScientist.aspx 26 18 C:\...\BioWebSite\" 

But web.confg is there! And there's no compilation error!

Site builds just fine. And If I upload it to my hoster - it works!


But with all these errors I cant add controls to pages - VS2010 adds hyperlink without ID, and intelisens stoped to work.

Strange, but in my other project (web-application) I have no such difficuty.
