Document CopyTo() Failed with "Value does not fall within the expected range"

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 19, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Hi there,

I have a very strange issue...when I want to copy document file from document library A to another B (in C# code - document.CopyTo(destinationUrl)) I get an error "Value does not fall within the expected range".

But when I want to copy document file backwards from B to A with the same code, it works!

So I made a test with SharePoint feature "Send To"...I select file in doc lib A and choose option Send To -> Other Location...here I selected doc lib B and click OK to copy the file, but the operation also failed with the error "Unable to contact the source server." if I make backwards operation (from B to A) it's works again!

Am I missing something or what? Both Document libraries are the same...I don't know where the problem is :\

Thanks for help!

SharePoint Workflow : Failed to Start when a document is added to library from server-side object mo


When I add a document using my server-side object model code, I get an exception "The type or namespace name 'Office' does not exist in the namespace 'Microsoft'" in the server logs and in the library I can see the Workflow status as "Failed to Start".





Interestingly, when I add a document to the same library from sharepoint site portal, it works just fine, the workflow kicks off with the state : in-progress.

Also, I modified the task form for the Approval workflow template from SharePoint Designer using infopath.(Not sure if that be a problem as adding from portal works fine.)

What am I missing out here??

Working with SharePoint document libraries

Document libraries are collections of files that you can share with team members on a Web based on Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services. For example, you can create a library of common documents for a project, and team members can use their Web browsers to find the files, read them, and make comments. Users with Microsoft Office 2003 can check out and edit the files as if they resided on a local or network drive.

By default, your team Web site comes with a built-in document library named Shared Documents, which is listed on the Quick Launch bar as well as on the Documents and Lists page.

jQuery $(document).ready() and ASP.NET Ajax asynchronous postback

Many call it the ASP.NET jQuery postback problem, but using the technique below should make it no problem anymore. $(document).ready() isn't called after an asynchronous postback. What this means? You lose the functionality that should be executed within $(document).ready() after an UpdatePanel rendered its contents after an asynchronous postback.

SharePoint Document Workspaces for Developers

Office 2003 is being released this month, and a cast of supporting applications is already available. One of these is Windows SharePoint Services 2.0, the free team add-on for Windows Server 2003. If you're not familiar with SharePoint Services basics, take a look at What Developers Need to Know About Windows SharePoint Services. In this article, I'm going to drill into one key place where SharePoint and Office 2003 overlap: document workspaces

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.

SharePoint document migration challenges when migrating files and folders

There are several challenges when migrating documents to Microsoft SharePoint. While these challenges can be overcome, they are a real pain if the migration source, content and file systems are not SharePoint friendly.

Failed to create AppDomain


Recently updated my system to use Visual Studio 2010, and projects will no longer compile. All of them give the error "Failed to create AppDomain." Intellisense does not work either (except for standard HTML tags), and individual pages will also not compile.

Points of note:

  • All sites are hosted on UNC shares (although it doesn't work on a new site created on local drive either)
  • Language is mostly C#
  • No explicit code is creating AppDomain objects
  • Sites compiled fine under both VS 2005 and 2008 both before and after VS 2010 installation
  • Sites compile and run fine from the IIS server on the remote machines (one IIS 6, one IIS 7)

Things I've tried (some obviously shouldn't have any bearing on it, but I've tried just about everything that anyone suggested on any forum I could find, most of which seemed to apply to IIS, not VS):

  • renaming/deleting security.config
  • running caspol -reset
  • re-registering asp.net: aspnet_regiis.exe -ua / aspnet_regiis.exe -i
  • removing VS 2005, 2008, 2010, and then re-installing just VS 2010
  • adding the UNC path to the local intranet zone (internet options control panel)
  • adding the UNC path to LocalIntranet_Zone in the ASP.Net 2.0 control panel (runtime security policy/machine/al

helped needed: ASP LDAP authentication failed in IE 8


I use the following code to do the user authentication through Active Directory using LDAP.

entry = new DirectoryEntry("LDAP://" + server, user_name, password);
if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(entry.Name))
EmployeeNetId = entry.Username.Substring(0, 3);

// Retrieve EmployeeId, and Employee Full Name
EmployeeId = -1;

It works for Chrome, Firefox with no problem. But with IE 8, it works sometimes, and failed on some computers. When it failed, I figured that I need to check SSL 2.0 in IE 8 Internet Options.  It's weird because in those computers that IE 8 works, SSL 2.0 is also unchecked.

Am I using some deprecated method? Or How do I specifiy the SSL version options in the LDAP connection?

WCF The Security Support Provider Interface (SSPI) negotiation failed

I'm having a doozy of a problem, and can't find a solution.  I have a WFC Web Service installed to a pair of servers, and accessed through a load balancer.  I am accessing the service from an ASP.NET client app, also via WCF.  The Client is not load balanced.
