Invalid URL"" after copy or move a document.

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 26, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint


We have an website that have 3 libraries. The "first Library" is used only to edit documents and it's called "my documents". When a user finish of edit your documents here, they start a workflow that will check fields in the document and move the document for the second library (using Sharepoint Designer Workflow - without custom actions).
In "second library" we have a big workflow. This WF has some steps for approve, collect feedback, generate sub-tasks and others things related for the document. This WF use many custom actions in (Sharepoint Designer).
When this WF arrives to the end, the document is moved to "third library", that is a official repository of documents in the enterprise.
The entire cycle works fine. But when someone creates a internal copy of the document in the "first library" to begin again the flow, we receive a Invalid Url error. It occurs when any update operations is executed over the document item, the value is conserved but the error is displayed. After it, we can not execute other workflows over the item.
If we save the document in local disk, delete the library item, and then upload it again, the problem is solved.

Some one have an idea about why and how solve it?  We are using WSS 3.0.

The following is an error registred in log file when you d

User group invalid for new document



Defined a user group and a site column of type people/group directing to this group.

Also defined a content type and added the site column to this content type.

When I create a new word document of this content type, word opens displaying my site column ok. But when I enter it, I see that all active directory (AD) entries are displayed. I want it to display only those users I added to the user group I created. Moreover, users can select any user from AD, which makes defining a user group and a site column meaningless.

This problem is only in creating new documents with Word. If I edit properties of an already existing document in my site, everything is ok: I can select only the users in the group.


Check-out issue when opening a document from a document library when a read-only copy is open

We have an issue when a user has a read-only copy of a document from SharePoint open and then tries to check-out and edit another copy of the document (i.e. from the document library) the checked out copy is not connected to the web server. For the user it will look the same they will make edits, save and then close, but when they do so the document is not updated in SharePoint - it may be saved locally in their SP drafts, but the user will think that they have lost their version. We then get the checked out to another user error and you have to discard changes to get the document working again. Steps to reproduce this issue: * click on the name of a office doc on a Document Library * Make sure "Read Only" is selected and click "ok" * Minimize open document * click on the same file on the Document Library * Make sure "check out and edit" is selected and the "Use my local drafts folder" checkbox is ticked. Select OK. * Edit document and press save. Changes are never saved back in SharePoint, they are only on the local draft. We are using MOSS with SP2. Clients are on Office 2003 and 2007 Is this normal behaviour? Is there anything that can be done to prevent this from happening?

Sharepoint 2010 Workflow to copy a document

I want to create a workflow where: When a document is modified, it is copied to a new folder. I can do this with the "copy list item" action, but it only allows me to select certain lists (document libraries for example), instead of being able to give a full pathname to a folder.  What's the correct action to copy the Current Item to specific folder within the same library.  Or alternately, to create a list that IS the correct folder. Thanks, -Mike

Hi Guys,

copy / move pdf file in documents library sharepoint 2010



I have a document library that contains many folders with different documents.

The library contains various content types.

When I try to copy or move a pdf document from folder to another  folder. the pdf document is copied, but without his meta-data.
 and the content type the file becomes to  default content type of system, to  "document."

Copying is done by explorer window
 (ie the documents library open the document library explorer Explorer And where we do copying or moving documents .)

It should be noted that when doing "copy to" or "move to" of documents and type Microsoft Office the meta- data yes  copied properly.

The problem applies only to the pdf files.

How do I make a copy or move of the pdf document with his meta-data  by explorer window?

Move SharePoint Document Library Files to Local Drive

How can I move files uploaded into a MOSS 2007 Document library to a local drive? I need to automate this as a job, not a one-time process. Can I use SSIS for it? File Systems Task works fine so long as I create a map drive to the portal. I have tried both the http address and the UNC path to the portal.
