Sharepoint 2010 Create Lookup List

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

New to Sharepoint 2010, and have little to no experience with Sharepoint 2007.

What I currently have is a page called "Customer List" that has a list of clients all entered with the wiki-type formatting. [[client name]]

This is what I'm after: Create a Customer List in a manner that it will create a link for a Customer Page/Site that can be edited with all their pertinent information. Being able to use the Customer List as a lookup source for the Issue Tracking module we're setting up.

Not necessarily married to using the wiki formatting. It's something that is currently in place. Ideally, we'd like to be able to go tot he Customer List, add a new entry, and it could automatically create a new Customer Profile Page based on a template we design. Then, once that customer is created, it automatically will add their name to the list that the Issue Tracking uses for the Customer lookup.

Can I create several steps to be run on a SharePoint list as a task to run on a daily basis?


We have a manual process that we do on a SharePoint list to export data from SharePoint to a spreadsheet that can then be used by non SharePoint programs.  I'd like to be able to automate this process so that it can be scheduled as a Task to run on a daily basis.   Not sure if a workflow can do what I'd like it to.  I have SharePoint Designer 2007 as well.

Here are the steps:

1. Load a particular View of a SharePoint List

2. From the view's Action menu, "Open with Access"

3. Save the resulting Access database as a file to a specific Folder on the computer hosting SharePoint

This would be run as a Task on the computer hosting SharePoint.
