Overview – We are building a Mobile Web Site using SharePoint 2007. The big screen site has been already built and we need to integrate the
mobile site into same site collection of big screen –
The Mobile site will use the existing content types of existing big screen site
We will build a new custom Master page
Connected SQL data table to SP 2010 ECT from SQL table. The SQL table has several fields that have a type of "numeric(3,0)". The SP 2010 list shows all fields form SQL. When we open up InfoPath Designer and reference the SP List data (from
SQL) all of our numer fields are missing from the available fields list.
I amd going to try another data type but that hardly feels like a solution. If anyone has any ideas please let me know!
I have a SharePoint Designer 2010 resuable workflow that uses the "Start Approval Process" Task Action. This workflow needs to run
after a document has been declared a record. So I have a Content Type that has an Information Management Policy (IMP) attached to it. And I have 2 retention stages specified in the IMP. The first retention stage action is to run the
workflow. And this Content Type is associated with the Document Library containing the records. But for some reason, the SPD workflow never gets triggered. The document has been successfully declared as a record. I also see in the document's "Compliance Details"
screen, the "Scheduled Occurrence Date" is set to the proper date, but the workflow never got started on that date. I tried it with different dates that I set in the document, to ensure that the workflow runs on "Scheduled Occurence" dates such as 11/19/2010,
11/20/2010 to no avail.
What am I missing? Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated as always.
I'm trying BCS on an SQL table which contains about 300,000 rows. Following is what I've observed:
1. A "SELECT * FROM <TABLE>" query fired on the SQL Table using SQL Management Studio returns all the result in
2. The same data when accessed by browsing the default view of external list (to which an External Content Type (ECT) built over the same SQL table in SharePOint Designer 2010 is attached) takes about
If I edit the ECT (using SharePoint Designer) and set limit as 100,000, it takes about
49 seconds to load, and further reduction in limit reduces the time to load.
My questions are:
1. What is it that causes so much delay in accessing the rows, as SQL delivers them in 12 seconds? Can anyone please help me understand the BCS / ECT architecture- how it accesses data, etc.
2. Can I implement paging in ECTs created using SharePoint Designer 2010?
Any help shall highly be appreciated. Thans in advance!
Hi there, we are creating custom content types that inherit from the "Page" content type. We have found that we must have the "Inherits" property set to "TRUE" or else our custom content types do not show up in the content type gallery. If we
query the site collection using management shell the content type does appear to be there, but unfortunately it will not publish from the content type hub. If we set Interits=TRUE the content type deploys properly and appears in the content type
gallery, but we cannot override (change the display name) or remove any of the inherited fields. Ultimately, we would like to have our content types inherit from "Page" and also override some of the "Page" fields, but this does not appear
to be possible. We have spent quite a bit of time on this issue and are wondering if this is a bug or intential behavior of the "Page" content type. Any information you can provide would be appreciated?
P.S. We have ran similar tests inheriting from "Document" and "Item" content types and do not encounter the same issue with overriding inherited fields.
I followed the MSDN example in how to create a custom webservice that integrates with sharepoint at
I'm able to successfully call the custom webservice it walks you through from internet explorer out of a sharepoint 2010 site using a URL such as

In Visual Studio 2010 (running on the same hardware server as sharepoint 2010), I am able to bring up the same custom webservice in the add web reference using the advanced buttons of the add service reference dialog. But, when the custom webservice

I am trying to deploy two custom list definitions using only one single feature. Below are the details of my issue.
When I deploy my solution in this configuration, the second list definition gets the first custom content type applied to it and the list schema from the first list definition is also applied to the second list definition.
What makes this more interesting, when I seperate both of the list definitions under two seperate features it all works fine. Custom content types and list schemas get applied correctly.
Can anyone tell me why I can not deploy both list definitions under one single feature?
If you need me to post any of the origional code or XML to this post please let me know.
