SharePoint 2010: Importing a list or document library into a NEW list or library (.cmp)

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

Hello All,

I am trying to migrate from SharePoint 2007 to SharePoint 2010.  My company's current setup has seen very limited use because we have previously been a mulitple-content-management provider shop, but there are some content items we wish to re-use.  We also want to completely redesign our SharePoint setup to better suit the needs of our business, and the various departments.

My problem, therefore, is the seeming fact that you can apparently EXPORT granular backups down to the list and document library level, but when you try to IMPORT those lists, it gives you static.

Steps:

Database-Attach upgrade MOSS2007 content databases into a SharePoint 2010 web application

In Central Administration | Backup and Restore | Granular Backup:  Export a site or list, choosing whichever list from a site that has content in it.

in PowerShell, attempt the command Import-SPWeb -identity <url|GUID> -path <location of .cmp file created above> -force -verbose

I have attempted looking up the list in the content database for the new site to find its GUID, and also putting the URL of the list, down to the .aspx page it is viewed at.

So at this point I am wondering if what I am trying to accomplish is even possible with out-of-the-box SP2010 functionality.  Is it?  If not I ask the universe "wh

I have so far been able to import the list data, and unfortunately the web forms etc. that come with it.

I have a problem with that because I believe the .aspx pages that are copied in cause massive errors (I can no longer view the site after import).

Specifically, the problem: importing the absences list from a MOSS2007 Fab40 Absence tracking p

Compare InfoPath Form Field to Document Library list in SharePoint

  

I have an infopath form that has a field that matches values in a SharePoint List. In the SharePoint List I have two fields, One is email and the other is the field I am trying to match on. When the form is submitted I want to take that field from the form and compare it to the SharePoint list and return the email that is associated with that list item. Can this be done?? I appreciate any assistance. Thank you.


Cannot add SQL Server 2008 R2 Report items to SharePoint Server 2010 document library

  
Using account which is the primary parent site administrator, can upload RDS and RDL files to the document library (however, cannot open report). User is also a domain admin with SA on the database instances. Cannot add Report Data Source with "New Document" icon. The permissions granted to user '[domain]\[user]' are insufficient for performing this operation. Under "Site Settings", "Managed Shared Schedules" fails with same error. Attempting to deploy from BIDS results in the same permissions error. Sharepoint Server 2010, Report Server 2008 R2. RS and SP databases hosted on remote server (SQL Server 2008 R2). All connections (SharePoint services, RS services, users) except SQLAgent authenticating to remote SQL Server with Kerberos (all SPNs look correct). Single site, site collection "/". Document directory called "Reports". Windows Integrated Security (Negotiate). How would I troubleshoot/solve problem?

Upload documents to Sharepoint 2010 Document library

  
Is there a way to upload documents to an SP 2010 document library with Custom Actions or Workflows?  I have a requirement of taking the contents of several directories (older data files) and uploading them to Sharepoint.  Not sure which actions actually perform this operation.  Any help most greatly appreciated.

Item/Document permissions affect Library/List permissions

  
When I change the permissions on a item/document in a library/list the permissions are also changed on the library/list even though I stopped inheritance.  When I change the permissions on the library/list it also changes permissions on items/documents in that list even if inheritance is removed.

Updating an InfoPath Form Library Template breaks preexisting SharePoint List Views

  
When updating an InfoPath template (e.g. adding a new field), any views I have created on the library lose their filters and sorting, as if the columns on which they were built no longer exist.  Has anyone else encountered this and, if so, is there a solution? V/r Noelle

Office 2010 can not integrate with Sharepoint Server 2010 document library, both RTM

  
Hi I have one standalone SharePoint Server 2010 and Office 2010 on Windows Server 2008 SP2. Both SharePoint and Office are RTM. When I create new document from the document library, it can open the Office Word.  When I save the document, Office gives me the local browser dialog other than remote sharepoint library. When I try to enter the sharepoint site url in the dialog, it tells me: path does not exist. On another machine, Windows 7, the Office 2010 RTM can open and save docs from/into the document library. There seems something wrong with the Office client. Maybe someone can tell me how to fix it. Thanks.

InfoPath list definition of type Document Library

  
Is there a way to create a list definition that is a document Library and deploy to SharePoint 2010 that is based on a InfoPath form?  Meaning that it will deploy and if I select the "add new item" link it will automatically open a new InfoPath form that a user can submit?  I have the infopath forms created already but I need a way to create the form library through visual studio so I can promote through our test and production environment and have it automatically and deploy to the different environments and create the proper list structure.

Intercept Check-In Event of Document Library in SharePoint 2010

  
we need to intercept the default check-in Event of the Document Library. The detailed requirements is as follows.   1. Intercept the check-in Event of Document Library. 2. Instead of the default check-in  page (normally this is the layout's checkin.aspx page), show our custom application page. 3. In the custom application page, allow users to provide some inputs. Validate the input values against values stored in database. 4. Once validated successfully, allow user to check-in the documents. Else, do not allow user to check-in the document.   One more additional requirement is the above things should happen only for our custom content type. In order to achieve the same, we are planning for deploying our custom document content types and perform the above operations on check-in event of the documents.     Another approach of performing the same is , have our own custom ECB Menu. The detailed process is as below.   a. Customize the check in menu (ECB) b. Show the custom form and get the inputs from user and do the validations c. On the OK button click, if validation is success, then update the meta data and check in the document or deny the process. d. But in this approach, we need to check the libraries version settings and that default functionalities should be added automatically to the check in process.   At this point of time, we a

List lookup to document library not showing folder names

  
Hi all, I've got a Sharepoint List, which has a lookup field to a Document Library on the same site. That document library library is populated with several folders, each with several Word documents within. I want my lookup (in the List) to only display the top level folders in the document library. I managed to do that in my test environment. But in my production environment doesn't list the folder names. I've compared the settings in the two and they look identical. What could be wrong, and how to I fix it so that the folder names appear? I'm using SharePoint 2007. Thanks in advance for the help.
