Custom SSIS Data Flow Component Not Showing in Toolbox or GAC

Hello - I have created a very simple data flow component for SSIS (Actually, I am following this example:  http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=1C2A7DD2-3EC3-4641-9407-A5A337BEA7D3&displaylang=en).  However, when I register the DLL to the GAC, I am unable to find the assembly in C:\Windows\Assembly - even though the GACUTIL says "Assembly Registered Successfully".  Furthermore, after copying the DLL to the PipelineComponents folder for SSIS (C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\100\DTS\PipelineComponents), it does not show in the "Choose Items . . ." dialog box of SSIS.   I am running SQL Server 2008 Dev edition, Visual Studio 2010 with .NET 4.0, and Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit edition.  Any assistance/thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks!

Search - How to remove a meta tag ... / custom column is not showing up in Crawled Properties after

Hi I got the following warning after I crawled a site. Info out of Crawl Log: "The content for this address was excluded by the crawler because this item was marked with a no-index meta-tag. To index this item, remove the meta-tag and recrawl." Sound easy but I don't no where I could do it. The other problem is that I try to get a custom column from a custom list showing up in the crawle properties. I am using also a custom scope with the behavior "INCLUDE" ... In MOSS 2007 it was a lot simpler ;-) Thanks Regards MIA    

List Event Receivers firing for all custom lists

Hello, I have a site with two custom lists, and I have created an EventReceiver class to handle the ItemAdded event for custom lists. I have modified the EventReceiver's Elements.xml file to only handle items added to one of the custom lists instead of all custom lists, by changing: <Receivers ListTemplateId="100"> to <Receivers ListUrl="/Lists/MyCustomList">   however, when debugging, the ItemAdded method is being fired when an item is added in both custom lists. I have had to work around this by checking within the ItemAdded method for the list that fired the event:        public override void ItemAdded(SPItemEventProperties properties)        {            base.ItemAdded(properties);            if (properties.ListTitle.Equals("My Custom List")) { ... } I thought the ListUrl attribute of the Receivers element specifies the event to only fire for the specific list with that url? (see http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms431081.aspx). Is there somewhere else I should be checking?   Thanks

Unable to Customize Custom Lists. Sharepoint Error: User cannot be found.

I am not sure what the best way to put/describe my issue . I am unable to customize my custom list. Steps: 1. Login to sharepoint site. 2. Site Actions -> Site Settings 3. Under Site Administration -> Site Libraries and lists 4. Clicked on a custom list.   Error: Error User cannot be found.   Troubleshoot issues with Microsoft SharePoint Foundation. Correlation ID: 4063bf58-9cb7-4204-8cc4-cc2889abffe3 Date and Time: 9/9/2010 5:51:58 PM   I figured this may be an issue with site permissions, so I have went into site permissions and removed and re-added Administrator into Homeowners group.   Thank you in advance.   Howie

Surveys: Showing a custom label between Page Separators?

Hi,  I created a Survey with 5 (Yes/No) related questions (1-5), a page separator, and 5 more related questions (6-10): Q1 Q2 Q3 Q4 Q5 Page Separator Q6 Q7 Q8 Q9 Q10 What I'd like is to have something like a Label being displayed on top of page like "Questions on Budget" for Questions 1-5 and "Training experience" for Questions 6-10.  There will be about 10 of these Labels.  I was thinking of a JavaScript that would create an array containing these Labels and then iterating through the array using a counter when the user clicks on the "Next" button...

Custom Fields not showing up in NewForm

Hello everybody,   I have got a very strange problem. I got two SP-Websites with several lists on them. Both have the same ContentTypes added (Standard CT is a Document-derived CT) however the 'Folder'-derived CT (including some additional fields like internal SAP numbers) is behaving differently in the lists. On the one List when I click on 'New Document'-'TestFolder' it is displaying all the added fields and in the other list it is only displaying the 'Name'-Field.   I have compared all the attributes of the Lists and also of the added Columen via Sharepoint Manager 2010 and found no differences whatsoever between them. It seems to be another problem caused by via Site-Template generated SP-Websites (including the libaries). When I create a new List on the Website and add the CT to the List all fields get displayed correctly? What could be the problem here with the Template-based lists?   Has anyone encountered the same problem once? Thank you for your help! Best regards, Martin

Custom SPD workflow actions not showing in prod enviornment

We have developed some SharePoint designer workflow actions and in our production enviornment we get the behavior where the Custom actions show up in the actions list but when select the associated sentence text with paramters is not displayed.  We have double (and triple) checked that the actions files and the assembly signatures match - the SAME files have been installed in another environement and everything works. We believe we have tracked it down to when SharePoint Designer makes a call to the site collection web service webpartpages.asmx - GetAssemblyMetaData the client machine (with SharePoint Designer running) is not getting a full response to this call.  Any thoughts / ideas are appriciated!  Rob Roach     

Custom masterpage Layout works fine, but WIDE sharepoint lists flow through, over design

Hello all, and thanks in advance for any help. We've built a custom masterpage layout and so far it works great.  We have specified a layout based on tables that fix the width at 960pixels.  The tables are centered on the screen and have a particular background that is different from the page's background to make the content pop.  It works fine in most cases and still displays all MOSSs dynamic contents like the quicklaunch bar at left, etc.  The theme sort of looks like this : http://www.sharepointpackages.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=65&products_id=268&zenid=a045f5b7dba91fdab94d754569e0b611 The problem is that when a list has too many columns and is therefore wider than the 700 or so pixels that are left over for the placeholders inside the table, the list continues on, but does not affect the table itself.  In other words it appears as if the content was placed OVER the tables in the layout.  This is odd first of all, but it is actually bad in a way, because even if I use styles on the table cells that hold these placeholders, and have the overflow use scrolls, the table ACTUALLY does not see an overflow and the contents continue to run through without activating the scrollbars (they don't even show up).  Can anyone help.  Please, Please, I've been looking at HTML for two days straight now trying to fi

Sharepoint Foundation - Create and deploy custom edit/view forms for external lists


Firstly, we are using sharepoint foundation so Infopath forms are not an option for us.

We have a Visual Studio sharepoint project which deploys a complete sharepoint site. The site contains a number of external lists and we want to be able to create customised view/edit forms for these lists and add them to our Visual Studio project so they can be deployed as part of the new site. The idea is that we can deploy the solution to a fresh site with a default set of forms which can then be customised for different implementations of the site.

Here's the steps we have been using to try and do this:

1. Deploy the base project (BDC) to the sharepoint site

2. Create external lists based on the BDC content types

3. Use Sharepoint Designer to create new edit/view forms for the lists and set these as the default forms for the list

3. Save the site as a template

4. Import the template into a new Visual Studio project and select the lists we require. This gives us a List Definition, a pages module (with element file), an elements file and a schema file (both for the List Instance).

5. We then add the contents of the imported project to our main solution as follows:

  • Create a new List Definition (including List Instance)
  • Copy the contents of the imported Elements.xml to the Elements file for our List Instance.

.NET Interface to Create/Maintain Custom Lists in SSAS


I would like to create a .NET interface to Create and Maintain Custom Lists in SSAS Cubes.  Would anyone know if there are any source code projects going in this direction?? If not, some direction on how to accomplish this?  Anyone have existing code/samples to.. Ex. Create lists from MDX scripts wrapped in Stored procedures 

Any help would be greatly appreciated


SharePoint Site Template Not Showing Up In Sites and Workspaces Custom Tab



I've done this so many times with no problems so i'm unsure what might be causing it this time.  I'm simply taking a SharePoint "Team Site" template with a few added web parts and saving this site template so I can use it over again throughout my SharePoint sites.  The .stp does show up in the Site Template Gallery, but for some reason the site template is not shown in Sites and Workspaces to select.

I made sure that all version numbers match by checking the verions via Central Administration -> Operations -> Servers in Farm  
I'm on version

Any ideas on something i'm missing?  In the past all I had to do was save site as template, and than boom! it would show up in Sites and Workspaces.

Any suggestions on what I might be missing would be of much help.

Thank you,

Removing "External List" option from Custom Lists?


We are in the process of upgrading from SharePoint 2007 to SharePoint 2010.  Our business users have noticed a new option of creating a new "External List" under the Custom Lists heading.  Is there any way to remove the External List option without having to customize the create.aspx page?

EventReceivers firing on all custom lists


Hi everyone, I've come here as a last resort before I find a revolver and a barn. I've struggled with this problem for weeks, even though it should in theory be a ridiciously simple thing.

My problem is that I have build a eventreceiver in VS2010 which for some reason is triggered on more lists than I specify. When I modifiy a list, the itemadding/added/updated/deleted-event is triggered for all the lists in the site. I don't have a clue why this happens, and I will provide code below. I have looked into the possibility that older versions/eventreceivers have been in action, hence I've deactivated all solutions and all, but a couple of integrated features. I've also started a new project in VS several times, and copied only the code over to the new project.

Obviously I've removed the ListTemplateId from the Receivers in the Elements.xml file. I should mention though, that my eventreceivers were still called even if I didn't assign them to any list in elements.xml, or if I specified ListUrl="myList" for example. The result is that the itemadding/added/updated/deleted-event is triggered for all the lists in the site.

My elements.xml file is as below:
