I have created a new report category and a document library and i want to link them but i cant.

sorry if that was long winded.

Can you create a report from a sharepoint list using BDC?


I have a list that has a bunch of useful meta data, but management wants more of a detail and total area type of report from the data. I am at a loss for the best way to come up with a report like this from the list data in a fairly automated manner.

Has anyone done this? If so what do you recommend? I thought maybe excel services but that doesn't seem like it is quite what I need. I considered SSRS but my manager suggested I explore BDC. No idea if it can consume SharePoint itself though.

What is the best way to Create Ageing Report in SharePoint 2007?


Hi Experts,

I need your point of view about this and please advise,

My client have made a request to generate Ageing Report thru their SharePoint 2007, FYI all invoice was scan and upload to sharepoint and save as PDF file under Document Library. During the scan, certain information will capture automatically and save it into field that we defined inside the Web Form.   

Below is the basic input we capture:

Vendor Code, Vendor Name, Invoice Number, Invoice Date, Currency, Invoice Amount

Report Requirement (display list and group of:)

- Vendor Code, Vendor Name, No. Of Invoice, Total Payable, Ageing 0-30, Ageing 30-60, Ageing 60-90, Ageing>90 

So my question is, what is the best platform to create this Ageing Report??

because when i try to design the report thru Visual Studio (Reporting Services), i can't identified which database should i connect and which table is store all the invoice information in SharePoint.

Any idea guys?? anybody have implemented it before??


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.

SharePoint 2010 Reporting Services report on sharepoint list rsExecutionNotFound

I cannot get SQL Reporting Services 2008 R2 to work with a datasource that is a sharepoint list.  Reporting services seems to work fine setup in SharePoint 2010 Integrated mode. When I try and run a report that is based on a sharepoint list, I immediatly get the following error: The report execution tp15sp4515l3seqqo4do3e45 has expired or cannot be found. (rsExecutionNotFound) This seems to be something I am doing wrong with the sharepoint configuration, I would guess.  I haven't tried a regular database query, but they used to work when reporting services was configured for native mode.  So I assume this is just a problem connecting to sharepoint 2010 lists, with the new SharePoint 2010 List connection type. Edit This has got to have something to do with a permission setting for the app pool account of sharepoint.  I read something once where it said you had to grant it permissions, but every guide I've found since then doesn't mention anything about it. This log entry is where the problem seems to be occuring, I just don't know what permissions to give TESTDOMAIN\spweb which is the app pool account. library!ReportServer_0-3!1bdc!09/01/2010-09:58:03:: e ERROR: Throwing Microsoft.ReportingServices.Diagnostics.Utilities.ReportServerStorageException: , An error occurred within the report server database.  This may be due to a connection failure, tim

Create a new list View Style

Hi, In SharePoint 2010 for XSLT List View Web Part you can assign different view styles using SharePoint Designer. For example "Basic Table", "Boxed" or "Shaded" etc. These styles just don't fit my needs. So my question is how can I create my own View Style which I can apply to any list? I came across "Customize XSLT > Customize Entire View" option under Design tab in SharePoint Designer which allows me to change the XSL stylesheet and control the rendering for a list. But how can I create my own list "View Style" which I would like to reuse with other lists too? Thanks, Hitesh

The user will enter the customer ID, I have to check that ID against 5 different data sources. Have you guys done anything similar?

create workflow for 2 list

hi, this is my senario: i have created a custom list in the "absence and vacation schedule" site template. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=56406562-01F9-4A18-9924-2DC0684232C8&displaylang=en   in the custom list i created i store the ID of all the approvers and the ID of all the users that can fill a request form. now i wanted to create a workflow between the custom list i created and the absence list that was already created. in the submit new absence form i added a field named user id. now what i want to do is that when a user fill in a form the workflow must compare the user his id in absence list with the user his id in the custom list i created and see witch approver is connected to that user id so it can send the request form only for that approver. i hope i was clear enough thnx

What is the best way to dynamically create a scrollable list of forms that when clicked expand for e

Hello, What is the best way to dynamically create a scrollable list of forms that when clicked expand for entry? More details: In my XAML I have a TabControl. One particular TabItem looks like this:   <TabItem Name="Tab_Forms" Header="4" Width="50" Height="20" Background="{x:Null}" BorderBrush="{x:Null}"> <Border Name="Tab_CategoryTabSelected_Border" BorderThickness="10" BorderBrush="Transparent" Padding="3"> <... What do I use here? ...> </Border> </TabItem> At the location <... What do I use here? ...> I need some sort of scrollable control.  The scrollable control can be part of the XAML above. However, the contents of that scrollable control will be entirely code generated. Within that scrollable control will be a vertical list of forms by name with an expansion/contract button next to the name.  When the user clicks the expansion button, the form expands into view, and may be longer than the viewable area, and the user will need to be able to enter data into the entry fields.  I need the tab key to go from field to field as would be expected. If the user is on the last viewable field and there are more fields below, when the user hits the tab key, the for
