Problem With SharePoint Timer job - Ignoring basic c# functions.

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

Hi there guys..I am having a really annoying problem with my timer job. 

What does my timer job do?

Essentially it looks into a SharePoint list to automatically send emails for people who have booked onto seminars three days and one day before the seminar.  What im having problems with is constructing a CAML query.  I have the value of a sharepoint lookup column (e.g. 3;#3) and i am trying to extract the ID from this field using:

int index = string.indexof(";#");

newstring = string.substring(string,index);

This obviously will work no problems however when i debug my code in the timerjob  it only returns null.  When i type the code into the immediate window during debugging it returns me the right value.

 

Does anyone know a reason why it would not properly process the standard c# code?  Below for reference is my entire code.

 

Thank you in advance

  {
    public SeminarTimerJob()

      : base()

Sharepoint 2007 Email problem

  

I've used Sharepoint 2007 to create my website. Within my web pages I've included Forms in order to capture people's contact details, so that when they 'Submit' the form their details are emailed to my email account. The problem is that when I go to Form Properties and insert the email address to which I want the data sent, I receive this message: "This form cannot be configured to send results via email. The web site may be based at a disk-based location, or a location that has not been configured to send email. Contact your system admin or ISP for more info. Would you like to remove the email recipient Yes or No"   

I am satisfied that the settings within the webhosting service are correct. Is this functionality available with Sharepoint 2007 or do I need to switch to alternative software.

Problem accessing Sharepoint 2007 MySite

  

My users are having an issue accessing their mysites.  When they go to the main portal page or any other site and click the link at the top right of the page to go to their Mysite they are thrown into an endless authentication loop.  If they cancel out of the loop the URL in the address bar is for http://mossserver/_layouts/MySites.aspx

For a user to successfully get to their myself they need to enter the full url like http://mossserver/personal/username/default.aspx

Now, I know somewhat how this happened.  It resulted from me trying to delete a user's mysite and I apparently did it wrong but I'm not sure what I did.  It almost seems like I deleted a redirect page or something...

Looking for any ideas.

Thanks,

Casey


Sharepoint 2007 View Problem

  
I have a document library in Sharepoint 2007 in which I have seet up a number of different views so that the users who work with the information in that library can filter down to the specific area that they work with.  The view itself works great, and they are able to see their data quite easily.  The problem comes when they actually go in and edit any of the items.  Unlike most software in the civilized world for the past 30 years, the user is not returned to the view that they were working with, but to the defult view.  This means that any task where they are required to do many edits at a time becomes a frustrating nightmare and waste of time.  Is there any setting I can change, or anything else at all that I can do to give my users a little relief by making the site navigation such that they are returned after an edit to the same view that they were in before the edit?  Ideally, it would be nice if the same scroll position within the view were returned as well, but I suspect that I may be asking for too much by pushing that issue.  HELP! HELP!  Any and all constructive assistance is appreciated.

Problem with SharePoint Designer 2007 and Custom List Forms

  

I created several forms (Create/Edit/View) for a SharePoint list, using Custom List Forms.  I'm using Content Types in the list to ensure that each item only has the necessary fields.  When I created the ASPX forms, and inserted the Custom List Forms, I selected the correct Content Type, and I got the right fields inserted in the form.

Now, for some reason I can't identify, every time I create a new form, and insert a Custom List Form, SPD is bringing ALL fields from the list, instead of just bringing the fields included in the selected Content Type.

I have tried many different things to solve the problem, including creating new lists/content types/forms, etc. but SPD is doing the same thing all the time.

Can somebody tell me what may have gone wrong in SPD or MOSS?

Thanks


Custom SharePoint Timer Job doesn't run after changing code and restart timer services.

  
Hi We are facing an issue that our custom SharePonit Timer Job doesn't run after a changing the code. First, we developed and deployed a timer job. It worked fine for a few days, then we detected a memory leak and killed the OWSTIMER.EXE. (Maybe we should uninstall the timer job and restart the timer services nicely). We fixed the problem, redeployed the fix as a feature (assemblies are re-GACed ...) to our small SharePoint farm (one web server, one services server), restarted the SharePonit Timer Services. Now we can see the time job in Timer Job Definition in Central Admin but the job never runs (Since it doesn't run, the timer job status page doesn't have any info about it). We tried the same process in a dev environment with SharePoint signle box installation. The timer job just works fine. I did some search on Internet and followed some instruction to clear the cache from "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\SharePoint\Config\1d50d73c-9bf1-4444-85a9-910ed050d1bf" by 1. Remove all the xml2. Clear the cache.ini with "1".3. restart the timer services. It still doesn't fix the problem.Please advise what else I can do. I even rename the timer job and redeploy it. It doesn't help. I checked the even log and SharePoing log and couldn't see anything wrong. Our OS is W2K8.         public override void FeatureActivated(SPFeatureReceiverProperties properties)        {

Problem Integration SQL Reporting Service 2005 and SharePoint 2007

  
Hello, I'm trying to make our SQL Reports available on our SharePoint report center. I have SQL 2005 (sp3) report server that resides on a different server than our SharePoint 2007 server. So in our SRS Configuration Tool, we changed the database mode for SharePoint integration (before, we only had it in native mode), so we created a new database for this SharePoint Integration type. Next, I installed the Report Server Add-in for SharePoint 2007 server and it was successful. However when configuring the Report Server, we got stuck at the step "Grant Database Access". For some reason we keep getting error message "Named instance not found" We already installed Service Pack 3 on the Report Server... I heard that the problem is because the mismatched version between the Report Server Add-in in SharePoint and the SQL RS version... but I don't think this is the case for us. Do we need to install WSS on our Report Server too?     Another question: We already integrate our Report Server with Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0. However I see that when the Report Server is in the SharePoint Integration mode, all the reports in CRM don't work (because Report Manager is no longer available in this mode). Do you think it would be the best practice to install a copy of Report Server instance in our SharePoint 2007 server? Thank you, greatly appreciate all your hel

Problem with incoming mail to SharePoint Library - what is wrong with this?

  
I configured my incoming mail to a SharePoint 2010 library according to these instructions. http://intellects.in/2010/04/04/configuring-sharepoint-2010-document-libraries-with-exchange-server-2010-to-receive-mails-from-internalexternal-world/ I'm able to receive mail at the Exchange mailbox set up for the document library, but am unable to receive the document in the library itself.  I'm thinking it's because I have a problem with my naming - but I'm not sure how to solve it: I have a SharePoint box and an Exchange box. I've configured the SMTP virtual server with default domain of  server.domain.com .  I've also assigned it an alias of domain2.net I've configured incoming email in SharePoint Central Administration to use the address of mylist@domain2.net so that users can have a friendly url for sending documents to lists and libraries. I've created an Attended Domain in Exchange 2010 and set up an email address policy that speicifes all mailboxes receive an domain2.net address.  I have an MX record for the domain2.net address with a DNS server pointing to the Exchange box. I've created an SMTP Send Connector that points to the FQDN server.domain.com of my virtual server on my SharePoint box. With that connector, I've chosen to route mail through the same FQDN of server.domain.com , that of my SharePoint/IIS SMTP Virtual Server box. When I confi
