Does somebody know how to get current user (logon user) in an action of a workflow definition from the Sharepoint Designer 2007. I know how to do it by using .NET coding, but it requires to upload a dll to the bin directory of the application which is not
an option due to my company Sharepoint policies.
I would like to know how I can filter a SharePoint library list based on current user login.
Suppose I have created the followings:
1) A SharePoint form library containing bunch of uploaded InfoPath form data.
2) The InfoPath form template contains a promoted text field called "TargetUser" to store user domain login (ex: DOMAIN\JOE) and every InfoPath form file in the library has a valid domain name stored in the "TargetUser" field.
I have created a custom view for the form library and would like to filter this view so only items whose "TargetUser" field matches current user's login ID are displayed.
I went to Edit View page to customize the view and tried to use the [Me] function but I got a "Filter value is not a valid text string" message instead when clicking OK. Apparently [Me] returns a Person/Group data type and the filter cannot compare its value
to that of "TargetUser".
I tried using text functions (ex: TEXT([Me],"") hoping to extract default string value from [Me]. The filter accepts the parameter without any error but the resulting fitlered list does not display any items at all.
I have googled this subject for hours but I have not found any solution.
It would be greatly appreciated if anyone can help me t

I have a fairly complex SharePoint Designer 2007
Data View they have added two more requirements.
1. Have the columns on the right side be able to scroll left to right as there is a large number of columns, while the first 3 columns on the left side stay locked in place. This is only one list not two, and because of some other requirements
I have it must remain to be just one list.
2. Then they also need to have scrolling up and down of the entire list with the headers locked in place.
The first requirement is more important than the second, but preferrably I need to do both.
I am new to XSL so not familar with the syntax. Is this something I can do on a custom Data View? Does anyone have any examples of how?
I have a drawing that show how it needs to look but I don't see an option here to upload a graphic.
So here is a link to my graphic example uploaded to my blog area: http://lindachapman.blogspot.com/ or just the image here: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_aB01ue__NvQ/TGL42MOvrGI/AAAAAAAAAA4/c3xP4uCy4BU/s1600/Scrolling.png
I failed to mention that 3/4 of the columns are HTML Calculated fields wh
Hello..we have a reuirement where we have to filter the parameter value in the drop down based on the user who is accessing the report. We have form and Windows authenication enabled in the SharePoint site (some users will be from inside the network using
windows and some will be accessing the site using internet using the Form Authentication).
Please let me know what would be the best way to handle this reuirement? Do we need to create a separate table and store the User Information along with the parameter values they have access to, pass the userid from Report to db and then fileter the
records using this table? OR Can we create a SharePoint List to maintain the user access information and then directly fetch the user information from the list using T-SQL to filter the records?
Please let me know your suggestion...
I need to create a data view that joins and displays data from two lists, and to sort and group on all of the fields displayed, not just fields from the main list.
I created linked datasource from two of my lists, joined them on a common field, and firstÃÂ inserted fields from the main list.ÃÂ Then I insertedÃÂ fields from the other list as a Joined Subview,ÃÂ which worked just fine, but now I need to be able to sort and filter on fields in that joined list, for which there doesn't seem to be an option.
Does anybody know whether it's possible and/or any workarounds/solutions for this? Basically, Is there a way to create a joined view of two lists where all fields are displayed inÃÂ separate columns, and not in a table within a cell as in a case with joined subview?
Any comments are highly appreciated.
