SSAS 2008 - Date Member Property gets converted from NULL to (Blank)


Hello everyone,

I have this cube with a dimension of investment deals.  The "Deal" member has a attribute named "Latest Acquisition Date" where this date can be null for some deals.  Once the cube is processed, the null dates always get converted to "(blank)" either in BIDS cube browser or in Excel.  This happens no matter what I do to the NullProcessing property of this date attribute.

Is there any way to have SSAS display [NULL] (as in nothing at all) instead of "(blank)" ?

Unit Testing SharePoint - Past, Present, and Sporm

As I described in SharePoint: The Wild West of Software Development there is a serious problem when you develop for SharePoint: ensuring quality through unit testing is really, really hard. And that's where a new open source tool just released today called sporm (SharePoint Object Relational Mapper) comes in. While sporm provides many benefits besides simplified unit testing I wanted to focus on this topic first, because sporm's approach, which models the entity framework in the way it supports POCO's, is a unique feature not available with other SharePoint tools like LINQ to SharePoint.

Got a problem with CGI - can it be converted to asp.net?


Ok, what I want to do is take input from a simple web post that used to be in CGI format and post it into my database. I am figuring using .net would be cleaner and easier to maintain. However, I have no clue how to convert this to .net. I could use some help please...thanks :)  The script below doesn't error out but it also doesn't insert either... The script reads like this:

use strict; 
use warnings; 
use CGI qw(:standard); 
use CGI::Carp qw(fatalsToBrowser warningsToBrowser); 
use DBI qw(:sql_types); 
my $title = 'Reading List'; 
my $start = 40; 
print header(), start_html($title),
h1({-style=>"font-size:1.2em"}, $title);
my $value = param("value");
print "'value' param = $value"; 
my $dbName = "DATABASE"; 
my $dbHost = ""; 
my $dbUser = "user"; 
my $dbPass = "pass"; 
my $dbh = DBI->connect("DBI:mysql:$dbName:$dbHost", $dbUser, $dbPass, { RaiseError => 1 }) or die "Die: $DBI::errstr\n";
my @fields = param();
my @values = param(my $variable);
my @filehandles = upload(my $variab

The function is:

SharePoint 2007 Central Admin - blank page, isapimodule error in IIS


I've got a Windows 2008 SP2 server runing x64.

When i try to access the SharePoint Central Admin site, I just get a blank page. No errors in the Windows logs, nothing showing up in the SharePoint logs. The IIS log shows a 500 error.

I enabled Failed Request Tracing for the 500 status code, which gives me the following information:

HttpReason Internal Server Error

HttpSubStatus 0

ErrorCode 2147942593


Blank Managing My Links Page for Just One User



I've got a single user who's not able to manage his links in MOSS 2007. The links I speak of are gotting to via http://<<your:mysite>>/_layouts/myquicklinks.aspx. Other users have no issue.

I read somewhere that this might be caused by the user in question having added an improperly formated link. My issue is how can I check for that condition and correct it? Any thoughst would be much appreciated.





Maybe it's just late - HTMLEditor Content is always blank


Hi everyone - I'm new to the forum.  I searched around and couldn't find where anyone else has had this problem. (VB.net)

I have created a Class that Inherits the AjaxControlToolkit.HTMLEditor.Editor.  I override the FillTopToolbar and FillBottomToolbar.  I get the editor to display just fine.

It is a very simple form, that when a button is clicked, I have code in the code behind that would grab the Content from the Editor and process it.  The problem is that it doesn't matter what I type in, the Content retrieved is always, always Nothing or "".. it is mind boggling.  The control works in other areas of the application.

Here is the class:

Namespace Controls

Visual Studio 2010 Shows Blank Page during web development


I just upgraded a web project from VS2008 to VS2010 Ultimate (Windows7 64bit, IE8/Google Chrome. When I run the web project in the development server (by hitting F5) everything acts like it is supposed to except everything comes up blank. Even the directory structure page is blank, just an empty HTML open and close shell. I get no errors no indications of failure, nothing. When I try to use google chrome I get the same blank page no matter where I navigate to, even if I try to navigate to a non-existant location on the dev server. I know the code compiles and acts correctly because I can deploy it to our QA servers without issue. Any ideas? 

When editing a list item the fields are not blank.


This is a recent issue that I have in which I have a "Issue Tracking" List that maintains the workflow of contract renewals.

When an person goes to edit an existing list entry, the description field (standard) has the original text in the box. Prior to this the original - or any older text from a prior change was listed outside and just below the box - and non editable.

That's not the case anylonger.

Any thoughts?



SharePoint leaving Assigned To field blank in a Workflow Task



We are having an issue with occasional Tasks being created by a WF that have a blank Assigned to field.  Solution consists of:

  1. A form with a People picker field that allows the user to select and validate the Authoriser name.
  2. An Auto-start-on-New SP Designer workflow runs that does a "Collect Data from User action" and assigns the Task to the Authoriser.

Unfortunately, although this worked fine during dev and test, now the solution is live and we are having 150-200 requests per day, we are finding that the WF occasionally fails to fill in the Assigned To details when it creates the Task. (approx 8 failures per 200 requests, ie 4%).

As SharePoint already has the User data field, I am confused why this might fail, and there is no obvious pattern (same auth, 4 work OK then 1 failure). 
Does SP contact the AD again when it creates the Task?

Anything else I should investigate? any suggested fix / work-arounds?

Suppress Blank Rows in Grouping on SRS

I have a Table on a SRS report.  Within that Table I have a Group. I display Rows from the DataSet in the Group Header.  In the Detail Line of the Group, I display rows if a condition is true.  That condition is in the Filter Criteria (Fields!GroupID.Value > 0).  If the GroupID equals 0, I want to suppress the detail line.  If GroupID is greater than 0, I want to show it.  This works great in development mode within Visual Studio 2005. I deploy to SRS on our Test Server and run the report. All of the detail rows are displayed even the ones where GroupID = 0. I am using the same Data Source.  The only difference is running the report within Visual Studio and the SRS web site. Does anyone have a suggestion.
