Is there a way to delete list items en masse from a SP list?  I am on MOSS 2007.  In order to use a particular site as a site template I had to save with content and I don't want the content.

How to properly configure permissions so users can view, add, edit, and delete list items, but not w

I am trying to figure out how to properly setup security so that it can be configured at the top-level, and then inherited all the way through. Here is what I would like to do: Each user can view, add, edit, and delete list items - but, users cannot modify or delete web part pages. The only way I know how to do this is set Contribute from the top-down, and then go into each Site Pages library and set Read access. The problem is that I have 100 sites, and I was hoping there was a way I could set security at the top, and inherit downward. Rather than having to go into all 100 Site Pages library and set Read access. Is there a way to do this? Thanks in advance.

Cannot delete list items made prior to a certain date


A few days ago one of our SharePoint designers approached me with a problem with a custom list. He could not delete a certain item from the list. After troubleshooting it for a while, we determined that any list item made prior to 10/31/2010 cannot be deleted. These list items can be edited without trouble. List items created after that date have no problem with deletion. Other custom lists do not exhibit this issue. Also, no configuration changes or updates were made to the server on that date. Our last round of updates happened earlier in the month of October.

I have so far tried rebooting the server and re-indexing the database (only because doing so in QuickBooks seems to fix a lot of issues).

This is SharePoint Server 2007 SP2 Standard on Windows Server 2003 R2 Enterprise with SQL Server 2008 Standard. Everything is in a 32-bit environment. We have ample freespace on all connected drives.

I am fairly new to troubleshooting SharePoint issues, so I'll be frank that I may need some hand holding. Could one of you please offer assistance?

Creating Sites/Lists/List Items under Current User Context in SharePoint By Using SPUserToken

Usually we do this by performing the action under RunWithElevatedPrivileges method and updating the listitem using SPListItem.SystemUpdate() method (see here). but this approach has its own flaws like (RunWithElevatedPrivileges will run under system account, we cannot use SystemUpdate for SPSite,SPWeb,SPList, since it runs under system we will "CreatedBy" by as SystemAccount).

Delete not working on List.aspx - out of box



I'am trying to use Dynamic data web site on my project. I have Visual Studio 2010 enf Framework 4.0. I create the default project with the wizard. I add my own Entity Data Model.

When I try to use the "delete" autogenerated button on List.aspx, on the table ServerSetting (see image below), I receive a null exception.  I have no custom code involved in this operation and cannot seem to determine what is Null.

Any help would be appreciated!

How to Customize the Add Comment 'Items on this list require content approval...' notification in


WSS 3.0:

If content approval is turned on, the Add Comment section displays a fairly ugly notification. Is there any way I can customize that section through e.g. CSS or SPDesigner?

I'd like to change at least the text, and preferably the yellow exclamation image, and also the background if possible.

Filter items with a date column with parameters start date and end date on a sharepoint list?

If I have alist with a view that has the columns Title, Status and Status Date and the view has some items. How Can I add a filter with two parameters, start date and end date, to only show records with status date equal to or greater than parameter start date and status date is less than or equal to parameter end date? This is a sharepoint online site and I can't create and deploy custom code, can use SPD though. Do I need to use SPD or is this something I can do in the list settings? Thanks in advance.   Edit: I had a look here http://www.endusersharepoint.com/2009/09/29/sharepoint-date-filter-filtering-a-list-by-greater-than-or-equal-to-date/ but I don't have the Date Filter web part.

Remove items from a list literally not working as needed

This is why SharePoint drives me insane.  Everything I have been able to find on the web says I *can* programmatically remove list items from a list, all I have to do is a declining loop.  I have even copied verbatium several code examples found in this forum and on the web and every last one of them gives me a "Collection was modified; enumeration operation may not execute." error in the Event log.  This is a C# Windows Form Application we want to use to remove a common announcement from any announcement list in our entire site (top down).  We can *add* it to every announcement list without issue (seperate code).  Can anyone point out to us the error in our code below? using System; using System.Collections.Generic; using System.ComponentModel; using System.Data; using System.Drawing; using System.Linq; using System.Text; using System.Windows.Forms; using Microsoft.SharePoint; using System.Text; using System.Reflection; using System.IO; using System.Diagnostics; using System.Xml; namespace RemoveAnnouncement { public partial class RAForm : Form { public RAForm() { InitializeComponent(); } private void removeAnnouncment_Click(object sender, EventArgs e) { const string a = "Application"; try { if (tlsURL.Text.ToString() == "http://" || tlsURL.Text.ToString() == &qu

External List - Access Selected Items

Hello, The situation;- An external list in SP 2010 from SQL A custom ribbon/button that calls via JS a Dialog box(Application page) and passes the selected items IDs Some code behind to process items after confirmation from user. Question is how to access the selected items in the code behind.

(I would rather work in my confort zone VB/C# than JS to process items) casey
