Content Organizer - Target Location - Automatically create a folder for each unique value of a prope

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 25, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I would like to create a content organizer rule to route documents from the drop off library to their final location in the document library.

I also want to create a subdirectory based off a metadata field, so that a folder gets created for each year.

There is a metadata field called "Document Classification Year".

I check the chebox to  "Automatically create a folder for each unique value of a property" and choose "Document Classification Year" as the field.

For "Specify the format for the folder name:" %2

I was hoping this would create a folder called "2010" if the meta data field "Document Classification Year" was entered as "2010".

But it creates TWO folders. The first folder it calls "Document Classification Year", the SECOND folder it calls "2010".

I don't need a folder called "Document Classification Year"! Just the folder "2010".

Can this be achieved without the content organizer??

Unique content within master page based on conditions met


 Hi all-

I would like to present users with unique content based on certain conditions being met as they land on the home page (default.aspx).  The condition logic will be in the VB code behind Page Load event. The content will go in a content placeholder as specificed from the master page. 

However, the content change wouldn't be something small (ie making a panel or label visible or not) but rather it will be different HTML,  Divs and databound gridview content.  The HTML content will be stored in the database.

Can someone point me in the right direction for best practices on how to accomplish this?


Create user is creating aspxxxx.mdf database in my app_data folder


I had already setup roles for my pages and requirements call for ability to manage and create users.

So i was looking at code that allows you to do so using membership, even though i got the page to work, it was creating a database in my app_data folder.. i already have SQLExpress setup with the asp schema, but cant figure out how to get my application to use that instead of creating the db in the folder?

What am i missing or doing wrong?

I have the following setup in my web.config file..

how to automatically save new file into document library with a unique name or ID?

I've created a form using MS Word Document (2007) and lock it (protect it) so that users will be able to fill in the required fields.
then i've created a Content Type and uploaded the MS word form to be used as a template.

Then I've created a document library and enabled the content type and associate the above form for the library, so that when users click on New button the form will open.

everythings goes fine till here.

The problem is when users clicks on New and save the file back to the library, It doesn't save it with a unique name, instead it is over writting the existing one.
in other words, if employee 1 fill up the form and save it and later on employee 2 accessed the library and fill up a new form, he will overwrite what employee 1 has already saved!!

Is there a way to give every new created file a unique name? maybe (username+time)??

Show folder content in a ListBox

Hi. I am close to going crazy here :) I have a small app and I want people to be able to open some files from within it. All I want is a small control that shows me the content of a specific folder on the HDD. My current approach includes a ListBox which should be filled with the documents of that folder. However I have (even after hours of googling and binging^^) absolutely no idea how to get them in there. I hoped that you could databind your ListBox to the file system, but this does not seem to be possible. Do I have to fill it via c# code? If so, how?   Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Create buttons for "new item" which create a new page of a specific content type

We have a Pages library (wiki) which supports a few content types (and page layout associated). We want to enable users to click a button for example of "new custom enterprise wiki page" - so a new page of content type article will be open in edit mode. Can someone help how to develop? (it has to mimic the behavior that happens when user creates new page from the Ribbon or Site actions and has to choose the content type, it also has to keep the new page in edit mode and not just create it).

If not then does it mean that the Value propety must always fix and can not be changed or Bound to any property Dose it mean that both of the way of setting Value proeprt are WRONG..? 1) Value="{Binding Path=Content}"> Or 2) Value="{Binding RelativeSource={RelativeSource Mode=Self},Path=Content}">

Cannot create content database: The specified SPConfigurationDatabase Name=SharePoint_Config Parent=

Guys, This is the farm configuration: 1. SQL Server 2005 back end server 2. WSS 3.0 / MOSS 2007 WFE Server 3. WSS 3.0 / MOSS 2007 Index/WFE Server All servers are showing the version: in 'Servers in Farm' in C.A. When attempting to add a new content database, the following error is thrown in the web UI: The specified SPConfigurationDatabase Name=SharePoint_Config-New Parent=SPDatabaseServiceInstance has been upgraded to a newer version of SharePoint. Please upgrade this SharePoint application server before attempting to access this object. Furthermore the following is posted to the application event log on the WFE hosting central admin: Database 'SharePoint_Config-New' on SQL Server instance 'XXXXXXXX' is not empty and does not match current database schema. There is nothing of further interest in the trace log, just the same error as above. No errors on the SQL server either. Also no updates have been installed, and content databases HAVE been created since the last updates were installed 2 years ago. Can anyone suggest anything before I raise a call with MS? I have checked permissions for the sharepoint system account on the databases and all seems fine. Cheers, Conrad    Conrad Goodman MCITP SA / MCTS: WSS3.0 + MOSS2007

Provisioning did not succeed. Details: Failed to create the 'Reusable Content' library. OriginalEx

Hi there, I am trying to activate the Feature SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure in a Team Site, but I am getting the following message: Provisioning did not succeed. Details: Failed to create the 'Reusable Content' library. OriginalException: Column 'ShowInRibbon' does not exist. It may have been deleted by another user. This environment is running SharePoint 2010 Server, as a result of an upgrade of MOSS 2007 by moving the Content Database. The visual upgrade was applied partially in this Site Collection, not for all the Web Sites. Interestingly for new SharePoint 2010 Site Collections the activation works fine! But not for this specific Site Collection. Any clues?
