Autopopulte a library column from a list based on a library column from that same list?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 26, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I have a lookup column in a library to a list containing unique ID's for projects.   The Project ID is selcted when a document is checked into the Library so that all documents in the library can be sorted by project.    That same list also contains the name of the Project manager for each project.

I want to be able to sort the doc library by Project Manager.  How can I autopopulate a document library column with the PM name based on the Project ID selected when the docuemetn is checked in?

Many Thanks

Picker returns nothing for BDC column in custom list


Playing with the BDC for the first time, running into some issues adding a Business Data column to a custom list.

I believe my ADF file is solid. I've been able to import that just fine and can use the application to drive various BDC-specific webparts (a Business Data List or Business Data Item, for example). It also seems to work when I manually enter information in my NewForm.aspx field and click the Check Names button (it verifies my entry and underlines it, creates link to profile when I view the list data).


If I try to use the picker, I get nothing. Enter a name I know is valid or a % and click the magnifying glass icon and I very briefly get the "Please Wait" message, then just an empty set with "Type into the search box above then press "Enter" to start your search" where my results should be.

Any pointers? Thanks.

Add Items to List with BDC Column via Web Services

I really hope this is possible.  I am trying to add items to a list that have a BDC column as one of the fields.  Here is the code I am using in the Batch

batchElement.InnerXml = "<Method ID='1' Cmd='New'>" +  
"<Field Name='Title'>Hello World</Field>" +  
"<Field Name='bdc'>BDCIdentifier</Field>&

Use BDC data in list as multi-select column

I have a document library that uses values from another system for its metadata.  Right now, we copy the values from the primary system into SharePoint so users can choose them.  I want to find a way to use the BDC connection that I have set up to automatically pull those values.  The problem is that the current metadata is set to multi-select.  So, I have a file that is in the library and it can be used for multiple clients - clients is a column in my library and users can select many entries.  When I set up a column to pull BDC data, it only allows single entry.  Does anyone have any ideas?

DVWP not displaying a column as per the original list


I have a data view web part which displays a list column that allows multiple items to be selected from another list.  So in this column (in the actual list), the content in a particular cell is as follows:

6698; 1211; 3342; 1231; 1231

However, when I insert this field into the DVWP, the content above ends up losing all the spaces and so looks like this:


I am not sure why this is happening, and plus some of the entries in this column are made up of a very long string of numbers.  Even if I control the width of the column, this long list only ever gets displayed on one line (i.e. width restriction is ignored), therefore my page is being displayed very wide.  I think this is happening because of the lack of spaces in the string, but am not sure.

Does anyone know what is going on here?

Thanks for taking time to read.

How to read a column of a sharepoint list to a text string field of infopath form?

My infopath form used to read these email addresses from a web service and web.config file. Now i would like to get these user email addresses from a contact list in a sharepoint server. I am trying to do this without writing any codes. Here is what i have done so far: 1. Adding a new "data connection to receive data from SharePoint library or List" where i selected Email Address column of the contact list. 2. I added a new Text Field and define a new rule with "Query using a data connection" defined above. When i try to access the newly created Text field above it always return empty as if the Query attached to it did not executed at all. What did i do wrong? Is there a better way? Thank you in advance for your help.

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.

C# newbie stuck - trying to access column data in a SharePoint list in an SSIS script task

Hello, I'm sure this is the simplest question but I can't figure it out, even with Google's help. I am trying to stumble through some C# code in an SSIS script task and I am frustrated that I can't figure out how to do the easiest things.  I eventually want to find data in a column,and then use another list as a lookup to replace that value with another where the existing value matches a value in the lookup list.  So, the data in my (multiple choice) column might be "apples; bananas" and in another list I have a row that contains two columns, the first holding the value "Apples" and the second containing "Red Delicious" and my original column should read: "Red Delicious; bananas." But, alas, I can't even figure out how to see the data that is in a column. Here is my code: /*<br/> Microsoft SQL Server Integration Services Script Task<br/> Write scripts using Microsoft Visual C# 2008.<br/> The ScriptMain is the entry point class of the script.<br/> */<br/> <br/> using System;<br/> using System.Data;<br/> using Microsoft.SharePoint;<br/> using Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime;<br/> using System.Windows.Forms;<br/> using Microsoft.SharePoint.Utilities;<br/> <br/> namespace ST_08becda4c05c49cd9f30ea76110076cd.csproj<br/> {<br/> [
