Share Point List Issue

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 27, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I have created a list for a small quiz.  The list includes columns with questions 1 through 5 which are choice columns with multiple answers or single answers.  I am trying to score the quiz and have tried adding additionl columns between the questions.  It allows me to add a calculated column for the questions that have single answers and the formula menu includes a slection of that "question 2" number from the list to add to your formula.  The questions that have multiple choice answers do not appear in the list for you to select to add to your formula for that question. 

Example: Question 2 - Single answer
Formula: Score 2 - =IF([Question 2:]="true",5,0)  This formula scores 5 points if the answer is Correct and = true if it is incorrect it is 0 points.

Problem: Question 4 - Multiple answers
Formula: Score 4 =IF([Question 4:]="A;,B;,D", 5,0)  This does not work.  I have tried writing my own formula but I get an error everytime.  Error Message. One or more column references are not allowed, because the columns are defined as a data type that is not supported in formulas. 

I do not generally work with formulas and this is farely new for me.  This is Microsoft Share Point Moss 2007 .C

Designing a view for Share Point list with vertically repeated columns


I want to create a view for a Share Point List, which displays employee name and his/her phone number. I need to design this view in such a way that all items fit on one page and as there are more items they need to be displayed in repeated columns, instead of displaying on next page. Is it possible to achieve this without programming and just using Share Point Designer? I tried the conditional formatting but did not know how to achieve the repeated columns?

Anyone done this functionality or can provide any insight?

Share Point integrated SSRS reports rendering when access from external site

Issue with List Definition of same base content type and deployed via same feature


I am trying to deploy two custom list definitions using only one single feature.  Below are the details of my issue.

  • Two custom list definitions
  • Each custom list definition has its own custom content type
  • Each custom content type inherits from the base content type Picture (Type = 109)
  • The custom list definitions are grouped together under one single feature
  • The custom content types are grouped together under a seperate single feature

When I deploy my solution in this configuration, the second list definition gets the first custom content type applied to it and the list schema from the first list definition is also applied to the second list definition.

What makes this more interesting, when I seperate both of the list definitions under two seperate features it all works fine.  Custom content types and list schemas get applied correctly.

Can anyone tell me why I can not deploy both list definitions under one single feature?

If you need me to post any of the origional code or XML to this post please let me know.
