How do I put the title "Documents" at the top of the documents content area

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

In my ongoing effort to put titles on all the pages, so that the user knows where they are, I keep running into inconsistencies in the way SP handles different items.

I went to the Site Actions > New Document Library and created a place named "Documents"

I want the word "Documents" above "Type" "Name" "Modified" and "Modified By" when the page is displayed.  I can't see how to edit the page to add that.

I'll settle for what is happening automatically with the Discussion Boards.  And that is, the name "Discussion Boards" appears above the page layout that lists the discussions.

How do I get "Documents" to do the same thing?  

This is a compromise from what I really want (see link below), but I'll settle for now.  Thanks!

MOSS Content Database has more documents than what's seen on browser

I am not sure how sharepoint internally handles stuff, but this is what I see. I am a SQLDBA and one of my company sharepoint group re-organized a site, by moving some files from a document library to another document library. I think she used the content deployment.

When she see the number of documents in the document library it showed 700 documents. She moved only 50 of them. I went into the database and queried the Docs and DocStreams View and I get the list of all the those documents. I see both the ones that we see on the site as well as something that we do not see on the site.

Record Center and content type of the incoming documents


Hello all

I have same content types in both collboration site and record center sites.

When I used Send To command to send a document from collaboration area to record center, all the properties and metadata are promoted to columns in the Record center library. But the Content type of the document in record center is set to "Document" even though the incoming document's metadata has Content type value. Will all the records end up as Document content type if we are using default router?

SharePoint 2010 showing incorrect title for Word documents


I only found one thread for this, and it points to one either i don't have access to or that has been disabled: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en/sharepointdevelopment/thread/c1d84c7e-8d7f-4584-afcb-19224b51b124

My problem is that some Word documents are returning in Search Results with the first word on the page as opposed to the document title and i'm not sure where it is coming from. The document properties i can view via SP and those that i can view from within the Word document are set correctly, so i can't figure out why Search is showing the first word in the document. This isn't happening for all Word documents, only some of them.

Any insight would be helpful!

can you upload multiple documents (to a doc library) and set content type and meta data at same time

can you do this?  it doesn't seem like the dialogs support this functionality.  As an alternative i tried doing it in a grid type view after the fact but i couldn't get the grid view to show the content type, even worse, the grid view would let me add meta data to content types that didn't even have that column as long as it was in the view!!

Content Query web part - how to open documents on first click instead of first opening the document


Hi all, Hopefully this is a easy settings change question, when I create a content query web part and have it look at documents in a document library (Either document library or document centre) when I click on the name of the document (link to doc) in the content query it opens up a page that list the document properties, I then have to click on the "Name" of the document link to open the document but when i close the document I end up at the library that the document is in and not on the page that I clicked on  the link in content query web part. So in some cases a user is on a site and clisks on a link(in a content query web part) that eventaully opens a document in the document centre and when they close the doucment there end up in the document centre.

Any ideas why this behaviour is suddendly happening, it didn't happen when I first added the content wuery web parts, thanks in advance.
