wss2.0 edit drop-down menu does not display

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

Hi all

I have a user who is unable to view the edit drop-down menu next to documents in a document library.

The user was able to view the drop-down before, but it seems since upgrading to either Office 2007 or IE7 that the problem is occuring. The user is an administrator on the site so it doesn't seem to be permissions issue.

I have had the user run an Office Diagnostics but this did not resolve the problem.

Any ideas please?

Add edit drop down menu so I can edit pdf files in SharePoint


I have a pdf file that I'd like to open and edit.  The pdf file just opens, and doesn't ask if it should be opened as a read only or edit option.  My colleague is able to select edit mode as a drill down, but I can't figure out how to add this functionality into my document library... does anyone have a solution?

Is it possible to add the drop down edit menu that appears from a single page to the page edit toolb


I am running Sharepoint 2007 and wondered if it is possible to add the "edit" drop down menu that appears from a single page—the one that contains edit properties, check out, publish a major version, etc—into the page edit toolbar, which is the one that contains the page, workflows, and tools drop downs.  I found the article that provided the code to add a "links" menu and quick buttons, but didn't know if it was possible to add the edit menu or, if so, what code would be necessary.

The reason I want to add it is for page creators to be able to access that menu's options without having to first navigate back to the pages library.

Thanks in advance!

Null values doesnot show up in custom edit form in a drop down choice menu


Hello guys,

I have a problem. I don't know why custom edit form is behaving like that.

I have a choice drop down with values  " ","Yes","No". For custom  new form, I can insert null values and everything is working fine.

But coming to this custom edit form which I created.  While editing, if we set a value to null and submit the form. It is getting the "Yes" as the value. It is skipping the null value and placing the "Yes" value. I have kept the default value for choice drop down as " ".(null too).

I don't know why it is not showing null value. Do guys have any idea or if came across anything like this. Please help

How to use a drop down list to edit in the standard Edit.aspx with DD?


Hey All,

I'm brand new to Dynamic Data and to ASP.NET.  I've been able to fumble around and get the calendar extender up and running and a few other customization options implemented, but I can't seem to get this drop down list to work - even after reading tons of online info.  The good news is that my web page/application is VERY simple, so hopefully you guys can help me out.  I'm working in VB btw.

I have a list of road projects submitted to me by local governments.  One of the fields is SponsoringAgency, which has a limited number of possible entries (the names of member governments).  Thus, when they submit a new project, or edit an existing one, I want to limit the input into the field "SponsoringAgency." I'm trying to use a dropdownlist because I'm familiar with it from Access, but it may not be the best approach.  Imagine you just setup a brand new, standard DD website, how would you get this to work?

Methods tried and failed (probably because I don't understand them fully):

UIHint - The closest I can get with this is an error saying that since SponsoringAgency isn't a Foreign Key, I'm out of luck.

Creating a SponsoringAgency Table - In my data layer, I created a second table with a list of government names.  I then tried se

Looking for an alt way to access the "edit menu"


I have discovered that personal views do not "stick" when accessing the Properties with through the "Type (icon linked to document) ".  --if user is using a personal view and they access the properties and then go back, the view reverts to the default view.

If accessing Properties through :"Name (linked to document with edit menu) "  the Personal views remain. 

I am trying to deemphasize the document names in the library I am developing.  Is there another way to give the end user access to the "Edit Menu" apart from the :"Name (linked to document with edit menu) "  ?

wss2.0 update/delete/hide lookup column that does not display any values


Hi All,

I have a document library that contains a Category column that is a lookup field. This is a default column that is a required field when uploading documents to the document library. The Category column is empty and I am unable to amend, hide, make it not required or delete it.

I have gone to Modify settings and columns -> clicked on the Category field to edit, but there is no option to amend the content or delete it. I am only able to amend the Column name and Description.

Since then, I have amended the column name to eg. Category1 and created a new Category field as a lookup and linked it to the correct list.

The problem I am facing now, is that I cannot hide, delete or make the Category1 (old Category) field NOT required. Either I would like to update the original field to display the correct values or alternately hide, delete or make the column not required.

Please help.

Display each new line of a sharepoint mutliline text field as choice in drop down box.

The question pretty much says it all. I have a lot of data I need to represent, and this would be the best way to do it. I have a multiline text field in sharepoint, where each line has a choice that should be a seperate choice in a text box. How do I do this? I have the data connection set up, and I would be fine with adding some sort of tag after each line, if that would make it so infopath can somehow parse out those tags, and interpret each "chunk" as a choice. Thanks in advance for your help.

I am a Site Administrator, but I do not see Site Settings or Edit Page menu from Site Actions

Hi, I have been using MOSS for over 2 years, but I have not even heard or seen this kind of situation. I am a Site Administrator, but I do not see Site Settings or Edit Page menu from Site Actions menu, and I typed in http://mysitecollection:portnumber/_layouts/settings.aspx to go to setting page manually and looked around there. I confirmed that I am the site administrator, but when I go to Advanced Permissions, I do not see any checkbox beside each users. So basically, I am a Site Administrator on the site, but I am really NOT! What is going on here!?
