Uploading documents directly to record center libraries in MOSS

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

Hello all,

We have several pdf documents that are records and we want to maintain them in record center. These documents were not part of any collaboration sites. They are all in a shared folder. So there is no audit history and version history for these documents which is typical of any collaboration area documents.

The question I have is, will there be any disadvantages of directly uploading the document to record center library instead of setting up routing rules and submitting the document using OfficialFile.asmx.

I have noticed that when we submit a document using Send To, Record Center's default router renames the file and makes it a unique file name by appending _uniqueId. In my case, all the files are uniquely named and I am not worried about file name clashes.

Is it advisable to directly upload the documents to record cente

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?

Web Service for uploading documents into SharePoint

WS UploadService is a web service written for Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 and Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 and is meant for uploading documents into SharePoint. I have just uploaded the zip file to GotDotNet.com so it will take some time before the zip file appears in the list of downloads. For the time being, you can download the zip file from the following location

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.

Seperate out the Document Libraries to individual Sites in MOSS 2007

We are using the MOSS 2007 with SP2. We are having three different Document Libraries for three different projects under same site. We have the requirement to migrate each library to shift to the individual sites. We need to do this with all the content, settings and and the permissions. It's fine to migrate the database and settings individually i.e. content database seperately and site settings seperately. Is anyone have this kind of migration?

Unable to export/copy documents out of SharePoint 2007 libraries

Hi, A client had an issue a few months ago where their MOSS 2007 home site collection had to be restored after a major crash, it now works but they have loads of issues with the restored site(no need to go into) now I am trying to migrate the Data (files and folders only, no security or metadata) to a SharePoint 2010 installation, the problem is that I am unable to get any of the files out of SharePoint. I decided against an upgrade or any form of site migration as I might only be taking the problems with me. i am just trying to copy the files using the "Library - Actions - Open with Windows Explorer". The Explorer view window opens but if i select a file and move it into a folder on the server nothing happens, If I select a folder with files and folders in it then only the root folder is copied over but it is empty.  i don't want to repair any of the issues with the old site as it's only wasting time, can anybody think of a way to get all of the data out of Sharepoint 2007, without taking any of the lists or libraries or any other Sharepoint settings. I only need to keep the folder structure and files within them as i don't need any metadata and am recreating the security again seperately on the new SharePoint setup. Anybody have any ideas or know of free/trial products that i

cannot edit documents in newly created libraries

I've been struggling with this for about a month now, so it's really makin' me crazy at this point! Here's what seems to be happening: My document libraries that were in in place pre-grade are fine, but in all the new document libraries that have been created post-2010 upgrade, the only way anyone can edit these documents is to go in thru Explorer view.. My Library settings are set to 'open in client application' since we're only using Foundation, but I have tried 'open in browser' with no luck. Edit document & Check out are both disabled on the ribbon. I've tried different permission levels - system account, document owner, you name it. I'm hoping someone here might have a fresh idea or two. Thanks in advance! T

Using a List View web part to display documents from multiple document libraries from different site

Hi there, I am trying to have one web part display documents (or list items) from different document libraries (or different lists) from different site collections. I have achieved this under a single site collection using Data View Web Part (using SPD). I have also achieved displaying a single document library (or a list) from a different site collection by using List View Web Part. but I am not sure how to get my head around displaying documents or list items from different document libraries or lists across site collections. I have thought of using SPSiteDataQuery or ListViewByQuery, but they all seem to focus one site collection at a time. If any of you have done this before, please share your best practice on this one with me. Much appreciated. Clark

Sharepoint 2010 uploading documents programatically

Hi All I'm a newbie and hoping that someone can help me with a problem that I am having. I have written a WinForms app to upload documents to Sharepoint 2010 document library using client object model. It works great unless the file is more than 3MB. The error returned is "The remote server returned an error (400) Bad Request". The files are being uploaded from my local machine to the SharePoint 2010 site. I searched the internet for 2 days trying to find a solution to this without any joy. I have tried increasing the maxRequestLength and executionTimeout in web.config. The program uses a file stream to put the file in a btye array which then becomes the content of a filecreationinformation object. As I said, it loads files OK if they are less than 3MB, so I think that the code is OK. The max document size in SharePoint is 50mb. I really need some help please....   Blaithin

Error while downloading and uploading Documents from document library



We have a set of documents in a document library, which we are trying to download. if i click on the document and try to download, it takes a lot of time and then reports a error message.

Exception from HRESULT: 0x80041050

Now when we also try to upload documents, it does not allow us to upload the documents and reports a exception.

We tried to research through through the error, it gaves us while downloading the document, it is somewhat related to the Antivirus issues and looks like a document that is infected. This is only related to some documents and not all documents.


Let us know if there is any where to work around this issue and allow users to upload and download documents or how to tackle the antivirus issue.


It looks like the SharePoint antivirus has flagged off some of the so-called infected documents with some non-zero values, the resolution to this as suggested by microsoft is to re-run the anti-virus, so that the document value can be set to zero again and have the file downloaded.

Your help will be highly appreciated in this regards.
