problem in applying SharePoint Designer Workflows to Lists in my Web application

Posted By:      Posted Date: November 29, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

Hi Mark,

I am so happy finding your forum.

I have installed MOSS 2007 with SP2 on a Windows Server 2008. I had no problem in configuring and creating Web Applications and Sites. However, there seems to be a problem in applying SharePoint Designer Workflows to Lists in my Web application. The problem is that the workflow I create to start automatically when an item in the List is changed doesn't work. The workflows works fine if it's started manually from an item in the list, but it's doesn’t work when it's started automatically with an item change in the list. I have checked the workflow on another MOSS 2007 installation on Server 2003 and it works fine. Have I missed something in the configurations?

Thanks for y

Problem with SharePoint Designer 2007 and Custom List Forms

  

I created several forms (Create/Edit/View) for a SharePoint list, using Custom List Forms.  I'm using Content Types in the list to ensure that each item only has the necessary fields.  When I created the ASPX forms, and inserted the Custom List Forms, I selected the correct Content Type, and I got the right fields inserted in the form.

Now, for some reason I can't identify, every time I create a new form, and insert a Custom List Form, SPD is bringing ALL fields from the list, instead of just bringing the fields included in the selected Content Type.

I have tried many different things to solve the problem, including creating new lists/content types/forms, etc. but SPD is doing the same thing all the time.

Can somebody tell me what may have gone wrong in SPD or MOSS?

Thanks


problem rename sharepoint 2010 search service application admin database

  
Hi all, i have a problem that hopefully someone has an answer to.  i am not too familiar with sharepoint so please excuse my ignorance. we have sharepoint 2010 on a windows 2008r2 server.  everything seems to work fine.  but as you know, the default database names are horrendous.  i have managed to rename all of them, except for the "search service application" admin database. the default is: Search_Service_Application_DB_<guid> the other 2 databases (crawl and property) were renamed without a problem. we are following the article from technet on how to rename the search service admin db (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-nz/library/ff851878%28en-us%29.aspx).  it says to enter the following command: $searchapp | Set-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication -DatabaseName "new database name" -DatabaseServer "dbserver" however, i get an error about identity being null.  no big deal, i add the -Identity switch and the name of my search service application.  but the real problem comes the error it throws:   Set-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication : The requested database move was aborted as the associated search application is not paused. At line:1 char:54 + $searchapp | Set-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication <<<<  -Identity "Search Service Application" -DatabaseName "ShareP

Problem With SharePoint Designer 2010 and the Search.asmx Web Service

  
I've created a web service datasource on a 2010 site using SharePoint Designer. When I try to make use of the datasource on a page I get the "The server returned a non-specific error when trying to get data from the data source..." message. The datasource connects to _vti_bin/search.asmx. I am using the QueryServiceSoap port and operation QueryX. I've tried various queryXml strings, including site & people searches using both SQL and keyword syntax. eg <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?><QueryPacket xmlns="urn:Microsoft.Search.Query" Revision="1000"><Query domain="QDomain"> <SupportedFormats><Format>urn:Microsoft.Search.Response.Document.Document</Format></SupportedFormats> <Context>   <QueryText language="en-US" type="MSSQLFT"><![CDATA[ SELECT Size, Rank, Path, Title, Description, Write, Filename, Description, Author FROM scope() WHERE CONTAINS ('"Lorum"') AND  ( ("SCOPE" = 'All Sites') )   ORDER BY "Rank" DESC ]]></QueryText> </Context> <Range><StartAt>1</StartAt><Count>20</Count></Range> <EnableStemming>false</EnableStemming> <TrimDuplicates>true</TrimDuplicates> <IgnoreAllNoiseQuery>true&l

Coping/Replicating the Workflows in SharePoint Designer

  
Hey, I wanted to replicate a very complex workflow which I have already created on one document library (say A) to another document library (say B). I don’t want to create this from scratch as everything is similar for the workflow (for document library B). Can anyone provide any technique to do this in SharePoint Designer?

Sharepoint Designer - Conditional Formatting Problem

  

I've been creating some basic conditional formatting scenarios using Designer ... but I'm very new to this and need help with two topics that I can't get to work.

Problem 1:

When my condition criteria is met I want to display a graphic in the background, but the left of the actual text for that column. 

Example: I have a list of orders and when the priority column says rush, I want to display a small graphic to the left of the text for that column and shift the text to the right by the width of the 40 pixel graphic.  I've looked through all the different settings in the "modify style" dialog box and have used trial and error, but the darn graphic keeps displaying behind the text only. UGH!  I've been working on this for 2 hours now and can't figure it out. 

Can someone tell me what parameters to set so the text is shifted to the right 40 pixels so the background that is left justified is visible?

 

Problem 2:  

In this case, I can't figure out how to write the formula to tell   If  [DUE DATE] is less then 5 days from today I want the background cell to change color. I know how to change the color, but can't figure out the formula for the life of me.  Can someone give me the formula? 

Here's what I tried using in the xpath advanced

Can not access SharePoint Lists from ASP.NET web application

  

Hi,

I don't know if this is the right place for this but is related to SharePoint.

using (SPSite site = new SPSite("http://server/siteName/"))
     {
       if (site != null)
       {
         using (SPWeb web = site.OpenWeb())
         {
           foreach (SPList myList in web.Lists)
           {
             lbLists.Items.Add(myList.Title.ToString));             
           }
            web.Close();

          }
          site.Close();
        }
      }

Example this code above:

I connected remotelly on the server, and in VS 2010 created a new ASP.NET Web Site. Added a new .aspx page and in code behind in the Page_Load event handler i put the code above. (lbLists is a ListBox on the .aspx page).

When i run this page and try to see the results in browser it doesen't work!!

The same code works perfectly on a windows form application!! What is the reason why it is not working?

It ment to not work? How can i make a web application (ASP.NET) that i can access a SharePoint site programmatically and display the items?

Then i want to deploy this app and run it in browser.

Thanks!
