Sharepoint library Explorer view - Office 2010 conflict?


Recently upgraded from Office 2007 to 2010.  Some days after install started to receive a message 'you need to activate this product' every time I opened an Office application.  My IT guys did the ncessary to activate Office 2010, but since then my site selection (tab) button on any Sharepoint page will not open the drop-down menu and I cannot change the view of any document library to 'Explorer View'.

I've been looking in forums and other sources and can see this is a known issue with IE8, but when it happened to me, I was using IE7.  The only trigger I can see is the activation of Office 2010

Anyone had similar experience and anyone aware of a fix?

Unable to perform fulltext search for documents in some folders in an SharePoint Document Library


Issue Description : Keywords from certain folders in the Document Library  is not searchable via full text search. For example, the keyword “4MB7106” is not searchable, even though the document is available in the document library. This is content search in a file in a document library, NOT a file name. Any ideas?

Unable to view SharePoint nodes in Server Explorer


Using Visual Studio 2010, I right-click on SharePoint Connections in Server Explorer and select "Add Connection..."  My SharePoint 2010 site is on the same machine, so I enter http://localhost.  (I've also tried the actual machine name, http://sp2010dev.)  The connection is created with the root site at the top and all the nodes underneath (ContentTypes, Features, etc.).  Some of the nodes I can expand (e.g. List Templates expands to show different List Template types; Lists and Libraries expands to show Document Libraries and Lists).  But then when I try to expand further, I get an error message that states the following:

Unable to retrieve information for this node, possibly because the node has been deleted or its connection disrupted.  If the item exists in SharePoint, be sure it is accessible

I have not found any information about this error, and I've exhausted all attempts to permissions above what I've already created.


Unable to save Office 2007 document to SharePoint My Site Personal Documents document library


...also when Office documents are saved to document library they open as Read-only and cannot be saved back to the same document library.

This only happens in my production SharePoint 2007 environment from client XP and IE7 machine.  It does not happen in developement environment (which mirrors production) from client XP/IE7 machines.

Save works fine to SharePoint document libraries from client Win 7 and IE8 machines in both production and development environments.

This only happens when attempting to save to a My Site Personal Documents document library.  Any other document library this behavior does not exist from XP or Win 7 machine.

What settings controls ones ability to save to a personal My site document library.  What setting could be different between prod and dev installations?  It only happens

Upload a File to a SharePoint Document Library - Part I

The following helper class demonstrates a few techniques that allow documents to be uploaded to a SharePoint document library programmatically without using the API or a custom web service. You don't need to specify a document library name, and it will create any folders specified in the URL as required. File meta data will be updated if any properties are passed.

Unable to open pdf from document library MOSS 2007


When I click on a pdf document uploaded in a document library it comes up with a blank page. 

I guess it's trying to open pdf on the browser. I turned off "Display PDF in browser " option in Adobe Preferences, but it doesn't help, same issue.

I tried other browsers too, it's the same issue.

I am able to open all other pdf files local to my machine fine.

I am using IE 8 on my machine (Windows 7) and the Sharepoint server is MOSS 2007.



Can I open the "new" menu in a SharePoint Document Library using Dragon NaturallySpeaking?


When a user, who uses Dragon NaturallySpeaking, says "new" when viewing a Document Library the default content type is selected and the associated application (e.g. Microsoft Word) is launched. This scenario is okay for Content Type selection since the Microsoft Office applications will prompt for the metadata once the file is saved.

If the user needs to create new folders in the Document Library however they need to expand the "new" dropdown menu.

What is the best way for someone using Dragon NaturallySpeaking to expand the "new" menu for a Document Library in SharePoint?

Cannot add SQL Server 2008 R2 Report items to SharePoint Server 2010 document library

Using account which is the primary parent site administrator, can upload RDS and RDL files to the document library (however, cannot open report). User is also a domain admin with SA on the database instances. Cannot add Report Data Source with "New Document" icon. The permissions granted to user '[domain]\[user]' are insufficient for performing this operation. Under "Site Settings", "Managed Shared Schedules" fails with same error.
