How to update a document field using Taxonomy term programatically

Posted By:      Posted Date: December 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint


I have created a custom column name "Region" (Managed Metada type and associated with Term - Region which has following terms: NA, EU, Asia, Africa)

The column Region is associated with two custom type: Folder custom type and Document Custom Type.

When a folder is created, the user select the Region filed using Manage Metadata.

When a document is created/imported/updated in the folder we need to update the region field automatically based on the folder data.

I am planning to create Event Receiver to handle such request.  how to get the value from folder type for Region field and populate the same value to the document type.

Multiline text field in document library and item update from Word trouble

Hi I have faced a bit of odd problem. Here is the scenario: I have document library with text columns (multiple lines of text) that are set to unlimited length. I have a workflow that runs with Word documents (.docx) that stores information in XML to this field. Everything works perfectly until document is edited in Word and saved back to document library. After Word saves my document in document library, the multiline text field is "cutted", only 7 rows of text is saved to my field. I have tried hiding my text field, making it sealed or readonly, but still Word breaks my field. Funniest thing is that when editing document in Word, this field should not have any changes (meaning that I dont show my "long text field" in document information panel back in Word). I have tried also creating event handler to handle itemupdating event in document library where I switch spweb.parserenabled property to false and in itemupdated event I switch it back on. Also I have tried to remove all line changes from XML with no luck. This XML saving to long text field works perfectly with many other places but in this one environment this does not seem to work :( I am looking forward to any suggestions what to try next. I have been wondering about using the eventhandlers and trying to "protect" my text field with some logic but that is still just a thought.   T

SharePoint Batch Update Auto Increment Field Value

Update a field in a gridview to False on a Button Click

 Hi, Ive got a list of records in a gridview (from an SQLDataSource) where a field value is set to True.  I've also added a "reset" button in a template field at the start of the row in the Gridview. What I would like to do is allow the user to click the reset button on a particular row and 'reset' the true value to 'false' (updating the source data). Are there any idiot proof tutorials to do this??? Many thanks for your help! Fiorano

Taxonomy term store additions via site setting are not visible to user in RC1

Is see that its possible to define Taxonomy term store via SharePoint main central  admin page. But when I try to add term store entries via a new site in the same collection ....  site setting -> Site Administration -> Term store management any new entries are not visible. That is to say when a user starts to enter a tag the helper dialog does not show any values added via the site but all values add via the central admin do appear. this seems like a bug and the is in RC1 or am I doing something wrong

How do you update a Lookup Field from CAML by Name rather than ID

Hi, I have the following batch update in my code: xml += "<Method ID='" + currentID + "' Cmd='Update'>"; xml +=   "<Field Name='ID'>" + ID + "</Field>"; xml +=   "<Field Name='FileRef'>" + fileRef + "</Field>"; xml +=   "<Field Name='Title'>" + doc.NewFileName + "</Field>"; xml += "<Field Name='Keywords'>" + doc.Keywords + "</Field>"; xml +=   "<Field Name='Select_x0020_Type'>" + ((doc.TypeName == "General") ? 1 : 2) + "</Field>"; xml +=   "<Field Name='Population'>" + "Demography" + "</Field>"; xml += "</Method>"; The Population field is a lookup. It works if I put the ID of the ListItem in there, but not if I put the name - I need to put the name in. Can anyone help? Thanks. John.

How can I get search to work for a Custom Document Library with a few third-party field types?

Hi, Using WSS 3.0 with SQL Server 2008 for Workgroups I have created a Custom Document Library (2,462 files - copied from folder into Explorer view and then renamed using Batch Update in web services i.e. "BaseName" field) - basically it uses three fields that are of "Filtered Lookup" (a field type from a third party). The document library is included in the search (i.e. Advanced Settings), but it displays none of the files - bascially not included in search at all with all testing I have done. I created a new Document Library called "Test" and uploaded a document and it is included in the search. Is there any way I can debug this. Is there a log file? Is there something in the Search Database that might help? Your help would be really appreciated as this is my last issue - and its soooo important to the deliverable. Thanks. John.

Can I update Project Field value via some javascript?

Hi there, I've a webpart that's designed to update some project field value, this webpart is  located on a Project Details Pages. On this project details page, there is another MS Build-in webpart call Project Field webpart. Now when I clicked the Save ribbon button, the project field webpart will raise some client calls, at the same time my custom webpart will raise a post-back(update value via PSI) call which will kill the client calls..So is it possible for me update the project filed value via some javascript? so I'll no longer raise a postback. Or is it possible for me to capture the client calls event for MS webpart, then I can fired my own PSI code? Thank you,   Regards, Joe

Unable to filter the "E-mail To" field in email enabled document library

Hi, We have setup a few email enabled docuement libraries to store emails relating to project work. Is there a way to make the "E-mail To" field in the library be filtered? It is greyed out and doesnt give you the option. The "E-mail From" and "E-mail Subject" are able to have a filter applied to them but for some reason the "E-mail To" field wont let you filter the content. The probelm is that there are over 500 files in the library and the easiest way to find messages is to be able ot filter this column in the library if it is at all possible.
