Posted By:      Posted Date: April 10, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#

Hi all,


I have a problem with SharePoint search not re-indexing a file after it has been modified.  For example I have a document which used to have the text testing12345 in the document so if I searched using that name I would find the document.  However I have now modified the document and removed testing12345 for the document saved it and since re-indexed the site.  Despite doing this performing a search for testing12345 it still finds my original document even though it no longer has and references.

is it possible for a document to be visable in Sharepoint without actually being written to the data

Very Very much appreciation for any help. Thanks so much A client lost files and the database was restored but the files are still missing. Any ideas if it is possible for a document to be visable in SharePoint without being written to the database? I was told previously that checkout could be the issue. So the question is: If the Doc library required check out for editing and the doc was never checked in it could show up in a export to spreadsheet but not be commited to the database. Basically the spreadsheet shows it was in there, but a restore of the contentdb does not have it

How to Configure search for meta-data based retrieval of documents into Document Libraries?


I need to crawl update of newly created/updated documents within document libraries. My understanding says i need to create the new content source and associate the crawls.. and newly created and updated documents would be crawled in the next sceduled incremental crawl. But my question is how i can create the dadicated content source for document libraries as the content as there is no such content source type.

Any suggestion or workaround would be greatly appreciated.



Bulk Import Documents and Meta Data to Document Library SP 2007


RE: SharePoint 2007


I have an excel file with rows and rows of META data and one column is a file name. This filename column maps to a physical file I have as well.

There are 1000's of rows with matching files.

Is there a bulk import tool for free or minimal cost?

I understand I may need to build a document library and create the same column names as the META data, but manually adding these will take me years!

Thanks Daren 

Sharepoint 2007-Maximum document libraries that can be added to Linked Data Source


I have a requirement as below:

1. I need to create a web part which allows users to filter the document library columns based on their needs.

2. There are around 10 document libraries with around 11,000 files and I linked them using Linked Data Source.

3. I tried to create a DVWP. It inserted all the records thought but I am not able to apply the Data View properties like 'Filter', 'Sort' and 'Group'.

Is there a limit to the number of records that can be added to a linked data source. If so how many?

Is there any other way we can do it?

Working with SharePoint document libraries

Document libraries are collections of files that you can share with team members on a Web based on Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services. For example, you can create a library of common documents for a project, and team members can use their Web browsers to find the files, read them, and make comments. Users with Microsoft Office 2003 can check out and edit the files as if they resided on a local or network drive.

By default, your team Web site comes with a built-in document library named Shared Documents, which is listed on the Quick Launch bar as well as on the Documents and Lists page.

SharePoint Document Workspaces for Developers

Office 2003 is being released this month, and a cast of supporting applications is already available. One of these is Windows SharePoint Services 2.0, the free team add-on for Windows Server 2003. If you're not familiar with SharePoint Services basics, take a look at What Developers Need to Know About Windows SharePoint Services. In this article, I'm going to drill into one key place where SharePoint and Office 2003 overlap: document workspaces

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.

SharePoint document migration challenges when migrating files and folders

There are several challenges when migrating documents to Microsoft SharePoint. While these challenges can be overcome, they are a real pain if the migration source, content and file systems are not SharePoint friendly.

SharePoint: Add a Recycle Bin to Windows SharePoint Services for Easy Document Recovery


Windows SharePoint Services helps improve collaboration and workflow while protecting documents and intellectual property. But one feature is conspicuously missing - an easy way to back up and restore deleted files from document libraries. In this article, the authors take advantage of the extensibility of WSS and its server-side and client-side object models to build a restore feature that works like the Recycle Bin in Windows Explorer.

Approve/Reject a document using Sharepoint web services


Is there a way to approve / reject a file that has been published on sharepoint 2007 using web services only?

Say there is a document 'A.xls' that was published as a major version by the author. I want the admin to be able to approve/reject it from a site outside the Sharepoint application. I know there is a workflow involved in this, but is there a web service that exposes the functionalities attributed to this workflow?


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?

SharePoint Document Parser



I have a requirement to parse an email address from a document when added to a document library, unfortunately, the document's are not formatted in any standard fashion, although they are all word documents which is an advantage.

I have read that SharePoint has a word document parser out of the box, so am wondering whether it can be configured to parse email addresses as meta data? Otherwise, I can write a rundimentary parser myself using regular expressions, and plug this into SharePoint, however, have no idea where to start.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,


Sharepoint 2007 Document Search and Highlight in Office 2007 and PDF


We will be implementing Document Search (DOC, DOCX, PDF, TIFF, PPT, PPTX, XLS, XLSX) for one of our customers. We were evaluating a few MOSS 2007 based solutions, and happened to visit your site.  What we intend to achieve are the following functionalities:


a.       User should be able to search through 1000s of documents which are in a Sharepoint Document Library

b.      The documents could be in English, International Languages.

c.       Each document is 70-100 pages, and therefore it is important that the Search Results show the relevant pages on which the Search Text appears (Get Highlighted) within each document . Clicking on the link will take the user to the right page.

d.      The additional requirement is Synonym search. So, I can search for

If you have SharePoint Document Versioning Enabled, do you also use the retention settings?

I am looking for stats on how many environments are out there using document versioning in there libraries but are perhaps not selecting the retention settings. (e.g. "Optionally limit the number of versions to retain" section) This as we all know in SharePoint is a major cause of database growth.
