How to pass current user to bdc list to filter data.

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

I have a bdc list which I want to load on the basis of the currently logged in user. I've tried to use the Current User Filter Web Part provided OOB but it doesn't seem to solve the problem cu'z I can't bind the current user value of the webpart to any column of the bdc list.

The problem is, I want to load the records based on the current user by passing the user name to Stored Procedure. Does any one know how to do that ???? Please F1.

How can I filter a Sharepoint 2007 libarry list based on current user login?


Hi all.

I would like to know how I can filter a SharePoint library list based on current user login.

Suppose I have created the followings:

1) A SharePoint form library containing bunch of uploaded InfoPath form data.

2) The InfoPath form template contains a promoted text field called "TargetUser" to store user domain login (ex: DOMAIN\JOE) and every InfoPath form file in the library has a valid domain name stored in the "TargetUser" field.

I have created a custom view for the form library and would like to filter this view so only items whose "TargetUser" field matches current user's login ID are displayed.

I went to Edit View page to customize the view and tried to use the [Me] function but I got a "Filter value is not a valid text string" message instead when clicking OK. Apparently [Me] returns a Person/Group data type and the filter cannot compare its value to that of "TargetUser".

I tried using text functions (ex: TEXT([Me],"") hoping to extract default string value from [Me]. The filter accepts the parameter without any error but the resulting fitlered list does not display any items at all.

I have googled this subject for hours but I have not found any solution.

It would be greatly appreciated if anyone can help me t

Creating Sites/Lists/List Items under Current User Context in SharePoint By Using SPUserToken

Usually we do this by performing the action under RunWithElevatedPrivileges method and updating the listitem using SPListItem.SystemUpdate() method (see here). but this approach has its own flaws like (RunWithElevatedPrivileges will run under system account, we cannot use SystemUpdate for SPSite,SPWeb,SPList, since it runs under system we will "CreatedBy" by as SystemAccount).

create current user filter in sharepoint designer or wss3

hi, how can i create a current user filter in sharepoint designer?

can a Workflow access a stored procedure and pass the parameters from the list data to the stored pr

The reason that I would like to consider this functionailty is because my table architecture is complicated and I do not want to modify my master table to accept all of this data where some of the data should be normalized into sub tables.  Has anyone see evidence of the stored-procedure parm approach?  Is this best accomplished through VS 2010 or can I do it through SPD? Thanks

Filter External List by a range of data

I have an external list web part that I am currently using a choice filter on to filter by a certain status.  The options are yes, no, or (empty).  However, I would like to be able to add an additional option to filter where the person has the previous status set to no, but has a value in a different field greater than 90. I realize that the choice filter probably wouldn't do this, and that I could do this easily with separate list views, where I have some sort of web part that can change the list views on the fly. I would think I could use one of those list filters to do this, but when I tried to do that for my original problem, I was unable to connect the filter to my external list. I could connect the list view filter to any internal list without an issue however.  Somebody commented on my old thread that I posted as cptInsane0 that I could just make an infopath view form that has buttons that do this.  I have dabbled with infopath a little bit, but I wasn't able to get infopath to connect to my external list either.  I first had to connect to an internal one, and then for some reason I could add the external list as an alternate data source. I can't be the first person who has had this issue. Could someone point me in the right direction?

Dynamic Data Foreign Key Filter - how to limit the # of dropdowns on the list view



I have a visual basic website in VS 2010 framework 4, linx to SQL, with scafolding.... and this dataclass has about 10 foreign key fields, of which all 10 are shown in the list view of the website.  I want the ability to exclude those filters from the list view (or exclude some and keep some), but without eliminating them from the edit forms.  Using <scafoldingcolumn("False")> does the trick to remove them entirely but that will also remove them from the grid/list itself, which I don't want, and remove the column from the edit record views, which I don't want either.

Any help would be great!!!!

Column filter in Business Data List web part does not work for all fields


I have a BDC entity whose fields contain a variety of data – numbers, dates and strings.  When I use the business data list web part I find that some of the columns’ dynamic filtering (accessed from the list’s column header) doesn’t work.  For these problem fields, the filter values load correctly but when I select a value all records disappear.  Initially I thought this was limited to just string columns but there is one string column that does filter correctly.

Here are some things that may be useful to know:

1.       The datasource is a SQL view and all fields are varchar(255)
