CAML query to check if user is member of a specific group


I've got a nested query caml which basically should check 3 things:

  1. Check if a task has been assigned directly to the ucrrent user
  2. Check if a task has been assigned to a group the user is in
  3. Check if the user is member of a specific

The first to bullet points work like a charm, but I can't figure out how to get the last one to work. Here is what I thought should work:

query += "<Where>";
query += "<Eq><Membership Type=\"CurrentUserGroups\">";
query += "<Value Type=\"String\">Name of my specific group</Value>";
query += "</Membership></Eq>";
query += "</Where>";

Somehow it doesn't seem to be the correct approach, is there somebody who can help me out on this? Thanks

Count Query Execution


I have a class that being used to connect with the DB. Now I want to count how many times each web request executes the queries, but I've no idea where to store the counted value. I mean, Session wont, ViewState wont work as site also have webservices. What else I can use ?


We have the following query:   SELECT H.VEHICLE_ID,                 COUNT(ISNULL(H.HISTORY_ID, 0))            FROM VEHICLES V LEFT OUTER JOIN VEHICLE_HISTORY H              ON V.VEHICLE_ID = H.VEHICLE_ID           WHERE H.SPEED >= 65             AND CONVERT(DATE, H.GPS_TIME) = CONVERT(DATE, DATEADD(DAY, -1, GETDATE()))        GROUP BY H.VEHICLE_ID;   Unfortunately, if there inst a record for a vehicle for the current day in VEHICLE_HISTORY, or there inst a record over 65 in VEHICLE_HISTORY, the query simply does not include the result. How can we include all results (i.e. return 0)? What we want is the number of rows returned to match the number of rows in the vehicles table. I thought doing the LEFT OUTER JOIN would take care of this, and return a result for all vehicles.   Thanks.

SharePoint 2007 to Access 2007 - Issues grouping by "Person or Group" field type/column

We are on SharePoint 2007 and using Access 2007.  The SharePoint list contains a column called Assigned Person, column type: Person or Group, single selection, displaying only the name 1) When we Open with Access and Export a copy of the data, then create a report from that table, we do not have the option to group on Assigned Person.  2) When we Open with Access and Link to data on the SharePoint site, then create a report from that list, when we group by Assigned Person... The same person has 2 groups - there are is no other grouping or sorts on the list, and i can't locate a correlation to another field to show why they would have to collections for the same person The Person or Group column sorts "from smallest to largest" as though it is a number field. The list is a task/activity tracking system we created custom for our needs.  We want to pull a weekly report, grouped by Assigned Person, but cannot get access to work.  We do not want to resort to anything more complex, as it takes a much longer process to have reports pulled by Chrystal or one of those types of applications.  And we cannot change out the field for something like a Choice column as the list already has a very large amount of content.  Can anyone assist? Is there a setting hiding somewhere that is causing the problem? 

Efficiency: new column in source query or derived column task?

Hi All, I've just started working on an SSIS package that pulls data from an OLE DB Source by a query. A new column needs to be added based on the value of a queried column. I was wondering if it's better to do that in the query or with a derived column? A simple example: I have a table that contains CustomerName and CustomerCode (this one can be V /valid/ or I /invalid/). I need to store the CustomerCodeDesc in a separate column in the destination table. Is it better to alter the query like this: SELECT CustomerName, CustomerCode, CASE WHEN CustomerCode = 'V' THEN 'Valid' ELSE 'Invalid' END AS CustomerCodeDesc FROM CustomerTable Or is it better to use a DerivedColumn task in the DataFlow? Or maybe it doesn't really matter...

SSAS 2008 attritube hierarchy doesn't group records and repeat rows

We are having problems with the dimension attributes in lower level hierarchies not grouping under 1 single level. Here is the hierarchy: VP    College      Department         Departmental Course            Course Level               Course Number The top 3 levels are grouping correctly without duplicate rows and they don't have compoud keys. The lowest 3 levels are not grouped correctly and they have compounds keys because the attributes are not unique by themself. The result of the hierarchy looks like this: VP Academic Affairs    Business School of Management        International Business School            Mgm101                 Lower                       Course Number 123            Mgm101                Upper
