Sharepoint survey- feature for export to spreadsheet

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

Hi All

I am working on sharepoint survey and I want to extend the functionality EXPORT TO SPREADSHEET of survey list. By default when I click on EXPORT TO SPREADSHEET  option it generates an MS Excel sheet with multiple columns. There is a column Created By in which default value is System Account.

I want to change this default value with currently login user`s Logon Name. Is this possible?

Is there any custom feature for this?

Sharepoint 3.0 - Export to Spreadsheet - owssrv.dll


Caveat: New to SP, just took over this in the wake of our current sysadm's departure.


So users want to export lists/libraries data to spreadsheet. They get a "To export a list, you must have a Windows SharePoint Services-compatible application." and when you click ok, it downloads owssvr.dll

I have no idea what to do with this, and the lack of information when searching the two subject together do not produce solid information.

Please assist. Working with office2007 on the client machine.

Configuring Profile Image Export in SharePoint 2010

It's no secret that I am thrilled with the new social features of SharePoint 2010. I am most excited about the new Profile Picture handling. I strongly believe that the more we can show the faces of our colleagues to one another the more connected we will feel. Clearly Microsoft feels that way as witnessed by the many features that make use of the Profile Image like the Activity Feed and Colleagues list

Cannot export from a Report in SharePoint integrated mode in a server hardend environment


We have installed Reporting Services 2008 integrated with MOSS with SQL Server 2008 on a 64 bit platform.

The environment has worked fine in test (but the servers are not hardend).

With the production environment, any attempt to export from a report into another format (eg excel, tiff etc) results in an unexpected error within SharePoint requiring closing the browser and reopening.

There are no details behind the error. We can also find no traces of the error within any of the logs (SharePoint, Reporting Services, Windows event log etc)

When the report is opened directly from Reporting Services (ie http://servername:8080/reportserver) the report exports fine. Similarly, if the report is opened directly from Report Builder 2, or through opening Report Builder 2 from SharePoint there is no issue. This issue only happens when the report is invoked directly through SharePoint.


We can only assume that this issue has something to do with server hardening/UAC as we have

Document Library "export to spreadsheet" doesn't export all columns in Excel 2003

Hi, we are working with MOSS 2007, Infopath Forms Services, KPIs and Excel 2003.

Deactivating web part feature in sharepoint

Hey guys. I've developed a web part using the wspbuilder tool (Web part with feature). When deployed (to a site collection), you have to activate the feature in order to use this web part - so far so good. However, when deactivating the feature, the web part remains on any site where it's been added, and furthermore, it's still available in the web part gallery? Is this expected behaviour? Is there no way of removing the web part from all subsites in the site collection, and also remove it from the web part gallery? Thanks ;)

Unable to export/copy documents out of SharePoint 2007 libraries

Hi, A client had an issue a few months ago where their MOSS 2007 home site collection had to be restored after a major crash, it now works but they have loads of issues with the restored site(no need to go into) now I am trying to migrate the Data (files and folders only, no security or metadata) to a SharePoint 2010 installation, the problem is that I am unable to get any of the files out of SharePoint. I decided against an upgrade or any form of site migration as I might only be taking the problems with me. i am just trying to copy the files using the "Library - Actions - Open with Windows Explorer". The Explorer view window opens but if i select a file and move it into a folder on the server nothing happens, If I select a folder with files and folders in it then only the root folder is copied over but it is empty.  i don't want to repair any of the issues with the old site as it's only wasting time, can anybody think of a way to get all of the data out of Sharepoint 2007, without taking any of the lists or libraries or any other Sharepoint settings. I only need to keep the folder structure and files within them as i don't need any metadata and am recreating the security again seperately on the new SharePoint setup. Anybody have any ideas or know of free/trial products that i

Export Sharepoint Calendar (with Recurring) to Excel

Hi Everyone, I have a user who manages several Sharepoint calendars who likes to export lists and calendars to excel.  Currently when there is a recursive item, it only gets sent out once.  I have set up a list view that shows recurring events, but when exported to excel, it goes back to only showing each instance once. I know that the concern is that it will generate infinite entries, but is there a way to export this to excel showing all of the recurring items?  I have tried many times and looked on the internet with no success.  So far I'm only using the included parts of sharepoint, so I haven't looked into 3rd party software or writing my own code. Any help is appreciated, Thanks! -Casey
