### Sharepoint: In Calculated Column, Code with multiple "IF" condition does not work.

Implemantation:ÃÂ ÃÂ CalculateÃÂ expected resolveÃÂ date exclude "Saturday" and "Sunday"ÃÂ ÃÂ based on Priority and Severity.Columns are:1. Priority:2. Severity:3. Raised on: Date record createdCode:ÃÂ Below is the code which contains multiple "If" conditions. For quick undersatnding, i separated major If condition. Below code does not work and sharepoint gives me Sytax error message. =IF(OR(Priority="Critical",Severity="Critical"),IF(TEXT(WEEKDAY([Raised on]+1),"dddd")="Saturday",[Raised on]+3,[Raised on]+1), ÃÂ  ÃÂ  IF(OR(Priority="HIGH",Severity="HIGH"), IF(TEXT(WEEKDAY([Raised on]+1),"dddd")="Saturday",[Raised on]+4, IF(TEXT(WEEKDAY([Raised on]+2),"dddd")="Saturday",[Raised on]+4,[Raised on]+2)) , ÃÂ  IF(OR(Priority="MEDIUM",Severity="MEDIUM"), IF(TEXT(WEEKDAY([Raised on]+1),"dddd")="Saturday",[Raised on]+5, IF(TEXT(WEEKDAY([Raised on]+2),"dddd")="Saturday",[Raised on]+5, IF(TEXT(WEEKDAY([Raised on]+3),"dddd")="Saturday",[Raised on]+5,[Raised on]+3)) ) , ÃÂ  IF(OR(Priority="LOW",Severity="LOW"), IF(TEXT(WEEKDAY([Raised on]+1),"dddd")="Saturday",[Raised on]+6, IF(TEXT(WEEKDAY([Raised on]+2),"dddd")="Saturday",[Raised on]+6, IF(TEXT

### ASP.NET Workflow: Web Apps That Support Long-Running Operations

Integrating workflow into ASP.NET applications means communicating with activities via a workflow queue and hosting the runtime in the global application class. We'll show you how.

### Workflow E-mails with Long Text Truncate the Text

The title is pretty self-explanatory.ÃÂ  I have a few fields that are generated from some Infopath Forms.ÃÂ  The text, however, truncates and doesn't display the entire text.

Anyone have any suggestions?

### SharePoint 2010 Long Starting if start workflow programatically

In SharePoint 2010, I'm starting workflow #2 programatically from my workflow #1. See code below:

```					SPList currentList = web.Lists[new Guid(ListId)];
SPListItem currentListItem = currentList.GetItemById(ListItem);

//resolve any lookup parameters
string workflowId = base.ProcessStringField(WorkflowIdentifier);

//find workflow association by name

if (workflowAssoc != null)
{
//start the workflow
SPWorkflow workflow = site.WorkflowManager.StartWorkflow(currentListItem, workflowAssoc, workflowAssoc.AssociationData, SPWorkflowRunOptions.Synchronous);
}
```

And workflow #2  will hang with Starting status (1-10 minutes), Then the workflow #2 status would be modified  to Completed.

I couldn't find how to start the workflow # 2 immediately and complete immediately without several minutes delay

### Trying to set Calendar Time Interval Using Calculated Column, but getting Error

ÃÂ

So i was trying to use a calculated column that added 7 days to the start date of a calendar item. The calculated column worked fine because i checked with several tests. Then i tried using the Column as the End Time in the Time Interval Setting in the Calendar View. This broke Sharepoint. Not the normal graceful error im using to seeing from Sharepoint but the Server Error Page when a dump happens in a ASP page. I havent enabled the full error page because i assume its not like i can fix it, i dont have the source code.

ÃÂ

Does anyone else experience this? If so is it a known problem and being worked on?

ÃÂ

Thanks!

### Use Sharepoint Calendar Start Time field in calculated column

I'm trying to limit the calendar view to current week using the Sharepoint defined field Start Time. However, when I display the serial number behind the Start Time it looks like it is actually giving me the serial number for the Created Date field. I believe it is because the appointment is reoccurring but I'm hoping there is a way around it. I created a new testdate field and manually entered the date and set those appointments as all day events however they are not reocurring appointments. The testdate returns the correct serial number however the start time returns an incorrect serial number. SerialNumber1=DATE(YEAR([Start Time]),MONTH([Start Time]),DAY([Start Time])) SerialNumber2=DATE(YEAR([testdate]),MONTH([testdate]),DAY([testdate])) Start Time  SerialNumber1 Testdate  SerialNumber2 8/31/2010 40420 8/31/2010 40421 8/31/2010* 40405    9/1/2010* 40405    9/2/2010* 40405    9/7/2010 40427 9/7/2010 40428 9/13/2010* 40405    9/14/2010 40434 9/14/2010 40435 9/14/2010* 40405    9/15/2010* 40405    *These are reoccurring appointments scheduled as all day events. The others were entered as one time appointments scheduled as all day events.

### Workflow 3.5 Activity property is null in condition and nowhere else

I have an activity that has properties that look something like this (they're set up as proper dependency properties, I just kept it simple here): public List<MyType> TypeList { get; set; }public Int32 Index { get; set; }public MyType SelectedType { get; set; } and an execution that just does this: SelectedType = TypeList[Index]; TypeList and Index are values that I set from other activities. I don't set SelectedType to anything in the activity properties, I just let it get set in the execution. Now I know for a fact that SelectedType is getting set properly, I can even point another activity to it and print out some values from it. So I'm quite positive that there's nothing wrong with that activity. However, I have an if activity with a condition that looks like this: ((MyActivity)GetActivityByName("activity1")).SelectedType != null and it evaluates to false (meaning it evaluated SelectedType as null). I'm pretty sure that that activity cast is correct (I do things like that all the time), and if it weren't wouldn't I get a null reference exception when trying to access SelectedType? So I'm pretty sure I'm not doing anything wrong here, but for some reason SelectedType is coming up null in that condition and no where else. It's almost as if the condition is being evaluated before the activity is being run, but the activity comes well before the condi

### Workflow Runtime and Long Running Processes

I am trying to get a handle on the fact that applications have to manage the persistance of workflows directly. in 4.0.  If I set a workflow to run every night at 3:00 AM and then be persisted, how will I know that my application will be awake and ready to do the job.  I know that SharePoint currently uses a timer on the server which fires off every 5 minutes (default).

### Fill person/group column with workflow

Hi all, I would like to retrieve the 'Department' value of the creator of a list-item. Therefore I created a column named 'Department' of type person/group, show field 'department' From a worflow created with SharePoint Designer, when a item is added to the list, I fill the column 'Department' with the field 'created by'. The result is that the column 'Department' nicely displays the Department of the creator of the added item. When I do the same for a library, the column Department don't get filled, and the workflow keeps the state 'Started'. Any idea what I'm doing wrong? Kind regards. #Update When I add a new document te the library, the column 'Department' stay's empty and the workflow keeps the status 'Starting' But when I save a new document, open it again, edit it and save it again, the column 'Department' shows the department of the creator !!

### Weird Date vs Date/Time issue using a calculated column

I'm attempting to use the fab 40 attendance template. I don't need the time to show - Im able to hide that on the forms with jquery (endusersharepoint.com thank you!!) I WAS ATTEMPTING to create a calculated column called Start Date where the formula simply reads '=[Start Time]' When it's set to display 'Date Only' the date is off by a day. If I switch it to 'Date & Time' I get the correct date. Huh?

### Set a Calculated column as hidden in a content type

Hello, I'm building a custom list with several columns, including a Calculated column. This calculated column simply takes the value of a choice column in the same list to convert this value to a single line of text value. I do this because when adding a lookup column to this list, I cannot select Choice columns as additional columns, but I can add the calculated column. Speaks for itself that this calculated column only needs to exist in the background, and end users should not see this column in the Add/Edit/Display forms. In add/edit forms the column is not displayed, but in the display form it gets displayed. Piece of cake I thought, I'll just set it as hidden in the content type used for the list. When I open the column the column settings (required/optional/hidden) is grayed out, so I cannot set it to hidden. In SP2007 this was possible, why can't I do this anymore in SP2010? Do I miss some feature in order to do this, or is there a good reason why this seems to have changed in SP2010?
