ASP:Upload control . Uploading into a SharePoint Document Library Subfolder and FILE NOT FOUND error

RE: ASP:Upload control . Uploading into a SharePoint Document Library Subfolder and FILE NOT FOUND error Two Issues, apparently unrelated. I have subfolders like this /ApplicantDocuments/20 and /ApplicantDocuments/21 (where 20 and 21 are my subfolders and ApplicantDocuments is my library. 1. The below function is erroring with file not found, but I confirmed I'm sending the fully qualify path (i.e c:\test.txt) to System.IO.FileStream content = System.IO.File.Open(documentFileName, System.IO.FileMode.Open); 2. Even if it worked, looking at the code, I'm not using argument foldername.  I'm passing 20 to the argument. How can I make sure it uploads into subfolder 20 of ApplicantDocuments? Thank you.     Just testing in test environment. Will tighten code once it works.   public void UploadDocumentToSite(string foldername, string documentFileName) {      SPSite siteCollection = new SPSite("https://xxxxxx");      SPWeb web = siteCollection.OpenWeb();      //SPSite.AllowUnsafeUpdates = true;      //Web.AllowUnsafeUpdates = true;      string Lib = "ApplicantDocuments";      SPFolder destFolder = web.GetFolder(Lib);      sendmail(documentFileName+" "+foldername);  

How to write an event to manage permissions on a document while uploading, depending on custom field



I am trying to find a solution to manage permissions on a document, while uploading it into a document library. This event has to be fired if a custom field is populated (it's a check box field).

How to write an event for this, i tried writing ItemAdded event, but this is getting fired as soon as a document is uploaded, before coming to the page, where we populate all the fields and hit check in.

can i capture Check-in event.

Please advise.


HTTP 400 Bad Request Error when uploading to document library


I am running MOSS 3007 Standard on Windows 2003. When trying to upload files larger than about 29Mb, I am getting an HTTP 400 Bad request error. The error states "HTTP Error 400 - Request is badly formed." I am able to successfully upload a 28Mb file. Sharepoint is configured to accept files up to 75Mb.

I have done a fair amount of research on this, but none of the solutions seem to apply to our environment. The two most likely candidates do not apply, for example we are NOT running URLScan (there are a variety of solutions suggesting this could be an issue with uploads of 30Mb or more), and we are on 2003 with IIS6, so again the issue relating to 2008 and IIS7 do not apply.

The "Request is badly formed" part of the request is particularly confusing as most issues I have come across where this error is the symptom point to errors in custom code that is trying to talk to SharePoint. We have done none of our own custom coding and this error is occurring when attempting a simple upload to a document library.

Trying to drag and drop the file across when the document library is open in windows explorer also fails.

I did come across someone saying they had a similar problem which was caused by a damaged content database, however in this case, it is occuring regardless of which content database I use, so either they are all corrupt

Unknown Error while uploading a document

hi, While uploading a document , it says 'unknown error' after loading long time. while checking in log file, no entry with respect to this. How to find the cause of this Issue. Please Guide me

Uploading a file to a document library produces access denied error, but only on first try.

Hi I have a task which uses a custom form which is part of a custom workflow.  The form incorporates an asp fileUpload control to allow a user to browse for a local file which they can then select and it will be upload a file to a folder in a document library.  The first time this action is performed the folder in the document library will not exist so the code creates a folder and then uploads the file to it. The problem I have is, the first time users try and upload a file the directory is created in the document library as expected, but then the user gets redirected to the standard SharePoint Access Denied page.  If the user goes back to the task list, then loads the task web page again, selects the same file and hits upload, then the file is uploaded fine. All subsequent file uploads work fine after that for all users. Users have Contribute permissions on the document library. The code to do the upload is as follows.  The task has a "CR Number" associated with it, which the directory in the doc library should be called.  It uploads the file to a stream.  Then gets the url of the web and works out the file url and uploads it.  The creation and checking of the folder in the doc library happens in the getDirUrl method. /// <summary> /// Processes an uploaded file. /// </summary> /// <param name="

Multiline text field in document library and item update from Word trouble

Hi I have faced a bit of odd problem. Here is the scenario: I have document library with text columns (multiple lines of text) that are set to unlimited length. I have a workflow that runs with Word documents (.docx) that stores information in XML to this field. Everything works perfectly until document is edited in Word and saved back to document library. After Word saves my document in document library, the multiline text field is "cutted", only 7 rows of text is saved to my field. I have tried hiding my text field, making it sealed or readonly, but still Word breaks my field. Funniest thing is that when editing document in Word, this field should not have any changes (meaning that I dont show my "long text field" in document information panel back in Word). I have tried also creating event handler to handle itemupdating event in document library where I switch spweb.parserenabled property to false and in itemupdated event I switch it back on. Also I have tried to remove all line changes from XML with no luck. This XML saving to long text field works perfectly with many other places but in this one environment this does not seem to work :( I am looking forward to any suggestions what to try next. I have been wondering about using the eventhandlers and trying to "protect" my text field with some logic but that is still just a thought.   T

Document Set - Problem when uploading multiple files with "Launch forms in a dialog" disabled

Hello, Has anyone come across this before? I have a basic document library for which I have enabled "Allow management of content types" and disabled "Launch forms in a dialog".  Both of these settings are in the "Advanced Settings" page.  Also, the document library does not have versioning enabled and check out is not required. I added the OOTB "Document Set" content type to this document library and allowed OOTB "Document" content type documents in this document set.  This document set does not have any default content. The issue arises after I upload multiple files and click the "Done" button.  After I do this, the browser redirects to the top level of the site!  For example, if I uploaded to my document set at http://server/sites/anyname/doclib, I am redirected to http://server/. This issue has come up in both a standard server and an enterprise server. Steps to repeat issue: Create a document set Open the document set Select "Upload Multiple Documents" Drag and drop or browse for files Click "OK" Click "Done" Actually, this issue also occurs when "Launch forms in a dialog" is enabled.  In this case, you just have to navigate to the upload form directly (with all the necessary query string parameters, of course). Has anyone else seen this issu

Error while downloading and uploading Documents from document library



We have a set of documents in a document library, which we are trying to download. if i click on the document and try to download, it takes a lot of time and then reports a error message.

Exception from HRESULT: 0x80041050

Now when we also try to upload documents, it does not allow us to upload the documents and reports a exception.

We tried to research through through the error, it gaves us while downloading the document, it is somewhat related to the Antivirus issues and looks like a document that is infected. This is only related to some documents and not all documents.


Let us know if there is any where to work around this issue and allow users to upload and download documents or how to tackle the antivirus issue.


It looks like the SharePoint antivirus has flagged off some of the so-called infected documents with some non-zero values, the resolution to this as suggested by microsoft is to re-run the anti-virus, so that the document value can be set to zero again and have the file downloaded.

Your help will be highly appreciated in this regards.







trouble associating template in document library?


I am having trouble associating a template with a document library.  When I enter the URL for the template under the Advanced Settings for the library, I get an "Invalid URL" error message. I've compared my URL to other templates on other sites and I think I'm doing it correctly.  The name of my document library is "Link Checks".  I put my template, BrokenLinksTemplate.doc in Links Check/Forms  so that my URL is formed: "/Link Checks/Forms/BrokenLinksTemplate.doc".

Can anyone advise me what I might be doing wrong?

Uploading a Document using Webservices in sharepoint 2010 won't checkin




I'm developping an application with vs2010 for Sharepoint 2010 that uploads documents via the webservice Copy.asmx, everything works fine except that even if i fill the required meta-datas the document in the library in sharepoint GUI appears as checked-out...

        copyService.Url = webUrl + "/_vti_bin/copy.asmx"

        Dim destinationUrl As String() = {"http://mywebdev/Docs/using.pdf"}
        Dim cResult1 As SPCopy.CopyResult = New SPCopy.CopyResult

Document Library Synchronisation with Outlook 2007 - Subfolder Synchronisation Fails


Hi there!

We have a document library of about 2 GB (approx. 3000 files) with nested subfolders (migrated to MOSS 2007 from a fileserver). Generally we have no problem to take all files offline (after selecting "Mark to download" in Outlook 2007). Also new files are taken offline without any problems automatically.

But when we create a new subfolder within the document library those new subfolders and files are not synced to Outlook. The users then have to manually right-click on the document library in Outlook and select "Mark to download" again. After a click on "Send/Receive" all the new folders and files are synced.

Is there a way to make sure, that also new subfolders are synced automatically?

Thanks in advance!
