Complete folders missing from Document Library, but available through search (WSS 2.0)

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#
 

Dear all,

We have a WSS 2.0 Server (in Farm mode with SQL backend). About 6 months ago, a user moved a lot of folders around within a Document Library (doing a bit of a cleanup).

Since then, most folders in the library cannot be seen, either through web browser or Explorer view. They simply don't appear (as though they've been deleted).
However, if we search for a file it will appear in search, and the URL/path to the file is in the folders that cannot be seen (or seemingly don't exist). You can then view the file as normal if you click the link from the search results.

If we remove the file name from the URL we can then browse the folder that it resides in, however once we get up to the top level folder in the D/L, we get a 404.

Eg: Browsing we see:

Shared Documents/Folder one
Shared Documents/Folder two

If we search we see links to:

Shared Documents/Folder five/Quotes/Australia/quote1.doc (we can then view & download this file fine).

We can then enter the URL to "Shared Documents/Folder five/Quotes/Australia/" in browser and view all files in the Australia folder. If we click 'Up' we can even view the contents of the 'Quotes' folder, but then we hit 'Up' again to get to Folder Five, we get a 404!

This is the most bizarre of all WSS problems I've seen, a

Unable to perform fulltext search for documents in some folders in an SharePoint Document Library

  

Issue Description : Keywords from certain folders in the Document Library  is not searchable via full text search. For example, the keyword “4MB7106” is not searchable, even though the document is available in the document library. This is content search in a file in a document library, NOT a file name. Any ideas?

Search does not find text in Word document stored in document library on a Report Center site within

  

Hello,

We have a document library on a site created off of the Report Center site template. We uploaded a Word 2007 document with the word zebra in the text. Using the search bar at the top of the page we selected This list: Our document library and searched for zebra. We received no results.

We tested the same thing on another site (site template Team site) within the same site collection and search worked fine.

Does the Report Center search function differently then the search functionality on the Team site?

How can I get search to work for a Custom Document Library with a few third-party field types?

  
Hi, Using WSS 3.0 with SQL Server 2008 for Workgroups I have created a Custom Document Library (2,462 files - copied from folder into Explorer view and then renamed using Batch Update in web services i.e. "BaseName" field) - basically it uses three fields that are of "Filtered Lookup" (a field type from a third party). The document library is included in the search (i.e. Advanced Settings), but it displays none of the files - bascially not included in search at all with all testing I have done. I created a new Document Library called "Test" and uploaded a document and it is included in the search. Is there any way I can debug this. Is there a log file? Is there something in the Search Database that might help? Your help would be really appreciated as this is my last issue - and its soooo important to the deliverable. Thanks. John.

Listing documents in Folders and subfolders in a Dataview of Document Library

  
My dataview is pointed to a Document Library. I noitced files in folders and subfolders don't list - only the folders themselves.  Is there any way to list files in a particular folder or all files in all folders? What I'm trying to do is tie a folder to entries in a custom list. I'd like a folder for every ID in that custom list. When I open the Dispform for the ID, I'd like a dataview or some other webpart to dynamically to show related files (all which would ofcourse just be in their respective folder). I'm thinking it's just a matter of passing the ID querystring to a condition in the Dataview or Webpart. It would also have to be a folder as I need to allow same file names to be uploaded.   Thanks.  

Workflow data missing from Document Library

  
Hi, We have this strange situation where the workflow status is missing from document library views. Here is the situation: I have a Document Library with 3 OOTB approval workflows configured to start manually. Process is that user uploads a doc, start the first workflow, once it gets completed starts the second, and so forth. Now if I check the All Documents view of this Document Library, I can see these three workflows have 3 columns and that shows the status of the workflow - say "In progress", "Completed" etc. Now our users who use this document library and workflow complains that they cannot see these status of the workflow after some days. If a workflow is completed and status shows completed there, but after some days that column is blank. I've checked the modified data for the documents and this issue according to the user happens to documents that was uploaded 2 weeks back too, which means this doesn't happen to old document only. This document library has Major and Minor versioning enabled. Why does this happen, does SharePoint remove data for completed workflows? I checked the document's workflow page and its empty; nothing under running workflows and nothing under completed workflows. In Doc Library settings - Workflow settings I could not find an option View Workflow reports. That page has the following details: Use this page to view or

filter search results to specific document library

  

Hi all.  I have a sharepoint 2007 subsite, which is a small part of a large corporate sharepoint 2007 system.  I only have admin rights on my chunk.

I would like to limit a search to a specific document library within my subsite, and further would like the search results to return additional non-standard meta-data from this library.

Is this something that I can do without creating a new search scope? 


Document Library Missing Columns in Edit Properties

  
Hi, I'm having an issue with a specific Site Collection.  The issue is that some of the columns do not show up when you go to the Edit Properites page, or when the user creates a new document.  The items can be edited when opened in a data sheet, but the users would like to be able to edit them on the Edit Properties page.  They say they haven't made any changes, but this has happened at least 3 times with differenct document libraries on this specific site.  Has anyone else ever dealt with this?  Anyone got a solution?  Let me know if more info is needed.  Thanks.

Custom search to document library to find specific document

  

Hi

I have a document library with having multiple folders approx 100 (001 to 100) , each folder is having multiple document ,Every folder in that document library contains 50000 documents , Document library has some fileds like Fname, Lname,Document Type [Look up field] having value(Genral,Average,Advance) . now the problem is to search these documents with using custom search as per requirement

the user wants a webpart where it has 2 textbox [FName and LName] and a dropdown [Document type] and a button , using this the user can enter the first name , last name and selecting document type from the dropdown and finally clicking the search button filters the document library. 

my problem is with that how the value of this search criteria can be passed to the Document library.How these webpart can be connected with custom search or do we have any other way to search.

 

Thanks
