MOSS 2007 This list or library contains a large number of items.

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

I have a library showing "This list or library contains a large number of items.".

The library contains only 1300 items.


1. Would the performance, e.g., upload files/change item properties, be affected?

2. Any way I can better organize the items?

3. I kown we can create folders in a library, how can I create subfolder? Or subfolder refers to Content Type?

4. Would create content type improves performance?


Many thanks.

Thanks all Vit

MOSS 2007 - Excessive items in a List Lookup


Hello Community,

I have a list that uses a lookup.  The lookup list has over 7,000 items and is throwing an error -

Unable to open pdf from document library MOSS 2007


When I click on a pdf document uploaded in a document library it comes up with a blank page. 

I guess it's trying to open pdf on the browser. I turned off "Display PDF in browser " option in Adobe Preferences, but it doesn't help, same issue.

I tried other browsers too, it's the same issue.

I am able to open all other pdf files local to my machine fine.

I am using IE 8 on my machine (Windows 7) and the Sharepoint server is MOSS 2007.

Issue With MOSS 2007 Picture library



We have a MOSS 2007 publishing portal. We are currently facing issues with Picture library created with default picture library template.Whenever we have tried to upload an image to the picture library I am getting "acess denied" error message, though I have full permission to the site level as well as to the library level.I have seen the pictures are getting uploaded and in "checked out" state.It does not show the "edit properties" page on upload and does not even allow the owner of the image to edit the properties, gives the same access denied error message.

I have also tried to check in the image files through the "management and content structure", but the images are not getting checked in. Please let me know the root cause of this and how we can resolve this.





Exporting MOSS 2007 List to Excel 2007

When doing the export, the columns "Item Type" and "Path" are automatically displayed in the sheet.  Is there anyway to suppress these fields from exporting automatically?  I'm sure this has already been asked before, but I couldn't find anything after much searching (perhaps I'm using the wrong keywords).  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

How to get a list of installed MOSS 2007 updates?

We have several problems with our MOSS 2007 installation and operation and since we found out that two identical sharepoint servers (production and test) that had same updates applied have different Search_DB databases (they have same name function with different number of parameters, for ex.) we have a single idea of what can be the cause: Somehow, windows update or other quirk, an update or hotfix got applied to one of the servers.  Strange thing is, noone of our employees seems to know, neither google seems to know, how do we exactly get a list of installed updates on the MOSS 2007 installation.   So, simple question: HOW? How do we get a complete list of changes (hotfixes, servicepacks, patches) done to an installation of MOSS?

How do I get the Sharepoint 2007 KPI to use the "Calculation using all list items in the view"

I have a custom SP list that contains a numeric column in the list and the view selected for the KPI. The option to calculate using all items in the view is grayed out.  Sometimes SP will let me create a KPI like this, then I go back to the webpart and the indicator has reverted back to just a simple count of the number of items in the list.  I want to use the "calculate all items" from a numeric column and have my KPI stay that way? Any thoughts?

Consume MOSS 2007 list to 2010

Hi all, My end goal is to display a list in SharePoint2010 .... but the list actually originates from SharePoint2007. I thought it could be as easy as creating BCS to the SP2007 list web service (/_vti_bin/Lists.asmx) but BCS has issues with the complex data types and based on other threads this isn't possible.  We've been able to create a data source to the web service and display the list contents on a custom aspx page, but this isn't exactly our end goal. Is there a best practice for this type of thing?  Or do we have to go down the path of creating a custom web part while consuming the web service directly or the SOAP data source we've created?+ Note: Migration is not an option at this point... integration is our current path. Any help is appreciated. Thanks, Eric

Maximum number of items in a SharePoint 2010 list

Hi, Is there a recommended maximum number of items that can go into a SharePoint 2010 list? I seem to recall that earlier versions seemed to have performance problems with more than 2000 items. I have a table that has some 50,000 records and would love to convert it into a list.   Thanks John JohnSpilker

Infopath 2007: Cant we fetch data from a list or form library without using a Query to the data conn

I am trying to fetch data from a form library and a list (both secondary data sources). But cant do it without using a rule (Query using a data connection). However when I use the 'Refresh' control on the form it brings the value. I find it quite weird, as the connections are made properly and logically speaking all the data connetions should fetch dynamic data once the form opens or loads. Cant we do it without using a (data query) rule? Update: I am using a web based infopath forms, while using the same form on client its working fine. Why is that?
