I have a pdf file that I'd like to open and edit. The pdf file just opens, and doesn't ask if it should be opened as a read only or edit option. My colleague is able to select edit mode as a drill down, but I can't figure out how to add this
functionality into my document library... does anyone have a solution?
I believe this issue got by so many people already.
We have a sharepoint site running on HTTPS protocol. There are some scenarios we get multiple documents from customers and need to move them to SharePoint to share them across organization. For this, what we are doing is, we are opening the library and from
Actions menu -> Open in Windows Explorer.
The windows explorer is opening fine and when we tried to move the files from local system to windows explorer of the SharePoint site, it is failing to copy data and showing 0KB moved. And at the windows taskbar it is giving notification like "Got network
delayed write fail message." when we are doing this on XP. On any other OS, there is no notification and not moving the file.
We are not able to understand the problem. Why it is not able to move, everytime it is copying 0KB.
We can do using upload multiple files feature, but we have to go back and forth between folders and it will slow down the process.
Please help me out, why it is happening... It is not network issue at all for sure.
The Connect to Outlook feature in SharePoint Server 2007 uses a .pst file to store content that is visible in Outlook. This has caused issues in the past with a client's enterprise policy of preventing use of .pst files on desktops. This particular client
has an application that periodically checks for .pst files and deletes them, which breaks the Connect to Outlook feature for them.
Does SharePoint 2010 use the same functionality to Connect to Outlook, or something different?
I need some info on a drag and drop upload box where the user can drag the file to a box and it will start the upload process. I was thinking maybe a webpart and have seen people talk about silverlight? What do you guys think? Where could I start with this?
And how would you do it?
I have been using a SharePoint site task list (believe it is WSS 3.0) and connecting it with Outlook 2007 with no issues. We have recently upgraded to Windows 7 and Outlook 2010 and when I connect any of my task lists (have tried several sites) they
are now in read-only mode. Are there any issues with Outlook 2010 and using task lists from WSS 3.0?

Hello SharePoint Gurus,
I have been assigned this new task where I am required to integrate Microsoft Outlook with custom SharePoint site. Unlike a calendar or tasks list, I need to integrate contact information in the outlook contact directory. According to this
post there is no provision to achieve this. But in case somebody out there guide me on this and let me know a possibility which can facilitate me in this regard.
Looking forward to hear from you guys.

Web Forms have the potential to change Web programming by introducing a new programming model built around server-side controls-a model in which controls render their own UIs by generating HTML to return to clients and firing events that are handled by server-side scripts. Since all the action takes place on the Web server, virtually any browser can run a Web Forms app. And thanks to Visual Studio .NET, building a Web Forms app is a lot like using Visual Basic: just drop a control onto a form then write an event handler. This article describes the Web Forms programming model, how it fits with ASP.NET, and introduces DataGrid, TextBox, and other classes in the .NET Framework class library.

Building on the browser-based org chart featuring VML (Vector Markup Language) described previously in Microsoft Internet Developer, this article takes you through the process of refining that sample app by using XML, XSL, and JScript code to create a new, improved version. Drag and drop editing is added to the org chart interface thanks to built-in support found in Internet Explorer 5.0. XML and JScript allow data manipulated on the screen to be saved back to the server in its native format. The final product of this combination of XML, XSL, and VML is a high performance, scalable Internet app that uses processing on the client to reduce stress for the server.

I'm using Outlook 2010 on Windows 7 64bit.
My company uses a hosted Sharepoint server (I guess it's Sharepoint 2010). There's a team calendar, which I would like to connect to my Outlook 2010. Linking it to Outlook works fine until it tries to update the calendar with the Sharepoint server. I shows
the following error:
Error (0x80070005) when running the task "SharePoint": "You are not authorized to view the SharePoint list (team calendar). Contact the administrator of SharePoint site. HTTP 401."
So this tells me, I'm not authorized to connect - which is quite clear because Outlook never asked my for any username or password.
Funny thing is when I try to add an internet calendar (Right mouse click on calendars, Add calendar, Internet calendar) and use the url of the sharepoint list, it asks me for username and password, but then fails to add the calendar, as it isn't a webcal
(which is OK).
BUT: As Outlook at this moment has the username and password, the exisiting Sharepoint calendar synchronizes correctly. This works until Outlook is being restarted.
Does anyone have an idea why I'm not asked for any authentication? Maybe there's some setting I haven't found yet? It works with trying to add the webcal any time when I start Outlook, but t
