Add Excel under 'New Document' tab in Shared Documents library

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


What's the best, least time-consuming way to add (basic, out-of-box) Excel in the 'New Document' dropdown menu in the "Shared Documents" library? This is Sharepoint 2010. I tried to add it from library settings->content types->add from existing site content types, but it's not in the 'available site content types' window. Thanks in advance for your time and help!


Best, Lily

Document viewer on a documents Library & Tooltip Bubble on rollover

Hi everybody,
1 - I would like to know, if in Sharepoint 2007 ECM part (Documents Library), there's a downloadable webpart or an application to create a document viewer (pdf, doc, xls, msg...) in an iframe when you point the mousse over a document or something like that...
If it doesn't exist do you have in mind a code sample which can make something like that ? thank you.

2 - It's possible in a documents library to activate balloon tooltips which show us metas of the document (on mousse over), like an option or an application...

Thank you very much.
All the best.
Go I.T.

Document Library "export to spreadsheet" doesn't export all columns in Excel 2003

Hi, we are working with MOSS 2007, Infopath Forms Services, KPIs and Excel 2003. There is a view for some data of the Infopath forms which has to be exported to Excel by our users, but some columns are not exported - without any error message. If I try to export it to Excel 2007 everything is exported as expected, but our users have to use Excel 2003. Any idea?

Sharepoint 2007 - 80GB Documents in 1 document library

Hi, My customer wants 'customer docs' in SharePoint. It is now stored on several disks and wants to move it to SharePoint 2007(!). It needs to go into a folder structure.....I'm now investigating the information that needs to move to SharePoint and it turns out a quick scan resulted in 210.000 documents with a total volume of 80GB. Off course this is raw data and thus containing archives, zips, access databases and a lost movie and the like (just like any normal network drive :-)). When I look at the limits and best practices: no folder should contain more then 2.000 items (OK) no doc lib should contain more then 2.000.000 items (more then OK) no file should be larger then 2GB (OK - we set it to a max of 150MB) It is all fine but my concern is the shear size of the total load. Let's say they don't migrate 80GB but 30-50GB. My Question: can a single MOSS 2007 document library hold this kind of documents and total size? What does this mean for overall performance, backup, search indexing, crawling etc etc?  Thnx for any tips!

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.

Office 2007 Documents Open in Read-Only when Opening them from a WSS 2.0 Document Library

Hi, When any of our Windows 7 Pro computers that run Office 2007 Pro attempt to open a Word document that resides in a WSS 2.0 document library by using the drop down menu and selecting "Edit with MS Word", the documents open in read-only.  Our work-around is to save the document locally, modify it, and then save it back to the document library. We have some Windows XP and Vista systems that run Office 2007 and they are fine and can simply edit the document and save it.  We also have a handful of pc's that run Office 2003 and they are not having any issues either. Things I've tried: Office 2007 Repair - no luck Office Reinstall - no luck Some registry mod HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\12\Internet\OpenDocumentReadWrite=1 (noted on a MSKB article) - no luck and after re-reading the article it clearly states that this will not address content hosted on WSS or SPS sites Clearing IE temp files, resttting IE to defaults - no luck Once again, this only seems to happen to Win7Pro pc's that run Office 2007.  Honestly, I can't tell if IE8 has anything to do with this. Any thoughts or help would be extrememly appreciated. Thanks, Mike
