I am relatively new to sharepoint, and since I do not yet have a proper development environment in my current contract, I have had to attempt to produce solutions to various line of business problems using Nintex and Infopath alone. They are working
on getting one created for me but i still can't believe microsoft make you purchase a whole other sharepoint server licence unless you think developing directly on the live server is a good idea, but I digress, thats not the issue I need assistance with.
The current issue I am trying to find a solution for, or atleast the right way to approach, is the creation of a simple form where the user can check off a register of daily tasks completed and submit the form back to sharepoint from a tablet PC. Each
submission is to create a new entry in the DailyRegister list with a handful of other fields like who, where, when, etc.
That is the easy part that I was able to produce with relative ease, but where it gets tricky is they want the list of tasks to be dynamic.
i.e. A separate sharepoint list that will just hold the list of currently relevant tasks to be included in the form for that day. Effectively using a 3rd list as the relational reference table between the DailyRegister list and the AvailableTasks list.
I am planning to create the AvailableTasks list to look something like:
I have the standard .net login control that is working. (Still learning .net after 15yrs of classic)
Thanks ahead of time

We have a manual process that we do on a SharePoint list to export data from SharePoint to a spreadsheet that can then be used by non SharePoint programs. I'd like to be able to automate this process so that it can be scheduled as a Task to run on
a daily basis. Not sure if a workflow can do what I'd like it to. I have SharePoint Designer 2007 as well.
Here are the steps:
1. Load a particular View of a SharePoint List
2. From the view's Action menu, "Open with Access"
3. Save the resulting Access database as a file to a specific Folder on the computer hosting SharePoint
This would be run as a Task on the computer hosting SharePoint.
