Use Sharepoint Calendar Start Time field in calculated column

I'm trying to limit the calendar view to current week using the Sharepoint defined field Start Time. However, when I display the serial number behind the Start Time it looks like it is actually giving me the serial number for the Created Date field. I believe it is because the appointment is reoccurring but I'm hoping there is a way around it. I created a new testdate field and manually entered the date and set those appointments as all day events however they are not reocurring appointments. The testdate returns the correct serial number however the start time returns an incorrect serial number. SerialNumber1=DATE(YEAR([Start Time]),MONTH([Start Time]),DAY([Start Time])) SerialNumber2=DATE(YEAR([testdate]),MONTH([testdate]),DAY([testdate])) Start Time  SerialNumber1 Testdate  SerialNumber2 8/31/2010 40420 8/31/2010 40421 8/31/2010* 40405    9/1/2010* 40405    9/2/2010* 40405    9/7/2010 40427 9/7/2010 40428 9/13/2010* 40405    9/14/2010 40434 9/14/2010 40435 9/14/2010* 40405    9/15/2010* 40405    *These are reoccurring appointments scheduled as all day events. The others were entered as one time appointments scheduled as all day events.

How do I get column values in Sharepoint designer so I can use them as a variable in code block?

The code below is in my EditForm.aspx and it works but instead of it outputting "This is just a test!" I need get a number that is stored in a column named Phone Number that has 5555555555 stored in it and have the line that says TD2.innerHTML = "This is just a test!"; ouput what ever number is stored in the Phone Number column. Here is the code that is in my EditForm.aspx <script type="text/javascript">function DisplayItemID(){       var TD1 = document.createElement("TD");       TD1.className = "ms-formlabel";       TD1.innerHTML = "<h3 class='ms-standardheader'>Test</h3>";       var TD2 = document.createElement("TD");       TD2.className = "ms-formbody";       TD2.innerHTML = "This is just a test!";       var IdRow = document.createElement("TR");       IdRow.appendChild(TD1);       IdRow.appendChild(TD2);       var ItemBody = GetSelectedElement(document.getElementById("idAttachmentsRow"),"TABLE").getElementsByTagName("TBODY")[0]; 

Summing a calculated column with comma's in sharepoint designer



Sharepoint designer has the trait of getting goofed up with calculated columns that display with a comma.  I typically deal with this by doing a format-number(number(translate(@MyCalculatedColumn,',','')), ###$%%^formatstuff).  this replaces the comma's with nuthing so it will format as a number.

I'm trying to do a sum now...is this possible?


  <xsl:variable name="Rows" select="/dsQueryResponse/Rows/Row[contains(@FileRef,$TheIDweWant)]"/>
  <xsl:variable name="zNumMales" select="sum($Rows/@MaleLives)"/>
  <xsl:variable name="zTotalMaleVolume" select="sum($Rows/[number(translate(@MaleVolume,',',''))])"/>

The zNumMales works fine...it's just a number column populated by a workflow.

The zTotalMaleVolume is calculated, has commas so it displays as blank, we need to get rid of the comma's.  the above syntax is upchucked...anyone happen to know what it is?



Sharepoint Calculated column with [Today]



I am using Sharepoint 2007 Enterprise edition.

I have two columns called Start Date and End Date (both of datetime type). These columns are used to maintain start date and end date of a contractor in a company. I have a calculated column (called Status) which displays "Active" or "InActive" depending on the below mentioned conditions.

I used this formula :

=IF(OR(OR(AND((Today>[Start Date]),[End Date]=0),AND((Today=[Start Date]),[End Date]=0)),OR(OR(AND((Today<[End Date]),(Today=[Start Date])),AND((Today<[End Date]),(Today>[Start Date]))),AND((Today=[Start Date]),(Today=[End Date])))),"Active","InActive")

This is working but not updating the value correctly. I think Today value is not getting updated dynamically.

I have 5 conditionds:

1. Start Date < Today (Where End Date =0)

or Start Date = Today where (End Date =0)

or Start Date < Today < End Date

or Start Date < Today and Today = End Date

or Start Date < Today and  End Date > Today

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

VB.NET Linq - Multiple column Group By using Anonymous types does not work properly


I am attemping to do a multiple column group by in linq using VB.  I've followed a code sample i obtained at the following url:


the sample code is:

GroupBy - Multiple Columns

This sample uses Group By to group products by CategoryID and SupplierID.

Public Sub LinqToSqlGroupBy09()
    Dim categories = From p In db.Products _
                     Group By Key = New With {p.CategoryID, p.SupplierID} Into Group _
                     Select Key, Group

    ObjectDumper.Write(categories, 1)
End Sub

My code result though is not correct, as i am getting duplicates.   The first query is using the data which is stored in a datatable.  The second table pulls the data from a list of objects which i manually built in an effort to get closer to the Example provided above.

Dim listNamesWithSeverity = From myrow As DataRow In dt.Rows _

SharePoint Calculated Column Formula or Using JavaScript/jQuery



I have one issue in creating a calculated column formula:

The idea is:

|	Column1			|	Column2			|	Column3			|
|	Name1			|	(empty)			|	Name1			|
|	(empty)			|	Name2			|	Name2 			|
|	Name3			|	(empty)			|	Name3			|

For example we have 2 columns (Column 1 and Column 2) that may have or may not have a value but at least one of them will have a value.

Column 3 is the calculated column that will check if Column 1 has value and Column 2 is empty(by default Column 2 will be empty because Column 1 has value :)) then the value in Column 3 will be the same value as Column 1. Otheriwse if Column 1 is empty and Column 2 has a value, the Column's 3 value will be the value from Column 2.

Can this be achieved with JavaScript or jQuery ? to fill the column's 3 value based on the other two columns if have or not value?


SPD workflow logic or calculated column... Very long condition - possible need for contains and begi


We have a lookup column on a SharePoint list with some 500 entries.  There is going to be a business rule where we want to include a URL link in a workflow email alert if one of 30 entries is selected from that lookup column. the rule might allow for if begins with XYZ or if Contains XYZ, or maybe not. But only if the the entry qualifies.

We need to send the email alert regardless, but if one of the 30 is selected, we need to send the user some extra fixed text and a url link that will have the list row id in a the uRL query string.  For example.

This record requires more information, please click here:

where here is an html a href pointing to  http://somewebform?ID=<id of my row>

So we also do need to format some html into the alert as well.  Recipients will be reading alert emails in Outlook 2007 with HTML turned on. The link will be to a form outside sharePoint and the sharepoint row must have been added before user can visit that form.

 Is there a Contains or Begins with type funciton in the Calculated column.

Is there way to condition blocks of text in a SPD worflow with a condition

Multiple Column Dropdownlist for the ASP.NET DataGrid

Based on my previous control "Multiple Column DropDownList for ASP.NET", I received many emails asking for the same control to be used in the DataGrid for web applications. Here we go.. This control can be used as the regular MS DropDownList in the DataGrid and also as a regular dropdownlist. It has all the properties, like DataTextField, DataValueField, DataSource, SelectedIndex etc. The download file contains the samples both in VB.NET and C#. In this sample, I have used the Northwind database of SQL Server.

C++ at Work: Managed Code in Visual Studio 2005


Many of you are no doubt in the process of upgrading to Visual Studio® 2005, so I thought now would be a good time to relate some of my own experiences with the new compiler. What took me so long? Hey, I'm a retro kind of guy! Better late than never!.

Is your code running in a SharePoint Sandbox?


You could execute a function call that is not allowed in the sandbox (for example call a static method on SPSecurity) and catch the exception. A better approach is to test the friendly name of you app domain:

AppDomain.CurrentDomain.FriendlyName returns "Sandboxed Code Execution Partially Trusted Asp.net AppDomain"

Because you can never be sure that this string changes in the future, a safer approach will be:


See http://www.sharepointoverflow.com/questions/2051/how-to-check-if-code-is-running-as-sandboxed-solution for a discussion on this topic.

Duplicate column names from forms in SharePoint lists



I'm in the process of migrating from a WSS 2 site to WSS 3/MOSS. On the old site I used an Infopath 2003 form for absence requests. During the migration I now use Infopath 2007. There wasn't any problem initially when the form was stored with the SharePoint form library. However, when I published the form as a content type from Infopath 2007 and then added that content type to the form library, there are two columns for each piece of data from the form. (One from the content type and one from the form list.) I relinked each old form (list content type) to the new AbsenceRequest content type and removed the original one from the list. However, the duplicate column names are still there. Since they came from the Infopath form, they are not editable or deletable from the SharePoint list management interface. The duplicate column names make it tough to build views since it isn't apparent which column to use in the form building UI. It can be determined form the overview display, but it is very cumbersome.


Does anyone know a way to get rid of the old, absolute, columns?

Configure BDC column to have multiple values selected


How do I Configure BDC column to have multiple values selected and make multiple entities data available in the same column.  Currently it supports only single value for an item.  This requirement is crucial need some solution immediately.

BDC Column with Ability to Select Multiple Values


Use Case:

We are creating a storage location for technical product articles. These will be SharePoint publishing pages. Each page will have metadata assigned to it to make it searchable by properties. The possible values for one of the columns (Part Number) could potentially be sourced by our ERP system. I'd like to do this to eliminate the possibility of free-text entry errors, but there are probably over 10,000 parts so a drop-down list isn't feasible.


Ideal Situation:

The end user enters the part number and clicks a button to verify it against a BDC entry from our ERP system. If they weren't sure on the part number they needed, they could do a lookup from that metadata entry screen. They'd need to have the option to add multiple part numbers as one technical product article could reference multiple part numbers.



Is BDC an option for all of this or am I looking at a custom metadata solution? I thought I heard along the way that BDC only supported one value choice, but I couldn't find a verification for that in the forums.
