Web Folder problem : This file cannot be saved to this location because there is no connection to th

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 30, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
When I check out a Word 2007 document from a list, I cannot save it back to the server.  I get:   This file cannot be saved to this location because there is no connection to the server.  Check your network connection and try again.   I am using a Virtual Machine (Virtual PC).  I have the Microsoft Loopback adapter installed.    The server has a static IP address and is a domain controller. I am able to access the web folder through Windows Explorer.   How do I set up Office, Sharepoint and Webdav so that I can check files out of sharepoint and save them back, on a virtual machine?

Installation Problem: 'Server Type Tab Not showing. Only File location shown

You cannot vote on your own post I am installing Sharepoint 2010 on WIndows server 2008 R2 64 bit machine. After entering 'product key' screen, it suppose to show Screen where 'server type' and 'File Location' tabs where we select 'Standalone/Server farm' then 'Complete/standalone'.

I have run the same setup on WIndows 7 OS and it does show up the screen having  options for 'Stand Alone/Server Farm'.

BUT on Windows 2008 R2, it does not. After entering product key next screen shows up having only  'File location' tab screen which also does not have 'Server Type" Tab.  This is killing me to proceed as I have to work with Power Pivot in Sharepoint integrated mode where its compulsary to select 'Server Farm' AND 'Complete' Options.

I as well ran prerequisteinstaller before running setup.exe. Prerequisiteinstaller completed succesfully. But setup.exe  has this weared problem. For workaround I tried from command prompt as well giving Cmd> Setup.exe /Config C:\SharePointsetup\Files\SetupFarm\config.xml.   BUT no change. Same issue screen does not showup with that options.

While Importing Excel 2007 file to Datatable - headerrow problem


Hi there,


I am trying to simply extract an excel data from an uploaded file an put it into a datatable. In this case the excel file has 3 rows but when I fill the datatable I only see row count of 2.

I tried changing HDR:NO; to HDR:YES and vice versa, but no luck. 

What am I doing wrong? (Note: the excel file cannot have a  headerrow)


string connstr = "Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source=" + pFilePath + ";Extended Properties=\"Excel 12.0;IMEX=1;HDR:NO;\"";
            OleDbConnection conn = new OleDbConnection(connstr);
            DataTable dtTables = conn.GetOleDbSchemaTable(System.Data.OleDb.OleDbSchemaGuid.Tables, null);
            string strTablename = dtTables.Rows[0]["TABLE_NAME"].ToString();
            string strSQL = "SELECT * FROM [" + strTablename + "]";

            OleDbCommand cmd = new OleDbCommand(strSQL, conn);

            DataTable dt = new DataTable();
            OleDbDataAdapter da = new OleDbDataAdapter(cmd);
            //At this point row count=2 which doesn't make sense




Problem in accessing resource file dynamically.


Steps I have followed are
1.I have created myres.en-GB.resx file at C:.
2.then created locale specific myres.en-GB.resources using resgen at c: only,
resgen c:\myres.en-GB.resx
3.Linked the Resource File to Assembly using AL.exe which is giving me assembly at c: only.
Al /t:lib /embed:myres.en-GB.resources /out:ClassLibrary1.dll
4.I have created one web application using vs 2008 & then build it.
5.Then placed both resource file & dll in web applications Bin\en-GB folder.
6.Anf finally written code at page load like

            Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = info;
            Assembly asd = Assembly.Load("ClassLibrary1");
            ResourceManager res = new ResourceManager("myres.en-GB", asd.GetSatelliteAssembly(info));
            string sdf = res.GetString("Lab1");

but after running application I m getting following error

File Download Problem


Hi everyone,

I am using a download handler to handle the downloading of files from my website.  I am using a slightly modified code from the Microsoft article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/812406

Everything is working fine and downloading, even with large files, but it does not show the file size for any of the files to download. Even if theyre really small.

Here is my code for the handler

public class DownloadHandler : IHttpHandler

        public void ProcessRequest(HttpContext context)
            string path = "";
                path = context.Server.UrlDecode(context.Request.QueryString["src"]).DecryptString();
            catch(Exception ex)
            System.IO.Stream iStream = null;

            byte[] buffer = new Byte[10000];

            int length;

            long dataToRead;

            string filename = System.IO.Path.GetFileName(path);

                iStream = new System.IO.FileStream(context.Server.MapPath("~/" + path), System.IO.FileMode.Open,
                            System.IO.FileAccess.Read, System.IO.FileShare.Read);


Problem download file from SQL Server


Hello everyone. I am having an issue downloading files that I have store in SQL Server. I have no problem in a WinForm. What am I doing wrong in my code?

        Dim sch As New clsReport
        Dim fileData As New clsReport.Letter
        fileData = sch.DownloadLetter(Session("LetterID"))

        Dim fil As Byte() = ms.ToArray
        Dim nam As String = fileData.name
        Dim ext As String = fileData.ext
        If Not fil Is Nothing Then

                Response.AppendHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=" + nam & "." & ext)
                ' Response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", nam & "." & ext)
                Response.AddHeader("Content-Length", fil.Length.ToString)

Multiple Submit Connection Problem


Hello everyone,

I have an InfoPath form with two Submit Connections. One of them is a regular submit connection to a SharePoint Document Library. The other is a submit connection to the UpdateListItems web Service.

I have one button using rules that submits the forms fields to the Document Library. Some of those fields have data validation rules like entry must be four digits, and field cannot be blank.

The other submit button uses rules to submit an XML template to the UpdateListItems Template. My problem is that even though this second button does not have the first submit connection as an action, the form will still check all of the forms fields to see if they violate the validation rules before it will submit to the Web Service.

How do I tell InfoPath to ignore the validation rules when I only want to submit to the Web Service? I want the user to be able to enter data into the XML template fields and submit to the Web Service, even if some of the rest of the fields are blank. Right now if any of the other fields fail validation it prevents submittal to the web service even if the fields that failed validation are not being submitted to the web service.

Thanks for any advice that can be offered,
Bill Hurt

Programmatically delete a .webpart file from wpcatalogs folder from an IIS website


We are using a third party wsp in our solution which directly adds the web parts into the web application store rather than the web part gallery(References to them are present in IIS site's wpcatalog directory). We want to remove these web part files so that the users will not be able to add these web parts to pages directly. Or any other modification so that users will not be able to add these directly. Is there a way we can do this programmatically?

reading excel file problem



i have 200 rows in my excel file. im using OleDbConnection to read the excel file.

The problem is that it will read all the blank rows from row 200 onwards. Is there a configuration im missing ? or is there a way to import all rows that has data? Here's some of my code.

string excelConnectionString =
               "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" +
                "Data Source=" + filePath + ";" +
                "Extended Properties=Excel 8.0";

OleDbConnection excelConnection =
                    new OleDbConnection("Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" + filePath + ";Extended Properties='Excel 8.0;HDR=NO'");

OleDbCommand cmd = new OleDbCommand("Select * from [list$]",excelConnection);

Generating MS Word doc from mht file gives smart quote problem


I have a word document to be generated using ASP.Net/VB.net.

So I have a word document template saved as .mht file on the web server.

In my ASP.Net code,I read this mht file content and replace certain string line Description$$ with the actual description from the database.Then save this content as .doc file.

This works fine but shows a box symbol when I have smart quotes " (not this one as I cannot type it here.The double quote which you see in MS Word,the slanted double quote).

I dont know how to make my word doc generated, show the exact double quote as in MS word.

If any of you have any idea of this please reply.

Thank you

Problem when using Activator.CreateObject and reading App.Config file

Hello, this is the scenario. I have an application that load at runtime severals dll. these dll are actually "adapters" that wraps calls to web services, database and so on. The app.config of the "main" application stores in config sections all information necessary to each adapter (i.e.Web ServiceURL..) and I have created inside each adapter a class to ready those values the loading at run time the DLL has been implemented by storing all necessary types into a dictionary of generics and when I need to instanciate it I call the Activate.CreateObject and I pass the specific type (I means the name of the Adapter class) The problem is that the adapter class itself is not able to get the config value because ConfigSection has not been initialized. If I write: IInterfaceAdap adapt = new myAdapter() -> I read the config data IInterfaceAdap adapt = (IInterfaceAdap)Activator.CreateObject (type) -> now way to read the data stored in the App.Config. I think that I undertood the problem but I'm not able to find a workaround to read data store in the app.config!! I need help please!!  

Excel Connection Manager Problem

I am building a package that has 2 tasks that need to use the same excel connection manager. I use a execute sql task to dynamically build a table from the headers of the excel sheet  ,then I use an excel source component to load the data from the sheet. However when I try to edit the excel source and switch the data access mode to a variable and select the variable(for the path), when I try to close the editor I get this message 'S:\myfolder'.  It is already opened exclusively by another user, or you need permission to view its data. I need this package to access the same folder each time because the files will be placed in that folder. This package also has a branch for loading a text file into sql server. It access the same folder but uses a flatfile connection manager It looks like permissions on the folder are correct

Context Connection problem in SQLCLR

I am using context connection in the sqlclr (and there are reasons to do so). While a datareader is under execution that uses the context connection, I need another database read passing one of values being read from the datareader. Since I cann't use the context connection for this second read (as context connection is already in use), how can I create a second connection to be used with this second read. I cannot create the hardcoded connections string for the second connection as the database is dynamically selected. The database is same as used by the context connection. I can use the server=localhost though, but cannot hardcode the database name as the database can be different in different sqlclr proc call. However the database is same as used by the context connection. (If I somehow get the database name from the context connection then I can use it to create another connection, but I am expecting an even better solution)   Any solution to this problem? Will be very thankful.
