Problems with the & symbol in the term store management

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 31, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Hi, I encountered a strange error in the production environment of one of our customers. The ‘&’ symbol is being shown, in the term store management, as this ‘?’ symbol. In our test environment this problem does not occur. Did anyone else encounter this issue? I am really curious what causes it. Thanks in advance for the help.

Having problems installing/setting up SQL Server 2008 Express/R2 for ASP.NET user management on deve

I'm a bit new to installing and configuring, well, just about anything regarding databases, so please bear with me. I'm currently building a couple of ASP.NET MVC 2 sites.  I'm following along with the MVCMusicStore tutorial, and am trying to set up user management using ASP.NET's configuration tool.  The problem is that ASP.NET can't 'see' the database. I have SQL Server 2008 installed on my laptop.  It's the version which is available on the Web Platform Installer (I believe it's Express).  When I try running the aspnet_sqlreg.exe program to set up my user management database, it can't tell that I'm running any version of SQL Server at all.  I get an exception about 'named pipes', and some other things I don't understand at the moment. Obviously, this is all a bit over my head.  Is there an idiot proof guide or tutorial available that describes, step-by-step, how to: 1. Install SQL Server 2008 on a development PC 2. How to configure it to be used by Visual Studio 2010 Professional 3. How to properly upload/modify the db on the production server with what's on the development PC Essentially, all the things that the ASP.NET tutorials gloss over.  Any suggestions, links to documentation, or other nudges in the right direction would be immensely appreciated.

Taxonomy term store additions via site setting are not visible to user in RC1

Is see that its possible to define Taxonomy term store via SharePoint main central  admin page. But when I try to add term store entries via a new site in the same collection ....  site setting -> Site Administration -> Term store management any new entries are not visible. That is to say when a user starts to enter a tag the helper dialog does not show any values added via the site but all values add via the central admin do appear. this seems like a bug and the is in RC1 or am I doing something wrong

Vista and SS Management Studio Install Problems

Hi, I'm running the Vista Beta 2 (x64) and am trying to install SSMS.  This is more or less a clean Vista install (had VS Web Express and SQL Server Express installed but those have been uninstalled).  The SSMS install comes up ok and I can enter my name and company.  It chugs along for a while and then fails.  This is what is in the event log: Product: Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio Express -- The installer has encountered an unexpected error installing this package. This may indicate a problem with this package. The error code is 29506. The arguments are: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Shared\, chue, C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Shared\, chue I thought maybe I had a bad install file, so I cleared my browser cache and re-downloaded the SSMS install, but the results are the same. As a side note, I am able to install the db engine (SQL Server Express SP1) without any problems. Any thoughts on this?

Deploying taxonomy term store and managed meta column from development machine to production machine

Hi, In my development environment, I created a taxonomy term store by importing a CSV file. I also created a site column of type "managed meta data" based on that term store. Now, I want to migrate to production environment. What is the best way to do this? When I generate the schema of my site column, it looks like this: <Field Type="TaxonomyFieldTypeMulti"    DisplayName="Article Type"    List="{d8b20e4f-ce12-4def-b59d-d44da2c13234}"    WebId="eef74e7c-a852-4c89-b811-e31b86853641"    ShowField="Path1033"    Required="FALSE"    EnforceUniqueValues="FALSE"    Group="Custom Columns"    ID="{47f78411-65fa-43c9-8cb8-68955aea1256}"    SourceID="{eef74e7c-a852-4c89-b811-e31b86853641}"    StaticName="Article_x0020_Type"    Name="Article_x0020_Type"    Version="4"    Mult="TRUE"    Sortable="FALSE"> <Default></Default> <Customization> <ArrayOfProperty> <Property> <Name>SspId</Name> <Value xmlns:q1="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" p4:type="q1:string" xmlns:p4="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">99d

How to add custom properties to terms in the SharePoint 2010 managed metadata term store?


There is a "Term.CustomProperties" collection to get the collection of custom property objects for the current Term object from the read-only dictionary.
But where and how to define and set custom properies for terms? This dictionary seems to be read-only by default.

Any help / documentation would be appreciated. / Frank

Exporting taxonomy term set from a term store?


Hi all,


We have been building our demonstration environment in MOSS 2010 Beta, and would like to find a way to export the taxonomy from the term store so we can import into the production environment.

Is there any way to accomplish this? (MSFT took the time to develop an Import function; maybe they also thought to add an Export function?)



Term Store Set: What happens to items tagged with the Term if the Term is moved within the Term Set


Just trying to understand how changes to a Term Set within the Term Store impact documents and other tagged items in the MOSS 2010 front end. If I move, deprecate or merge a Term within a Term Set, do all of the items marked with that Term reflect the change in data? What happens to the same items if the Term is deleted?

Thanks for clarification!

How to add/append metadata stored within the Sharepoint Term Store to a crawled item


Hi All,

I need someone to explain to me how to add/append metadata stored within the Sharepoint Term Store to a crawled item (i.e., can it only be done via External Content Type?). Bascially i need to know if there is any Out of the box solution for this?


Much appreciated.





Auto-Update Managed Metadata Term Store from External DB or List

Hi all,

I have been able to import terms using the .CSV file within the MMSA Term Store, but is there a way to auto-update the terms from an external list. Example: An external database already has terms and adds terms on a regular basis. Is there a method for updating the Term Store automatically when terms are added in the external source. Perhaps creating a SharePoint List populated with external data and somehow linking this up to the Managed Metadata terms? I know that System keywords are added to the term store when a user tags an item, but is there a way to tie into this functionality for managed metadata?

How to Export a TAXONOMY TERM STORE something similar to Importing a Term-Set



"Managed Metadata" is a cool new feature in SharePoint 2010 and Importing the Term-Set by building a .csv file is really handy.

But, my concern is; After building a good "TAXONOMY TERM STORE", Is there any way of Exporting? and Secondly, Is there any Industry Standard Term-Set are available which are very common to all the types of Industries?

Please let me know at the earliest.

Thanks in Advance and Regards,

Multi Valued Fields flooding the term store



In the User Profile store we have lots of multivalued properties. Somehow it seems like all the values for the Multi Value fields for user profiles are getting auto populated in the term store.

Can some one explain if by default Multivalued attributes get added to term store?

Also how to disable this behavior. We do not want some of the multivalued fields to get added to the Term Store.
