How to query for id's of the fields with List Data Retrival Services Query() web service

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 01, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Since i marked a post as answer in my previous topic, it seems that people dont visit the topic anymore as they see it as "answered" while it actually is only partially answered. So i guess i have to ask again in a different topic.    I need to get data from Sharepoint Server (3.0 i belive) for my Integration Services project. For that i use Sharepoint's webservices. I've read tutorials and downloaded sample programs to talk to WSS web services. I realise i have two ways to get items in a list: Use Query() or GetListItems(). Problem is, GetListItems() has a mandatory "Row limit" field and i might have to import ALOT of fields, so i thought Query() is better for me.  But, when using GetListItems(), the WSS returns the ID of the fields (for example, for a field of type user, something like "395;Ivanov Ivan Ivanovich" is returned) but when using Query() for the same list, WSS returns only the field value ("Ivanov Ivan Ivanovich") without the ID. I need it to return the ID as well. How can i set it up, on my side or server side, so i would receive the ID's, not only the values of the fields that are actually linking to something by ID when i use Query() web service?

Analysis Service Oracle Number inconsistent Data Type for TABLE or Named Query

Dear Gurus, I'd VERY OLD PROBLEM. And I believe it addressed since 2006. When I design DataSource Views from Oracle Data Source. I found it return different oracle number data type for TABLE or NAMED QUERY   Provider Data Type Column Data Type Data Source View Data Type Oracle OLE DB Provider (OraOLEDB.Oracle.1) Table Number System.Int64   View Number System.Decimal   Named Querey Number System.Decimal Microsoft OLE DB Provider for Oracle (MSDAORA.1) Table Number System.Double   View Number System.Double   Named Query   1 System.Int64   Named Query   1.1234 System.Int64 Althought I know I can fix IT via MANUALLY EDIT DATASOURCE VIEW XML SOURCE. But I don't think this is a better solution. Is anybody have ideas ?  Wilson

Infopath 2007: Cant we fetch data from a list or form library without using a Query to the data conn

I am trying to fetch data from a form library and a list (both secondary data sources). But cant do it without using a rule (Query using a data connection). However when I use the 'Refresh' control on the form it brings the value. I find it quite weird, as the connections are made properly and logically speaking all the data connetions should fetch dynamic data once the form opens or loads. Cant we do it without using a (data query) rule? Update: I am using a web based infopath forms, while using the same form on client its working fine. Why is that?

Is there a way to query entity based on multiple filter criteria? WCF Data Services, Linq to Entiti


Instead of:

DW_CMSOPEN dwc = new DW_CMSOPEN(new Uri("http://acctdev02/WCFDataService/EmployeeService.svc"));

dwc.Credentials = System.Net.CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials;

var employees = from emp in dwc.Employees 
             where emp.DEPT == "123"
             select emp;

I'd like the linq query to resemble:

var employees = from emp in dwc.Employees
              where emp.DEPT // in {"123", "456", etc}
              select emp;

Hey everyone,


For the most part, I have this thing figured out; however, I now need to assign to a property of a method's parameter a collection of member types.


Here is my query (I have emboldened the segment of the query which my question is directed towards):


          <Method Namespace="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sqlserver/masterdataservices/2009/09" Name="MetadataGetRequest">


          <Parameter Name="ResultOptions" Type="XML">

Why does modifying a Query causes all fields in the dataset to disappear in the Report Data pane


We routinely import reports from Microsoft CRM and amend them in Visual Studio 2008 eg to add column totals, change layouts etc

If the report needs more fields from CRM, I amend the SQL query in the CRM Dataset, adding the new field references (rather than recreate the report in CRM with new fields, import into  VS2008 and redo all  the formatting etc).

This worked fine until this week.

Whenever I modify the SQL query in the CRM Dataset, all the fields in the Dataset disappear in the Report Data pane.

Even changing a character in a field name which isn't used in the report - which should have absolutely no impact on the report - causes the fields to disappear.

As far as I'm aware, nothing has changed on our systems.

We use SQL 2008 reporting services and Microsoft Visual Studio 2008.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated!

List query in ASP.NET app using REST service


I cannot get this to work.  Getting an exception that provides no information.  I want to use an external ASP.NET app to query a single list in SP2010 using C# and the REST service listdata.svc, and bind the data to a gridview control.  Here's the code I have that does not work:

MySiteDataContext context = new MySiteDataContext(new Uri("http://mydevserver:1000/_vti_bin/listdata.svc"));
context.Credentials = new NetworkCredential("xxxx", "xxxx", "xxxx");

//the list name is actually Source
List<SourceItem> allSourceItems = context.Source.ToList();
var sourceItems = from c in allSourceItems
              select new {c.Id, c.Title };
GridView1.DataSource = sourceItems;

I already know the service works.  I can see the data in my browser when I go directly to the service
