How do I change the order of column names in EditForm.aspx

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 01, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I have an Announcements list to which I've added extra columns: Publish (date), De-Publish (date), and Category (choice).  When I go to EditForm.aspx, the columns display in this order: Title , Body, De-Publish , Category and Publish . I'd like to change the order of the columns on EditForm.aspx so that it is Title, Body, Category, Publish and De-Publish . Changing the All Items view doesn't do it. How might I change the order of columns that is shown to the user?

dynamically change column names in Crystal reports


I need to develop 3 pages.

On the first page user defines atmost 7 column names to be displayed on the report. I'm saving these names in a Sql DB table 'Columns' with Column_Nm and Column_ID as Table columns.

On the second page I'm retrieving column_Nm from the table and displaying them on the page so that the user enters the data. This data is saved in another table 'Summary' with the Columns column1 through column7.

on the 3rd page I need to show a report of 'Summary' table.

How do I dynamically replace column1 through column7 names with that of 'Column_Nm' on the report?

Any help/suggestions would be appreciated.

Change column names in report based on another dataset


My report displays a result set from DataSet1 which contains non-descriptive column names that are shown as my column headers.

A1, A2, A3, A4, ...

I have a second Dataset that contains 'friendly' names:

A1  Jan

A2   Feb

A3  Mar


How can I map the friendly names from DataSet2 to the column names that came with DataSet1?

Thank you for any help you may be able to provide.

Bug: Does not change column type from nvarchar to ntext


Scenario: If you create a table with a column of type nvarchar, populate it with some content and try to modify it using the WebMatrix editor, from nvarchar to ntext, it does not display any error message or warning that this is not possible. It silently saves and reverts the change, back to nvarchar. Wasted some hours on this issue as I thought my column was ntext, but in fact was still nvarchar.

Expected behavior: It should change to ntext, or if SQL CE doesn't support that, it should notify the user that no change was applied.

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?

Custom Editform.aspx crashes Sharepoint Designer

Hi there,

I've recently designed a sharepoint list and customised newform.aspx and editform.aspx. I made copies of the originals then customised the copies.
On both forms I simply:

* Closed original List Form web part
* Added Custom List Form
* Added some section breaks (<tr>) to the form to break it into sections
* Added a new css style to change the background colour on the section breaks (table rows)

Now NewForm.aspx works fine. However after making above changes in EditForm.aspx, I saved it. However whenever I try to reopen EditForm.aspx in Sharepoint Designer (SD), SD crashes! I can only open it in Text view. The error details reported by SD are:

DataGridView>Edit Columns> Column Read Only property is unwilling to change

Hello, I am facing the following mystery: When changing the read only property of a column to false and reopening the "edit columns" window, it mysteriously turns back to true. Even when closing the designer and changing it in the designer code, the resulting execution does not allow edit, as well as when re-opening the designer you see true again.             this.numberDataGridViewTextBoxColumn1.DataPropertyName = "Number";             this.numberDataGridViewTextBoxColumn1.HeaderText = "Number";             this.numberDataGridViewTextBoxColumn1.Name = "numberDataGridViewTextBoxColumn1";             this.numberDataGridViewTextBoxColumn1.ReadOnly = true;//False is required We thought it might be related to data binding. rebinding the grid did not help as well. The is no other place in the code where it changes. Please advice, Thanks

SSIS Changing Column Order during Transformation

First let me say, I really can't believe this chain of events myself--and they are happening to me. I am upgrading several DTS packages to SSIS on what will be my new production server.  These packages create tables, export them to a flat file, and ftp them off to other locations. What is happening (on the SSIS side) is that the OLE DB Source is reordering some of the columns on its own (moving them to the end of the table/file.  Then when my pickup/load routines run, the data is out of place and they fail. Can anyone please explain what is happening here with the mapping.  I have evaluated the table and the columns are in the order that I expect.  When I preview the source table in the OLE DB Source Editor the columns are in the correct order/alignment, but when them in the OLE DB Source Editor --Columns section within BIDS the order is changed arbitrarily. I have been somewhat successful (2 out of 3) in being able to re-map the data, but this last table just doesn't want to change.  Thanks in advance for any help and/or information you can provide

What is the meaning of Ascending\descending sort order of a column within an index

When I add a new index I can also specify the "sort order" as ascending or descending. What does it mean? does it affect performance? does it mean that the binary search tree will be set in a certain way?

Change Default Column Value programatically

On a Document Library Settings Page, there is a new setting in SP2010: "Change Default Column Value". Changing the default value of the Field is different from this value. Does anyone know what this value is and where to set it programatically? Also, what libraries is this setting available on? This code updates the field's default value but not the property mentioned above: SPField field = list.Fields["Column"]; field.DefaultValue = "DefaultValue"; field.Update(); Thanks!
