Don't like one of your page layouts on your SharePoint Site? No problem, you can solve this problem quickly and easily using the free SharePoint Designer. It doesn't take any programming, just a couple minor HTML tweaks. Note: This is different from modifying the master page, which will effect every page on the site. Instead, we'll be detaching the page from the master page, therefore making it unique on the site. This obviously has its cons when its comes to long-term site style. Here's how a site ...
Quite simple really :) Open up an existing DVWP or create one. Right click the DVWP and select ‘Common Data View Tasks’ (or click the little arrow that appears on the top right of the DVWP) Click the ‘Parameters’ link In the dialog that opens up click the ‘New Parameter’ button. Provide a name for the parameter (e.g. IPAddress) In the ‘Parameter Source’ dropdown select ‘Server Variable’ In the ‘Server Variable Name’ text box enter REMOTE_ADDR Leave the ‘Default Value’ text box empty Click OK Now ...
When I updated the ‘Filter Criteria’ of a fully functioning DVWP through SharePoint designer I was presented with the following error: The server returned a non-specific error when trying to get data from the data source. Check the format and content of your query and try again. If the problem persists, contact the server administrator. Took me a while to figure it out. This is what caused it and how to fix it: When you create a DWVP, SPDesigner adds a parameter called ListID and assigns it the GUID ...
Last night someone said that you could not use a SP Designer Workflow with Infopath. I guess it’s one of those things that not everyone has worked with. I take it for granted, because I have been using SPD workflows and Infopath. For all of you who never actually have used Infopath. You can publish an Infopath Form and elevate certain fields in the form to a SharePoint Form Library. Before you want to add these columns to the library you want to add them to the Form Options Section (Tools Menu –> ...
Many people configure email alerts in SharePoint through SharePoint Designer Workflows. The process is simple and useful, here it is outlined at End User SharePoint. In a nutshell, you create a workflow that sends out an alert, attach the workflow to a document library or list in SharePoint, tell SharePoint to run the workflow whenever the library/list changes. The options for sending the alert in SharePoint out of the box are limited to sending a plain email. I want more. Enter the /n software SharePoint ...
At EndUserSharePoint I noticed that he encountered a bug when checking in files, so I responded with a little fix I created that involves a SharePoint Designer Workflow. Here is a link to his blog post: http://www.endusersharepoin... It looks like a few people want to know how you would use SharePoint Designer to Check-In Items. So here is a little walk-through (will be adding screen shots as this post has been moved): For starters you need to open up Microsoft Office SharePoint Designer ...
B2TR of SharePoint designer even though its a bit more stable than plain old B2, it is still frustrating to work with. I will be editing a DVWP when all of a sudden an action like adding a new <tr>, or saving would cause the whole thing to crash. Whats worse is if I restart it after the crash, and open the page, DVWP i was working on will be corrupted. This just sucks. Minor consolation is the DVWP works, but I cant do too much before SPD crashes. 1 step forward... well its more like the wall ...
