For those new to message boards please try to follow a few simple rules when posting your question.
Choose the correct forum for your message. Posting a VB.NET question in the C++ forum will end in tears.
Be specific! Don't ask "can someone send me the code to create an application that does 'X'. Pinpoint exactly what it is you need help with.
Keep the subject line brief, but descriptive. eg "File Serialization problem"
Keep the question as brief as possible. If you have to include code, include the smallest snippet of code you can.
Be careful when including code that you haven't made a typo. Typing mistakes can become the focal point instead of the actual question you asked.
Do not remove or empty a message if others have replied. Keep the thread intact and available for others to search and read. If your problem was answered then edit your message and add "[Solved]" to the subject line of the original post, and cast an approval vote to the one or several answers that really helped you.
If you are posting source code with your question, place it inside <pre></pre> tags. We advise you also check the "Encode "<" (and other HTML) characters when pasting" checkbox before pasting anything inside the PRE block, and make sure "Use HTML in this post" check box is checked.
Be courteous and DON'T SHOUT. Everyone here helps because they enjoy helping others, not because it's their job.
Please do not post links to your question into an unrelated forum such as the lounge. It will be deleted. Likewise, do not post the same question in more than one forum.
Do not be abusive, offensive, inappropriate or harass anyone on the boards. Doing so will get you kicked off and banned. Play nice.
If you have a school or university assignment, assume that your teacher or lecturer is also reading these forums.
No advertising or soliciting.
We reserve the right to move your posts to a more appropriate forum or to delete anything deemed inappropriate or illegal.
I'm trying to come up with the best way to display an annual message to each user that they need to Sign-Off on our IT Policy. I already have a list with the Policy Verbiage, a drop-down with "Agree" or "Disagree", and the next Sign-Off Date which is Calculated as "[today]+365" .. How can I show a message for each user once the next Sign-Off Date comes due?
There are two lists in my app that are joined by a lookup column. The parent list is named TransactionHeader and the child list is named TransactionItems. For every item in the TransactionHeader list there will be one or more related items in the TransactionItems list. What I'm trying to do is retrieve items from the TransactionItems list but join to the TransactionHeader list so that I can also retrieve related data.
This CAML always results in a 'Cannot complete this action' message being displayed.
A little more information in case it's important; after building the query I'm loading the TransactionItems list like so:
var ctx = new SP.ClientContext.get_current();
var camlQuery = new SP.CamlQuery();
var list = ctx.get_web().get_lists().getByTitle("TransactionItems");
TransactionItem.TransactionItems = list.getItems(query);
If anybody can give me a steer as to where I'm going wrong it would be appreciated. If you need any more info then please ask.
I would appreciate being pointed in the right direction if this is possible to run on a system that does not have SharePoint services installed.
First let me say I have very limited experience with SharePoint services other than using it as a table in MS Access.
My need is to pull data from an existing database and update a SharePoint list nightly. It will need to be either a Console app, Windows App or PowerShell script that can be scheduled to run from a job server nightly. The job server is a Windows 2008 server without SharePoint installed.
In my searching I have seen several references to using the Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell in PowerShell, but I can't seem to find that on my system. Similarly in C# console app I am unable to include the Microsoft.SharePoint.
I have built a quick solution in MS Access to update the list, but it requires a person to run the process.
