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.
Create a form on one share point but data sent to another site
I have two separate share point sites. One is used as a public intranet site for all employees. The other is an office specific site. The office one has many restricted settings so only certain people can access it. The other is fully public for all employees. They are on separate servers. So one is not a sub site to the other.
I tried using infopath to create a form on one site and submit the data to the other one, but it failed. I need the data protected because of it being personnel info being submitted but I need any employee to be able to submit it.
My main concern is data security. The info submitted must remain locked down and only viewable to a my office. But I need everyone to be able to submit a form.
I tried using a minted workflow but it would not connect between the two sites.
Any thoughts on how to do this between to separate sharepoint sites?
Solved it finally.
On the OOS server. in PowerShell run the following commands. Change 25 to whatever you want.
$farm = Get-OfficeWebAppsFarm
$farm.ExcelWorkbookSizeMax = 25
Set-OfficeWebAppsFarm -ExcelWorkbookSizeMax 25

I am trying to get a SharePoint 2013 application WebPart working compiled with Visual Studio 2019. First, I have added the custom app to the SharePoint catalog but under the header "Valid App Package" column the value is No. Second when I create a Farm Collection and try to Build an app I get the error
message "You need Office Development tools to create a site". I have looked for the download but can't find one. Has anyone experienced this same issue?
I have to open my word document which is present in SharePoint library in client word application, but it should open as a new document that mens original document behaves like a template from which new document will take content and open as new. Currently we are using content type where we have given the url of the base document which will allow us to open that document as new.
But each time we have to click on drop down to select the document and we dont want to use it.
I am using SharePoint modern experience thats why i can not use script inside web part to do that and also i don't have any server side coding to do this.
I got the following url which we can put in browser which will open given document in client word application but this is not a valid hyper-link or navigation link so can not use it.
I have been trying for a couple of weeks to get this rolling and am pulling out what little hair I have left. I have a custom list and when an item gets added, I have a workflow set to create an item in an external list. So I associate the workflow with the custom list and target the external list. This is supposed to be possible. In SharePoint designer, I can target the external list by selecting a 2010 workflow but when it comes to mapping the fields, all I get is a blank list. I have tried the same operation using Visual Studio. There, it will not even let me target the external list. I have tried this in SharePoint Online as well as on-premises 2016 Sharepoint Server. I have tried using SP Designer and VS from my desktop as well as from installed on the server. I have all of the credentials I need - I am site admin/owner. There has got to be a small setup piece that I am missing because I have seen many posts where people have done exactly what I am describing and only a couple of posts where people have encountered the same issue I am having. In those cases, no meaningful help was ever offered. Hoping some kind soul reads this and passes on the key. Thanks!!!
The set of claims could not be mapped to a single user identity. Exception 3001003;reason=The incoming identity is mapped to more than one user profile account in SharePoint
so Into User Profile Service I go.
Looking thru the User Profile service discovered I had two user profiles due to Domain name changes from mergers etc.... Ended up deleting one of the userprofiles and everything worked.
Central Admin || Application Management || Manage Service Applications || User Profile Service Application.
Search for and find the Account that is kicking off the workflow. In my case it was my own. In many cases it might be others.
Delete the one that you don't need. In my case there was a olddomain\myUsername Pretty easy to find.
Things then worked fine.

The issue is related to SharePoint 2013. The size of 'WSS_Content' content database is 111 GB and consists of migrated SharePoint 2010 site collections via Sharegate. Now, i want to delete all the site collections without deleting the database. How do i do that?
Hi, When I'm trying to access Sharepoint admin it's sending me message. I'm unauthorized.
My admin also don't know how to give me access. Do you have any specific steps to share point to follow in admin panel for upgrading my account? Thanks
