C# Application linked to SharePoint List

Hello,

I had created a tracking program that submitted data to a 2003 SharePoint List, he company has since recently upgraded to SharePoint 2007, of course the submit function of the program to the SharePoint list no longer functions.  Is it not as simple as changing the URL and the GUID or do I have to delete the reference and resources and start all over?  If thats the case, is anyone aware of a non application way of getting both the View GUID and the List GUID off of a list in SharePoint 2007?

OK, you're using the List web service.

In 2007 you can't do this while not on the actual server if you have "Web Page Security Validation" enabled... you need to SPWeb.AllowUnsafeUpdates = true;.


To get the View/List Guid you can use the HTML/Javascript page: http://www.users.on.net/~ray1/fireWS.zip (http://blog.ray1.net/2008/03/ajax-web-service-and-sharepoint.html)

Use the List web service > Operation: GetListAndView > Enter your list name and you're done.

U need to give code for us to accurately tell you what's required.

If your app is sending/inserting then you don't need a view GUID... in fact you don't need any guid's. Get a reference to the SPWeb > SPList > SPListItem > Add().

Hey Raybies,
One thing I am concerned with is the open connection, I was using the ViewGUID to close the connection to SharePoint, there are strict guidelines in building apps that require the GUID to be used rather then the way you had defined above.  Is there anything else you can think of?

Below is the code, it is set currently with a service reference to the list.
