Hi Experts
I am farm admin in a SharePoint farm in my company . I want to know how many users having personal view in a SharePoint list? And users identity?

I want to do it programmatically. Any Idea how to achieve this?
Any help appreciated

I tried with following code but only giving me my personal view, not all personal views from all users.


string site = Convert.ToString(txtsiteUrl.Text);
            string list = Convert.ToString(txtListName.Text);


            SPSite spsite = new SPSite(site);

            SPWeb spweb = spsite.OpenWeb();

            SPList splist = spweb.Lists[list];

            SPViewCollection views = splist.Views;

            foreach (SPView view in views)
            {
                if (view.PersonalView)
                {
                    Response.Write(view.Title + "</br>");
                    Response.Write(view.Views.Count + "</br>");
                }
            }




Thanks

Instantiate SPSite with the system account.

SystemAccount.UserToken
SPSite spsite = new SPSite(site);
SPWeb spweb = spsite.OpenWeb();
SPSecurity.RunWithElevatedPrivileges(delegate()
{
	try
	{
		SPSite oElevSite = new SPSite(site, spweb.Site.SystemAccount.UserToken);
		SPWeb oElevWeb = oElevSite.RootWeb;		
		SPList splist = oElevWeb.Lists[list];
		SPViewCollection views = splist.Views;
		foreach (SPView view in views)
		{
			if (view.PersonalView)
			{
				Response.Write(view.Title + "</br>");
				Response.Write(view.Views.Count + "</br>");
			}
		}
		oElevWeb.Dispose();
		oElevSite.Dispose();
	}
	catch
	{
		
	}
});

Ok... hmm... I got, and this time I tested it ;0)
static void GetViews(SPSite site)
        {
            SPWeb spweb = site.OpenWeb();
            foreach(SPUser oUser in spweb.AllUsers)
            {
                SPSecurity.RunWithElevatedPrivileges(delegate()
                {
                    try
                    {
                        SPSite oElevSite = new SPSite(site.ID, oUser.UserToken);
                        SPWeb oElevWeb = oElevSite.RootWeb;
                        SPList splist = oElevWeb.Lists["CustomStatusList"];
                        SPViewCollection views = splist.Views;
                        foreach (SPView view in views)
                        {
                            if (view.PersonalView)
                            {
                                Console.WriteLine(oUser.Name +":"+ view.Title);
                            }
                        }
                        oElevWeb.Dispose();
                        oElevSite.Dispose();
                    }
                    catch
                    {

                    }
                });

Hi Raybies/NZWizard,

It would be really very helpful if you share the powershell to delete a user's personal view for doc library, situation is like a user has exceeded number of personal views (50) and not able to access view now, getting error "The maximum number of web parts for all zones on this page has been exceeded"

Thanks in advance
