I am trying to style a sharepoint 2010 home page of an enterprise wiki. I edited the page --> Format text --> HTML and i entered my css there.
The problem is: SharePoint keeps adding .ExternalClass in front of my defined classes which prevent them from working.
After half a day on google searching for a solution, I am here cap in hand.....

I need to post a form result from an external website directly into a sharepoint 2013 list.  The list allows anonymous access. The preference would be to do this from either javascript or a .aspx page the web serve.  Nothing can be added or changed on the sharepoint 2013 farm in any way.

can it be done?
I'm looking for a quick and easy way to sync a SharePoint 2010 custom list with Exchange address list and populate user attributes like telephone, email, job position etc...

I don't want to use any 3rd party add-ons or webparts as this should be implemented out-of-box.
I am using MS Access 2016, trying to link to a Sharepoint list on our Office 365 account and I am getting a message that reads "Micorosft Access could not connect to the site you sprecified. Verify the addresss of the site or contact your site administrator". The site address I am using is and I suspect the issue may be that I someone has messed with permissions in Sharepoint so that it prevents me from accessing it. Does that sound right, and if so can anyone tell me how I can modify permissions to allow this to happen?

PS If I try to export a table to a sharepoint list I get the message "There was an error creating Sharepoint list. Property not found"
Hi - I'm looking to calculate the workdays between 2 date fields in Sharepoint.  I found the solution below, which gets me partially there, however I need to show a "-" for blank dates, and also, if both dates are the same, we still count that as 1 business day. So if we send a request on 7/24 and the company replies on 7/24 that's 1 day, not 0. But the next day is also 1 day too.   I tried to run add another if statement in there to at least ignore blank dates, but it didn't work.  Here is my formula =IF(ISBLANK([Date Call Into Vendor]),"-",DATEDIF([Date Call Into Vendor],[Date Called w/ State Date],"D")-FLOOR((DATEDIF([Date Call Into Vendor],[Date Called w/ State Date],"D")+WEEKDAY([Date Call Into Vendor]))/7,1)*2-IF(WEEKDAY([Date Called w/ State Date])=7,0,1)+IF(WEEKDAY([Date Call Into Vendor])=7,2,1))
Dear Experts,

I have a question.
Currently we have a O365 tenant with several customers in it, using e-mail.
We are isolating these users with seperate address lists.

Now 2 customers want Sharepoint. because of the 1 tenant they can see each other when they search for users.
Also the other user is able to view the other Site i have created.

Is there a way to isolate these sites? so the uses dont know they are on the same O365 tenant.

If you have any suggestions where to start that would be great! thanks in advance.

I have a web part page displaying 5 web parts. Four of the web parts (Efforts, Phases, Capture Points & Areas) are "provider" web parts, and come from lists that are the sources of 4 lookup columns in the 5th "consumer" web part (Lessons Learned).

The provider web parts are displaying the Title column from the lists.

The Using Javascript/jQuery, I "connected" the 4 provider web parts to the consumer web part, such that when you click on a Title column value, the consumer web part is filtered to show only those records that have the clicked value in the relevant metadata column.

All that is working very nicely.

Now, my requirement is to go one step further, and display the number of items that will be displayed if you click on a Title column value in any of the 4 web parts. If there are none, a "0" should be displayed.

I've constructed a lists service query that successfully returns the number of items that exist for a given, hard-coded, metadata value:
[SiteURL]/_vti_bin/listdata.svc/[ListName]/$count?&$filter=Effort/Title eq 'AAA'

So, the goal is to display such an item count beside the corresponding provider web part value, such as:
Efforts web part:
AAA (10) //assuming there are 10 items in the consumer web part tagged with Effort 'AAA'

Now, I'm bumping up against the current limit of my abilities.

I know that I need code (javascript, rest, ajax, json) for each provider web part with looping to cycle through all of the TD cells that have …

I have a form I built in Sharepoint 2010 tied to a List.  I have version control turned on and for one key field I utilize the Append function to track history.  This is great, however when I export I am aware of a known limitation that only the last update is exported.  My challenge is that I have users that update this key field and then come back and make a change to the form (not including the key field).  This results in blank data when exported.  

Question: Is there a way to include detail from the last 2 versions when exporting to excel?
I'm curious how other people are doing file servicing in what is going to become a post-physical-file-server world at some point.

Specifically, I have a client with 50 users and about 800 GB of data on a Windows 2012 file server.  Accessing the file server works fine when you're in the office and VPN for remote access works but most people hate it (VPN is slow, of course).  We have lots of people who travel and work from home.  It's a Mac and PC network with about 40 PCs and 10 Macs with about 45 people in the office and 5 people permanently remote.

We use Office365 Exchange for email, and I've seen OneDrive/SharePoint in use - and I think OneDrive/SharePoint are not mature enough yet for a modern office with no tolerance for instability (I support a client with 150 users with OneDrive syncing down to the desktop and the number and frequency of sync problems is unreasonably high).

What are other people doing in this situation for file servicing?  I could move to Dropbox, Google Drive, Box, or OneDrive/SharePoint.  My goal is efficiency (ease of use and rock solid functionlaity) - particularly for traveling users who are having trouble with larger PowerPoints (20+ MB).  

I'm generally just wondering what others have thought about or done in similar situations - or what others might recommend.  

Hi All,
I have a doc library with many folders.  
I created a view where Checked out to = [Me]
If I go to the folder and choose the checked out view it works
If I am in the library and not in the folder I don't see my checked out file in a folder

How do I set up the view at the top level of the library and it spans all folders?
Also how do I see ALL checked out files regardless of who checked them out and where within the library?

We use a shared calendar in Exchange to maintain an office schedule in each user's Outlook. When I try to overlay this calendar over our SharePoint calendar, the result is numerous non-descript entries (such as 8:00am, 9:30am, etc.) from my personal calendar. I am specifying the group calendar name from Exchange, and the Find button seems to locate the calendar, but the overlay clearly is my personal calendar. I also don't understand why the calendar entry descriptions are merely the hours associated with each entry, not the actual entry descriptions.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
I have a project where I need to programmatically (C#) pass a function the name of a parent Task List item and return a list of the children listitem IDs.

I see that there is a ParentID, but it has values that don't really help.  Such as 1;1 for several and 2;2 for several more.  Nothing about those values tell me the ID of their parent.

Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated.

               tokenUserName="NT AUTHORITY\IUSR"


and in event log I keep getting an error security-kerberos event ID: 3

A Kerberos error message was received:

 Client Time:
 Server Time: 8:20:11.0000 7/18/2017 Z
 Extended Error: 0xc0000035 KLIN(0)

And In my sharepoint Farm, I cannot create any service application with error request timeout! when I check the correlation ID nothing with unexpected or critical to mention!

even when I start farm configuration wizard from CA it keep processing for a while and ending up with error request timeout!

and that happened after I upgraded sharepoint and database content.

Any help please.

I am using Sharepoint Online (O365) and have a content search query that shows all subsites. Problem is the display is one super long column since there are about 20 subsites.
Ok is there a way to output those results to multiple columns so I'm looking at more results without having to scroll down the page?
I migrated a site and when I try to open an InfoPath form it's fine in InfoPath, but when I open it in the browser it fails with a correlation error.  It worked at the original site both within InfoPath and also a browser.

I haven't a clue what to do or make of the error.

Here is the correlation id :a76a059e-d08c-4000-2beb-46837449762c

Also of note (major) is that the error says it cannot open up the form and the URL includes the migrated site name.  This must be the issue, but I don't see where I can correct that.

Please advise and thanks.
I have a workflow that needs to set a status value based on finding 0 or more listitems in another list that have one value for selecting the listitems and then the count of all of these that have a particular value for one of it's columns.

Kind of like in SQL  doing :  Select count(*) from OtherTable A Where A.SelectColumn={CurrentItem.ID} and A.Status="Complete"

I need that count.

Also,  I don't see how to make a compound Boolean expression for the if conditions and would appreciate a "clue" on that.

BTW,  I am running SPD2013 and the Workflow is a 2010 type.
