When coping folders and files from a server share to a Sharepoint share, on occasion I will get a message that says the file is too long to be copied over.
Is there a way to overcome this?
The copying is being done on a Windows Server 2012 R2 server and being done with copy and paste method.

Experts,
 We have one visual web part in share point where we are pulling data from external SQL database by SQL connection string. We used default connection string. We have concern about execution time of query and timeout. Which parameter used for command execution and what is the default limit?

I have been trying to set up two SharePoint pages / sites HR Test SharePoint Site & Safety Test SharePoint Site Share1(see screen shot Share2.JPG).  I do not see these in any of the SharePoint folders (see screen shot Share2.JPG).  I don't see a way to create a logical menu for users to navigate to HR Test SharePoint Site & Safety Test SharePoint Site from the main SharePoint site.

We just switched to office 365.  We currently use an external program to publish a group calendar and contacts.  I want to be able to see these on mobile devices but I don't think public folders will show on mobile devices or I would set up public folders.  I could probably do it through sharepoint but I don't know how to use it either.  I've watched videos and know how to create the sharepoint calendar but can anyone tell me how to connect others in the company through their outlook?

Can SharePoint 2007 ContentDB's be attached and upgraded in place on a 2016 Farm, or does it require a double hop?

A user of mine has a copy of office365 for business prmium with ODFB and sharepoint etc and wishes for his secretaries/assistants to view/edit a selection of his files. This he has done successfully via a link share, however this seems a grave security risk, whether the link can be shared or not etc, he wishes for the users to at least login to gain access.
We have created a number of users within his organisation however each appears to need a licence to be assigned for access, which seems over kill when Onedrive shares a link for free.
These created users obtain a link and logon  e.g     users1@mysite.onmicrosoft.com which is good except they still can't view any of the shared files. I'm sure if we purchases a number of sharepoint licences for the users we could setup a team site however the usage from the users is minimal and not worth the £3.80 per month per user.

So there must be a way of sharing your data on one drive for business in a more secure way than sending a link

I need to create a report based on a sharepoint online list. When our sharepoint server was in house, this was not a problem but I cannot get the connection string to work for sharepoint online. I do not know power BI and frankly don't have time to learn it. If I can get SSRS to connect and I can get my report done in 1/2 hour. Anyone know the connection string to make this work?

2013SP1 SPFoundation
Very small deployment  of SP with very little bells and whistles/feature(what comes with foundation) use.
Setup for a while but revisiting now.

Top level site1, different site2 for for another building and then a site3 for a dept within that building.

Site 2 (top level) used two web parts off to the right and added links, that show once and correctly, under each WP area to websites.
Site 3 Created Added one web part to existing webpart that came with site them chosen and it duplicates any site I add to either WP in BOTH WPs.

I have reviewed settings, compared settings to other sites, etc.. not sure what the issue is, why duplicating.

Thank you.

10 Tips to Protect Your Business from Ransomware

Hello Experts,

I am attempting to have a table of contents generate automatically on SharePoint Online's Enterprise Wiki.  I came across this article that is exactly on point for this topic; however, upon initial implementation it didn't work as expected.

Further investigation led me to realize the classes defined within the code weren't correct so I update them and now the TOC does automatically generate based upon the heading type; however, there's no level differentiation in terms of the TOC's outline occurring so H1 is at the same outline level as say  H4.  

Unfortunately I am not well-versed in java script so I was wondering if one of you could lend me a hand?

Thank you

We have Office 365 and we are using SharePoint & OneDrive with the new Files On Demand feature in the sync client.  We have recently renamed some document libraries on SharePoint by way of the online portal.   The Document library names have not changed on our locally synced copies.  Is there a way to force that to happen that does not include stopping the sync, deleting the library locally and then re-syncing the new library all over again just to pick up the name change?   That seems to be the only answer I can find online and that just seems ridiculous.   Any help appreciated.  Very frustrated with Microsoft cloud storage products.

Hello - I am running SharePoint 2016, one site collection and I have setup sites. All is working except when I attempt to share a page I have created within a site, the link in the email that is sent to users I'd like to share with, has it going to the main site URL and not the page I am trying to share.

Same with a calendar I am trying to share out...it continues to send the URL of the main site within the email rather then the link URL to calendar or page.

I really appreciate your help.

Hi,

We have sharepoint 2016 and having an issue with the people picker.
It's showing users from forest\Accounts\Ext_users
We want all accounts in that specific Organizational Unit to be excluded from the people picker.

I found this and its helpfull.. http://www.sharepointdiary.com/2012/04/people-picker-filter-in-sharepoint.html 
But it doesn't specifically talk about excluding a specific OU. And I'd like the fix to get applied on the entire web application. Not just a site collection.


Anyone can help me with this?

Thank you so much for your help.

Hi all!

About Sharepoint 2013 & Sharepoint 2016:

I need to change top navigation menu font size.
I'm very novice in Sharepoint and I understand I have to use Sharepoint Designer 2013 to change maybe Oslo.html or some css files.
Please tell me what is the easiest way to change that font size on the top menu?
I would like to have exact information what to do and how and where. Thanks in advance!

In InfoPath Designer 2013 I am trying to upload a form templet to Share Point location and I am getting error :”There is some issue in assemble metadata service. Please try again.”
This form was uploading properly before,  one other person was adjusting just some form formating minor issue as form is (moving some check box from and extending some text box size .)
After that intervention it looks like form start to behave strange and gives this error.
 Not sure why is this error popping up as upload procedure was working fine before. I have several other very similar forms that could be uploaded to the same location without problem??
Is it something that I should check in this form template properties or …?

Hello
I have an excel document in MS Teams that I want to share and allow folks to edit - but I only want them to edit it one at a time (basically check out/check in or lock it for editing when someone else is already editing).
It seems I can do this as all documents in Teams are saved in a SharePoint library. I have been told that I can go to the site, then the library and choose Library Settings from the gear menu. Then choose Versioning Settings. Then choose "Require documents to be checked out before they can be edited" all the way down at the bottom.

My question is this - when I select the appropriate Versioning setting on the library - what exactly is the "library" that I am affecting?
I don't think it is affecting just that document. Is the library in this case the "folder" that contains the specific file in question (along with a couple of others that will not be edited anyway) - and this folder is what was created when I create the channel in the MS Teams team and saved files there?
Or is the Library some other level? For example is this library associated with all channels in the Team?
Or is the Library a higher level that that that affects all Teams and Channels?

I cannot find anything that tells me (or even seems to indicate when editing the settings in sharepoint) at what level the "Library" is defined (and why is it called a library anyway - we are all used to folders - just call it that....unless there is some reason that it is different).

Anyway…

Running Sharepoint 2010 Site for use as a budgeting tool.

The external content types we created uses BCS to connect to a Sql2008r2 Server to pull content from views on the Finance database.

A recent Software uprade required 'SQL2012' we had no choice but to move the database to a Sql2012 server. This was done successfully and it's been a few weeks now and all went well.

However we ran into some problems changing the Server name for the External System named 'LiveDB'  We were getting errors but managed to work through them and finally had it connected and running after editing an unused External System called 'LiveDB2" ONE BIG PROBLEM THOUGH the ECT tabs were open in Sharepoint Designer and to close them we were prompted that unsaved changes existed and faced with having to discard changes or Save Them.  We weren't sure what these changes were but didn't want to take a chance that the changes we made to get the BCS and ECT  working would be lost. So we save the changes and immediately we opened the Sharepoint site and as soon as we clicked the link that retrieved the External content we got the following error:  

This web part is configured to display a type of data that no longer exists in Business Data Connectivity.  
Open the tool pane to reconfigure the web part. Administrators, see the server log for more information.   
Correlation ID:0d38e495-6e97-4f5f-894b-fece5461e07d  

Open in new window


Can anyone tell me how I could possibly get this  back or what change would cause something like this?.  It was working perfectly until I clicked save in SP Designer.

How can I get the external content types back into BCS?
