Here is a link to a SharePoint resource centre created by Rackspace. It has got some great tutorials by MVPs and other useful tid bits, enjoy!
As part of the current project I’m working on, I needed to create a data view which passed a querystring parameter into a data view web part to display filtered data. The idea was to export this data to Excel using the export feature on the office ribbon available on SharePoint 2010.
To create the the view and apply the filter was very simple. I used SharePoint designer 2010, created a new web part page and inserted a data view. I re-arranged my columns and then applied the Query string parameter filter to the view. When I tested the view, it worked nicely. So the next step was to export the data to excel. This didn’t seem to work… so I was left scratching my head…
<button onclick=”exportToExcel();”>Export to Excel File</button>

So this worked, but there is a few gotchas:
Thanks to the guys on MS SharePoint forums!!
When adding web parts to a page (especially custom developed web parts), the page can stop working due to errors in the web part. I have expereinced this many times when you install a web part for the first time. Deleting or removing the web part can be difficult when this type of error occurs. Fear not, there is a back door, to removing this rogue web part. On the end of the URL of the page add “?contents=1”. This will bring up a maintenance page allowing you to close or delete the web part that has not worked as intended.
Happy SharePointing Y’all 🙂

So there I was, a project purely to be developed without code, a former coder’s worst nightmare! I came across a slight issue where I needed to allow certain users access to edit fields on a form and others to view. The following article helped a bundle:
It was written for SharePoint Designer 2007 but still applies for 2010 🙂
