How to get the list of folders and subfolders from a SharePoint document library
Posted by Rajanihanth in SharePoint 2007, SharePoint 2010, Tech Tips-SharePoint on July 13, 2012
There are many ways to get files & folder details from SharePoint (programmatically) but my manager asked me to provide the list of folders and sub folders from a SharePoint document library urgently. So I wanted get an idea to provide the information quickly, after spending few minutes on the web and found this post (I know about the DIR command but didn’t think about the SharePoint UNC). Yes, we can get the details using DOS command with UNC path. 🙂
First of all, we want to know about UNC and the DIR command.
UNC: Universal Naming Convention, a format for specifying the location of resources on a local-area network (LAN). Read more about this here.
DIR: Display a list of files and subfolders. Read more about this here.
Syntax: DIR [pathname(s)] [display_format] [file_attributes] [sorted] [time] [options]
To get SharePoint UNC path, just remove http: from the SharePoint url and replace the forward slash with backslash. So my document library path is:
then it’s UNC will be like this:
Okay.. we will see the steps here, I have created a document library (StepBiStep) for testing purpose.
Step 1: Open the cmd prompt
Step 2: type the following statement in the command-line and press Enter key.
DIR /B /A:D / S [UNC Path] > [File Name]
– /B -Bare format (no heading, file sizes or summary)
– /A:D -Folder file attributes
– /S -Include all subfolders
– [UNC Path] -The path, which you want to get all the folders and subfolders
– [File Name] -A text file name to store the folder details
So our command is looks like this, I have used a text file (FolderLists.txt, which is located in C: drive) to store the details.
DIR /b /A:D /S \\ServerName\doccenter\Administration\StepBiStep > c:\FolderLists.txt
Step 3: It will take few minutes to generate the list. You can open in a Notepad and see..!.
That’s all guys, enjoy! I do welcome your comments. Please leave them here! 🙂
The type or namespace name ‘SharePoint’ does not exist in the namespace ‘Microsoft’ (are you missing an assembly reference?) – SharePoint 2010 Client Object Model dlls
When I started using the Client Object model (Client OM) in SharePoint 2010, I have got this simple error and I just want to share with you in this blog. Following was my develpment environment.
- Windows 7, 64 bit
- Console Application Visual Studio 2010
- Added Client Object Model references (Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.dll & Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.Runtime.dll) to the solution
After setting up all the above, I was trying to add the client reference to the code ‘using Microsoft.SharePoint.Client;‘and then I have got the following error and warnings 🙂
The text format of error is:
"The type or namespace name 'SharePoint' does not exist in the namespace 'Microsoft' (are you missing an assembly reference?)"
It’s an obvious error message and the reason of this error is:
SharePoint 2010 does not support .Net 4.0 in default and Visual Studio 2010 default framework is .Net 4.0.
Here are the simple steps to fix this:
Step 1: Right click on the project –> Properties
Step 2: Change the Target framework –> .Net Framework 3.5
Step 3: Warning message will be popping up, click Yes.
That’s all. Happy Coding..!
Please Note: If you use Windows Application then you will be getting an other error message! 😦 To solve this issue just click here.
This workbook cannot be opened because it is not stored in an Excel Services Application trusted location – SharePoint 2010
Posted by Rajanihanth in Excel Services, SharePoint 2010 on June 28, 2012
One of my colleagues sent me an email saying that he is getting this error (see below) whenever he tried to open an excel workbook. I just clicked the same file in the same location and I am able to open it. 🙂
But when I click on the excel file drop down –> View in Browser then I also got the same error.
The text format of the error is:
This workbook cannot be opened because it is not stored in an Excel Services Application trusted location. To create an Excel Services Application trusted location, contact your system administrator.
According to the error message, obviously we need to add the document library path to Trusted File Locations in the Central Administration. So we will see the steps here.
Step 1: Go to Central Administration –> Manage service applications under Application Management
Step 2: Then click on the Excel Services Application
Step 3: Click on the Trusted File Locations
Step 4: Just click Add Trusted File Location under Excel Services Application
Step 5: Add the document library url (OR file location) on the Address box and check the Children trusted check box –> Click ok
Please note: Don’t use like http://server:1010/documentlibrary1/forms/default.aspx instead of http://server:1010/documentlibrary1
If you use SSL (Secure Sockets Layer)/HTTPS connections, just add https:// on the address.
If you want to read more about this just click here. The similar problem in SharePoint 2007 also, you can find the solution in my previous post.
After completing this configuration, you might get the “The workbook cannot be opened” error, if you want to get the solution just read here. 🙂
Posted by Rajanihanth in SharePoint 2007, SharePoint 2010, Webpart on June 19, 2012
Recently we have migrated our SharePoint 2007 application to SharePoint 2010 and we also had manually configured few web parts in the new environment. Most of the web parts were working perfectly like sharepoint 2007 but one content editor web part which shows the weather forecast had some wired repeating behavior! 😦
I have created the CEWP in 2010 and paste the source code in to the editor.
and Publish the page, It is working fine no? but not really..!
Whenever I edit the page, the web part is duplicating the weather widget like this!
Step 1: Open a Notepad and paste the source code
Step 2: Upload the txt file into SharePoint
Step 3: Get the url path of the txt file and paste it on the content link property of the content editor pane on the right side and click ok.
That’s all. No duplication probs any more. Happy Migrating..!
