Why can’t I access the column in my SharePoint list programatically?

October 26, 2012 2 comments

The answer might be simple. The first time a column is created and you title it “Column1” the database records that. If you (or someone else) later changes the column title to “Column2” your application will break. Why? Because behind the scenes that column is still “Column1”

  • Finds the list “My Tasks”

Moving repeating table values to another list using a Visual Web Part in C#

October 12, 2012 Leave a comment

InfoPath 2010 repeating tables are useful and sometimes even essential to the project requirements. However, they carry with them some problems. For one thing when multiple values are entered into an InfoPath 2010 form all of the values become crammed into one SharePoint 2010 column. This will cause all kinds of problem down the road if you ever need to access that Info and/or filter it etc. So the following example shows how to move the repeating table values to a separate list where the values can be more efficiently managed.

  • I’ve created a Visual Studio 2010 visual web part that fires the code on page load
  • You must have a delimiter to separate the values. In this case I have used a ;
  • Do NOT add a ; to the last repeating table entry. If you do you will have and extra record in the new list.

How does it work? View the Video below:

If you add custom code to InfoPath 2010 form template you will need to publish the form as an “administrator-approved” form template. Publishing an administrator-approved template is not an intuitive process (in my humble opinion). So, I create a video that will give a step-by-step of how this is done.
