Microsoft Project Web Access Training – Part I


As we are currently in process of implementing Microsoft Project Server 2007 in our company.  I have to provide training to over 100 people who are working in different departments.  Training all these people individually could be a very painful job.  So I decided to go for an Innovation.  I decided to create CBT (Computer based training’s) for Microsoft Project Web Access 2007. 

This is the first part of the training.  This involves creating Activities and projects in Microsoft Project Web Access 2007.  These video can be downloaded from the links below.

Note: These files are two part RAR format which will convert to 1 AVI Format file.

Querying WSS Lookup Columns with CAML


PointBridge Weblogs > Blogs > Matt’s Blog > Posts > Querying WSS Lookup Columns with CAML

I spent way too long yesterday trying to get a CAML query that would allow me to query on a lookup field and figured I’d share.
<rant>
First, one thing I find very annoying about SharePoint is that if you have an invalid query, the call to the GetItems() method returns all rows. What?? How ’bout a friendly exception that I have an invalid query??
</rant>
So here was the solution: the CAML query should be formatted with a type attribute of Lookup in the Value tag and the text of that element should be the same value that you’d see in the SharePoint UI.
For example:
<Where>
    <Eq>
        <FieldRef Name="GiftsForMom" />
        <Value Type="Lookup">Flowers</Value>
    </Eq>
</Where>

Looking at it now, this is reasonably straightforward. However, it didn’t click in my development-damaged brain, as the value you see in a lookup field when you inspect it in the debugger is something like 4;#Gift Types.

When constructing CAML queries you must use internal names by this wonderful exception:

Exception caught Microsoft.SharePoint.SPException: One or more field types are not installed properly. Go to the list settings page to delete these fields. —>
 System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException (0x81020014): One or more field types are not installed properly. Go to the list settings page to delete these fields.
