Heads up: Lookup column and multiple values

There is a new setting when using a lookup column, "Allow multiple values". This means that you can choose several values from the lookup column. Great! But you can use the column in views for sorting or grouping, but it can be used for filter. A drawback ofcourse. Uncheck "Allow mulitple values" and it can be used for sorting and grouping again. The same behaviour goes for column "Choice" when using "Checkboxes"

Introduction to 'SharePoint Enterprise Search'

A good introduction to the index engine, ifilters and the query interface. I have always considered the search engine the one component that is really worth the license cost of SPPS 2003 and with the improvments made in MOSS (change log crawling, continouse propagation) it will enable more accurate search results and better administration.


If you are using Windows Desktop Search, then check out this tip to enable integration to the Search Center: http://markharrison.co.uk/blog/2006/10/sharepoint-search-directly-from.htm

Troubleshooting Explorer View

When a user can not use the "Explorer View" (Cannot find 'file://\\server\site\doclib. Make sure the path or Internet address is correct.) in a document library in Sharepoint the first thing to check is the "WebClient" service. It needs to be started to be able to use the "Explorer View".

Microsoft has also released a whitepaper for troublehooting the Explorer View
