The “Site Content and Structure” reports are a great way of finding files which are pending approval or checked out but I just realised you can create your own reports.
If you have never seen these reports before:
Go to site settings –> Site Administration –> Content and structure
But you can create you own reports by going to “View all site content”
Under lists –> Content and Structure Reports
Here you can see all the reports available from C & S as well as the CAML that makes these reports.

SharePoint Solutions offers quality hands-on classroom-based InfoPath training.
Learn the ins and outs of creating digital forms that your users won’t mind using.
Four days is all it takes to master digital form creation in InfoPath 2010, and to learn the basics of routing those forms through common business processes using SharePoint 2010 workflow, through our new course, InfoPath 2010 and SharePoint Server 2010 No-Code Workflow Deep Dive (Intermediate).
In this instructor-led 4-day “deep dive” course, you’ll learn:
- To understand forms as a primary driver of business processes
- To design digital forms that work – asking the right questions the right way
- To understand the varied audiences for your forms and the data they need
- A framework for determining what questions your form needs
- Form layout and design best practices
- What controls are available for InfoPath forms and how they work
- How to create data connections to receive data from external sources
and much, much more.
In addition, you’ll learn to use SharePoint Designer 2010 to create powerful SharePoint workflows to automate the routing of those InfoPath forms through common business processes. You’ll discover:
- The different types of workflows you can create and when to use them
- Item events which trigger workflow
- Steps, actions and conditions: the building blocks of workflow design
- Else-if conditional branching and (MS) Boolean logic
- How to test and debug your workflows
and so much more.
Familiarity with the basics of SharePoint 2010 is required, but no previous experience with InfoPath 2010 or SharePoint Designer 2010 is necessary.

I had this error today creating an External Content Type for Business Connectivity Services (BCS) in Visual Studio 2010. I had to get help resolving it so I wanted to share the resolution.
Error occurred in deployment step ‘Add Solution’: The default web application could not be determined. Set the SiteUrl property in feature BdcModelProject2_Feature1 to the URL of the desired site and retry activation.
Parameter name: properties
You can resolve this by editing the Feature1.feature file in Visual Studio 2010. Open the template and add a line to tell them what your web application is. Mine is called http://intranet.contoso.com
Add this line: <Property Key=”SiteUrl” Value=”http://intranet.contoso.com/” />
So the full template now looks like this:
<?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”utf-8″ ?>
<Property Key=”GloballyAvailable” Value=”true” />
<Property Key=”SiteUrl” Value=”http://intranet.contoso.com/” />

We completed and published the SharePoint VSeWSS Import tool. This tool is an add-in to Visual Studio 2010 and it adds a new SharePoint project template for importing a VSeWSS project.
VSeWSS or the Visual Studio 2008 extensions for Windows SharePoint Services are the Microsoft tools for creating SharePoint 2007 projects on Visual Studio 2008. In Visual Studio 2010 we have built in tools for creating SharePoint 2010 projects. This import tool takes a VSeWSS project that is targetted at SharePoint 2007 and migrates it to Visual Studio 2010 where it is targetted at SharePoint 2010.
The import tool is distributed as source code so you will need to compile it before using it. There’s a batch file provided for this and you just need Visual Studio 2010 installed and to run the batch file.
The import tool works at the project level, not the solution level. So if you have a solution with multiple projects you will need to import them one by one and get them all going.

I have some external references to a Sharepoint list. There are certain sheets that have these connections that must be refreshed on the press of a button.
How can I only refresh certain sheets?! Please help
Can I refresh the sheets one at a time in the command…?
Something like ActiveWorkbook.Refresh.Sheets(“SheetA”) ???
I’m creating a button to refresh specific worksheets and their connections. So it could be multiple lines of code to refresh one worksheet. Please help!
Given that the only available commands are either
it seems you can’t directly.
Reading around it looks like you can’t refresh when sheets are protected.
It may be a lot of hassle, but I suppose you could have each sheet linked to a separate workbook and you only refresh those you want to refresh.

Minutes are vital to the success of meetings. Attendees rely on them for information they may have missed and they serve as an essential communications tool for non-participants. In addition, the action points highlighted in minutes act as a timely reminder for the whole organization. Minute-taking is such a crucial part of business management meetings but there is a common misconception that all secretaries and administrators can simply take minutes.
Taking minutes involves listening skills, the ability to absorb information and to summarize it simultaneously. The minute-taker is one of the most important and powerful people in a meeting. Although the tasks can be daunting, it is an opportunity to develop knowledge, broaden horizons and build credibility within the organization.
Now in its second edition, Taking Minutes of Meetings is an accessible reference guide following the whole meeting cycle. Starting with organising a meeting, it goes on to give reliable, hands-on advice about the sections of a meeting; the agenda; personal preparation; taking notes; accuracy; structuring notes; writing up the minutes and recording decisions and actions. Aimed at anyone new to taking minutes and professionals looking to brush up their technique.
