Working with Ted Pattison, a SharePoint MVP and owner of the Ted Pattison Group, the Item-Level Auditing source-code and white paper was released on Tuesday to help you get started building your own custom compliance solutions on Office 2007. Here's a summary of what you get:
Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 provides auditing by default but it does not give the ability for a non-administrator to view the auditing history of a specific document or item in a list. This code sample shows a developer how to extend this auditing functionality to create an item-level auditing view in three different ways: using a custom SharePoint list, through the Excel client, and by manipulating the open XML file format to display auditing history using Excel Services on an application page. It is accompanied by a thorough white paper describing the code as well as a setup document.
