  • Blog Post: InfoPath: Adding a button to switch between views

    The ability to have multiple views of information and multiple uses for forms is one of the great features of InfoPath.

  • Blog Post: Redux: Excel tip: Split first name and last name into separate cells

    In response to my post on splitting names into multiple columns in Excel , someone (who listed themselves as "me") posted the following comment: very interesting, but there is a problem - when you split the names into two or three columns using this method and there are variations of first+last and first...
  • Blog Post: SharePoint Links Updated

    The SharePoint Links on the right nav of my blog have been updated. I've been remis, and there are lots of good bloggers out there.

  • Blog Post: Workflow on SharePoint

    I've had a number of people ask me about workflow on SharePoint, and while I've run across an article or post here or there, I didn't have a great place to point people to. However, on Lamont Harrington's blog I found a whole category of workflow posts . Here's the RSS feed .

  • Blog Post: Excel tip: Split first name and last name into separate cells

City, state and zip were also in a single column. I offered then to clean up the spreadsheet by splitting...
  • Blog Post: InfoPath Question: Easy way to specify order of forms to be merged?

    I'm thinking that the answer to this question is “No” because of an article I found on MSDN that said InfoPath gets the list of forms that were selected in the Merge Forms dialog box. More than one form can be selected, and forms are processed in an arbitrary order. but does anyone...
  • Blog Post: Web Part Deployment Best Practices?

    In articles on MSDN that talk about creating basic web parts , they talk about deployment by importing a .DWT. However, there is also an article on “ Using Wppackager to Package and Deploy Web Parts for Microsoft SharePoint Products and Technologies ” along with the Wppackager download ....

    Jan Tielens and Fons Sonnemans , names you're very familiar with if you're a SharePoint Wonk like me, created a very cool SmartPart WebPart : The SmartPart is a generic webpart that can contain an ASP.NET user control. Nothing new you would say, but the SmartPart can give your user control access...

  • Blog Post: Getting Things Done: Update

    Chris Sells pinged me today to ask about GTD. Actually, it was kind of funny... he sent me an email with the subject line “You've done this, what can you tell me?“ And the body was a link . That's it. When I first saw the subject line I thought it was spam, or even <gasp> porn spam...

    After reading in several blogs about David Allen and his book/process Getting Things Done , I decided to give it a try.

    I just noticed that MikeFitz has posted a bunch of slide decks from the EMEA SharePoint Products and Technologies Developer Tour on GotDotNet.com.
