In SharePoint 2010, we have the List View Threshold, which defaults to 5,000, and:
Specifies the maximum number of list or library items that a database operation, such as a query, can process at the same time outside the daily time window set by the administrator during which queries are unrestricted.
So, I'm looking to determine the options for querying a document library that will have more items than the threshold limit.
Ignoring the 'unrestricted' dailty time window, will the threshold be triggered under the following scenarios on a document library with more than 5,000 items?
