comment How to create a Sharepoint list that can be used by both an Access desktop application and an Access web app
Thanks for the info, that will help a lot. re:MVP I am not suggesting you use any particular language, I am suggesting that you build your interface at the CSOM/JSOM level for the MS Access connection. If you can't do it with the Web App you shouldn't do it with Access. This is not a general principle, but the way to accomplish your specific project goals. One way to have the interface work from both Access and Web App is to architect the solution with the limit of the commonality of the 2 clients.

comment How to create a Sharepoint list that can be used by both an Access desktop application and an Access web app
Instead of trying to use different Models in a MVC solution, try moving your data connection to the controller. Both access and Web App should be able to use web services to make the calls. Build and deploy the list as your model, them use SharePoint Web Services as your view and use your app and access as your controller. Instead of using the built-in SP interface of Access, switch to use web services as a consumer and you will get there. If you want a demo, I will need some specific info about the composition of your data and versions of your apps.

comment SharePoint 2010 List Validation not working as expected for DataFormWebPart
You could also use a query of the list to check for uniqueness in the form controls as an alternative workaround.

comment Use REST odata webservice to update a project in Project server
I wound up pushing that piece to the v2. So I only have theory on this. I think you can update the value of the custom field with the ID number of the list option you wish to set. I would try the updateNumberProperty action first. Then I would try the updateGuidProperty action second (using guid of the selected item instead of ID). Please note that I have not done POC, so I am not certain, but that is where I would start.

comment JSOM working in Chrome but not IE
There are several places where browsers are known to function differently. It is not entirely uncommon to run into this problem. something as simple as parsing regex can cause a failure like this. using the debugger to step through the code is a reasonable way to check the values in your variables to see if they are what you expect. Also your code has a few nice breakpoints where you could split the code in a divide and conquer strategy.

Have you customized the alerts and/or the alert template? Do you have SP Health Analyzer warnings? What is your server configuration? Other than restarting the timer service what else have you tried? social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/…

comment Turn off ability to use REST API
If you read through the verbose logs you will see that SharePoint uses web services to communicate with itself extensively. I recommend doing the homework to identify and block only what you want to block. If you block everything you will likely reduce your security and support-ability.

comment Filters on a large list exceeding throttle limit
I think you are looking for a chorus of workarounds then. When the quick easy methods will not work, and you are up against a hard threshold, it is time to look at more complex/more performant methods.*What about using web parts with connections. Create a page with a filtered web part and use the column values in a filter web part attached to it. *What about a page with relative javascript links to get the vales to filter by? *If you were writing this query by hand you would not do a select distinct on 5000 rows of values in a linked list, you would just go get the linked list, then query
