comment Is there in sharepoint a Discussion board with State?
Just idle musings. You could create a "New Question" content type using Discussion as the parent and have that be the default "New Item" on the board. For New Question, State defaults to Open and is hidden (so your asker doesn't see the State field at all). Then, a workflow kicks off on item creation to switch it from New Question to the stock Discussion content type. State is now visible and workable. You could have a second workflow that runs on item creation that nags your answering users once a week to update the status of open questions.

You can get more fancy than that with an additional content type and a workflow. Maybe a content type called New Question that's for your asking user that doesn't display the State field. A workflow to flip the content type to Working Question or something, which does reveal the state field. Then maybe a workflow that sends out an email to your answering users periodically to prompt them to flip the state field, when appropriate, to closed or whatever.

comment Is the sharepoint server the application server
Ah. Ok. You'd install it on what you're calling your application server. Fair warning: I'm on the development side of the house, not the admin side; but I believe that "database server" is actually SQL, not SharePoint, in terms of product.

You don't need custom coding. Just add the field to the out-of-the box Discussion content type.

comment Workflow copying a list item from one site to another site
What version/edition of SharePoint are you using? How much access do you have (i.e., site admin, site collection admin, farm admin, etc.)? How comfortable are you with coded solutions?

comment Extremely complicated XSLT for a huge list of information
Thank you, @JanJoukeTjalsma for your suggestion, I'm definitely going to try that... so, fair warning, this is now academic, as the group who initially requested I do this insane thing has decided that the number derived by the calculation is not actually useful to them. Thank you, everyone, for your suggestions! If I can get this to work, however, I'll post a solution.

I think I've explained that a bit better? Let me know if I can clarify more.

Added some clarification, cut down on words. Fixed wonky formatting, I hope.

Oh, no, the excel is there just to give you a sense of the structure of the list without breaking all of the PCI compliance and non-disclosure agreements I've signed. The data sits in a list. In answer to your question about what I'm trying to do, it'd be to output a list of the product groups with that penetration percentage I defined in my original post.

comment Document set welcome page image
You'd have to either manually or programmatically change them, but sure. If you're asking if there's a way for a single document set content type to use a different image in that webpart based on some metadata selection, no, I don't think that's possible.
