comment Get unique values from Parent List in Dropdown List SPServices
I think it's a formatting issue. I notice in Frederik's code he uses a javascript function called escape around the GUIDs. It may be this will help blogs.technet.com/b/sharepointcomic/archive/2008/12/09/…

comment How to delete a Task that is associated to an item and workflow that have been deleted
My next troubleshooting steps would be to first look at all of the events in the ULS occurring just before or after every call to $task.recycle() then, if that doesn't reveal the issue, get out a dissasembler and start walking through the sharepoint code to find the issue.

Have you checked the ULS Logs? There may be additional error information that could help in troubleshooting.

comment How can you move a document with its version history to a new library?
Thanks for the update @thantos. It's possible in the 4+ years since I posted this question that the functionality has been improved. Out of curiosity, what version and patch level did it work for you on? In January 2010, I was likely either using SharePoint 2007 SP2 or SharePoint 2010 RTM.

I'd suggest removing the fields in the datasheet view one by one until you've found the culprit.

comment Data Sheet view issues
The hotfix I referenced above addresses the "An unexpected error has occurred. Changes to your data cannot be saved." issue for SharePoint 2007. It should already be a part of 2010. Are the columns shown in both of your views the same?

Yes. I'm afraid that's what you get with an external list. If you'd like, you can add custom actions.

comment Is the Reporting Services Integration for SharePoint 2007 Really Worth the Effort?
The way this question is phrased makes it very subjective which isn't really supported by the community guidelines.

comment How to add the search box web part and search result web part to a page from using OM?
@MatthewMcDermott asks a great question. He is a master of using search web parts in SharePoint. In case it helps, I gave an answer to your stated question anyway. :)

comment How do I dynamically insert a web part onto a page using Sharepoint Designer 2010?
Not that I can think of off the top of my head. What kind of web part is it? Can it be done another way?

comment How to display only future events in Content Query Web Part?
Updated my answer for a calendar list. Created and Modified are in the filter list but not some other time and date fields. For example, the start date and end date fields of a calendar list are supported by the content query web part when you manual editing the .dwp and add the fields in as described on MSDN.
