Sorry to break your tumbleweed record, but did you ever find an answer to this? I am experiencing the same problem.

comment Helping to prevent Webpart Unable to Display
Sure thing. Pages, Lists, etc. in a site come from a template (Team Site, Blank Site). SharePoint uses the template info when showing "ghosted" or unmodified pages. If you customize a page (like adding a new Web Part Zone), your page is "unghosted" and SharePoint has to store your customization as additional info in the database. All this custom information can increase your database size over time, so it is better not to customize a page for no reason. You can click "Reset to site definition" under Site Settings to get rid of customizations. See also here: t.co/QbQT9xBKZD

comment Cannot add aspx file to root folder
I agree with Derek, create a document library and upload the .aspx file to that library. You then have two options: Either grant users Add rights to that library, or wrap that section of code in elevated permissions code, and make the library read-only.

comment Needed help to build caml Query with multiple <And>
You are saying "wrong result". If the CAML query is not properly formatted (e.g., <And> tag in the wrong place) then you should get an error. If you don't get an error, what exactly is the wrong result?

comment comparing values of two columns in sharepoint 2007 list
Why is it necessary to have two columns? You can build a view to only show results when "Number of Patents" = 0.

comment How to apply CAML query on the Calculated Column of the list?
I have the same problem with no results. This points me in the right direction, I think, but my query still isn't returning any results.

comment Filter List for DateTime using CAML against Calculated Field
Still not working. I think it has something to do with MaxDate being a calculated field. I am testing against another calculated field, that simply returns '1' instead of a DateTime, to leave the DateTime element out.

comment Retrieve only the fields shown in userdisp.aspx from User Information List
The solution I found also applies to getting the correct ViewFields for any list, it seems SPView.ViewFields does NOT reflect the fields that are defined in the browser, I am not sure why. The workaround is to define the local SPWeb object as such: SPWeb objWeb = SPContext.Current.Site.OpenWeb(SPContext.Current.Web.ServerRelativeUrl).
