comment Can a SharePoint Document library be mounted like a traditional drive?
My XP session is limited ... I don't have that "Map Drive option" ... is a work machine in a managed environment. Oh well.

comment Open txt files in document library in an editor (notepad)
Were you able to solve the "open with Notepad" issue by adding the document library as a network location? When I add a SharePoint site to my network location I still have the same issue: can't open non-MS Office documents.

comment Get value from drop down using jQuery (lookup column)
@DavePaylor - I am using 2007, maybe that's the difference? It generates a strange input field with lookups of more than 20 items that has a hidden input field that manages the value changes via javascript. Or something.

comment Get value from drop down using jQuery (lookup column)
So - that doesn't work for me. If I do $("#my_lookup_input_id").val() I get the original value but if I do $("#my_lookup_input_id option:selected").val() I get undefined. (same for just :selected).

@andrew.petersen15 - it is rendered as an input tag.

comment Design Workflow that Emails People in Assigned To (Except for Created By)
Hi and thanks! This gets me close to the answer but not the last part: if I create a task and assign myself plus three other people, the three other people would get an email (but I would not) ... I am beginning to think it may not be possible to do in SPD2007.

comment Design Workflow that Emails People in Assigned To (Except for Created By)
So - with this, I am able to email the folks who are in the AssignedTo column. However, my questions is, that I want to email those folks in AssignedTo who are not the Current Item:Created By. That is, I don't want to email myself when I assign myself a task. I only want to email the other people I may have assigned.

comment Design Workflow that Emails People in Assigned To (Except for Created By)
Thanks for your suggestion, but I am having trouble following the logic/approach. Where do you get "Workflow Context" optoin? I don't see that one ... are you on SPD 2007?

SharePoint Designer for 2007 (although I heard they will upgrade to 2010 at some point).

comment Import Sharepoint List into Excel Using VBA Only
You may have a type in the LISTNAME or VIEWNAME or SERVER variables; I am using this on Excel 2007 (and 2003) without an issue.

comment Update List from Excel using VBA
This method of syncing works for me; I have Excel 2007 at work which causes issues when I try to save all this but I am still trying to work around it.

comment Import Sharepoint List into Excel Using VBA Only
Thanks for the suggestion - I finally found a way via Google. Took a while to track it down and get it to work. Am not that savvy in VBA. Thanks

comment Suggestions for implementing relationships between two lists
This is an interesting idea - I tried playing with it but it will take a little work on my part to understand it fully. Will definitely be looking into it, however.

comment Suggestions for implementing relationships between two lists
We are running Sharepoint 2003 ... which, the system admin tells me, doesn't include this web part. Sigh.

Thanks for this - I am going to head off and investigate your suggestion and see if it fits the bill. I like simple.

comment How do I use “Approval Status” in a Calculated Field
That's not a bad idea - if there isn't a solution to the calculated field quandary I am going to have to think outside the box.

comment How do I use “Approval Status” in a Calculated Field
I am not sure where to find its type -- it is added by the Workflow (Approval Workflow). It doesn't show up in my list of Columns ...

comment How do I find/replace text in a default value's calculated field?
I don't have access to SharePoint designer - would have to talk with IS to get that implemented ... but, I appreciate your insight on the REPLACE function. I'm sure to need that soon. Thanks!

comment How do I find/replace text in a default value's calculated field?
That SPServices looks interesting but is probably a little more intense than what I was looking for ... anyhow, I was able to use this =RIGHT(Me,LEN(Me)-14) and it is working great (or as good as I can hope without really getting into it). Thanks.
