Sharepoint 2010, Below is my CAML query used in javascript. I like to have the 1st FOLDER which is greater or equal to TODAY.

The doclib- view contains a column MeetingDate (type: datetime) which I fill in the date as below. e.g. yesterday it was 28/09/2015. I like to get the folder/row 28/09/2015 selected in my CAML query. But it always took 05/10/2015.

I deleted the 05/10/2015 folder then it took 12/10/2015. I also deleted this folder then it took 28/09/2015 which is good. then I recreated the 2 folders 05/10/15 and 12/10/2015 it kept taking the row/foler 28/09/2015 yesterday which is good.

today is 29/09/2015 when I run the code it takes 28/09/15, which is not good , because in my CAML query I use greather or Equal then...

So there is an issue which I can solve it and don't know what the problem is.

in otherwords it looks like caching and keeping. I deleted all my browsers cache tested on other browsers it's still not correct. I tried with order by in CAML without. change to TRUE/FALSE, with offsetdays, without offsetdays... none are giving other results.... always the same result.

EDIT: I only need 1 row back, the row with meetingdate which is greater than or equal to today's date. so when I run this script today (29/09/2015) it should give me 1 row which is 05/10/2015. Greater than Today and rowlimit =1.

Can someone advice?

e.g.

Name MeetingDate

Folder1 12/10/2015

Folder2 05/10/2015

Folder3 28/09/2015

Folder4 21/09/2015

    <View Scope="RecursiveAll">
  <Query>
    <Where>
      <And>
        <Eq>
          <FieldRef Name="FSObjType" />
          <Value Type="Integer">1</Value>
        </Eq>
        <Geq>
          <FieldRef Name="MeetingDate"/>
          <Value Type="DateTime">
            <Today OffsetDays="-1"/>
          </Value>
        </Geq>
      </And>
    </Where>
  </Query>
  <RowLimit>1</RowLimit>
  <OrderBy>
    <FieldRef Name="MeetingDate" Ascending ="FALSE"/>
  </OrderBy>
</View>

    var clientContext = new SP.ClientContext.get_current();
var oList = clientContext.get_web().get_lists().getByTitle('DocumentsLIB');
var camlQuery = new SP.CamlQuery();
camlQuery.set_viewXml('<View Scope="RecursiveAll"><Query><Where><And><Eq><FieldRef Name="FSObjType" /><Value Type="Integer">1</Value></Eq><Geq><FieldRef Name="MeetingDate"/><Value Type="DateTime"><Today OffsetDays=-1/></Value></Geq></And></Where></Query><RowLimit>1</RowLimit><OrderBy><FieldRef Name="MeetingDate" Ascending ="FALSE"/></OrderBy></View>');
this.collListItem = oList.getItems(camlQuery);
clientContext.load(collListItem);
clientContext.executeQueryAsync(Function.createDelegate(this, this.onQuerySucceeded), Function.createDelegate(this, this.onQueryFailed));

function onQuerySucceeded(sender, args) {
var listItemInfo = '';
var folderName = '';
var listItemEnumerator = collListItem.getEnumerator();

while (listItemEnumerator.moveNext()) {
    var oListItem = listItemEnumerator.get_current();
    folderName = oListItem.get_item('Title');
//    I always get 1 record back, which is good, but it's wrong;
}

var urlOfTheDocumentsMT = "http//myurlsite";
document.getElementById("current-documentsmt").href = urlOfTheDocumentsMT + folderName

  1. <Today OffsetDays="-1"/> Here you are saying OffsetDays="-1", which means yesterday. So your caml query will bring all items which is greater than equal to yesterday. You need to change it to : <Today/> .

  2. Secondly your <OrderBy> is not valid since it is outside <Query>. It should be inside the <Query>.

Below is the corrected query:

<View Scope="RecursiveAll">
  <Query>
    <Where>
      <And>
        <Eq>
          <FieldRef Name="FSObjType" />
          <Value Type="Integer">1</Value>
        </Eq>
        <Geq>
          <FieldRef Name="MeetingDate"/>
          <Value Type="DateTime">
            <Today/>
          </Value>
        </Geq>
      </And>
    </Where>
   <OrderBy>
    <FieldRef Name="MeetingDate" Ascending ="True"/>
  </OrderBy>
  </Query>
  <RowLimit>1</RowLimit>     
</View>
  • @ Unnie: thank you for the correction, when I run now it takes 05/10/2015 which is good... but I created a meetingdate folder with 03/10/2015 it should take this now, because this is more close by 29/09/2015 (today), but it still shows and take 05/10/2015. I did clear browser cached (IE/Chrome)... it takes 05/10/2015... which is wrong. – user3080110 Sep 29 '15 at 10:17

    @unnie---> It works... I changed the Ascending to TRUE and my tests are correct.. now... thank you so much... So my issue was the order by was outside the query... thanks thanks thanks. – user3080110 Sep 29 '15 at 10:25

You get only one row because you have

<RowLimit>1</RowLimit>

in your query

  • @ Leopold Lerch: yes that's fine... I only want 1 row... I do greater or equal than todays date. so I should get all rows, but then with <rowlimit>1 - I want only 1 row... in fact just get the row just before today.... ... btw: I only need 1 row... just the row which is greater than TODAY. but the issue: it takes wrong row. – user3080110 Sep 29 '15 at 10:04
