I'm trying to access the documents in a specific folder in a SharePoint document library. the library has multiple folders but I do know the name of the folder.

here is an example of the file tree (I want to access al the files inside the Folder_4:

  • MyDocLib
    • document_Acorn.pdf
    • document_ApplePie.pdf
    • Folder_AppleTypes
      • document_Gala.pdf
      • document_HoneyCrisp.pdf
      • document_PinkLady.pdf
      • document_Jonathan.pdf
    • document_Mango.pdf
    • Folder_OrangeTypes
    • document_Watermellon.pdf

I have this CAML query which will get me the folder but when I try Recursive or RecursiveAll I can never get more than just the folder to show up in the query. I believe I'm doing something wrong in the following query.

var camlQuery2 = "<View Scope='Recursive'>" + 
            "<Query>" + 
                "<OrderBy>" + 
                    "<FieldRef Name='Title' Ascending='True' />" +
                "</OrderBy>" + 
                "<Where>" + 
                    "<Eq>" + 
                        "<FieldRef Name='Title'/>" + 
                        "<Value Type='Text'>" +
                            "AppleTypes" + 
                        "</Value>" + 
                    "</Eq>" + 
                "</Where>" + 
            "</Query>" + 
        "</View>";

you should set camlQuery.FolderServerRelativeUrl = folder serverRelativeUrl CamlQuery camlQuery = new CamlQuery(); camlQuery.ViewXml = @" "; camlQuery.FolderServerRelativeUrl = folder.ServerRelativeUrl;

         ListItemCollection listItems = list.GetItems(camlQuery);

         clientContext.Load(listItems);
         clientContext.ExecuteQuery();

I found an answer that requires making another query. I change "Recursive" to "RecursiveAll" which will give me the folder I am wanting.

var camlQuery1 = "<View Scope='RecursiveAll'>" + 
        "<Query>" + 
            "<OrderBy>" + 
                "<FieldRef Name='Title' Ascending='True' />" +
            "</OrderBy>" + 
            "<Where>" + 
                "<Eq>" + 
                    "<FieldRef Name='Title'/>" + 
                    "<Value Type='Text'>" +
                        "AppleTypes" + 
                    "</Value>" + 
                "</Eq>" + 
            "</Where>" + 
        "</Query>" + 
    "</View>";

From that I will extract the "UniqueId" then I use that Id in a query to get all items with the "ParentUniqueId" that match the UniqueID.

var camlQuery2 = "<View Scope='Recursive'>" + 
        "<Query>" + 
            "<OrderBy>" + 
                "<FieldRef Name='Title' Ascending='True' />" +
            "</OrderBy>" + 
            "<Where>" + 
                "<Eq>" + 
                    "<FieldRef Name='ParentUniqueId'/>" + 
                    "<Value Type='Text'>" +
                        "{A1P2P3L4-E5T6-Y7P8-E9S0-1UNI2QUE3ID4}" + 
                    "</Value>" + 
                "</Eq>" + 
            "</Where>" + 
        "</Query>" + 
    "</View>";

This will give only the items inside the folder except other subfolders.
