I have problem with sharepoint when I try to get all file in a specific url. I've try get files in url


It's work, but when want to get files in url


It returns error Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.ServerException: File Not Found.

This is the first time I work with sharepoint. I'm look forward to receive your help. Many thanks.

Here is my code:

var targetSiteURL = new Uri("https://mycompany.sharepoint.com/sites/Processing/");
ClientContext cxt = new ClientContext(targetSiteURL.GetLeftPart(UriPartial.Authority));
cxt.Credentials = new SharePointOnlineCredentials(login, securePassword);
var list = cxt.Web.GetList("/Shared%20Documents/Forms/AllItems.aspx?viewid=b59c189a-26e1-42ff-b0b8-0e5aefc93734&id=%2Fsites%2FProcessing%2FShared%20Documents%2FGeneral%2FApp2020");

var listItems = list.GetItems(new CamlQuery());
items => items.Include(
item => item.File));
this.lblMessage.Text = listItems.First().File.Name.ToString();

You should use

var list =cxt.Web.GetList("sites/Processing/Shared%20Documents")

To get the specific file:

File file = cxt.Web.GetFileByServerRelativeUrl("/sites/Processing/Shared%20Documents/test.doc");
  • It returns the same error :(

  • when I set var targetSiteURL = new Uri("https://mycompany.sharepoint.com"); and var list =cxt.Web.GetList("/Shared%20Documents") then it worked, but when I set var list =cxt.Web.GetList("/sites/Processing/Shared%20Documents") then it return file not found since that
