CAML Designer

The one that works is this URL: http://camldesigner.blob.core.windows.net/offlinepackage/CamlDesigner2013.zip

The link comes from Karine Bosch's Blog. CAML Designer is the successor of CAML Builder, and from experience I can tell you this tool is much better and accurate. I've tried the both.

Edit: Looks like the CAML Designer now is a subscription application, but it is present on GitHub. https://github.com/chrisdee/Tools/tree/master/SharePoint/CamlDesigner

CAML Builder

But if you want the previous tool, the page to turn to is http://www.u2u.be/Software where you have the download at http://www.u2u.be/Downloads/U2U.SharePoint.CQB2010.zip which contains the wsp.

The CamlBuilderSetup.msi-file is located here: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B1H-kV-5gwStUlF1OEdjWWJZNXc/edit?pli=1

  • Do you have the older version of U2U CAML query designer. I am trying to use this query designer for SharePoint2003 which this version does not allows me to do. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

I have recently created CAML Query designer based on my own requirements and I am giving that as an utility for free. Hope this will help SharePoint developers in better way.
