SharePoint 2010 Lookup Column in Document Information Panel

So came across a scenario this week where I needed to display a lookup column from a SharePoint 2010 document library in the Document Information Panel in Word and allow access to the object via Quick Parts and not Custom Document Properties.  I created the columns and associated them with the SharePoint List/Content Types and they were available in the DIP.  Easy enough. Not quite, as mentioned in this blog post from… Read More »SharePoint 2010 Lookup Column in Document Information Panel

Coexistence of Exchange 2003 and 2010

I give full credit for finally getting this to work to this Blog.  In my test environment I have an Exchange 2003 server, an Exchange 2010 CAS/Hub Transport, and an Exchange 2010 DB server.

Multiple Login Prompts when Logging into SharePoint from Vista or Windows 7

I have finally been able to put this issue at rest. It is actually a rather simple fix. On the client machine the MOSS url needs to be added to local intranet security settings in IE. At least each subdomain that will be accessed. The easier way would be to add http://*.domain.com. The second piece is a registry modification. The issue occurs because of the way Vista and 7 handle… Read More »Multiple Login Prompts when Logging into SharePoint from Vista or Windows 7
