May be you have tried to create a SQL Database Connection in SharePoint Designer 2010 and receive the message:
Server Error: An error occurred while retrieving the list of databases from (SQL Server): An authentication error occurred. Your logon information may be incorrectly entered, you may not have permission to access this data source, or the requested authentication method may not be supported. Contact the server administrator for more information.
Ok, lets find Administrator. The first thing dropped in my mind is, I am administrator, who i can contact then?
The solution is very easy.
Go to SQL – Right click the SQL-instance – Properties – Security – SQL server and Windows autentication mode – Ok – Right click again SQL instance – Restart – Yes -Yes.
Now lets find the Administrator?
Many people ask me about any sample of SharePoint web site live. Often it’s difficult to find some good examples related to what they ask. Here is a link show all SharePoint sites created and available on the net. On this page we can use different types of categories which we can use to figure out what kind of website we want to see. Not only categories, but also based on country and platform too…
Here is the solution: Go to the list or library –> Settings –> List Settings –> Advanced Settings –> Search
During create userProfile connection I got this message. I don’t know what kind of message was unable to process but it’s really sad to know that things going wrong way from SharePoint team after SP1, so on CU and even Hotfix not is good enough. May be much focus on SP2013 have placed 2010 on a wrong track. Well this solution worked fine for me.
- Stop UPSS (User Profile Sync Service)
- Click Start –> Run –> GPEdit.msc \ Computer Configuration \ Windows \ Security Settings \ Local policies \ Security Options \ “Network security: LDAP client signing requirements”, set the parameter value on “None”
- Run “gpupdate /force” without quotes on command prompt
- Restart UPSS
- Try again!
Branch logic in SharePoint gives us possibility to create multiple sets of questions and use more complex branching to guide people through your survey. In simple words it is survey jump to another question, regardless of the answer. When we create questions in survey, we can join questions together using section called “Branching logic”. In me example I will use same scenario where I want people to skip the questions based on their answers. In my example I create a survey list called “UseSP”.
- My first question is “Do you use SharePoint?” answer Yes/No.
- If Yes next question “What you like in SharePoint?
- If No next question “Why you don’t use SharePoint??”
Haven’t done anything else till now. Just created questions.
Now branch the question by clicking on question 1 using section “Branching Logic”.
Now go to the 2 question and choose the Content type rather. That will inherit the settings from question 1.
Now let’s take a survey.
My answer is “Yes” here.
If I in first question replay “No”. Next question is then like:
