    Great Blog.
    Suggestion: Why don’t you add search or tag cloud in your blog, that will be very helpful for the readers. :)

    It seems as though the IF statments aren’t saved when using the ZIP method you had described to transfer a workflow…

    Any suggestions or known issues?

    Hi ikarstein,

    Really a nice blog! and very useful topics.
    This gave me a big help.

    But actually I looking for a way to make a custom form (New, Edit, Display) for a Sharepoint List, and I need some ‘code behind’. Do you have something to tell me about this ? could you help me doing it with the best practices of SP ?

    Thanks in advance.

      Hi NJO!

      Thanks for your comment.

      Before writing lots of text… Have you seen my post about creating SharePoint List Forms? I have written them in the last three months, I think.

      If it’s not what you need please post again.

      Kind regards

    Hi, nice blog. If you could answer my question it would be nice.

    I managed to do as described on this page ..

    But when i open document with Office Word, external fields in document options bar are “gray” – i can’t edit this fields. This probably is not supported ? or is just some permision problem ? I really need this feature – opening document in Office Word and chooseing external data(by selecting it ..), and then populates the document with selected. I am planing to have couple of document types which are specificly defined with Word Quick Parts.

    Thank you for answering.

      I’ve send you an e-mail. You can send me details information about your problem. May be you reproduce your steps while using the Windows 7/Vists/Server 2008/R2 native tool “PSR.EXE”. Just start it in Windows Start menu, record your actions and mail the resulting ZIP file to me.
