Unable to create folder in SharePoint 2013 library

1-aspx_debug_error

This error, “Sorry, something went wrong. The aspx_debug attribute on the page directive is not allowed in this page” occurs when trying to create a folder in some types of document libraries, such as the Report Document Library used for SQL Server Reporting Services report documents in SharePoint 2013.

The error comes from some bad /Upload.aspx files that are used by SharePoint 2013.

identifying the upload file for a Report Document Library gives us this standard file path:

C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Web Server Extensions\15\TEMPLATE\FEATURES\ReportsAndDataListTemplates\ReportDocumentLibrary\Upload.aspx

The standard contents:

3-upload_aspxfile

By updating the contents with something that makes more sense we can get the folder creation feature to work again:

workingfilecontents

Do note that all page directives needs to go, and we need to update the UIVersion property from 15 to 4 otherwise we just get new exciting errors.

Migrating to TFS, Team Foundation Service

As part of the Easter holiday time abundance I am migrating some projects to the TFS service at http://tfs.visualstudio.com/. This is part of the evaluation to see if it works for some of the more complex scenarios we face when developing BI solutions.

Once a project is created the following message greets the creator:

“Your project is created and your team is going to absolutely love this.”

So at least we are off to a good start.

Visual Studio schema compare does not support the specified database

When doing a schema compare from a Visual Studio project to a database hosted in SQL Server the following error message appeared:

image

This error message appeared because I was using SQL Server 2012 in this specific development environment and hadn’t updated the SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT) to the correct version to support SQL Server 2012.

Solution: Upgrade SSDT for Visual Studio to the latest version and update the database project.

Steps

  1. Update SSDT
  2. Update the Data-Tier Application Framework
  3. Update the Project

 

Visual Studio 2010 (and 2012) Premium and Ultimate support comparison and synchronization of database schemas. this feature is described on MSDN here:

DocIcon link to item not working in SharePoint 2010

A client upgrade from SharePoint 2007 to SharePoint 2010 surfaced the following unexpected behavior.

When clicking a icon in a list the icon lo longer links to the list item. This was the default behavior in 2007 but is missing in 2010. Since the customer still uses the 2007 user interface everything looks the same and the functionality is just missing. Very confusing for everyone.

I found the following two approaches to work around the missing functionality:
