Hi,

I have a Sharepoint connection configured and I want to update a custom list item using the Update list item task.
In the Litem item Id (full path) field, you can select the item using the Sharepoint object browser button.

If I browse to the correct list and item I see in the browser: [SITE1]/[SITE2]//Lists/[LISTNAME]/[ID_.000]

When I double click the right item I see in the undelying text field this as result: /[SITE1]/[SITE2][LISTNAME]/[ID]
If you refresh the fields it gives you an error:
Unhandled error occured while trying to refresh, error: The list \[SITE1]\[SITE2][LISTNAME] doesn't exsist on the site with the URL http://[SERVER]/[SITE1]/[SITE2].

To make it work change the List item Id (full path) to: [LISTNAME]/[ID]

Something to fix in a next rellease.

Regards,
Erik

I think this is related to how you have defined the host address. Some users use site path in host address and some not.

Hi Henrik,

Isn't this something VC should handle, as you provide the popup to select an item.

If you setup the connection to a subsite of a subsite http://[SERVER]/[SITE1]/[SITE2] and use the browse method, it failes. Also there is a missing a slash between the site and the listname. Looks like it removed the /Lists/ part out of the path.
The label says: (full path) .. but that's not true, it's relative to the connection... and you have to dismiss the 'Lists' in the path.

I might be overeacting here a bit (sorry) but the browser gives more lists to select than you can use in the task. You can select the masterpages list (/_catalogs/..) but you can not access them in the task by changing the path manually as I did in my 1st post. The list must be in the /Lists/ folder I believe.

For real Lists items this task works, the browser should not show more to choose from than needed and the selection of the right item should give a right path in the text field.
