While trying to access to ListData.svc service in a SharePoint 2010 sub site I was getting authentication prompt to enter credentials again and again. I was using a SharePoint Farm administrator account so was sure that permission is not the cause of this problem. So I started SharePoint Manager, browsed to the sub site and saw that there was a problem in a feature
Afterwards I checked in the list nodes of the same site to see which lists were included in this missing feature, after clicking on one of the lists I got the following error which hinted that this list was the one included in the feature.
Further in the properties window there was an error message in the content type field
I deleted this orphaned lists and the service worked fine then.
I hope you found this post helpful. Thanks

Few days back I was creating a report using SharePoint 2010 list as data source in Report Builder 3. The list I was using had the following lookup columns:
- StartDate (DateTime Column)
- FinishDate (DateTime Column)
- Budget (Number)
Now when I tried to change the datetime and number formatting, I noticed formatting was not being applied.
After spending some time I found out that in order to apply number and datetime formatting to lookup columns, they must be converted to a proper data type. So instead of binding field directly to a column, I used the following expressions to convert these lookup columns in proper data types
The complete list of conversion functions can be found under Common functions and then Conversion. In my case for dates I used CDate(FieldName) and for number column I used CInt(FieldName)
Let’s assume we’ve to create a new SharePoint 2010 server so we install SharePoint 2010 and then start the configuration wizard. After we’re through with the configuration wizard, most probably when we’ll start SQL Server Management Studio we’ll see something like the following
This type of inconsistent naming can be very unpleasant and might not be very handy for our DBAs, wouldn’t it be better if we’d something like
So what we do. We can run some powershell scripts to manually configure our Farm and install services (For more details, please visit http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc262839.aspx#section6)
Another good alternate is that we use AutoSPInstaller which can automate the process of installing (including downloading and installation of pre- requisites) and configuring SharePoint 2010 based on inputs we provide in an xml file. There is an editor available to edit scripts for AutoSPInstaller as well called AutoSPInstallerGUI

We can see that there is an inline img tag inside an anchor tag so if we set the img tag display’s to none and specify background image for the anchor we can easily change icon so let’s try this out. To apply the following CSS, we’ll have to create a CSS in Style Library in which we’ll override default styling and specify it as an alternate CSS in Master page site settings.
padding:0px 3px 0px 3px;
background-position: top left;

Changing the language list on Advance search page is very simple, just follow these steps.
Step 1: Go to Advance page, site actions and then edit page.
Step 2: Now edit advance search box web part and collapse properties section.
Step 3: Copy xml from properties textbox and paste it in any xml editor like Visual Studio so we can modify it easily
Step 4: Search for languages tag and remove any language that is not necessary from the list. For example let’s remove all languages except English from the list, now it should look like
<Language LangRef="en" />
Step 5: To add another language, just add another Language element with LangRef attribute. Values for LangRef attribute will LangID from the LangDefs element. For example if we want to add Arabic then our Languages element would look like
Step 6: Copy the entire xml and paste it in properties textbox in advance search box web parts (Where we initially copied the xml from) and save the page.
That’s it we are done.
