  • Filter documentlist in fileopen/filesave dialog in Word/Excel Dribbel

    When opening a document from a documentlibrary in Word/Excel/Outlook the FileOpen Dialog shows all the files in the document library.

    I have a lot of documents in there, with metedata in columns. How do i show those extra columns (in the fileopen/save dialogs), and how do i enable filtering of those columns?

    Just finding my file based on only the filename is hard, using the metadata would be a great improvement.

  • I dont think you can filter when opening files in SharePoint 2007. This in fact one of the new features in SharePoint 2010, where you can use your taxonomy and meta data filtering to filter amongst large amounts of data.

    You should be able to filter on sub-folders though if that is a help.

  • . Note that this is just opening the Excel file without checking it out. Problem: Once in a while, and for no reason I can figure out, a user will click the button and the spreadsheet will be returned... if they just created the document (i.e., they clicked the button, the folder didn't exist, and so it creates the folder and copies the new Excel file into it). Sometimes they were working on it earlier... is causing this behavior? I can change the code to avoid it if I can figure out why it is happening. Is there any way through the SharePoint UI or APIs to "release" the document so that the original
