Support custom field in Datasheet view

Oct 8, 2009 at 6:08 PM

To resolve temporary an issue about editing the advanced lookup in a datasheet view, you can do the following steps :

remark : It is a workaround and a final solution must be implemented because we modify a sharepoint file which could be changed in a Microsoft update.

Prerequisite : Be granted to access to the server file system. Know javascript

Mode opératoire :

Go the the folder c:\program files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS\1033

Copy the file INIT.JS to Init.old

Open the file INIT.JS and search "function RenderActiveX(str)"

Replace document.write(str) ; par document.write(str.replace("AdvancedLookupField", "Lookup")) ;

Save the file, Open IE and refresh the browser cache (CTRL + R)
