Data stored in a Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 list can be presented in more ways than a simple tabular layout. By using Microsoft Office SharePoint Designer 2007 and custom XSLT, you can present the same list data graphically—for example, as a bar graph. This Visual How To illustrates the steps for presenting list data as a bar graph through a Data View Web Part. The data source list used in this example is the standard task list that is stored in a Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 team site. The bars in the graph represent the total percentage of tasks for each status value. Start with a SharePoint task list that contains some sample data.
October 7, 2008 by padavis I was in need of a simple way to show some bar charts for list data in a SharePoint site. Actually the requirement was to create a page of dashboards based on various status fields that management could view at a glance.
Walk through a solution that solves the problem of displaying an arbitrary number of data items on the surface of a Microsoft Office Word 2007 document by using Open XML Formats and the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0. (6 printed pages) As part of a business solution, developers sometimes want to dynamically display repeating data items of an unknown number in a Microsoft Office Word 2007 document. Word 2007 does provide the ability to dynamically map data to the document surface by using the XML mapping feature of data-bound content controls mapped to custom XML parts. However, you can map a content control only to a single XML element in a custom XML part.
I haven’t seen much information on the web regarding how to automatically create Word documents in SharePoint and how to pass list item fields directly into a document. It’s fairly straightforward to get this working (certainly no code is required, just SharePoint designer) and the technique could be used to automate all manner of business processes. For example, you could create an ASPX page containing drop down fields and calculated fields that automatically creates a quotation document or you could have a form that captures all the details for a job vacancy that would create a standard looking job advert. In this exercise I will keep things simple and create an application that creates a certificate with an exam name, user name and pass mark passed into the Word documents from a list item.

Earlier this month I wrote that SharePoint developers working with the Content Query Web Part (CQWP) are provided a mechanism to extend the information available in the XSLT transformations . While exploring the CQWP even further I found out that you could create custom XSLT functions as well! Can you imagine the possibilities?
