Putting documents in a document library

  Asked By: Sophie    Date: Dec 27    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1031

We have SPS with document libraries. These libraries contain excel
files, that are automatically updated every night by a process on a
server, and in the morning copied manually to the document library.

Is there someone who knows a automated way to put files in a certain
document library without user intervention, and with all the necessay
stuff behind. I already trued to make the document library a share, and
the copy it into that share, but that doesn't keeps versions and

Not sure what you mean by "make the document  library a share" but you should be
able to do this via the Dav redirector. All that is needed is to be running
Windows Server 2003 or Windows XP with the "Web Client" service enabled and
running. Once this is setup, you can access any SPS or WSS document library  via
UNC paths. For example:


can be accessed via the UNC path

\\server\sites\somesite\Shared Documents\

For versions  to be kept, you need to make sure the doc lib itself has versioning
enabled - if that is done it doesn't matter what method you use to create/update
the documents.

I found the UNC way, but this didn't work for server 2000.

So I'm searching for another way, or if that doens,t exists, I will
schedule the creation of the files  on one server (the 2000 one) and the
copying on aother (a 2003 server).

Is not the coolest way of doing it but, if there is no other way, why

The other option would be to use a scriptable client that can speak WebDav or
FP-RPC directly like http://www.itlocation.com/en/software/prd47467,,.htm .
