  • Data Types of Managed Properties in Search Results

    The other day, I was trying to work some XSLT magic with my CoreResultsWebPart. What I was trying to do is pass an integer value in a search query (that went against a BDC application definition) in a link to a page. This should be a simple task, but when I added the field to my template, it displayed...

  • Exposing data from the BDC as a DataTable

    Recently, I wanted to bind some data from the BDC to an ASP.NET control (i.e. a GridView, ListView, or DropDownList). For what I needed a Business Data List web part just wouldn't cut it, so I decided to create something that I could bind to. I also needed a quick and dirty way to get an XML representation...

  • Error: The parameter is incorrect. (Access denied by BDC.)

    When attempting to configure the Business Data Catalog for use with MOSS Enterprise Search, it can be quite common to get this message when you try crawling for the first time. The cause is actually pretty simple, but I figured I would give some troubleshooting advice today. When you get this error,...

  • How to: Specify a Content Source using the Keyword Syntax

    At some point you may want to do an Enterprise Search query and specify that the results come from a particular content source. A lot of times you might create a custom scope with that content source in it, but if you don't want to create a new scope, you can just query the content source directly...

  • Tulsa SharePoint Users Group Meeting Canceled Tonight

    Unfortunately, the Tulsa SharePoint Users Group meeting had to be canceled tonight. Don't fret, I will still be presenting my talk on the BDC in April or May. I'm sorry to disappoint all of my die hard fans that were planning on attending tonight. Just kidding, I don't have any fans. :) I...

  • BDC: Could not create profile page for Entity

    I have seen quite a few searches for this warning in our stats, so I thought I would address the following message received when importing an application definition into the Business Data Catalog. Could not create profile page for Entity MyEntity. The error is: Default action exists for application 'MyInstance'...

  • Adding a Default Action to a Business Data Catalog Entity

    I tend to write the most about things that I am currently working with. Today I have been working with the Business Data Catalog (BDC) again and I thought I might point out how to configure a default action because it isn't very well documented. A default action is the URL, that will be used when...
