Unlocking the Mysteries of the SharePoint Data View Web Part XSL Tags eBook Now Available

0 minute read

Starting today, my series of articles on Unlocking the Mysteries of the SharePoint Data View Web Part XSL Tags from my blog and EndUsersharePoint.com is available for download as an eBook from the Sympraxis Consulting Web site.  I’ve had many requests to “bind this content up” into a book or eBook, so I did just that.

I’ve updated the content and improved it for the eBook format with help from Christina Wheeler’s (@cwheeler76) great design skills.  Tell your friends, tell your neighbors, and enjoy!

  1. Marc,
    That’s a great idea to pull them all together. I had started saving them as PDF but was always getting the ads and comments with it.
    Thanks a lot for producing such a great resource.

    • Linda:

      Pricing these things is always a bit tricky, IMHO. I put a lot of work into it, and I don’t know how many copies I might sell. Based on the input that I’ve received on the series, people seem to want a copy sitting at their desk and are willing to pay for it (or have their employers do so). We’ll see how that plays out, I guess.

      I’m also using ClickBank to reach a wider audience, and I have to pay them for the privelege, of course.

      As far as I know, this is the only resource on this material on the market, at least packaged up in one place.


      • It must be nice that a company will buy books for their employees. I don’t have that benefit. I have to spend out of my own pocket and so have to look around to get the most for my buck. I only buy tech books when I have a Border’s coupon or from Amazon. And look at Sitepoint.com – they have 5 for 1 sales on their PDF books. I own almost all of them and even at full price one book is only $30 for 300+ page PDF.

        I understand you need to cover your expenses, but you might have more people interested in buying your book if you priced it lower. It would be nice to have as a resource, but I can’t justify that price when searching the Internet and bookmarking sites is free.

        • Linda:

          I’m really not trying to upset anyone by offering the articles packaged up and priced as I have. If bookmarking works for you, then I’m very glad that you find the content helpful and can get to it! Others have told me that they would be willing to pay for the 20 articles bound up into one PDF, and so I did that. Keep in mind that I’m offering the original content for free, and you are welcome to it.


  2. I was happy to spend $40 of my company’s money to save myself hours of search, trial & error, and frustration. I only wish I hadn’t already wasted multiple hours (and company dollars) on other books which *should* have this info, but don’t (e.g. the SharePoint Designer book from Wrox). Other SPD books contain no more than 60 pages of useful information and their prices range from $30-$60.

  3. Hi Marc,

    Its great and I have got some idea now after went through all the pages.

    I have a SharePoint list with 10 coloumns Title, created date, Amount, Status etc., and I need to filter the list based on (From Date, To Date, Min. Amount and Max. Amount, Title and status) dynamically by passing query string parameters for a DVWP. Hence I need to filter the list in different conditions as if(FromDate==””&&ToDate==””&&Title!=””&&Status==Submitted).
    I wrote CAML query for all where conditions and I have implemented using jquery SPServices. But I don’t know exactly how to solve the same using advanced filtering with XSLT/Xpath expression using SharePoint Designer 2010.

    Will you please help me how to get rid from the above problem.

    Thanks in Advance.
