- Writeback issue in case of bool / int combination of columns / fields
BDLC V3.1.6 - (Internal version only)
BDLC V3.1.5 - New
- There was an issue using unique identifiers with BDLC with write-back
enabled. Now there is a new best-practice approach, how to use
SharePoint as a database frontend and manage inserts using
GUIDs as a primary key:
1. Create a database field bdlcGuid
(case-sensitive) as uniqueidentifier (for SQL Server) or String field for other
systems as primary key or use this alias in the query for such a field.
Create a SharePoint Column bdlcGuid (case-sensitive) as string field.
care, that both fields are mapped. Check mapping for this.
4. Set bdlcGuid as
primary key in the BDLC Settings dialog
5. When new items are created on the
SharePoint side, bdlcGUID is pre-set with a newly generated Guid
6. When new items are created on the database side, GUIDs are
also created in case of SQL Server. Please enter something similar manually in
case of other systems.
7. In this way SharePoint can be used for database
data acquisition with BDLC.
Please note, that the title column by default
is set to the primary key value, if not mapped. We advice, to map the title
column in the query to something more useful, e.g. an expression of important
- Improved feature: In case of licensing issues advanced error messages are
displayed in the BDLC configuration dialog.
BDLC V3.1.4 - Fix:
- Write-back database update operations failed in datasheet view for certain
column / field types (e.g. float, datetime). That is fixed in 3.1.4.
BDLC V3.1.3 - (internal, not released to
BDLC V3.1.2 - Fix:
- When SharePoint list item properties are modified by workflows (e.g.
manually triggered) with write-back enabled, changes in mapped fields are
written to the database immediately (update operation). But there was an issue,
that delivered NULL instead of current values. This is fixed in 3.1.2. Now all
mapped current properties (unchanged and changed) are correctly delivered to the
BDLC V3.1.1 - Fix:
- Blanks in database text fields (e.g. instead of NULL values or empty
strings) have caused ongoing background updates because of an issue with the
SharePoint batch import API.
This is fixed in 3.1.1. Now these columns /
fields are updated on data change only, as expected.
BDLC V3.1 - Changes, fixes and new features:
- New: There is an installer now for the SharePoint 2010
version too. No need for dealing with Powershell anymore. It can be
used to savely install, upgrade and remove BDLC.
- New: There is an update button now in the toolbar for SharePoint
2010, similar to the update action in the action menu in MOSS 2007. For
manual update on demand there is no need anymore to enter the BDLC settings
dialog. Users must have create / update / delete rights for the list content.
There is no need anymore to have the right to modify list settings.
- New: In the BDLC settings dialog, if no primary key is set,
there is a warning now on save. Please keep in mind that
without any primary key, items are completely deleted and re-inserted on each
update! That might be no problem with small lists. But it is advised to set a
primary key in any case, if possible. These "primary key" is related to a
SharePoint column only, not to a database field. It has to be unique, but it
must not be a native primary key in the database. For SharePoint 2010 you can
set the "Unique" property for the column to ensure this.
- New: There is an API now also for update actions. Now all
BDLC related features can be programmed using the API, e.g. list creation,
connect to external database, configure BDLC Settings and start data update.
- New: There will be an additional product "Key Value Lookup
Column" that allows native lookups to another list. For those type of
lookups not the SharePoint Item ID is used (as in SharePoint OOB lookup column)
but any pair of key / value columns in a SharePoint list.
way complex database projects normalized with foreign keys can be moved
completely to SharePoint without any loss of integrity.
- Fix: There was an issue with starting declarative workflows
(SPD and Visio - not VS-based) with background updates. The issue was
originally causes by MOSS 2007 SP1. This is fixed in BDLC V3.1. Now all types of
workflows start with manual and background update for changed items only in the
same way for WSS, MOSS and SharePoint 2010. Please keep in mind that a primary
key must be used in this case.
- Fix: There was an issue with ignored database inserts when entered
in datasheet view. This is fixed in V3.1.
- Fix: Column / Field mapping: Database fields, that have
similar names to SharePoint system columns (id, contenttypeid, contenttype,
modified, created, author, editor, attachments, last_x0020_modified,
created_x0020_date, uniqueid, guid) are now mapped and handled correctly. They
will be created and mapped with the prefix "bdlc" in the SharePoint list. Please
note, that you cannot update any SharePoint system column with database content.
- Fix: There was an issue with datetime fields (database) mapped to
text columns (SharePoint). The content was found different in any case,
so there where contignous updates. This is fixed in V3.1
- Fix: Writeback will be disabled now automatically, if no primary key is set.
- Change: Lookup columns / fields are now mapped and
supported with BDLC. Lookup fields will be updated bi-directional and - if there
is valid content in the respective database string field - the lookup field will
work as expected for those type of fields.
- Change: Custom columns / fields are now supported with
BDLC. The columns are mapped to database fields and the content is updated
- Change: Some error messages are changed. Please see
resource files for more details and localization possibly required for non
english / german systems.
- Change: BDLC Settings Page: Layout was changed.

- BDLC lists are no longer of a special type. You cause al existing list
types, e.g. contacts or custom list. The BDLC list type is kept for
- There is an Action Menu now to update BDLC lists.
- Usage of Access Rights was improved: If you update with
action menu, "Add Item", "Delete Item", "Update Item" right is required only. To
access the settings dialog, "manage Lists" rights are required. That could
prevent users from acess to security relevant information like connection
strings or select statemenets.
- The connection string can be stored in the web.config
instead of the settings dialog for security reasons. If you define a
term myConnectionString in your AppSettings section of web.config, you can use
web.config:myConnectionString as BDLC connection string.
- You no longer have to use the prefix "bdlc" to create a
field mapping to data source fields. Simply chose the same name for data source
fields and Sharepoint list columns to map. Use the "Check Mapping" feature to
verify that, because sometimes Sharepoint choses unexpected internal field
But the prefix "bdlc" in internal field names is still supported for
- There is no "Create" button anymore, to completely
re-create the list structure It is replaced by an "Add Columns" button. Any
external data source fields, that are not in the SharePoint list, are added. You
have to delete unused columns manually as usual in SharePoint, if no longer
- If list data is updated using the update button, a new warning
dialogue is displayed. List data could be changed, with respect to your
external data source. Take care, if you connect and update an existing
SharePoint list the very first time. If, for example, the data source is empty -
all SharePoint list items are deleted.
- There are some improvements with support of certain data
types, e.g. float, yes/no, currency, lookup, text, note etc.
- Licensing issues in some certain configurations with V2.0.0 are solved in
- Until V2.01 all list items are deleted, while adding new columns in
SharePoint to the BDLC list. That was changed in V2.02. Now no items are deleted
while adding a new column to the BDLC list. The items can be updated after
adding a new column to fill data into the newly added column.
- More details you will find here.

- Most special characters in field names are mapped
automatically now, including öäüß.- etc.
- Field/Column mapping is no longer case sensitive, e.g.
CustomerID is mapped to Customerid
- Mapping errors raises an errror message after creation of
SharePoint list structure now, so that you can check field mappings and see,
- String fields are created as "Single line text" column in SharePoint with
< 256 characters now and shortened if required by default. You have
to modify the SharePoint list column type from "Single Line Text" to "Multiline
Text" to store strings that are longer as 255 characters. In this way
SharePoint list features like filtering will work by default.
- The "All Items" view is modified by default to show the
title column with edit link
- The Title column is filled with the primary key(s) by
default, if not mapped otherwise.
- Update improvements in case of date / time fields

- HTML content in fields is now transferred correctly to
- BDLC based lists can now updated on demand per URL or page load without to
go to the BDLC settings dialog

SharePoint after first import. That was fixed in 1.63.
- More details see here.

- BDLC list configuration dialog can't be accessed (Unspecific SharePoint
error message). Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 is not installed.
Please update your .NET Framework to current version. This is fixed in
- Please take care, if you have columns in your data source with special
characters or spaces in column name, e.g. "tel nr" or "Straße". These columns
are shown in preview and are correctly created in the SharePoint BDLC list. But
they are not updated. This is fixed in V1.5
- If one update timer job ends with error for any reason, no other Jobs are
The job is set to locked in the configration list. This is
fixed in V1.5
