I need to put a new default.aspx file in a SharePoint Portal 2003 server. Connection is through a Network Place to the web portal, ie. https://<servername> which makes the data in the SQL server visible. I can then delete the old file and save the new one. This worked great under XP. How do I set that network place in Vista?

The problem is NOT getting to the site in IE. I want to expose the data on the SQL server to be able to change the default.aspx file that is stored there. It is not stored on the server, but in the SQL database. From XP you could create a Network Place to the webserver, which would expose the SQL server data. IE opens the default.aspx file to process. As the SharePoint Admin I need to replace that file.

The folder you entered does not appear to be valid Xmark

by hbeta In reply to Check out "Computer"

My problem with this process, is that no matter what site I enter, be it the SharePoint portal, a doclib, or any other IIS website on my domain\network, it gives me the error "The folder you entered does not appear to be valid". I can get to all these sites using the browser, loading hyperlinks from my Home Page. But I can't publish with Word2007 to any of these sites.

I have found out that this is a known problem with Vista. One work around suggested is to install any part of Office 2003 in addition to Office 2007, but I have not tried that yet. Microsoft has a paper on the issue but there is not workaround when the URL contains a file name.
