How to group on a part of the filename in a view of a picture/image library (WSS 3.0) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey

    I would like to be able to group on a part of the filename (eg 8 first characters) in a view of a picture/image library in WSS 3.0.

    I tried to use a calculated column to filter a part of the filename. But =LEFT(Fieldname,8) doesn't work for the field filename.

    I've found a solution for a simular problem in a document library: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en/sharepointadmin/thread/13d34b32-ff30-4a09-a56b-a5c298987196

    that converts the view to a XSLT Data View.

    But this is not possible for an image library.

    Does anyone have a clue how to resolve this problem?

    Is it possible the copy the value of the field filename to another field on a regular base? I've read this can be done with workflows in sharepoint server, but this option doesn't seem to be available in WSS 3.0.

    Thx for tips

    Best regards
