In WSS 3.0 what table holds links that a SharePoint site uses? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    In WSS 3.0 , what table in the SharePoint databaase holds links or URLs that a SharePoint site uses? I am looking for a report or something that shows me where these links are located, so I can change them. Some of the links may be broken, since some where pointing to sites that no longer exist.

    Thanks

  • The SharePoint database schema is not documented for the public.

    Direct database access is not supported. You should use SharePoint object model to retrieve the data you are looking for.

  • Hi Paul,

    the SharePoint object model is the API to program against SharePoint.

    You have to develop code (either C#, VB.NET or Powershell) and retrieve the data from SharePoint using the documented SharePoint API.

    Cheers,
    Stefan

  • Hello Stefan,

    How to do I access the SharePoint object model with WSS 3.0? Just looking for a list that shows me where links are used on the pages within a SP site.

    Thanks
