MOSS Compliance and Custom Auditing
Previously, I talked about the excellent doc that's available that discusses compliance for the Office 2007 system. For those wanting to customize the auditing capability there's a recent post by Ted Pattison, aka Mr. Gorilla Training, that you have to check out:
Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 provides auditing by default but it does not give the ability for a non-administrator to view the auditing history of a specific document or item in a list. This code sample shows a developer how to extend this auditing functionality to create an item-level auditing view in three different ways: using a custom SharePoint list, through the Excel client, and by manipulating the open XML file format to display auditing history using Excel Services on an application page. It is accompanied by a thorough white paper describing the code as well as a setup document.
Way to go Ted....
