Sharepoint interview questions with answers: lists and library

I had faced below listed issues while doing migration from SharePoint 2007/2010 to 2013:

Quick Edit view issue:

Quick Edit view: Result: Get "Assertion Failed: Break into debugger?"
We applied the JavaScript at master page level, issue solved.

“Files” and “library” option are not available by default in ribbon for document library:
Issue is it will be disabled if you add any web part to the OOB pages (like CEWP)

By default, SharePoint limitation for Size of URL is 260 characters.
You might get the below exception if exceed the limit:
Exception: The specified file or folder name is too long. The URL path for all files and folders must be 260 characters or less (and no more than 128 characters for any single file or folder name in the URL). Please type a shorter file or folder name.

Note: Microsoft recommended size limit for single file name is 128 characters and URL limit is 260 characters.

I have uploaded one document to the document library and when I open it through browser the size of the URL is 258 characters(max limit 260) and later on I have changed the web application “ to and now my the document size of the URL is 263 characters(means exceeded the limit). My Question how the SharePoint handles these types of scenarios?

As per my analysis: you can’t edit/download the document but we can view the document through browser.

View the large number of records in SharePoint list/library:
We can view the large number of records (around 1lac) by removing the filters, group by/sort by and select the “Show items without folders” option.

Export to excel the list item with attachments:
We can achieve it by using the "Open with access" option. From there if wants we can directly download from the access.

Export to excel the list item with attachments URLs:
We can achieve it by using web service concept in Nintex

Export to Excel”. Keep in mind that you can’t export a list that has more than 52,000 items;
