I have been working on Selective Content Migration using "SharePoint Content Deployment Wizard" from CodePlex for a particular SPList.
The migrated data is displayed in a Custom List in SP2007, in which 2 fields Preparers & Approvers (columns) are of "People & Group" data type. These two columns displays the "Name (with Presence)" of People & Group type and I am able to click the
user names to open the user details for all active AD users.
However, some of the users are disabled in Active Directory and we are unable to populate them in SharePoint. Due to which, they are not visible in the mentioned columns. Is there a way to restrict SharePoint from resolving the inactive / disabled AD users
and continue to display them in the Preparers & Approvers column?
Also what is the option to display their Name (like Sachin Dubey) in a seperate column for those who are inactive in AD? Meaning, those who are disabled in AD, their name without hyper link alone should be displayed in another column say Preparer Name or something
like that. I tried to use Single Line Text datatype to get the People & Group value, but it didn't work.
Please suggest the possible option to achieve this.
