SharePoint – Create a view that only shows Minor Versions

In SharePoint it’s actually not that easy to create a view that gives you all the minor or major versions of a document library. Out of the box, it doesn’t seems like you can create a calculated field, which are using the “Version” column. But it is perfectly possible, it’s just hidden from the choice box.

If you need a view of files that are in progress or are somehow being worked on, there is a perfectly simple and easy way to do this.
On your Content type or library create a Calculated column called “Version Type”. Make it the type as “Single line of text”.

Make the formula like this:

=IF(RIGHT(Version,LEN(Version)-INT(FIND(“.”,Version)))=”0″,”Major”,”Minor”)

The result should look something like this:

Now create a view with a filter “Version Type” = “Minor” or “Version Type” = “Major”.
