I get an error whe I try to delete a row from a list in a SP 2003 site

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 03, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Hello Everyone, I have a customer who is having problems with an SP 2003 site. Here is what the concern is: I have a list on an SP 2003 site... and I am attempting to delete a row from the list... To do that I am setting the list in "Datasheet view". I select the row, right click and select the "delete" option from the menu and delete the row. Then when I click on the "Show in Standard View" button, I get the following error: "An unexpected error has occured. Changes to your data cannot be saved. For this error, you can retry or discard your changes". When I retry, it says the same error msg... Then I have to discard my changes, and I am not successful in deleting the row. Please can someone help with this request? Regards, Reshma

Creating a Site Column that Looks up an External List causes error when saving site as a template.


I'm not sure what the best practice is here, but I'm having a major issue trying to save sites as templates and I think I narrowed it down as to what the issue is.

When I try to save a site as a template, it creates the solution package, but it doesn't activate it.  When I try to activate it manually, I get the following error:

Feature definition with Id e9431ed5-27b1-4c33-9eeb-81b4ace9d372 failed validation, file 'test1ListInstances\ElementsFields.xml', line 481, character 231: The 'SystemInstance' attribute is not allowed.

I opened up the solution package and looked at the ElementsFields.xml file.  I traced the line to this:

<Field Type="BusinessData" DisplayName="Acme People Name" Required="FALSE" EnforceUniqueValues="FALSE" Group="Custom Columns" ID="{55b3bbba-a7e3-4698-9946-648a6b726e9e}" SourceID="{026904fd-f2d0-4e57-a239-c6da838458fa}" StaticName="Acme_x0020_People_x0020_Name" Name="Acme_x0020_People_x0020_Name" SystemInstance="ACME" EntityNamespace="http://????????:28241" EntityName="People" BdcField="FullName" Profile="" HasActions="True" SecondaryFieldBdcNames="0" RelatedF

Server out of memory error in a LIST (anonymous site) that has eventhandlers


Scenario: We have a sharepoint site on wss 3.0 set to anonymous access. It has couple of lists and the pages render fine to any user. The moment I associated eventhandler to a list, started getting 'server out of memory'. Removing eventhandlers works fine but without eventhandlers I can't write business logic.

Searched so far and found that people have suggested to use guest account or some other account. Still looking into this so far.

Does anyone has better resolutions? Has Microsoft released any solution / hofix so far?

Delete not working on List.aspx - out of box



I'am trying to use Dynamic data web site on my project. I have Visual Studio 2010 enf Framework 4.0. I create the default project with the wizard. I add my own Entity Data Model.

When I try to use the "delete" autogenerated button on List.aspx, on the table ServerSetting (see image below), I receive a null exception.  I have no custom code involved in this operation and cannot seem to determine what is Null.

Any help would be appreciated!

    User Alert Management for a specific list versus entire SharePoint site?

    It seems that to be able to manage User Alerts, one must have Full Access to the entire SharePoint site - and then use => Site Settings > User Alerts. Ideally, I would like to be able to grant access to users to only be able to manage alerts for a specific list. Is this possible (without having to do any programming) and, if so, how? If such access is only available at the site level, I will simply create a Permission Level that allows one to only "Manage Alerts" Thanks in advance for any assistance. Dave
