Posted By:      Posted Date: September 03, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I am setting up a new deployment of Sharepoint 2007.Somebody else started the deployment and setup a http://server/sites/docssite as a colloboration site.I want to serve from the root and make that a 'home' portal for thecompany, so I setup a Collaboration Portal on '/'.Now if i go to 'https://server', it takes me to 'https://server/Pages/Default.aspx' and shows the collaboration portal. The first tab is thename of the company, but the second tab says 'Error'. If i hover overthe error tab, it shows this error message:---An error occured while rendering navigation for requested URL: /.Exception message: List does not existThe page you selected contains a list that does not exist.  It mayhave been deleted by another user.

I have a dropdownlist in a detailsview edit Item template. Also I have two tables - Employee and Main. In the Employee table I have column EmpId and AssignedTo. In the main table I have EmpId which is connected to the Employee table.

The code is:

Error "List does not exist" trying to insert pictures or links from Content Editor WebPart


I have put a Content Editor WebPart on a page and I'm trying to insert a picture from the Rich text editor, but whenever I try this I get this error:

List does not exist.

The page you selected contains a list that does not exist. It may have been deleted by another user.

This also happens when inserting links. When I use Fiddler I can see that the error occurs somewhere in AssetPortalBrowser.aspx and It's likely that the last location used to insert pictures and links no longer exist. So the question is how do I reset the location to point to a list on the current site, or any other list for that matter? I tried deleting and adding the WebPart on the page without any luck. Typing in a valid link in the link text box or setting the attribute "DefaultToLastUsedLocation" to "false" in the call to AssetPortalBrowser.aspx did not work either. I read the solution at http://mossipqueen.wordpress.com/2008/08/08/assetportalbrowser-error-list-does-not-exist/ (de- and re-activate Office SharePoint Server Publishing feature) but the feature is not activated on my web. Does anyone have a tip on what to do? This happens on a live SharePoint environment so there may be some restrictions as to what I can

Import-SPWeb, List does not exist error

I have a strange problem with custom lists in an imported site.
After exporting the site in Central Admin by clicking "Export a site or list" and importing it with "Import-SPWeb" (on a different farm), I cannot read or create new items in custom lists in the imported site. However, by code, i.e. using PowerShell or custom Web Parts, I can read items in the list without any problems.

If I click on any item in a list however, I get an error saying "List does not exist. The page you selected contains a list that does not exist.  It may have been deleted by another user."

I guess it has something to do with permissions, since I get an "Access denied" error when trying to create new items through the browser. The permissions settings seem fine in the browser though...

EDIT: This seems to occur only on lists where I have created custom list forms, like Disp and Edit pages. I guess it has something to do with these files. Are any one else having the same problem?

EDIT 2: Correction, this occurs on every list.

  • Error calling WCF service that is returning list.".Debugging resource strings are unavailable ......

    Ok.this is just making me frustrated... Here is step by step of what I am trying to do (& not able to) 1. I am calling WCF service hosted in a SharePoint 2010 site from a silverlight app in same domain (So no cross doman I guess). 2. I use Linq to Sharepoint for querying the DB. 3. I am having a list "machines" in Sharepoint 2010 that is having a lookup column from Other list called "part" 4. My WCF method GetAllMachines() works perfectly well when it skips the lookup column "partname" & returns List of type machineitem. 5. But problem occurs when I add machineitemobject.parts.partsname in my Linq to Sharepoint query . My service gives the error not found Async_ExceptionOccurred] Arguments: Debugging resource strings are unavailable." 6. Note that return type of my Method is List<machinesitem> 7. The point to note here is that I use SPMETAL tool to generate the LINQ class that maps the lists . So When I try to query the lookup column it tries to add List item of the type class & that is what causing the error. Is it because I am not using datacontract in my service (but it returns the strings & all private members of machines list e.g. name,title etc) Is it making the attribute Serialisable will solve the error ??? I am kind of lost in it ...Plss help!!   Thanks

    "[DBNETLIB][ConnectionOpen (Connect()).]SQL Server does not exist or access denied error for a sched

    Hi Guys, The subject of this question is the error which I am receiving when running a scheduled job also this is an error which we get at a random intervals and the frequency would be once or twice in a month. I have been through several posts and didn't concluded anything out of it. At the time when we receive this error the memory usage of the database was normal with free resources available and also the network was stable without issues. Our Sql database is in cluster mode with named instance. Can anyone share some information on this, I know this is not the right forum with the error message I have posted but am sure some one might have face the same problem when running some ETL jobs. Source and target both are sql server and the error message is generated in the validation phase of the connection manager connecting to target database. SSIS 2005 SP2 64 bit environmentRaju

    Error creating Read Item or Read List operation in Sharepoint Designer 2010

    In terms of high-level requirements, I need to pull in lists from a couple of different web apps.  To do this, I’m using SPD 2010 to create an External Content Type for the list of interest.  I’m able to create a SOAP Service or WCF Service connection just fine.  However, when I try to create the external content type and create a Read Item Operation on one of the GetList or any other Get* (or other Update methods for that matter) methods, I get the following error:"The method that your operation is based on has parameters with complex types that do not have default parameterless constructor.  This kind of data source methods cannot be used in Business Data Catalog."I tried defining an operation on the “AddAttachment” method, and that worked just fine.  I also tried providing default values to the listName and viewName parameters when creating the SOAP Service connection, but still get the error.  Same issue with a WCF Service connection as well. Does anyone know if this is a 2010 issue, or am I approaching this requirement incorrectly?  What are other approaches for connecting to lists that reside in a different web app than yours?
