Error deleting an item from Custom List in 2010

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 06, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I have an issue that I can't figure out, concerning deleting an item from a custom list in SharePoint 2010. If I create a custom list and add a few items, and I attempt to delete one of these items by selecting the checkbox to the left and using the "Delete Item" command on the Ribbon, I get this error (in IE):Object Expectedinplview.jsCode:0Line:2Char:20804URI: <a long nondescriptive URI>Interestingly enough, if I attempt to delete the same item by viewing it and selecting "Delete Item" (in the dialog box), it works that way. It seems like I can't delete items using the command in the Ribbon. This is also true for deleting library document items.Any ideas on how to solve this? I can't seem to find out what this inplview.js file is used for, and it doesn't exist on the server PC (I did a file search for it, and came up empty).Thanks,John

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? 

The page cannot be displayed error when creating new item in custom list


Hi i am workign with a cutom list and every time i try to add a new item and hit ok i get the error shown below. Sometimes it happens and other times it doesnt and it only happens with a select few. One way of getting around this error is to not edit it on the page on which it is on but to go to view all content then to the custom list.

I have tried observing whether there was an issue with the pages being checked in and checked out but all pages were checked in and published. I tried deleting and recreating the custom list and no luck. Your feedback would be much appreciated! Thanks in advanced

btw i am a user with full control and our site is being hosted.

Webservice versions.asmx: Getversions-method returns error on an item of a custom list.


I using GetVersions from the webservice http://server/_vti_bin/versions.asmx. This method works Okay in SharePoint 2007, and in SharePoint 2010 it also works Okay on documents from a document library. But when I used on an item from a custom list, it returns an error stating: "Value cannot be null.\r\nParameter name: key". In SharePoint 2007 I could retrieve the histroy on an item with the call GetVersions("Lists/MyCustomList/5_.000"), in SharePoint 2010 this fails.

Do I need to change the parameter, or use another filename for an item instead of "5_.000"? Does any one have the same experience?

Thank you

Access Denied error on custom workflow task list item


We have created a two level custom approval workflow on (an InfoPath) form library using SharePoint Designer (SPD) with first and second approver. The workflow works fine as long as the approver is in the Site Collection Administrators group. The approvers who are not in the admin group can get to the custom Task form for approve/reject, but they can only view the form. When they click on the “Edit Item” button of the task list item, they receive “Access Denied” error. We have given these approvers “Approve”, “Contribute” permissions on the Form library and even Full Control on the task form list (all items). Note: The users use their domain account and the error they are getting is: Access Denied, You are currently signed as DomainName\LoginName, Sign in as a different user.

We have read through several forums and have found people having the same issue. We tried all of the suggestions described in the following links - but no success so far.

Cannot enable Ribbon Edit Tab buttons and "connect" them to a list item in my custom webpart

I have one list with some custom fields and I want to develop a custom page. So, I created an ASPX page and added my custom webpart. This webpart has just a RichTextField, in edit mode, "linked" to one item of the list, like below: SPSite _SPSite = SPContext.Current.Site; SPWeb _SPWebProjects = _SPSite.OpenWeb("/Projects"); SPList _SPListProject = _SPWebProjects.GetList("/Projects/Lists/Project"); int _ID = Convert.ToInt32(this.Page.Request.QueryString["ID"]); RichTextField _RTF = new RichTextField(); _RTF.ID = "RTF"; _RTF.ControlMode = SPControlMode.Edit; _RTF.FieldName = "History"; _RTF.ItemContext = SPContext.GetContext(HttpContext.Current, _ID, _SPListProject.ID, _SPListProject.ParentWeb); _RTF.RenderContext = SPContext.GetContext(HttpContext.Current, _ID, _SPListProject.ID, _SPListProject.ParentWeb); this.Controls.Add(_RTF);   Then, I "turned on" the edit tab on the ribbon by doing the follow: protected override void OnPreRender(EventArgs e) { SPRibbon _CurrentRibbon = SPRibbon.GetCurrent(this.Page); _CurrentRibbon.TrimById("Ribbon.WebPartPage"); _CurrentRibbon.MakeTabAvailable("Ribbon.ListForm.Edit", string.Empty); _CurrentRibbon.MakeContextualGroupInitiallyVisible("Ribbon.ListForm.Edit", string.Empty); _CurrentRibbon.Minimized = false; _CurrentRi

Access Denied/The workflow could not copy the item workflow error after Sharepoint 2010 upgrade

We have a sharepoint designer workflow that copies a document from one library to another on the same site.  Before the upgrade to 2007 it worked fine, but now with 2010 it gives an error and cancels the workflow when it gets to the copy list item step.   The error on the workflow page: The workflow could not copy the item. Make sure the source and destination lists have the same columns and column settings.  Access Denied   Specifically it is the "copy list item current item to documentlibrary" sharepoint designer workflow action.   I have given the system account full permissions to the library and double checked that all columns are the same in both libraries.

Workflow - automatically create discussion item using title field of of custom list item as its subj

Anyone any ideas as to how I can configure SharePoint to create a discussion item using the title of a list item. e.g. user creates list item on a custom list - SP automatically creates a Discussion thread for this list item in the discussions list. I'm guessing this can't be down OOTB . would I be looking at SPD or a coded solution ? regards, Counie

Add a New Item to a Custom Sharepoint List and Sharepoint Calendar from one Infopath form.


I am trying to create an infopath form for requesting time off.  Once the request is approved I want the form to add the event to a calendar on sharepoint.  I was able to do this using the article by S.Y.M. Wong-A-Ton at http://www.bizsupportonline.net/infopath2007/programmatically-add-item-sharepoint-calendar-infopath.htm.  But I want the form to also add an item to a custom list that has the employees available time off stored on it.  That way the form can automatically subtract the time entered on the infopath form from what is available on the custom list.  I was able to do this using another article by S.Y.M. Wong-A-Ton at  http://www.bizsupportonline.net/infopath2007/programmatically-add-rich-text-item-sharepoint-list-infopath.htm.  I can make both of these functions happen seperately but I need them to happen on the same Infopath form.  I am using Infopath and MOSS 2007.  I have tried to use 2 CAML receive data files and I treid to co

SPD 2010 status 'Canceled' when using action 'Replace List Item Permissions'



I have been experiencing issues with using action "Replace List Item Permissions" with SPD 2010.
When adding an new list item the workflow runs as expected.
When editing the same item later, the workflowstatus gets "Canceled" and the joblog tells me:

09/22/2010 15:55:14.41  w3wp.exe (0x3584) 0x37B4 SharePoint Foundation Workflow Infrastructure 72fv Unexpected AutoStart Workflow: Microsoft.SharePoint.SPException: Recursive workflows are not permitted. at Microsoft.SharePoint.Workflow.SPWorkflowAutostartEventReceiver.<>c__DisplayClass1.<AutoStartWorkflow>b__0(SPSite superUserSite, SPWeb superUserWeb)

The Workflow uses the options
- "Start workflow automatically when an item is created"
- "Start workflow automatically when an item is changed"
My environment is:
- MOSS 2010 Enterprise RTM english with german languagepacks
- SharePoint Designer 2010, Version 14.0.4760.1000

Any ideas why this error is occurring and how to resolve it?
Thanks, Stefan.

Error creating a normal Custom List


I am using the normal sharepoint screans to create a custom list. When I click create it falls over with

'w3wp.exe (0X2254) 0X2C80 CMS Publishing 8Ztg Medium Got list item version, but item was null. ' on the log files.

This is a publishing template site with no VS custom list definitions.
This is just a normal site.

What can i do to rectify this.

SharePoint 2010 search crawl error: The SharePoint item being crawled returned an error when request

SharePoint 2010 search crawl error:
The SharePoint item being crawled returned an error when requesting data from the web service. ( Error from SharePoint site: Specified argument was out of the range of valid values. )

This error is for both document and folder. The document and folder were created/uploaded via SharePoint User Interface only. Later these doc/folder were deleted. And we found the search result showing the documents that were deleted from the doc library resulting in '404 page not found error' upon clicking. Ofcourse we did an incremental crawl after  deleting the file/folder. The error is same even after full crawl.

Environment details:
1 server - WFE role
1 server - App server role
1 server - index server role

Another information if helpful: We used some third party tool to migrate few sample data in the same server but on different site collection, different content database but on the same web application. The tool migrated the data and set unique permissions too for the migrated files. We tried deleting them via SharePoint interface and that files too gave a similar error!
