SharePoint Designer 2007 - Customize List View - Error when saving view ASPX page


We have a custom list definition that includes custom site columns.  When we try to open one of the list view aspx pages in SharePoint to update the view query we get an error when trying to save the page in SharePoint Designer 2007.  We receive a warning that the operation will customize the page from the site definition, which is fine.  And then get a general "Server error: ServiceRequestorID" alert.  ServiceRequestorID is a custom site column used by the list definition.

ServiceRequestorID field definition:

<Field ID="{FA39D24D-AB40-4b1d-BD80-94ABE34A7578}" Name="ServiceRequestorID" DisplayName="Service Requestor ID" StaticName="

When Lookup Column on a NewForm.aspx, that was populated from another SP List, does not contain a value in the DropDown menu can it be added/inserted into the source SP List from the NewForm without leaving the NewForm? 

Is there code or example how to insert the Item in the SP List, then refresh/repopulate the Lookup Column's DropDown menu (in the NewForm)?

Custom List Edit is redirecting to newform


Good Afternoon - I have an issue with a Custom List I created.  I created a custom new form, called CopyNewForm and it works perfectly.  I tried to change EditForm just to rearrange fields.  Everything broke New, Edit, and Display.  I got New and Display working (I've made no changes to Display) but now when you select EditForm, SharePoint redirects to the CopyNewForm.


The Supporting Files of List Properties has been changed for <b>Item</b>.  New item form directs to CopyNewForm.aspx and Edit item form points to EditForm.aspx for content type "Item". 


I'm at a loss as to why when I try to click on Edit Item, SharePoint directs me to CopyNewForm. 


Please does anyone have any suggestions.

how to customize the graphical summary view of the survey list

Hi, I created a survey list with a number of open questions. The out-of-box graphical summary view, however, list all questions by default.

This means one bar for every single answer of each open question because most of those answers are expected to be unique.. I tried using Javascript trick to hide certain questions, but there is simply no identifier I can use for each question block..

Is there any way I can choose what questions to present in the graphical view or any other workaround..

Thanks in advance

Using Infopath 2010 to customize a SharePoint 2010 list with columns using Managed Metadata


Hello All-

I would like to customize the "new" form on a SharePoint list that has some columns that use managed metadata term sets as options.  Unfortunately, when I do so, I get the message:

"InfoPath cannot generate a form template for the SharePoint list."

The following fields in the SHarePoint list are not supported because of their data type and will not be available in InfoPath Designer:

-MyColumnName (TaxonomyFieldTypeMulti)

This error message seems to be pretty self explanatory, but it boggles my mind that this would be the case.  Can I really not customize my list "new" form in Infopath if I am using columns with managed metadata?  Any workarounds?
