File upload error -List View threshold setting

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 24, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

When I was trying to upload multiple images it was showing the following error.

"Failed to upload file 'filename'Try uploadiing again"

So when I looked into the Picture library setting it was showing


List view threshold :

5050 items (list view threshold is 5000).
The number of items in this list exceeds the list view threshold, which is 5000 items. Tasks that cause excessive server load (such as those involving all list items) are currently prohibited.

Learn about managing a large list or library and ensuring that items display quickly.


Whether it is the error with the threshold limit.If so whther I can change the limit and is it safe?

Flat file upload: Error when inserting into datetime field.

Hi All I am having an issue with uploading a txt file into an SQL table and one of the fields needs to go into a datetime column. The issue is with column3 I have been into the advanced editor of the flat file source and set the output column to decimal and it fails. The error I am getting is below: Error: 0xC02020A1 at Materials Transfer, Flat File Source [1]: Data conversion failed. The data conversion for column "Column 3" returned status value 2 and status text "The value could not be converted because of a potential loss of data.". Error: 0xC0209029 at Materials Transfer, Flat File Source [1]: SSIS Error Code DTS_E_INDUCEDTRANSFORMFAILUREONERROR.  The "output column "Column 3" (48)" failed because error code 0xC0209084 occurred, and the error row disposition on "output column "Column 3" (48)" specifies failure on error. An error occurred on the specified object of the specified component.  There may be error messages posted before this with more information about the failure. Error: 0xC0202092 at Materials Transfer, Flat File Source [1]: An error occurred while processing file "D:\Development\r3_downloads\mat.txt" on data row 1. Any help would be great.   Thanks BigGopher

Error when modifying permissions on Itemadded for a file upload

All, I have registered an eventhandler for a document library. On ItemAdded, I want to modify the permissions of the item such that only the uploader(creator) should have access to the file he is uploading. When I upload a file and fill in the required metadata and click on Save, I get the error"The file SubmissionForReview_Draft/Untitled.htm has been modified by SHAREPOINT\system " . But, I did verify the event fired and all appropriate permissions are set. The only explanation for this could be, the file gets uploaded, the event fired and the properties of the file has changed and then the form to add additional metadata has poped up. On clicking on save, SharePoint determines that the file for which the metadata has to be added has changed internally and throws error, which may be as expected. Question: Is there a way around this issue, maybe to suppress check on file changed ?   Thanks mano Mano Mangaldas | Blog : http://howtosharepoint.blogspot.com 

ASP:Upload control . Uploading into a SharePoint Document Library Subfolder and FILE NOT FOUND error

RE: ASP:Upload control . Uploading into a SharePoint Document Library Subfolder and FILE NOT FOUND error Two Issues, apparently unrelated. I have subfolders like this /ApplicantDocuments/20 and /ApplicantDocuments/21 (where 20 and 21 are my subfolders and ApplicantDocuments is my library. 1. The below function is erroring with file not found, but I confirmed I'm sending the fully qualify path (i.e c:\test.txt) to System.IO.FileStream content = System.IO.File.Open(documentFileName, System.IO.FileMode.Open); 2. Even if it worked, looking at the code, I'm not using argument foldername.  I'm passing 20 to the argument. How can I make sure it uploads into subfolder 20 of ApplicantDocuments? Thank you.     Just testing in test environment. Will tighten code once it works.   public void UploadDocumentToSite(string foldername, string documentFileName) {      SPSite siteCollection = new SPSite("https://xxxxxx");      SPWeb web = siteCollection.OpenWeb();      //SPSite.AllowUnsafeUpdates = true;      //Web.AllowUnsafeUpdates = true;      string Lib = "ApplicantDocuments";      SPFolder destFolder = web.GetFolder(Lib);      sendmail(documentFileName+" "+foldername);  

Server Error while file upload in asp.net mvc2


When i upload a file of size 35MB or more it gives

Server Error
404 - File or directory not found.
The resource you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.

<httpRuntime maxRequestLength="3145728" executionTimeout="1200" requestValidationMode="2.0"/>

what may be the issue?

http 400 Error when performing item upload after setting custom edit form on content type



What I am trying to do is create custom edit forms for different content types within the same document library.....so basically I have done the following:

  • I have created two site content types and reconfigured my library to use CT's. 
  • I then connected to my site using SPD. 
  • When examining my library I can see that I have the two CT that I added earlier.  I then created a new editform for one the CTs using the top ribbon menu and in the drop down box associated it to the CT.  I did not select this as the default form for the library.
  • I then updated the library CT (not site CT) with the url to form in the editform properties.

When I create a document and edit the properties it works fine - totally as expected.  However when I upload a document the default EditForm for the library is used and I can select the CT to associate the document to.  When I choose the CT with the custom form the new edit form is not found and I get a page not found error - http 400.

The full url for this library is is http://XXXX/functions/ehs/CSI

So the URL I have used is /functions/ehs/CSI/Forms/EditForm2.aspx (EditForm2.aspx) is my form and this is fine.  I have even used CSI/Forms/EditForm2.aspx and this works...  BUT ne

Upload Multiple File using JQuery in asp.net

Upload a File to a SharePoint Document Library - Part I

The following helper class demonstrates a few techniques that allow documents to be uploaded to a SharePoint document library programmatically without using the API or a custom web service. You don't need to specify a document library name, and it will create any folders specified in the URL as required. File meta data will be updated if any properties are passed.

Multi File Upload Using JQuery!

Custom Control Design view error



I have created a custom control from scratch and it works fine as in you can build the project that uses it and it works fine at runtime. Problem is when you go to design view the control shows an error in the place of where the control should be rendered.

Error: '<SomeValue>' Could not be set to '<SomeProperty>'

This shows up on all my custom set properties. These properties are created as basic as possible. I can give the properties values in Source view and run the app just fine. I can even add a Onclick event. If I don't set any custom properties the control will render fine in Design view. It's only when I set a value to a custom property.

Property Code Example:

public string Text
                string ret = "";
                object obj = ViewState["Text"];
                if (obj != null)
                    ret = obj.ToString();
                return ret;
                ViewState["Text"] = value;

I've even removed the Category and Description tags with no difference.

I don't know if what I said makes sens, but I hope it
