I am trying to add a few DVWPs to my site's default page using SharePoint Designer. I find that I can add some of these with no issues, I pick the data source and 'Show Data' immediately shows the fields to select from. For another list, selecting show
data leads to a long period where SPD appears not to be responding before eventually returning the message 'The server could not complete your request.....'. Clicking 'Details' shows that there is no message returned.
The list I am attempting to query now contains only 2 rows of test data. If I drop a list view web part of the same list on the same page the data appears instantaneously.
Any suggestions on why some lists could prove problematic in a DVWP in Designer?
EDIT: If I select to convert that List View Web Part to a Data View I get the same lack of response from Designer
