Error when creating Issues Web Database: The formula contains a syntax error or is not supported.

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 20, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint


I have been trying to create an Issues Web Database on one of our MOSS 2010 servers, but I keep getting the error "The formula contains a syntax error or is not supported" when I try to. I have tried this on one of our other 2010 environments and it works fine but for some reason it happens just one this one.

In the error logs I found this:

Error updating field: List: Issues, SchemaXml: <Field DisplayName="OpenedDate" Type="DateTime" Required="TRUE" Format="DateOnly" xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/soap/" Name="OpenedDate"><DefaultFormula>=TODAY()</DefaultFormula><DefaultFormulaValue></DefaultFormulaValue><Validation Message="Value must be greater than 1/1/1900.">=OpenedDate&gt;=DATETIME(1900,1,1,0,0,0)</Validation></Field>. Exception: Microsoft.SharePoint.SPException: The formula contains a syntax error or is not supported.

Does anyone have an idea as to what the cause might be?

ERROR [HY000] [Informix .NET provider][Informix]Database locale information mismatch

The web server where the web application hosted is running IBM Informix Connect 2.81. There is no such error before the upgrade is done.

As a developer, i have IBM Informix Client-SDK 2.90 installed on my local pc and debug the page where the read is needed from infimacs but no such error found.

Is it possible to to to have this settin

Syntax error (missing operator) in query expression

Good Day Gurus!

I have a Excel user application which has a user form (named 'Registo') that displays criteria and an image that has been entered in it's corresponding spreadsheet. This works the way it should.  There's also the ability to search the spreadsheet via a form (by clicking 'Pesquisar' button) this opens a search form. However, I having a bit of a problem with it. When I try to search for something it basically doesn't do anything at all. It just sits there. So I tried to debug it and I think I'm having a problem with either the JET db engine or somethign with teh query or maybe I don't have the correct reference.

I 'borrowed' this Excel application from another forum because it's exactly what I'm looking for! However, I suck at vb.

So I was hoping somebody could take a look at the code and see if I'm missing something?  I'm kinda' desparate to get this working because I'm been trying to figure it out for days and I'm running out of time.  Cry

MDW Disk Usage for Database Report Error - A data source has not been supplied for the data source D

One of our SQL 2005 database started to give us "Database is in transition...Error 952". We were trying to Take the DB offline when this problem occurred. Restarting SQL service did not help us. We were unable to do anything with this database as we were unable to obtain any locks. What resolved the problem? Re-starting manamgement studio on client machine. Go Figure!
