"User cannot be found" error when selecting "List Settings" for a list.

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I have a simple custom list I created with two fields.  When I try connecting to the list's settings (the listedit.aspx page), I get a "User cannot be found" error.  I get this same error when I click on the workflow settings as well.  All other features of the list appear to be working normally.  There are a couple other lists in my site that exhibit this behavior, but the rest function normally.

The only recent change we made to the site was enabling an SSL certificate.  When my sys admin returns from vacation I'll have him disable SSL for testing purposes, but in the meantime has anyone come across a similar issue?

Error message when selecting a row in webdatagrid



I have a webdatagrid control that is loaded by using an sqldatasource.  I have add and edit methods that behave correctly, however, I have a problem when I delete a row.   I can delete the row correctly from the datagrid and the database, but as soon as I select another row in the grid straight after, I get an error:

Microsoft JScript runtime error: 'undefined' is null or not an object


There are no events wired up to the row select, so it doesn't appear to be that.


Can anyone help?

  • Error calling WCF service that is returning list.".Debugging resource strings are unavailable ......

    Ok.this is just making me frustrated... Here is step by step of what I am trying to do (& not able to) 1. I am calling WCF service hosted in a SharePoint 2010 site from a silverlight app in same domain (So no cross doman I guess). 2. I use Linq to Sharepoint for querying the DB. 3. I am having a list "machines" in Sharepoint 2010 that is having a lookup column from Other list called "part" 4. My WCF method GetAllMachines() works perfectly well when it skips the lookup column "partname" & returns List of type machineitem. 5. But problem occurs when I add machineitemobject.parts.partsname in my Linq to Sharepoint query . My service gives the error not found Async_ExceptionOccurred] Arguments: Debugging resource strings are unavailable." 6. Note that return type of my Method is List<machinesitem> 7. The point to note here is that I use SPMETAL tool to generate the LINQ class that maps the lists . So When I try to query the lookup column it tries to add List item of the type class & that is what causing the error. Is it because I am not using datacontract in my service (but it returns the strings & all private members of machines list e.g. name,title etc) Is it making the attribute Serialisable will solve the error ??? I am kind of lost in it ...Plss help!!   Thanks

    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?

    People Picker gets error when selecting user from a trusted domain(one way forest trust)

      Hello all,   Our current setup is SharePoint 2010 Foundation server in one external forest(Trusting forest), and trying to have users in a separate internal forest(Trusted forest) access the site. The external forest's DC and SharePoint server are in a DMZ separated by a firewall with the internal forest's DC and users. A one way transitive forest trust was successfully created and has been validated. On SharePoint, we're ran the sts commands to set the setapppassword as well as the peoplepicker-searchadforests adding the domain that the SharePoint server is in, as well as the trusted forest. An iisreset was issued after running these commands. In SharePoint, we can then search for users from the trusted domain, and select the users in the Select People page, but when hitting the final Ok, an error is received: An unexpected error has occurred in which a correlation ID is provided. Reviewing the SharePoint logs we find the following: <!-- /* Font Definitions */ @font-face {font-family:Calibri; panose-1:2 15 5 2 2 2 4 3 2 4; mso-font-charset:0; mso-generic-font-family:swiss; mso-font-pitch:variable; mso-font-signature:-520092929 1073786111 9 0 415 0;} @font-face {font-family:Tahoma; panose-1:2 11 6 4 3 5 4 4 2 4; mso-font-charset:0; mso-generic-font-family:swiss; mso-font-pitch:variable; mso-font-signature:-520081665 -1073717157 41 0 66047 0;} /* Style Defin

    Error deleting an item from Custom List in 2010

    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
