Unable to display this Web Part

Posted By:      Posted Date: December 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Hello All,

The system is working fine for all users, except of one user who gets the following error whenever he opens up a data-view web-part page of a particular form library: 

Unable to display this Web Part. To troubleshoot the problem, open this Web page in a Windows SharePoint Services-compatible HTML editor such as Microsoft Office SharePoint Designer. If the problem persists, contact your Web server administrator

Now any page which contains the data-view of this form library shows this error instead of the content of the webpart. This is working for all other users except of one user. What possibly be the issue. 

Its driving me crazy, can anyone help me in this regard?

Unable to display this Web Part.


Hello together.

Me i Have exactly the same troubles like the two persons in the thread: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en/sharepoint2010customization/thread/ad13e5e4-e211-453f-bfef-fe260591154a


I would like to ask, if theres a upper limit of columns, so that you can still make a customized EditForm.aspx in Sharepoint Designer, which is working properly. Is there any workaround to get this problem solved? Any tipps would be greatly appreciated, because theres a presentation of a sharepoint 2010 application i am coding on in my company very soon. So for me its urgent to do this customization.

Kind Regards

In data view web part - how to display document name with link that opens lookup document rather tha

I have a list with a lookup column to create relationships with documents in a separate library. I am creating a data view web part to display each item in the list. One of the fields I want to display is the document field (the lookup column). I want this to be in the form of the related document's name with link to directly open the source document itself (Word, PPT, ...). Now I am only managing to display the document name linked to opening the document's display form of the related document library, and then I have to click the document's name there to open it. Alas one unnecessary click too many. Any wize tips? Henning

Using a List View web part to display documents from multiple document libraries from different site

Hi there, I am trying to have one web part display documents (or list items) from different document libraries (or different lists) from different site collections. I have achieved this under a single site collection using Data View Web Part (using SPD). I have also achieved displaying a single document library (or a list) from a different site collection by using List View Web Part. but I am not sure how to get my head around displaying documents or list items from different document libraries or lists across site collections. I have thought of using SPSiteDataQuery or ListViewByQuery, but they all seem to focus one site collection at a time. If any of you have done this before, please share your best practice on this one with me. Much appreciated. Clark

VS 2010 unable to edit or display xaml files.


I am having a problem using the editor for xaml files in Visual Studio 2010.

I have used Visual Studio 2005 and 2008 for many years.  Over the last year or more I have been constructing and maintaining a Silverlight application, editing both the xaml code and using the design mode.  I am quite familiar with it and it worked fine.

However we recently installed several copies of Visual Studio 2010 as trial versions and since it seemed OK we converted to the full version.  However now I am having trouble viewing xaml files in the editor, in either the design mode or as text. 

Double clicking on a xaml file in the Solution Explorer, which should start the xaml editor, now does very little, leaving the main screen blank. The file seems to be open since it is listed in the list of open files in the 'Windows' drop down menu.  If I ask it to reload the file it says it is already open and do I want to close it before continuing.  But it is not accessible or visible.

Right clicking on a xaml file and selecting 'Open with..' shows the 'Automatic Editor Selector' is selected as default.  If I select 'Text Editor' I can at least see and edit the xaml code.  But I can not see the design mode.  If I select 'Windows Presentation Foundation Designer with encoding' from the 'Op

Unable to sort RSS feed in Web Part or SP Designer 2007

I have an RSS Moss 2007 webpart to display feeds from http://www.fujitsu.com/uk/news/pr/uk-news-pr-rss.rss but the feed is coming in reverse date order.
