Is there a maximum limit to site columns?

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#
I am trying to re-publish an infopath form that currently has 8 site columns specified.  I am trying to add one more column, but each time I attempt ot add a column I get the message, "The selected group does not have any remaining site columns for use".  I can't find any reference to this error message.

What is the limit I am reaching?

We are using MOSS2007 and InfoPath 2007.

The file reached the maximum download limit. Check that the full text of the document can be meaning



I'm facing an issue with the indexing.

I have 1 WFE+Index server+DB server.

Index server is not installed with MS FIlter pack 1.0

When crawling, the there will be document with warning in crawl log:
The file reached the maximum download limit. Check that the full text of the document can be meaningfully crawled.

Documents that with warning are such as doc, ppt, xls, docs, ppts and many others.
However, I view into the successful crawled document, there are doucments with ext doc and ppt.

For large file index, there are MaxGrowthFactor + MaxDownLoadSize required to be added into the index server.

As my understanding is, MS Filter Pack should installed into index server(already did, correct me if i'm wrong).

I looked into the Office SharePoint Seach(CA>Services in farm), if the server is appointed to "Use this server as indexing server", then MS Filter Pack is suppose to be installed into that particular server as well.

At the bottom, there also has another option is "Use all web front end for crawling".

The question here is, IF the option "Use all web front end for crawling" is selected.
Does the WED FRONT END Server required to installed the Ms Filte

Duplicate Fields during list creation from content types and site columns


I am trying to create a List in Sharepoint 2010 using Site Columns and Content Types. It results in creating duplicate fields in the list for the Site Columns used. Here is the details description of what I was doing.

I have created two site columns 


<Field Type="Number" DisplayName="Start Coordinate" Required="TRUE" EnforceUniqueValues="FALSE" Indexed="FALSE"
Group="QMS" ID="{A3F2D108-11B5-4B49-9633-338D27227E12}"
Name="StartCoordinate" Overwrite="TRUE" />

<Field Type="Number" DisplayName="End Coordinate" Required="TRUE" EnforceUniqueValues="FALSE" Indexed="FALSE"
Group="QMS" ID="{06B927BB-C354-4A0A-AE88-9C14E55EAB27}"
Name="EndCoordinate" Overwrite="TRUE" />

Then added these to a new content type I

Upgrade to 2010 with corrupt site columns


Hope someone can help, have exhausted all googled solutions.

Recently upgraded from Moss 2007- ent to 2010 ent using database attach method, the only outstanding problem is with a custom site column type from codeplex -filtered lookup.

  1. When trying to access the site columns/ mngfields.aspx from the ui/sharepoint designer or  SharePoint manager I get the error- Field type FilteredLookup is not installed properly. Go to the list settings page to delete this field  -  or some variation
  2. When I try to view the site columns based on the 'filtered lookup type' using power-shell I cannot access them, zero return, yet can view all the other site columns (using names from the 2007 box)

So if the columns are not there where is the reference that is causing the problem and how to fix?.

Have been thru every site and list and deleted the offending columns, but surely this does not have any effect on the site columns mngmt page?

I don't want to remove the type from the 2007 server as this is our working model


MMS & Tags & Site Columns oh my hee hee ha ha ho ho


Feel like I'm missing something big and obvious.

Is it possible (and, advisable) to create a Site Column that is linked to Managed Metadata and then to have that automatically always be a column on all content?

I've been through creating it, and adding it to e.g. a list via Add from Existing Site Column, but that would require that everyone who uses a list remember and then take the time to actually add it.

Can't one make it an automagic field, like Created, Modified By, etc?


SSRS 2008 log file - maximum memory limit

What does it mean by maximum memory  limit is 2097152Mb?

I have set the maximum memory limit for SSRS to 5 GB.

Add a field to site columns using Client Object Model



I am having an issue when trying to add a field to the web.AvailableFields.  I am using web.AvailableFields.AddFieldAsXml(...)  but it seem that you need to associate the field with a list.  Is it not possible to add a field to the site collection columns using the client object model?

What I am doing is creating a content type and then adding fields to this content type, if the fields dont exist I what to create them but an having a problem doing so.

Customizing the StartDate/EndDate DateTime Site Columns


I was wondering if it is possible to customize the StartDate/EndDate DateTime columns in SharePoint to behave similarly to ASP.Net Calendar controls.  That is to say, I would like the ability to filter out dates which should not be eligible for selection.  For example, for certain lists, I would like to only allow the user the ability to select dates which are neither weekends, nor holidays. 

Currently, the DateTime column only allows a limited set of criteria for setting date values which is not sufficient for my needs.

Please let me know how to accomplish this (preferably in SharePoint 2007, but a SharePoint 2010 solution is also welcome).


The number of calls to the Changed event for a single update in the data exceeded the maximum limit.


Dear All,

We have hit the big limit of 16 change events per single update.  Is there any way to extend this to say 25, we are not using infinate loops or anything.

Alternatively, is it possible to disable some change events when values are updated?
