Error Exporting List

  Asked By: Faith    Date: Feb 05    Category: MOSS    Views: 1164

I have a user who for whatver reason cannot export a particular list. He
says he can export other lists on his site just fine. I was able to export
the lsit in question. We are running MOSS, I have Office 2007, and he has
Office 2003.

Any ideas on why he cannot export this partiuclar list or what I should look

What happens when he tries to export  the list? Is there an error  message,
or some other unexpected behavior?

Do you see anything in the SharePoint logs or the Windows Event Logs?

Sorry, it is "Can not get the list  scheme column property from the
sharepoint list"

Is there a custom date field in the list?

Answer #4    Answered By: Akanksha Jain     Answered On: Feb 05

Looking at closwer, he created the following columns:
- Due date (date Only)
- Start Date (Date Only)
- Created Date (Date Only)

& had Modified date enabled.

If he leaves out those columns, can he export  the list?

If so, consider one of the following workarounds:

1) Set the default value to Today.

2) Change the column type to text, and then back to date.

I'm not sure if this will be effective on a Date Only column, but this
sounds like a known issue with Office 2003 and WSS3 (with no solution
offered by Microsoft). If it's just the one user, consider upgrading him to
2007 to save yourself some headaches.

The deafult on 'Start Date' was set to 'today'. I changed that to 'none' as
the other dates were also set to 'none'. I left a VM with my user  to see if
this fixes the issue. If not,I will give #2 a go.

When I've had this issue in the past, here's what I did to fix it, and
didn't lose any data:

Go to each date field in the list, and change it to "single line of
text". Click OK. Then, change each one back to a Date/Time field.

Usually after this, the error  goes away. Microsoft has admitted this is
a bug.

I had a similar issue a few months ago where I did what you recommend, but
it wasn't with a Date column. But still need to hear from my user  on the
first attempt at fixing his export  issue.
