Cannot Export to a Spreadsheet

  Asked By: Alec    Date: Sep 29    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1070

I'm in desperate need of help! I'm running WSS v3 + Office 2003. When
a user tries to "Export to a Spreadsheet", I get the following
message: "Cannot get the list schema column property from the
SharePoint list". Is there a workaround / solution to this?

try with someother machine which has office xp instead
of office 2003. Which helps to find out where exactly
the problem. I guess it is with office.

If it works you may need to reinstall or install all
the options of office2003.

I don't think putting Office XP back on my workstation is a viable
option. It should work with Office 2003. At least its supposed to.

But thank you for your comment.

Had this problem before…I came to the assumption that my user profile
had become corrupted on my laptop. Tried doing the same thing on
another workstation logged in with my domain account (it created a
new profile upon login) and I was able to export. I went back to my
laptop, logged in as admin, backup up parts of my profile I wanted to
restore, deleted my profile, and then re-logged in so it created a
new domain profile on my laptop…worked!

if this is the same situation with you, hopefully this helps

This would work if it wasn't that this happens to any user who logs
into WSS. And it seems to be for only one list. I've tried exporting
other lists into excel and it works just fine.
