Limit on number of views shown in list web part

  Asked By: Jakob    Date: Jan 24    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 8337

We have some lists with a large number of views. Our users have found
that when they add a list view web part to a page, the drop down list
of views that they can select from when configuring the web part stops
at the 50th view. Someone has said there is a default query limit of
50 in SharePoint.

Does anyone know how this could be fixed/extended?

I think that this is a limit  to the number  of web  Parts that can be
placed onto a single page. If so, you can control that limit in the
SharePoint element of the web.config file.

The drop-down will limt to the views  to 50, but you can create a new view  on
the fly by "editing the current view".

Sorry, I misunderstood the question. I was describing the number  of List
View Web Parts that can be placed onto a page  rather than the number of
view a single List view  Web Part could choose from.

I had made the "edit the current view" suggestion to them, but it's
obviously not a great solution when someone has already done the
work to build a view.
