I have created a DVWP using sharepoint designer 2007, it renders fine. However, it throws "unable to display the webpart, troubleshoot with sharepoint designer" when I check-out and save the page even without any modification. What could be the issue, how it be solved.

Note: Am using XSL link for the template.

Sometimes this happens when the context is different between SharePoint Designer and the browser. By this I mean that the relative URLs aren't resolving the same. Try to get the XSL to work inline first, and then move it to the xsl:import.

actually, am using the complete path for the XSL,anyhow will with the inline XSL once again. – Karthikeyan May 18 '11 at 0:21
I found the issue and it is SharePoint removes the "../" from the relative path whenever the page edited through the SharePoint the fix is..Once you are done with the customization using SharePoint designer, you may need to change the XSL path link url through the browser... – Karthikeyan May 27 '11 at 2:27
