SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

When I try to access the URL - http://sample.url.com/sites/SiteColl/SPE/_layouts/SubChoos.aspx, it throws the below error however it is working for the other subsites

What does SubChoos.aspx contain? how does it work normally? –  Deepu Nair Dec 7 '11 at 0:47
    
It will allow us to select the List/Lists to enable alerts. In my case, it throws the above mentioned error while accessing the page.. –  Karthikeyan Dec 7 '11 at 8:41
    
Is this list being referred from some other site? Is it the same page working for all other sites? –  Deepu Nair Dec 7 '11 at 8:56
    
have copied the subsite into the same site collection with a different name where it is working fine..Also, there a huge list with 5500+items, would that be an issue? –  Karthikeyan Dec 8 '11 at 14:13
    
Queries on large lists get throtlled / cancelled by the API. Perhaps the code behind subchoos.aspx has trouble querying the large list because of that. You could try raising the limits in Central Admin to rule that out. –  Jasper Dec 14 '11 at 10:55

I think the list may be corrupt with wrong settings, etc. Couple of things to look into -

  • A). Create a new (default) view of the list - using SP Designer
  • B). Delete the old (default) view of the list.

    If above still fails, then

  • C.) Forcefully delete the list using STSADM: stsadm.exe -o forcedeletelist -url

    or POSH Script:

    1. $fooweb = Get-SPWeb fooUrl
    2. $foolist = $fooweb.Lists["fooList"]
    3. $foolist.AllowDeletion = $true
    4. $foolist.Update()
    5. $foolist.Delete()
    6. $fooweb.Dispose()
  • D). Create/Copy new list.

I'm getting this error: ( $spweb.Lists["Feedback Board"] ).Delete() Exception calling "Delete" with "0" argument(s): "List does not exist. The page you selected contains a list that does not exist. It may have been deleted by another user." At line:1 char:42 + ( $spweb.Lists["Feedback Board"] ).Delete <<<< () + CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (:) [], MethodInvocationException + FullyQualifiedErrorId : DotNetMethodException –  Karthikeyan Dec 9 '11 at 16:24
    
Run SPM and check the existence (& AllowDeletion property) of the list. Check this forum post for a similar situation - sharepoint.stackexchange.com/questions/24904/… –  Supriyo SB Chatterjee Dec 9 '11 at 17:54
    
*SPM is SharePoint Manager - spm.codeplex.com –  Supriyo SB Chatterjee Dec 9 '11 at 18:02
    
Also verify that the Site Collection Administrators matches to perform the above tasks. –  Supriyo SB Chatterjee Dec 9 '11 at 22:41
    
1. Verified if it is allowed to delete - > $list.AllowDeletion (Result ->True) 2. Verified if it has unique permission - > $list.HasUniqueRoleAssignments (Result -> False) 3. Verified the Lookup columns and found nothing. 4. Verified if it is related to AAM and found it is not. 5. Verified the ULS and could not find more clue(verbose) 6. Used SPM to delete however it does not show this list. 7. Used SPD however it does not show this list. any clue? –  Karthikeyan Dec 12 '11 at 7:44

It can be an access related issue. Like, may be you dont have the proper privileges in the sub site to access the list or may be the page layout with which the page is created is not published or approved. I dont see this as a corrupted list, but a list which is not being accessible from this particular subsite due to some privilege issue.

I had this issue on publishing sites recently. It went away when I deactivated and reactivated the publishing feature at the site collection level.
