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

Ok so I seem to be the only administrator managing a SharePoint website on behalf of the Health Service. However being as it's linked to the government someone made this website for free. I also assume that he made some of the webparts himself.

One of these web parts was an FAQ webpart which enabled you to created FAQs with a fancy format. Now however whenever I try to make an FAQ I can select it and it will now be ready to edit. Now however when I go to modify it, it will take me to an Error Page which says:

"List does not exist

The page you selected contains a list that does not exist. It may have been deleted by another user. Troubleshoot issues with Windows SharePoint Services."

Does anyone know how to find out what the webpart is looking for. What the list is called so I can make another one to replace it? Tried looking in the ".Aspx" for the page but it doesnt keep any information on the webpart. Any ideas or pointers would be very greatful.

Below is some Web Part code from the FAQ.webpart file located in the designer website.

There could be seevral reasons for this:

  • Please go to the list, check the permission settings, make sure you have permission to the list.
  • Can you access the list directly using the URL?
  • You can find the list using the list GUID, type the this URL in browser: http://yourserver/_layouts/listedit.aspx?List={ceb31d57-dea6-4524-ba47-bf15f6f73d4a}, it will go to the list settings page and you can check the list settings.

By looking at the markup, It is content query webpart. It is looking for a list with GUID set in below property.

<property name="ListGuid" type="string">A72FB448-BAC3-4661-BEAB-F435E441AA1D</property>

The list should be under site with URL set in below property:

<property name="WebUrl" type="string">/sites/cerner</property>

Better, you create a new list in that site and update the GUID.

To find column names, Open the xsl in sharepoint designer or notepad from the path in below property and look for all <xsl:value-of select="{column names}" /> :

<property name="ItemXslLink" type="string">/Sites/cerner/Style Library/XSL Style Sheets/FAQItemStyle.xsl</property>
