This problem appears only on one particular Document Library. I use

TaxonomyField.SetFieldValue(myItem, myTaxonomyFieldValue);

and it works fine everywhere except this lib. Can anyone suggest a workaround?

IF everything has been setup properly:

  • Added an extra note field to the schema.xml for each Taxonomy field
  • Changed the throttling settings

AND everything stated in this article is clear and okey-dokey:

then I would suggest to check this:

  • open site collection content type using SharePoint Web Interface:
  • site settings
  • site content types
  • open the content type
  • In the Columns list open the column giving the error
  • Modify site column
  • Edit the term set column setting
  • save

I am seeing exactly the same issue, except I am getting these errors when trying to set values through the browser too.

I've solved this issue in a quite awkward manner. Just created a new DocLib and moved all content in it. – Dmitriy Inozemtsev May 16 '13 at 15:15
