I have an external list which is using the BCS to pull data from a custom database. This database has several views which have the same column structure and several that do not. I have been adding ReadList operations for each view and then creating a new list view to display it. What i end up with is a single external list which has views based off the database views.
The problem i am having is that i cannot create working list views for any of the ReadList operations which use a different column structure in the database view. I realize this is because the ReadItem view does not contain the fields which are being displayed.
The error i actually get is: ""cannot be found in ViewGroup associated with SpecificFinder (Read Item) operation"
I am able to create a new ReadItem operation which uses the alternate column structure, but i am unable to figure out how to tell the specific List View to use the new Read Item rather than the other one. The only way I have gotten this to work is by creating a whole new list.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I would like to only use one list with multiple views, but how can i tell my list views to use a specific read item finder?
