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

I have installed SharePoint Server 2010 Enterprise Edition in Windows Azure. After successful installation and configuration,I created a web application. When I tried to activate SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure feature, Site Setting -> Site Collection Features - > SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure - > Activate, it gave me an error:

"Can not add a field without a Display Name."

enter image description here

I haven't explicitly added any lists or webparts to this site. Had tried to activate publishing feature on an blank site template.

Edit: Log entry tracked by correlation ID is:

My suggestion is to use PowerShell to retrieve all site columns and find what column does not have display name, after this you can fix this name. –  Alexander Jan 22 '13 at 12:05
    
Thanks this helped a lot. Few of my custom list fields were missing display name. Fixing that solved the problem. –  Suja Shyam Jan 25 '13 at 5:11
