I have created a content query web part to aggregate documents in document libraries within the site (not site collection). I am receiving this message:
Your query returned a greater number of results than the web application's query throttling limit. Please adjust the configuration of this Web Part or increase the throttling limit.
My filters are set up to return a small number of documents (definitely less than the 5K limit). For example, I have set up a filter to only return documents I've created [Today], which right now is only 2. I am still getting that message. There are 5 document libraries in the site. One of them does have over 8K items. Is this reason? If yes, why - if my filter should only return 2? How can I get this working?
