I have a list that seems to be acting oddly.

The list has 5 custom columns. 2 columns are text fields, the others are lookup fields.

When I view the list I see data in all 5 columns. When I edit a pre-existing item I see data only in the Title field.

When I add a new item I can add data to all columns. However, once I am back viewing the list view I only see the Title field data for this new item (pre-existing items still show as mentioned above). When I edit this new item I then can see all the data I originally entered.

Does anyone have any idea of what might be happening?

1 Answer 1


Multiple columns with the same label that aren't displayed in the same views/forms. Once we found that out we removed the unnecessary columns and made sure all columns were viewable in the views/forms.
