I'm using the SPServices GetListItems function to pull entries from a calendar list. All of the information is being retreived without any issues. However the RowLimit is not restricting the number of items being returned.

camlQuery = "<Query>"
                +"<CalendarDate>" + calendarDate + "</CalendarDate>
                        +"<FieldRef Name='EventDate' />"
                        +"<FieldRef Name='EndDate' />"
                        +"<FieldRef Name='RecurrenceID' />"
                        +"<Value Type='DateTime'>Month</Value>"
                    +"<FieldRef Name='EventDate' />"
  • You need to make sure that the Web application associated with the site does not have a row limit more than what you expect. Oct 8, 2014 at 15:01

In the SPServices library, you just need to add an option like this in your GetListItems configuration:

CAMLRowLimit: 6

Marc then tacks this onto the appropriate place in the dynamically built CAML query to get your data.


Your <RowLimit> tag is inside <Query> tag which is wrong, it should be out side the <Query> and inside <View>.

Try below

camlQuery = "<View><Query><CalendarDate>" + calendarDate + "</CalendarDate><Where><DateRangesOverlap><FieldRef Name='EventDate' /><FieldRef Name='EndDate' /><FieldRef Name='RecurrenceID' /><Value Type='DateTime'>Month</Value></DateRangesOverlap></Where><OrderBy><FieldRef Name='EventDate' /></OrderBy></Query><RowLimit>6</RowLimit></View>";
SPQuery query = new SPQuery();
query.RowLimit = 10;
SPListItemCollection items = list.GetItems(query);
  • Love it when the simple answers work.

Can you try this CAMLRowLimit,

$(document).ready(function() {
    var idquery="<Query><OrderBy><FieldRef Name='ID' Ascending='False' /></OrderBy></Query>";
        operation: "GetListItems",
        async: false,
        listName: "test",
        CAMLQuery: idquery,
        CAMLRowLimit: 1,
        completefunc: function (xData, Status) {
        $(xData.responseXML).SPFilterNode("z:row").each(function() {
        var getvalue= parseInt($(this).attr("ows_Title"))+1;//Auto increment value
