I have a list view web part in a site page. The view has two site columns. I am getting this error when I access the site page:

Site Page Error

Unable to display this Web Part. To troubleshoot the problem, open this Web page in a Microsoft SharePoint Foundation-compatible HTML editor such as Microsoft SharePoint Designer. If the problem persists, contact your Web server administrator.

Correlation ID:f071009d-8d2e-b04f-2483-ea487d2a7935

ULS Log for the Correlation ID

InnerException 1: Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.ResourceNotFoundException: List does not exist. The page you selected contains a list that does not exist. It may have been deleted by another user.

If I remove the site columns from the view, the page has no errors.

Any ideas on what's causing this?

    Is one of the columns maybe a lookup column? If so make sure nothing is wrong with the list it references Commented Apr 26, 2015 at 9:19
  • Yes both are lookup fields. However I created a new custom list and added these two site columns. Added a new site page and the list view works fine. I guess the lookup wiring is ok.

I had the same problem when I deployed the site on staging to production using site template, I was able to resolve the problem through following approach:

  1. Identify which web part is corrupted by removing the webpart from the page in maintenance mode. e.g. http://siteurl/Sites/yoursite/pages/home.aspx?contents=1

  2. Export the webpart and open in notepad. Check the following line.

     <property name="ListId" type="System.Guid, mscorlib, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089">
  3. I found that the list id was mismatching. I replaced the list id with correct list id.

  4. Replace the id every where in the .WebPart file.

    webpartpages:DataFormParameter ParameterKey="ListID" PropertyName="ParameterValues" DefaultValue="{D8C4G5A2-17A5-4804-A644-6EB4528DCA42}

  5. Replace the weburl every where

    webpartpages:DataFormParameter ParameterKey="weburl" PropertyName="ParameterValues" DefaultValue="/sites/YourSite"

  6. Save the file. Go to Edit the page and upload it.

  7. After uploading you can add the web part into page.
