i'm trying to retrieve data from Sharepoint using SPServices. I created a list called "values" with two field: "Title" (text field) and "values" (numeric field).

I created a js file linked to a Content Editor Web Part and used this script:

    <script type="text/javascript" src="/jquery-2.1.4.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="/jquery.SPServices-2014.02.js"></script>
<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">

$(document).ready(function() {
    operation: "GetListItems",
    async: false,
    listName: "values",
    CAMLViewFields: "<ViewFields><FieldRef Name='Title' /></ViewFields>",
    completefunc: function (xData, Status) {
      $(xData.responseXML).SPFilterNode("z:row").each(function() {
        var liHtml = "<li>" + $(this).attr("ows_Title") + "</li>";
<ul id="tasksUL"/>

When I charge the page I have no result. I tried to put an alert of XData.responseXML and it return "Undefined".

How can I resolve it?

  • I would check the case of your list name, try Values. Also emitting XData would be wrong, you'd want xData.responseXML, case sensitivity in JS is important. – Eric Alexander Jul 14 '15 at 16:51
  • Thank you, I checked it. The name of the list is lowercase (values) – user2277798 Jul 14 '15 at 17:06
  • Are your references to jquery and spservices correct? Do your browser tools indicate any errors? – Eric Alexander Jul 14 '15 at 18:48
  • Yes, references are correct. My browser doesn't indicate anything. Blank page! – user2277798 Jul 15 '15 at 7:25
  • Are there any errors in the console? In Chrome on windows use F12 to show these developer tools. – Jan Jouke Tjalsma Jul 16 '15 at 11:56

Check your jQuery and SPServices version libraries. I received the same error when using new versions of both libraries. I didn't receive the error using the older versions.

Error Libraries: jquery-1.12.3.js jquery.SPServices-2014.02.min.js

Non-Error Libraries: jquery-1.8.3.js jquery.SPServices-0.7.1a.min.js
