Had seen similar post but I think SP raise the error broadly. Tried work around / solution from other post but its not going anywhere.

We are branding master page and css file in fresh server when the error pops up. Tried to restore working backup and for some point it end on same error.

Done checking database files:


wss_content: 42GB wss_content_log: 4GB

sharepoint_config: 325MB sharepoint_config_log: 784KB

There is no issue checking in/out file and even creating a fresh one. Then error trigger when the file get updated.

Tried iisreset, clear SPD cache and delete GUID files... wit ends.

enter image description here

  • There is vs web parts but nothing was updated in master page and control itself. Mainly we are dealing with CSS file when error trigger. Tried restoring full content backup, in 4-5 saving (with minor css or html element change) it all end in same error.

  • Please get log entries from the ULS log when you attempt to save the file.

  • Hi, ULS log added. This is recurring message I notice when error encountered. "SQL error code from last error 220 - Arithmetic overflow error for data type smallint, value = 32768."
