I'm using SharePoint 2010 Foundation with LINQ for SharePoint list. I've generate my DataContext using spmetal command.

Now I'm trying to access data but I have this error:

ArgoumentException error: Value does not fall within the expected range.

This is the code that crash:

        using (DataContext context = new DataContext(SPContext.Current.Web.Url))
            List<MyListFieldsContentType> tasks = context.Task.Where(x => x.Code.Id == id).ToList();

I think that the problem is with .ToList() command because without .toList() I haven't error.

More details about error:

Value does not fall within the expected range. at Microsoft.SharePoint.SPFieldMap.GetColumnNumber(String strFieldName, Boolean bThrow) at Microsoft.SharePoint.SPListItemCollection.GetColumnNumber(String groupName, Boolean bThrowException) at Microsoft.SharePoint.SPListItemCollection.GetRawValue(String fieldname, Int32 iIndex, Boolean bThrow) at Microsoft.SharePoint.SPListItem.GetValue(SPField fld, Int32 columnNumber, Boolean bRaw, Boolean bThrowException) at Microsoft.SharePoint.SPListItem.GetValue(String strName, Boolean bThrowException) at Microsoft.SharePoint.SPListItem.get_Item(String fieldName) at Microsoft.SharePoint.Linq.PropertyMap.GetSPFieldValue(PropertyMap pm, SPListItem item, JoinPath joinPath) at Microsoft.SharePoint.Linq.PropertyMap.GetFromListItem(DataContext dc, SPListItem item, Object entity, JoinPath joinPath) at Microsoft.SharePoint.Linq.SPItemMappingInfo.MaterializeEntity[TEntity](DataContext dc, SPDataList list, SPListItem item, SPItemMappingInfo itemMappingInfo, JoinPath joinPath) at lambda_method(ExecutionScope , SPListItem ) at System.Linq.Enumerable.WhereSelectEnumerableIterator2.MoveNext() at System.Collections.Generic.List1..ctor(IEnumerable1 collection) at System.Linq.Enumerable.ToList[TSource](IEnumerable1 source) at Acm.DataAccessLayer.Acquisition.LinqDalAcquisitionTask.GetByAcquisitionId(Int32 id) at AcquisitionTool.Layouts.AcquisitionTool.AllAcquisitionsGantt.GetChartData()

Please, can you help me?

  • You can use the data.Configuration.LazyLoadingEnabled = false; before getting the data using .ToList()

  • Hi, I tried but without success. I've added this code: context.DeferredLoadingEnabled = false;

It might possible that lookup fields were omitted from the query results because the list exceeds the lookup column threshold.

To solve it, go to Central Administrator -> Application management -> Manage Web Applications select one, then on top General Settings -> Resource Throttling there change default (8) List View Lookup Threshold value to a bigger one, in my case 12 was the lowest accepted value.

That's it! It might solve your issue...!

You can get SharePoint List items using below mentioned code.

// Get DataContext from page context
using (DataContext context = new DataContext(SPContext.Current.Web.Url))

        // Get the SharePoint list
        EntityList<Task> Customers = data.GetList<Task>("Task");

        var Tasks = from customer in Customers
                              where customer.Id == id
                              select customer;

        foreach (var Task in Tasks)
            Console.Writeline("id = {0}, Task.CustomerId);
  • Hi, I've tried but I obtain the same error in: var Task.
