In the below code, I'm using SPServices library to get a list item's author's name.

                operation: "GetListItems",
                async: false,
                listName: "MyList",
                CAMLViewFields: "<ViewFields Properties='True' />",
                CAMLQuery: "<Query><Where><Eq><FieldRef Name='ID' /><Value Type='Integer'>" + id + "</Value></Eq></Where></Query>", 
                completefunc: function (xData, Status) {
                    $(xData.responseXML).find("[nodeName='z:row']").each(function() {

Only in IE7 and IE8, it returns null. $(xData.responseXML).find("[nodeName='z:row']").length equals to 0. In other browsers it works fine.

Any ideas?

Have you posted this on the SPServices forum on Codeplex (spservices.codeplex.com)?

I've never tried to use the Properties='True' attribute for ViewFields with SPServices. Do you get the same behavior if you remove that? The rest of your script looks correct.


Turns out IE7 recognizes my site's URL different than the other browsers. Re-creating the site solved the problem.
