Kindly assist,when attaching a document in sharepoint 2016 list i get an error message: Attachment field cannot be updated...but am able to attach in other different lists in our sharepoint 2016. It is this particular list that gives an error. Thank you.enter image description here

  • Did you check whether in the advanced settings of this list the Attachments are disabled? – Celophysis Jun 13 '18 at 13:50
  • Attachments are enabled in the advanced settings.., it has been working well all along. now it's failing with this error. – user65472 Jun 14 '18 at 7:21
  • I see. Then my next assumption that perhaps a custom field named Attachments has been added to the list is also not useful, isnt't it?. All I have seen about this issue is that many people run into such cases without solution. Most of them have just rebuilt the library :-/ – Celophysis Jun 14 '18 at 7:48
  • Have you investigated ULS logs form more information about the error? – Marek Sarad Jun 14 '18 at 9:47
  • I reversed the Rating Settings-(not to be rate) for the List and now am able to attach. Thank you – user65472 Jun 15 '18 at 9:50
