I have created an external list and external content type using SharePoint Designer. I need to search an item in the external list. So I configured search in central admin. I am able to search an item in the external list. But the search items are read only. Could you please suggest me how to edit the items.

  • When you configured the external content type and list did you ensure that you had the Update and Create operations enabled? ref: msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee558778.aspx – GavinB Dec 6 '11 at 22:05

  • From the search results page do you get a link to the display form for the item? Or are you trying to edit IN the search results? – GavinB Dec 7 '11 at 20:16
