I have a created a custom site column, which is a lookup field, on my rootsite. However, I use this colum now on a subsite in another list. The idea is, to have a central list with lets say Divisions, which I can use on every subsite.
The funny thing is, the NewForm.aspx shows me the content of the Divisions table:
After I create the new item the list looks just fine:
But, when I click one of the items in the column Divisions it runs into this error:
The error log says, that SharePoint couldn't find the list:
Exception information: Exception type: SPException Exception message: List does not exist. The page you selected contains a list that does not exist. It may have been deleted by another user. at Microsoft.SharePoint.SPGlobal.HandleComException(COMException comEx) at Microsoft.SharePoint.Library.SPRequest.GetListsWithCallback(String bstrUrl, Guid foreignWebId, String bstrListInternalName, Int32 dwBaseType, Int32 dwBaseTypeAlt, Int32 dwServerTemplate, UInt32 dwGetListFlags, UInt32 dwListFilterFlags, Boolean bPrefetchMetaData, Boolean bSecurityTrimmed, Boolean bGetSecurityData, Boolean bPrefetchRelatedFields, ISP2DSafeArrayWriter p2DWriter, Int32& plRecycleBinCount) at Microsoft.SharePoint.SPListCollection.EnsureListsData(Guid webId, String strListName)
What do you guys think is wrong here?
thanks for you help!
I found something which might be the issue but i don't have a clue how to solve it.
The link, which is created from the lookupcolumn, does not redirect to the other site! Sadly it stays on the same site i.e.
the "/cc/" is the name of the subsite. The correct link would look like this:
Its the same link without the /cc/.
Does anyone have an idea or workaround for this mislinking?
After installing the latest update of sharepoint the bug disappeared! Hope this helps!
