Issue attempting to create a Custom List Form where Calculated Fields exist in the Source List after upgrading to WSSv3 v12.0.0.6565 RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have currently moved to a new x64bit Server. In addition to this we have upgraded Windows SharePoint Services 3 x32 v12.0.0.6421 to x64 v12.0.0.6565.

    The issue I am having is, when creating a List with a Calculated Field in it (1 or more), if I try and create a custom aspx page using a Custom List Form, nothing is rendered. SPD just does nothing. If I remove the Calculated Fields, everything works normally.

    Previously, before the Server upgrade and SharePoint upgrade there was no issue.

    Also, interestingly enough, when I open a page previously created on the old Server and SharePoint, i receive this error where the Custom List Form should be:

    "The server returned a non-specific error when trying to get data from the data source. Check the content of your query and try again. If the problem persists, contact the server administrator."

    I have searched in vain for an answer to this issue. Is their an issue with the upgrade from x32 v12.0.0.6421 to x64 v12.0.0.6565? Can it be resolved? This is a very critical issue as we develop and host SharePoint sites for Consumers and this is causing us issues should sites need to be modified or created.

  • Hello,

    Did the server name change when you moved to new x64 server? If yes, then all references to data sources needs to change accordingly.

    I tested this at the same 64 bit build ( and didn’t have any issues however I wasn’t able to test with an upgraded site.

    Could you try to replicate the issue on a new site and see if you are able to?
