SharePoint error – “Another user has changed the structure of this list”July 15, 2009
Recently while working on a recent SharePoint project, we ran into a problem when multiple users were editing a list item in the Datasheet view. We started seeing the following error below:
After searching online I found some solutions that recommended removing check-box columns from the view, however this did not work for me. I eventually opened up a case with Microsoft Services Premier Support (thanks Josh!) and we finally tracked this down to another column that contained a comma in the hyperlink URL (to a pdf drawing in another library):
Renamed the pdf drawing to not include the comma, added the updated hyperlink to the list item and no more error when editing other fields in a datasheet! This was pre SP2, so I don’t know if the issue still exists after installing SP2 or any cumulative rollups.
