  • Hi Lewis,

    One of option while updating the content types is If you want to Update all content types inheriting from this type? which is defaulted to Yes

    Basically Document Content Type is a parent to a lot of other content types , and few of them are sealed and cannot be changed. So selecting the above option to Yes will not let you proceed and will cause you this error.

    Set the option to No

  • Dear Lhan,

    Thanks for reply, the problem is select the option to no make no changes after click "OK". I really have no errors, but have no actions either. Moreover, If the option works, it seem to apply only to those going to be upload to the sharepoint site, but not all those existing which I'm sure I need to update it all. Please kindly advise. Thanks.

    Best Regards,
