Column ContentType does not exist.It may have been deleted by another user while adding/updating the list item RRS feed

  • Question

  • Need some taught/help here.

    I have taken the list template from WSS 2007 and then uploaded the same to the SharePoint 2013. That too after changing the ProductVersion from 3 to 4. After the list was successfully created using the same template,when am trying to add / edit the list item I got this error. “Column ‘ContentType’ does not exist.It may have been deleted by another user.”

    I have created a Contentype column as suggested in blogs but this only works if i create a new item and then try to save or edit it

    but doesnt work on exisitng items that that was created using the template.

    I can view item but when i click edit i get this error:

        Application error when access /sites/dev/Lists/xxx/EditForm.aspx, Error=Value cannot be null.   at Microsoft.SharePoint.Utilities.SPUtility.GetProviderName(String fullName)     at Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.Claims.SPClaimEncodingManager.IsEncodedClaim(String value)     at Microsoft.SharePoint.WebControls.PickerEntity.get_Claim()

  • A directly way to do this is to copy the existing items to new item using client or server object model code, and delete the original items.

  • I have same issue, and creating "ContentType" column for each list created using that list template is not a good idea. Is there any other solution for this? I've migrated the list templates from 2007 to 2013 and changed the product version.
