Issue on saving using datasheet view RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    My list contains few mutiple selection metadata columns.
    When I edit the document properties using data sheet view, the below specified error is displayed.
    "Changes to the current row cannot be saved due to invalid data or missing data in required fields"
    This error is displayed even if all the required columns are filled in.
    What are the possible reasons for it failing and how to resolve this?

    Thanks,
    dhijit

  • This is one of the limitations of Datasheet View, I believe. You'll need to use the standard view to edit the document properties.

    Also take a look at https://sp2010batchedit.codeplex.com/, which might help.

  • This is a Datasheet view limitation, as well as the inability to edit any custom columns.

    Please check out KWizCom's List in-line editor solution:

    http://www.kwizcom.com/sharepoint-add-ons/list-in-line-editor/overview/

    It enables you to bulk-edit data rows in-line (so you do not have to leave your list view), enables editing custom columns and you can also copy & paste data rows from Excel.
