getting error when trying to reply to a discussion list in sharepoint


  • We have a SharePoint site for some of our users to discuss certain topics. Lately when a new post is added no one with any type of permission on any computer can reply to it. After typing in the reply and hitting the reply button a popup comes up stating Value does not fall within the expected range.

    What could be causing this to happen and how can I fix it. Older posts are still working fine and can still be replied to. First time I have seen this error before.

  • Hello,

    sounds like there is some kind of data validation going on and a value in a field does not match the rules. Check the discussion list's  columns and see if there is any data validation set up.

    cheers, teylyn

  • Hey,

    So I don't know why I thought it was a 2010 version of sharepoint, but its 2013. Found the hotfix that Microsoft put out for the issue. Thank you for your response.
