unknown error when changing the file properties in the document library setup using the look up field in moss 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    There is a very strange error that I get.

    I have a document library with the necessary fields and many connected look-up fields.


    Column Type Connected List name
    Document Title Single line of text  
    Document Type Lookup  
    Authors Person or Group  
    Functional Areas - Primary Connected Lookup Field List Name: Primary 1
    Sub-Functional Areas - Primary Connected Lookup Field List Name: Primary 1
    Functional Areas - Secondary Connected Lookup Field List Name: Secondary 2
    Sub-Functional Areas - Secondary Connected Lookup Field List Name: Secondary 2
    Industry Area - Primary Lookup List Name: Industry Primary
    Industry Area - Secondary Lookup List Name: Industry Secondary
    Document Description Multiple lines of text  
    Client Lookup List Name: Client Name
    Region Connected Lookup Field List Name: Regional
    Country Connected Lookup Field List Name: Regional 
    Date authored Date and Time  
    File Format Choice  
    IC source Lookup  
    Created By Person or Group  
    Modified By Person or Group  
    Checked Out To Person or Group

    When a file is uploaded I make the necessary changes to the file attribute above and save it. It does not give me any error.

    When I edit the file to make some changes in the attributes especially in the Region and Country field. The Country field is linked to the Region column. When I click on the Region field to choose another data, MOSS 2007 gives me an error "an unexpected error has occured".

    I have checked on the internet and found out nothing related to this. I have also changed the web.config file attributes as below

    <SafeMode MaxControls=“200“ CallStack=“false“…


    <SafeMode MaxControls=“200“ CallStack=“true“…

    You will also need to set custom errors to 'Off'.

    <customErrors mode=“Off“/>

     Please let me know whats to be done here
