Create Content Type and add to SharePoint list with Powershell RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I created PowerShell Script, that install custom content type and create custom Lists in SharePoint Online site.

    The content type contains calculated column and If I want to add the content type to the Generic List I get error: 

    Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.ServerException: The formula contains a syntax error or is not supported by the system.

    $list.ContentTypesEnabled = $True
    $newListCT = $list.ContentTypes.AddExistingContentType($newContentType)

    If I add the content type in the browser to the list, then it works fine.

    My SharePoint tenant language is Hungarian, maybe there is a problem?

    Please help!

  • Hi Mykie,

    Did you add the formula in the calculated column?

    If so, you could check if the formula is correct in the calculated column.

    And you also create a new calculated column in one list and add the same formula into the new calculated column to check if it can work.

    Best regards,
