SharePoint Error Craziness: Volume 2

Monday, February 2nd, 2009

Continuing in my lovely series of SharePoint Error Craziness, we'll move onto yet another obscured error message that really doesn't explain what is going on.

The error is:
One or more field types are not installed properly. Go to the list settings page to delete these fields.

This error is actually the result of not providing the *internal* name for SharePoint while creating your CAML. What most would provide (including myself pre-knowing this) is the "friendly" name. A very easy resolution once you actually know what is going on, but something that can easily burn a few hours trying to figure it out. Hopefully I will prevent some of you from having to do so.

Frustrated SharePointin' Tom Out.
