Ok, I'm stumped on this and I'll try to give as much information as possible. We are in Office 365 and have been able to recreate this issue in Chrome as well as IE.
We have a form that has the following fields:
There are Save as Draft, Cancel, Save and Submit buttons.
When some users submit sometimes (not consistent) they receive the following error:
Progression of events:
These chain of events don't seem to make total sense. User 3's problem can't be the same as user 1's since user 1 couldn't even submit a blank form. Thoughts? Things don't seem to 100% add up unless I'm missing something.
Solved! Go to Solution.
The lookup is a Nintex form control that looks up a particular view of another SharePoint list. You can connect it to a column to store the selections someone has made, essentially. The only type of column it will allow you to "connect" to is a single line of text which has a 255char limit. Since the list the lookup is referencing can have some somewhat lengthy titles and people can choose many, when it tries to store the selected items in the single line of text field (ex thing1,thing2,thing3,thing4) the character limit can be exceeded.
I can't just leave the data in the lookup control, however, it needs to be in a column so that I can act on it with workflow. I haev a workflow, that when the item is saved (these are meeting minutes) it looks at the lookup selections (which are "requests" or topics) and on each of those requests, it writes a link to the meeting minutes that were just saved so that people can open a request and go straight to any meeting minutes that discussed it.
This was it! Perfect! Thank you so much. Here's what I did:
I was wondering if you would be willing or able to describe a little more what you did here. I'm having a similar problem with a Sql Request control. The possible selections are fairly lengthy and the user wants the ability to use a multi select check box. Problem hits when I go over the 255 character limit the form crashes when they you hit save. What control did you use to do a xml query on the form data? I've only known to do xml queries as part of the workflow. Unfortunately the form will blow up before I can get the workflow started.
