Failed to query list data. An error occurred while parsing EntityName.

Jump to solution

I have created a site workflow to set item permissions on list items that meet certain criteria. However when I run the workflow I get the above error message.

The name of the list that this workflow runs on starts with a full stop. Is this likely to be the cause of the error?

Please let me know if you require any additional information.

We are using Nintex 2010 Standard forms and workflows.

do you mean it starts with period (.) characters?

if so then this is not supported by sharepoint - https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/905231/information-about-the-characters-that-you-cannot-use... 

‌ period character‌

Thanks Marian. The full stop/period was the cause of the problem. It through me a bit though as some workflows that didn't contain Query List actions would run on the list.

However removing the full stop removed the error for me.
