SYMPTOMS

When you try to access a Web page on your Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 Web site, you may receive the following error message:
An error occurred while processing data for this request. Contact the server administrator for more information

CAUSE

This problem may occur if all the following conditions are true:
  • The page contains a Data View that uses an XML file as a data source.
  • The name of XML file that is used as a data source for the Data View is changed.
  • The DefaultValue setting in the following line of code of the Web page that contains the Data View is not updated to reference the new name of the XML file, where XMLFileName.xml is the name of the XML file:
    <ParameterBinding Name="InputFile" Location="Connection" DefaultValue="XMLFileName.xml"/>
This problem occurs when you open your Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 Web site in Microsoft FrontPage and rename the XML file that is used as a data source for the Data View. Even though you click Yes when you are prompted to update the Web pages that have hyperlinks to the XML file, the DefaultValue setting in the following line of code of the Web pages are not updated correctly to the new name of the XML file:
<ParameterBinding Name="InputFile" Location="Connection" DefaultValue="XMLFileName.xml"/>

WORKAROUND

To work around this problem, follow these steps to manually update the DefaultValue setting in the following line of code of the Web pages:
<ParameterBinding Name="InputFile" Location="Connection" DefaultValue="XMLFileName.xml"/>
  1. Start FrontPage, and then open your Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 Web site.
  2. On the Folder List, double-click the Web page that contains the Data View.
  3. On the View menu, click Page (if it is not already selected), and then at the bottom of the page, click Code.
  4. Locate the following line of code, where XMLFileName.xml is the name of the XML file:
    <ParameterBinding Name="InputFile" Location="Connection" DefaultValue="XMLFileName.xml"/>
    Note You may want to use the Find and Replace tool to perform this step. When you use the Find and Replace tool, you can quickly locate and replace the name of the XML file on all Web pages on your Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 Web site that contain the Data View. To use the Find and Replace tool, right-click an empty area at the top of the page, and then click Find.
  5. Replace XMLFileName.xml with the correct name of the XML file.
  6. On the File menu, click Save.
  7. Quit FrontPage.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.

MORE INFORMATION

Data Views display data by using Extensible Language Transformations (XSLTs). When you use FrontPage to create or edit a Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 Web site, you can add Data Views that extract data from data sources, including XML files, Web services, SharePoint lists, and OLE database–compliant databases such as Microsoft SQL Server, DB2, and Oracle.

For more information about how to work with Data Views in FrontPage 2003, see FrontPage Help. To do so, on the Help menu, click Microsoft Office FrontPage Help. In the Search for box, type data views, and then press ENTER to view the topics returned.
