Error message when you click an item that is opened by a tag in an external list in SharePoint Server 2010: "Unexpected error occurred"


Consider the following scenario:
  • You have an external list on a server that is running Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010.
  • You choose an item in the external list, you click Tags and Notes on the Items tab, and then you save a tag to the item.
  • You click My Profile, you click Tags and Notes, and then you click the tag that you saved.

In this scenario, the external list item is displayed. However, when you click the item, you receive the following error message:
Unexpected error occurred.


There is no workaround or resolution for this problem.
