This article describes the issues that are fixed in the Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2010 hotfix package that is dated July 8, 2014.


Issues that this hotfix package fixes

  • You may receive an "The attempted operation is prohibited because it exceeds the list view threshold enforced by the administrator." error when you create a custom NewForm for a list by using SharePoint Designer 2010 and try to add items by using the custom NewForm.

  • When you edit a SharePoint wiki page, and then you add double square brackets ([[) to create a wiki link, the pointer may jump away from the square brackets.

  • Assume that you set the welcome page of a SharePoint 2010 site to point to a page that is located on a subsite of the root site. When you browse to the root site by using a mobile device, the welcome page does not open. Additionally, you receive the “Unknown SPRequest Error 80070001” error, and you are redirected to an error page.

  • After you install SharePoint Server 2010 Service Pack 2 and the December 2013 cumulative update, you cannot edit the existing web parts in SharePoint Designer. Specifically, assume that you add a new column to XsltListView (DataView) Web Part in a SharePoint page in SharePoint Designer, when you save and open the SharePoint page, the new column does not save.

  • Assume that you export a custom list to the site gallery in a SharePoint 2010 site, and then you add the custom list as a List View Web Part to a SharePoint page. In this situation, you cannot add more List View Web Parts to the page. Additionally, you receive an error message that resembles the following:

    List does not exist.
    The page you selected contains a list that does not exist. It may have been deleted by another user.

  • Consider the following scenario:

    • You add a document to a SharePoint document library, and then start a workflow on the document.

    • You add the document library as a List View Web Part to another SharePoint page.

    • You click the link to the workflow in the workflow status column.

    In this scenario, the workflow does not open. Instead, you receive an error message that resembles the following:

    An unexpected error has occurred.

  • Consider the following scenario:

    • You create a new SharePoint calendar list and add a new custom People or Group field where the Allow multiple selections option is set as Yes.

    • You set the SharePoint alerts for all changes on the calendar list.

    • You add a new calendar list item, and then you add some users to the custom field. Then you receive the SharePoint alert.

    In this scenario, the custom field in the alert does not show any value.

  • Consider the following scenario:

    • You enable the Create major and minor (draft) versions option for a SharePoint 2007 document library.

    • You have a document that has a major version and one or more minor versions in the library.

    • You perform a database migration to upgrade SharePoint 2007 to SharePoint 2010.

    In this scenario, you may lose the data that is stored in the minor versions.
