Unable to delete a Column – Unknown Error Sharepoint

Posted: May 9, 2012 in Uncategorized

Issue : Just Today i came across an issue wherein the User had a List with multiple columns and One of the column Which was a look up column was corrupted, it used to give “Unknown Error” while renaming \deleting the column.

After a lot of research we found a work around on how to delete the Column.

Checked the Url and found that on the page where it is throwing “Unknown error” the URL was ending with  /_layouts/FldEditex.aspx?List=

Which is a wrong URL and it should be pointing to this /_layouts/FldEdit.aspx?List=

Just removed the “EX” from [FldEditex.aspx => FldEdit.aspx]

We were then able to edit and Delete it.
