Troubleshoot connecting Web Parts

Archived content. No warranty is made as to technical accuracy. Content may contain URLs that were valid when originally published, but now link to sites or pages that no longer exist.

I can't make a connectionbetween two Web Parts.

Possible reasons include the following:

  • You are browsing theWeb Part Page. You can only make connections between Web Parts when you aredesigning the page. To design the page, click the Web Part Page menu, and then click Design this Page .

  • For security or performance reasons, the siteadministrator may have disabled Web Part connections on this site. In this case, the Connections submenu is not available.

  • The maximum number ofconnections for a connection type, such as Get Image From , has been reached. If possible, select another connectiontype, or remove a connection.

  • You may not have the appropriate permission to create WebPart connections.

  • The Connections submenu of the Web Part you are connecting from ishidden. This can occur if the Web Part zone does not allow you to make Web Part connections.

  • You are not using the correct browser. You must useInternet Explorer version 5.5 or later to make a connection between WebParts.

  • You receive the message "The connection cannot be saved atthis time. Try again later." In this case, the site server is busy. Try makingthe connection again when the site server is not busy. Also, check to see if your SharePoint quota has been exceeded.

  • There are no otherWeb Parts on the page that are compatible with this Web Part. The Web Partdeveloper has created the Web Part so that only certain types of connectionsare supported.

For assistance, contact the site administrator or Web Partdeveloper.

I can't delete ormodify a Web Part connection.

Possible reasons include the following:

  • You are only browsingthe Web Part Page. You can delete or modify connections between Web Parts only whenyou are designing the page.

  • You may not have permission to deleteor modify Web Part connections. The Web Part developer or site administratordoes not want connections to be modified or deleted on this Web Part Page.

  • You are not using the correct browser. You must use Internet Explorerversion 5.5 or later to delete a connection between Web Parts.

  • Theconnection between two Web Parts is broken. You or another user deleted ordisabled a Web Part after you made a connection to it.

  • The Web Part connection was created inanother program. You cannot delete or modify this connection through thebrowser. To delete or modify this connection, you must use an HTML editor compatible with ,such as Microsoft .

  • The Web Part you are trying to connect to is astatic Web Part. To modify this connection, you must use acompatibleHTML editor, such as Microsoft .

  • A column in the Create/Edit Connection dialog box is not available. Youattempted to modify a connection and the previous column selected no longerexists in the Column list because the list of columns waschanged by another user. Select another column.

Forassistance, contact your site administrator or the Web Part developer.

TheConnections submenu is hidden or unavailable.

Possible reasons include the following:

  • You are not using the correct browser. You must useInternet Explorer version 5.5 or later to create, modify, or delete a connection between WebParts.

  • The Web Part you are trying to connect from does not allowconnections. You can try to find or import another Web Part that does what youwant and that allows connections.

  • The zone that contains the WebPart does not allow connections.

  • The Web Parts were connected in shared view and so the connection cannot be changed in personal view. If you can, switch to shared view.

  • You do not have permission to make Web Part connections.

  • Web Part connections are not supported at the site.

I can't find a Web Part on the Web Part Pageon the Connections submenu, or the available Web Parts submenu isunavailable.

Only compatible Web Parts are availablefrom the Connections submenu. This situation can occur for one or more ofthe following reasons:

  • The Web Part you aretrying to connect to does not support making connections. Notall Web Parts aredesigned to be connected.

  • The Web Partyou are trying to connect from is not compatible with the Web Part you are trying to connectto because it has an incompatible Web Part type. This can occur for thefollowing reasons:

    • You are in personal view, the Web Part you are trying to connectfrom is a shared Web Part or personalized Web Part, and the WebPart you are trying to connect to is a private Web Part on the same Web Part Page.

    • The WebPart you are trying to connect from is a private Web Part, and the Web Part you aretrying to connect to is a shared Web Part or personalized Web Part on the same Web Part Page.

  • The Web Part you are trying to connect to or from allows only oneconnection. To create a new connection, you must first remove the currentconnection from that Web Part.

  • The Web Part youare trying to connect to is already connected to the Web Part you are trying to connect fromthrough a different connection type.Web Parts can have more than one connection, but each connection must be to a different Web Part.

  • The Web Part you are trying to connect to is notcompatible with the Web Part you are trying to connect from because the Web Part is required to run on either a client or server. There are two situations that can apply:

    • The Web Partyou are trying to connect to currently runs on the client, and the Web Part you aretrying to connect from runs on the server.

    • The Web Part you aretrying to connect to currently runs on the server, and the Web Part you are trying to connectfrom runs on the client.

    In this case, the Web Parts you aretrying to connect must both run either on the client or on the server.

For assistance, contact the site administrator.

I get the message "Web Part connections cannot be created atthis time. One or more Web Parts on this page contains more information aboutthe problem."

This message is displayed when there isa problem with the source code of the Web Part or the Web Part containsrun-time errors. To correct these problems, note the details of the problem and contact the Web Partdeveloper or your site administrator.

I'm having problemsfinding and connecting a List View Web Part.

Possible reasons include the following:

  • You changed the view of the list. Switching to a different view may disable Web Part connections that depend on columnsin the view.

  • Although most lists have corresponding List View Web Parts and can be connected, severallist types, including Issues and Surveys,are not supported.

  • Although most list column types aresupported in List Web Part connections, several list column types, including Multiple Lines of Textand Hyperlink (for filtering), are not supported.

I'm having problems connecting to a Web Part on anotherWeb Part Page.

Possible reasons include the following:

  • For performance or security reasons, the Web Part developer may have disabled connections to Web Parts on other Web Part pages.

  • The connection may be broken. Tryre-creating or editing the connection in acompatible HTML editor,such as Microsoft .

  • The Web Part Page you are trying to connect toor from may not exist on the same top-level site as your current Web Part Page. You can onlycreate Web Part connections between different Web Part Pages that are on the same top-level site.

  • The Web Part Page you are trying to connect toor from may not exist on the same internet domain as your current Web Part Page. You can onlycreate Web Part connections between different Web Part Pages that are on the same internet domain.
