Unexpected end of file looking for </asp:Content> tag.

I've modified an editform.aspx form in SharePoint Designer. I modified the dispform.aspx which works perfectly but the Edit form throws up this error:
An error occurred during the processing of /ess/Lists/Team Member Service Form/EditForm_copy(1).aspx. Unexpected end of file looking for </asp:Content> tag.
What I modified was highlighting 5 fields with a yellow background, deleting a row and adding a new one.

When I go back into designer, it points to this section:
<asp:Content ContentPlaceHolderId="PlaceHolderPageTitle" runat="server">
      <SharePoint:ListFormPageTitle runat="server"/>
</asp:Content>


What can I be doing wrong here?

1) Remove the ZoneTemplate and webpartzone closing tag after the PlaceHolderBodyRightMargin

<asp:Content ContentPlaceHolderId="PlaceHolderBodyRightMargin" runat="server">
<div class='ms-areaseparatorright'><IMG SRC="/_layouts/images/blank.gif" width=8 height=100% alt=""></div>
</asp:Content>
</ZoneTemplate></WebPartPages:WebPartZone></asp:Content>

2) Zone template should come inside the web part zone

<asp:Content ContentPlaceHolderId="PlaceHolderMain" runat="server">
<table cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0 id="onetIDListForm">
 <tr>
  <td>
 <WebPartPages:WebPartZone runat="server" FrameType="None" ID="Main" Title="loc:Main">
      </WebPartPages:webpartzone><ZoneTemplate>

I'm sorry. It's now pulling up the form but giving me a web part error. I think i put it in the wrong place. Does part (2) replace part (1), which is at the end of the code? or at the beginning of the code?

Ok, I modified my editform.aspx page with highlighting the few fields i needed to. Works perfectly. The problem i was having was with a text field i was trying to add in designer. I added a merged row to display this text: "Information below should only be entered if changes to Department, Job Title, ..."

This row is what causes my problem with the closing tag. Should i be adding this text a different way? I don't want a field. I only want the text to display in order to separate these fields from the others. Works perfectly on the DispForm.aspx page.

I've created a workaround on the edit form by adding a text field. The Display form field I added a row then entered the text. When I tried to do the same in the Edit form, I kept getting the error about the closing ZoneTemplate tag.

I have to believe the workaround is not ideal but adding the row is my downfall on the Edit form.

Is there a fix or do i have to deal with the workaround and the 2 different views?

Workaround works and unfortunately, no more time available to work on this one piece.

Hi

I had a similar problem with a form I was trying to edit, but I have no idea what I have missed. Can anybody help me with this one?

I was playing about with it because I wanted to add a row for the field 'Requested By'. That came up with these errors, so I deleted the row that I had added, thinking that would cure it (albeit without adding the field) but the problem still occurred when I'd done that!

Any help or guidance would be appreciated.

Thanks
Chris
