Deleting item from list returns error

I have a custom list in SharePoint 2007. I am trying to delete some items from there but it returns the following error.

Cannot complete this action.

Please try again.

I have full admin rights on the site and the list.

Can anyone please help?

Hi! Do you have ItemDeleting event receiver for this list? If yes, it may prevent item from deleting. You can check list event receivers using SharePoint Manager 2007.

No there aren't any events attached to the list.

Then it looks like a kind of bug, do you have SharePoint 2007 SP2 installed? Can you provide stack trace for the error?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Can you please tell me how will I find the stack trace for the error. I have tried this by setting the customerror = 'Off' but still no joy.

Also where will I find if we have Sharepoint 2007 SP2 installed?

Thanks

To get stack trace you need to set
<SafeMode .. CallStack="true" ../>
To find out about SP2, I guess you should check installed updated for SharePoint in Add or Remove programs console.

I have tried 'CallStack="true" but still the same

Then try to find error message in SharePoint log files (Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\LOGS) - it should contain full stacktrace.

I have checked the logs folder. unfortunately the error is not loged there nor that in Event viewer.

Hi! That's very strange, because every unhandled exception should be logged by SharePoint. Are sure you searched the right file? And what about SP2?
