Could Not Find Field Error in Access

Hi, I am using Access 2010 to link to a SharePoint 2013 list and manage the list, say, Employees list. My issue is, on my Access form, I get the "Could not find field." error when I update some of my form field data. Strangely enough, it only affects some, but not all, records on the list and affects all form controls except text boxes.

Can anyone help?

Thanks,

Is there any way for you to grab a copy of Access 2013 and see if the problem still occurs?

Hi All,

I think I found the problem for this issue. What was causing the error was a phone text field which was limited to 20 characters which was insufficient in some records. Why would such field-size overflow throw up an error?

Well, I just discovered by digging in deeper that in the background there was a running SharePoint workflow that was designed to populate the phone field automatically every time a new record was created by looking up an Employee table. The overflow caused a failure in the workflow to update this field so it in essence locked this record and caused the error described above.

I simply bumped up the field-size limit to 100 chars and the problem went away.

Thank you for your suggestion Jamie.
