Read error on file when saving list as template


Hello everyone,

Today I’ll talk about a problem that may occur when you try to create a list template.

It may happen that you have this error message

Read error on file _catalogs/lt/yourtemplatename.stp

This error occurs if you have exceeded the number of allowed lookup for list views (default 8)

To save your template list, you can change the value of the threshold in the central administration:

  • Go to the Central Administration
  • Select your web application
  • In the “General settings” menu click on “Resource Throttling” and increase the “List View Lookup Threshold” field

Hope this helps
