One or more field types are not installed properly. Go to List settings page to delete these fields error in SharePoint 2013

This SharePoint 2013 tutorial, we will discuss how to solve One or more field types are not installed properly. Go to the List settings page to delete these fields which come in SharePoint 2013.

Recently we are working in a MOSS 2007 to SharePoint 2013 application, which we were doing through the database upgrade approach. When we open a particular SharePoint 2013 site collection, we got an error which says:

One or more field types are not installed properly. Go to List settings page to delete these fields.

The error also we got when we visit the site settings page and try to change Master Page from the Look and Feel section.

One or more field types are not installed properly. Go to List settings page to delete these fields

After a lot of googles, I found out that the problem was there with a hidden list know as “Relationships List” in SharePoint.

We followed the below steps to resolve the issue.

First, we deactivated “SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure” from the site collection. Then we deactivated all the publishing features from all the subsites. You can check out an article Enable SharePoint 2013 Server Publishing Feature using PowerShell.

Then we deleted the “Relationships List” from the site. You can open the hidden list in the browser like below:

http://win-pfcp2dgt8di/sites/EnjoySharePoint/Relationships%20List/AllItems.aspx

Then go to the List settings page and delete the list in SharePoint 2013.

Now go the SharePoint 2013 Site collection and activate “SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure” again.

Now we are able to open the site collection as well as the subsite in SharePoint 2013.

One or more field types are not installed properly SharePoint 2010

Recently while working with the SharePoint object model to retrieve items from a SharePoint document library, I face this error: “One or more field types are not installed properly. Go to the list settings page to delete these fields.”

I was retrieving items based on the SharePoint column internal name. I was using this article to retrieve the internal name of a SharePoint column name. I retrieve the column name as “First%5Fx0020%5FName”. And my SharePoint object model code as:

String firstname = "Fewlines4Biju";
SPQuery objquery = new SPQuery();
objquery.Query = "<Where><Eq><FieldRef Name=’First%5Fx0020%5FName’ /><Value Type=’Number’>" + firstname + "</Value></Eq></Where>";

Here I got the error when the above code executed.

Actually here the problem is with the %5F which internally represents underscore (_). So when I changed the code like below it worked.

objquery.Query = "<Where><Eq><FieldRef Name=’First_x0020_Name’ /><Value Type=’Number’>" + firstname + "</Value></Eq></Where>";

This will resove the error.
