Data View: Cannot insert new item form
Hello there, I'm wrestling with the problem of creating a website form by which it should be possible to submit data to a sharepoint list. I have gone to the root of my site collection where I have created a new custom list, added all the custom columns I would like and added some dummy content (two rows). Now I want create a form in which my frontend users (anonymous) can create new rows to the list. It's a conference registration list where the customers should be able to register for the next conference. I would like full control over the layout of the form and integrate it seamlessly with the rest of my site design. Guided by this video I have tried to create a such form: The problem is this: when I have inserted the data view into the webpart zone, chosen my prefered list and chosen the fields I would like to be contained by the form and press the "insert selected fields as... " button the possibility of "new item form" is not available. Why is that so? This seems to be the right thing to do. Problems with the permissions? I have set anonymous users to be able to create new list items for the relevant list. Note: When I proceed the same way in the list-folder and for example open the "newForm.aspx" in my custom list and insert a data view, the option to insert a new item form is actually available. What is the difference? Any help will be greatly appreciated! Kind regards Michael

Anyone? I can't believe this can't be as simple as you would expect. All I need is a data entry form to add content to a list via defined fields. Maybe just point me in the right direction, if I'm completely off :) - Regards Michael

Hi Michael, I can insert new item form in ordinary page (not just newForm.aspx page) in data view, maybe it something wrong with the rows you selected to insert. How about insert a custom list Form (Tools > SharePoint Controls > Custom list Form > choose the list you need > check New item form box > OK. Then delete the rows you don’t need. If the problem still existed please elaborate what columns you created in the list and which site template are you using. Thanks. Best regards. Emir

Amazing! I made the quite basic mistake of trying to modify the layout page rather than just creating a new page from Share Point Designer. A bit embarassing, but I guess that's what it's like to get to know a new system ;) But thanks a million - this actually works exactly as I want. I created the custom list form in a new aspx-page. Now the only problem is to how to give the end user some sort of confirmation that the registration is registered, rather than just reloading a new form page. Any hints on where to look on that? It would be really great, if the user could get a confirmation mail too. Kind regards! Michael
