If you are using SharePoint 2010, and you are trying to open an Excel file from a list, AND you come across the error above (also suggesting that you “Wait a few minutes and try performing this operation again”), the solution may be easier than you think.

In SharePoint 2010, when trying to edit a page, you might get something close tothe following error: Sys.InvalidOperationException: Could not find UpdatePanel with ID ‘{yourID}’. If it is being updated dynamically then it must be inside another UpdatePanel. Most likely, someone was trying to update the page, and cancelled it before it was finished. Either […]

When I was moving a site from one server to another, using TFS to deploy the reports to a Report Library in SharePoint 2010, I got the following error: The shared data source ‘‘ for the report server or SharePoint site is not valid The fix is not pretty, but it’s fairly easy to fix […]

Here’s the scenario – I had just restored a new site collection, changing much of the design. All backups seemed to go well, and all meta-data and security was still in tact after the restoration.
