View won't accept field because it has been deleted as a column option RRS feed

  • Question

  • What does that mean?  Are we not allowed to have two-option type fields on a view!?

    Can I remedy this setting?

    "The a_8fb2bb752667e311a4786c3be5a85b38.new_adds column is no longer a valid column because it has been deleted as a column option. You need to remove this column and, if you want, add a different one."

  • Better than that I can tell you what the problem was.  I had just created a trial site for development.  I created a custom entity and customized Account & Contact.  This problem occurred on the default view of the custom entity.  This wasn't the only bad behaviour I was witnessing.  Another was that I couldn't get to custom entity to create records.  Eventually I went back around to my Office 365 account.  Lo and behold, I had never been awarded a CRM license!  Doing so fixed all the problems.

    I've set up dozens of these things and never had this happen before.  New to CRM 2013?
