Web compatibility check: Schema errors

This article lists Schema errors that you may encounter when you run the Compatibility Checker, and provides information that can help you resolve the errors.

For general information about Compatibility Checker errors, see the article Web compatibility check General errors.



Use the Lookup Wizard to create or modify a lookup field

Many Schema errors are caused by problems with lookup fields. These procedures explain how to launch the Lookup Wizard in Datasheet view to fix these problems by creating or modifying a lookup field.

Create a lookup field in Datasheet view

  1. Open the table to which you want to add a lookup field, and select the last column, labeled Click to Add.
  2. Click the arrow next to Click to Add, and then click Lookup & Relationship.
  3. Follow the steps of the Lookup Wizard to create the lookup field that you need.

Modify a lookup field in Datasheet view

  1. Open the table and select the lookup field that you want to modify.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • On the Fields tab, in the Properties group, click Modify Lookups.
    • Right-click the lookup field, and then click Modify Lookups.
  3. Follow the steps of the Lookup Wizard to fix your specific problem.

ACCWeb105003

Error text    Column data type for value list lookups must be 'Text' to be compatible with the web.

What it means    The indicated lookup uses a list that is not supported in a web database. The value list must be bound to a text column on the server.

What to do    Open the table in Design view, and change the data type of the lookup field to Text. If Design view is not available, delete the lookup field, and then use the Lookup Wizard to re-create it.

Error text    Lookup row sources with clause clauses are incompatible with the Web.

What it means    The indicated lookup field uses a query that contains a WHERE clause, which is not supported on the Web.

What to do    Open the table in Design view and remove the WHERE clause from the Row Source property of the relevant lookup field. If Design view is not available, delete the lookup field, and then use the Lookup Wizard to re-create it.

ACCWeb105018

Error text    A primary key which is a lookup is incompatible with the web.

What it means    The indicated table has a primary key which is a lookup field that refers to another table, which is not supported on the Web.

What to do    Open the table in Design view, and change the Control Type property for the lookup field to Textbox (on the Lookup tab). Then, open the Relationships Window and delete any relationships in which the lookup field is on the many- side of the relationship (the arrow points away from the lookup field).

If Design view and the Relationships window are not available, do the following:

  1. Create a new blank database (not a web database).
  2. Import the tables that you need from the original database into the new database.
  3. Make the required changes in the new database.
  4. In the original database, delete the tables, and then import them from the new database.

Error text    Field data type is incompatible with the Web.

What it means    The indicated field has a data type that is not supported on the web, such as OLE Object.

What to do    Recreate the field as one of the supported data types:

ACCWeb107001

Error text    Composite indexes are incompatible with the Web.

What it means    The indicated table has a composite primary key (a key consisting of more than one field). You can only use an Autonumber field as the primary key for a Web table. You cannot use composite indexes on the Web.

What to do    If the composite index was for a primary key, create an Autonumber primary key for the indicated table. Then, create a record validation rule to make sure that the data in the original fields is unique. For a more thorough explanation of using a data macro for this purpose, see the Access Team blog post Composite keys in web databases through data macros.

Error text    Table with more than one Attachment field is incompatible with the Web.

What it means    The indicated table contains more than one attachment field, which causes failure during a publish operation, and is therefore incompatible with the Web.

What to do    Consider storing all the attachments for each record in a single attachment field. If you need more than one attachment field per record, for each additional attachment field create a new table that contains only the attachment field and an ID field, and then link the new table and the original table by using the Lookup Wizard.

Error text    Calculated Field expression has an input field of a type incompatible with the Web, such as AutoNumber, Memo or Binary.

  • Yes/No
  • Date/Time

What to do    Change the existing primary key in Design view so that it has the correct data type and Field Size; or, create a new primary key for the table, using the AutoNumber data type.
