Creating new list item doesn't automatically insert the item in the DB

Mar 10, 2010 at 9:36 AM

Hi Brian,

When I add or delete an item in my sharepoint list, the new item isn't inserted and the deleted item isn't removed in/from the appropiate table. None the less, when I update an item, the record is updated in the db.

When I synchronize the slam content in the configuration panel the item has been uploaded/ correctly. 

In this list I have a workflow sending a mail and creating a task everytime a new item is inserted.

I already adjusted my web.config but no extra messages are shown in the event and messagelog tables.

      <add name="SLAMLogger" value="4" />

Some help understanding this problem would be great.

With kind regards,

When you add or delete do you see events logged in the SLAMEventLog table?  If the event isn't logged then it didn't occur, meaning SharePoint likely did not execute the event receiver.

Hi Brian,

No record was added in the SlamEventLog.  Is there any other way to find out why this didn't work?

I forgot the event log of the server, this is the posted message every time an item was added or deleted
