Error with creating Document Library in SharePoint
I got this error while creating a document library in sharepoint.
A list, survey, discussion board, or document library with the specified title already exists in this Web site. Please choose another title.
Here is my coding.
SPSite site = new SPSite(url); SPWeb oWebsite = site.OpenWeb(); oWebsite.AllowUnsafeUpdates = true; Guid customListID = oWebsite.Lists.Add(docLibraryName, docLibraryName, SPListTemplateType.DocumentLibrary); oWebsite.Update(); oWebsite.AllowUnsafeUpdates = false;
forget to mention that there is no such document library with the name I am trying to add.
Use SharePoint designer and connect to that site. You may find that a folder with that name has been created which is causing the code to think that the list already exists. Delete that folder and you should be all set.
