I've seen this issue before on one of the form in our web application. After checking with IBM PMR team, they replied that most probably the form has corrupted.

You should try to redeploy the template, or create a new form then copy-paste the designs into it, then see if the same problem reoccured

I was called in for a similar problem. Someone's email not not receiving in-line pictures with that very same error;

ERROR: Field is too large (32k) or View's column & selection formulas are too large.

1. Fixup made no difference (always start here)

2. Compacting made no difference (sometimes can)

3. Replace design (BINGO... corrupt design element) This is suggested by Neo. Good call.

load compact -c -i -D {filepath}

This compacts with

-c = copy

-i = ignore errors

-D = delete view indexes


it deletes the buggy documents

I tried multiple techniques. Including a view to show all by noteID. I tried tools from Yria, and Notesman as well. The issue seems that you can't access these documents via Notes API at all so you can't delete them via script. The best method is to compact the databases. as per mr. kogan above.

Find out how many hidden Text type fields are there. Check if they hold a @dblookup(...) in the "Default Value" of the field. Put the @dblookup in the field properties > Formula Window. Make the fiels Editable and not computed. Cause that too sometime gives the error.The Text field has crossed its data limit thus resulting in the error. Changing it a Textlist and then putting the formula in right place resolves the error.

After a lot of frustration I managed to eliminate this error by reducing the number of mail rules of the client - worked a charm !

Fixup -V helps (Domino 8.5.2FP3), all other tips failed, even ScanEZ couldn't delete the document.
