  1. Thank you very much for this instruction!
    unfortunately I receive an error when trying to add the exported webpart. it says that the list does not exist.
    Could you help me here? Thank you very much in advance!

  2. Hi,

    Can you show me the screen shot.


    1. Hi,
      sorry for my late reply, unfortunately I am not able to post a screenshot, here you have google pic, it's the same error:

      I found out that this only works when you’re viewing a subsites information on a top level site.

      Maybe there is the issue - anyway thanks for your post & help!
      Regards, Sabrina

  3. Hey,

    This works great with PDF and EXCEL documents. But i get an error "File not found" when trying to open POWERPOINT or WORD documents. And when trying to open DOCUMENT SET i get an error "An unexpected error has occurred".

    Any ideas how to fix this?

  4. Hello,

    It is different matter. Did you install office web app? Should search on google how to open word/pp using office web app.


    1. We have used office web app for a long time and in other cases it works great. So I believe it's not about that.

  5. Hello,

    I have the same problem Sabrina. I followed all the steps to export the webpart, but then when I tried to add it to my site, I get the error saying "List does not exist. The page you selected contains a list that does not exist. It may have been deleted by another use."

  6. Thanks for your comment,

    DOCUMENT SET i get an error "An unexpected error has occurred". => If your library don't have document set, can it run well ?
    I tried to add it to my site => did you try with teamsite ?


  7. Hi,
