    Hi there,

    I have noticed an error in my Forms where I’m using vLookup. This vLookup gets items from another List which have just passed the 5000 item limit threshold. Now every time I’m going to the tab which shows the vLookup field, there is an error coming up:

    Error in query for the field “vLookupEmails”: The attempted operation is prohibited because it exceeds the list view threshold enforced by the administrator.

    I found that in 2015 you had updated the spjs-utility.js to handle large lists (SPJS-Utility updated with support for querying large lists) but our spjs-utility.js version is 1.328 and the latest I saw on the download repository was 1.257

    Any suggestions?

    To fix this you must index the column you use in the query in your vLookup configuration. Go to list setting in the child list and add it to the Indexed columns.

    SPJS-utlity.js version is not relevant, but it is now part of the DFFS package and not downloadable separately.

    Great! Adding the query field to the indexed columns did the trick.

    Thanks Alex!
