Hi,

I'm currently trying to use Data View Web Part that would use a web service as a data source. I'm not getting an error while connecting to the web service on Data Source Library window but when I try to view the results through show data I'm getting the unhelpful error below. The was able to retrieve data directly from the search service of MOSS but through the dataview web part web service connection it seems that it is saying that there's an error within the query.

Error:
The server returned a non-specific error when trying to get data from the source. Check the format and content of your query and try again. If the problem persists, contact the server administrator.

I already looked for some possible resolution for this problem but unfortunately none of them worked for me.

Post for a possible work around but they didn’t work.

I hope someone out there might be able to help me resolve this OOB issue.

Thanks,
