When you go to Lists & Searches Select NEW Then make sure to select the type of items you want to list. For example, if you created a table with "Vendor" and you want a list of all the vendor in your database.
Select a table from "What kind of items are you searching for?"
Go to LIST Tab and add the fields you want to show up on your results.
I am also getting this error. I have a form (Measurement Units) in which I capture two text fields and it's saving them to the DB correctly. However, when I create a 'table' List and add the two fields each to a column in the List View and publish the list through a module (or via direct link in the Menu), I only get this error.
