Loading sharepoint list via RPC-calls/owssvr.dll - works on main site but not sub-site

I am using QV 9.00. and trying to load a sharepoint list.
I get it to work against the main site, but as soon as I try against a sub-site list I get an error message.

I am using the Wizard, Web Files -> Internet File -> enter the address:
-> checks in "XML" and it shows an error message:
"XML Document must have a top level element. On line number: 0. On Column number: 0 System ID <some text I cant read because it cuts if off...>."

Is there any tricks to writing the sub-sites address or list name? I am using the url under Site Settings "Site URL: XXXX"
Have tried multiple main site lists now and they all seem to work. Must be my URL or sub-site settings, or?...

Any ideas please? Getting desperate...
Kind Regards,

PS. Thanks to Nimish Shah in this thread: http://community.qlik.com/forums/t/24166.aspx for getting me this far! DS.

Ah, how silly!

I had to have ID in the list - actually thought of this but had "ISSUE ID" not "ID" - as soon as I added this it worked like a charm.

Not sure if I should remove this thread, but perhaps someone stumbles across the same issue!

Hi gislo,

Could you please elaborate with an example?

This post has been helpful for me: I was suffering the same problem.

Qlik can retrieve data from Sharepoint List VIEWS. If no specific view is selected in the URL, the default view will be used.

And the ID field of the list must be selected in the View. Otherwise it will not work.

In Sharepoint, I added the ID field of the list to the view (default) that I was trying to retrieve... and voilá!

This hint of Josetxo helped for me, thanks!
