Exceeds Threshold Enforced by the Administrator - what does this mean?

Can anyone tell me what this means?  




My work around is to make a gallary with just the filter...  GalleryDV_invisible


And then my visible Gallery:

SortByColumns(GalleryDV_invisible.AllItems,"DV_RevisionNumber", Descending)

Why does this not work as one statement?


The results are only a few items.  Never more than 15 records.

Hi @martinav 

This is what I think is happening. A single formula that both sorts and filters the Drawing_Vault list results in a query that causes SharePoint to lock the underlying SQL Server table. This is the cause of the "Exceeds Threshold Enforced by the Administrator" error. Separating the filter and sort operation into 2 different places in your app simplifies the query and prevents this error from happening. The post here contains a bit more detail on this behaviour.
