How to Show all List Types in the Data-Viewer Web Part

Bamboo Data-Viewer Web Part fills this gap with a variety of capabilities contained in a single component: connect to Lists or Libraries across sites and site collections, SQL Server Tables or Views (even add, modify, and delete entries), Bamboo List Rollup Schemas, or Business Connectivity Services. Bamboo Data-Viewer Web Part is beyond just a simple grid view. The Data-Viewer Web Part allows you to customize the information displayed, providing the capability to tailor each instance of the Data-Viewer Web Part to a set audience.

Challenge

As you know, Data Viewer allows the user to select all list types to show data. One may not understand why the Data-Viewer Web Part shows an error when selecting Bamboo List Rollup data source. We realized that this issue happens when we get data from a Share Document or Wiki Document.  In this post, I’ll show you how to reproduce this issue and resolve it.
