Invoke-PnPSiteTemplate - Error: The formula refers to a column that does not exist.

Occasional Visitor

Hi everyone,


this is my first post here, so please have mercy with me in case I forgot to write down important information ;)


So my goal is to create a template from a SharePoint site and then apply it to a manually created SharePoint site.


This is the way I created the SharePoint template (the template was successfully created). I tried it once with more and once fewer parameters to see if it makes a difference while applying the template.


Get-PnPSiteTemplate -Out C:\SharePointTemplates\Germany-Urlaub.pnp










Get-PnPSiteTemplate -Out C:\SharePointTemplates\Germany-Urlaub.pnp






Then I sued the following command to apply the template (obviously I switched to the manually created SharePoint site)


Invoke-PnPSiteTemplate -Path C:\SharePointTemplates\Germany-Urlaub.pnp


After I received the error I used "Get-PnPException" to get more details about the error. Prior to that, I tried to create a log file with the following command (for some kind of reason the log file is always empty):


Set-PnPTraceLog -On -LogFile C:\SharePointTemplates\log.txt


Anyways the extended error message with "Get-PnPException" is the following one. I do not understand which column is meant. How can I find out?
