Hi,

I'm not able open a SPO list in the SharePoint designer that have more then 15000 items, none of the views running into 5000 threshold issue. I need to modify list forms in SharePoint Designer. In the designer I tried to get to the list from List and Libraries and from All Files->List->Custom_List but none of them worked and I'm keep getting "The attempted operation is prohibited because it exceeds the list view threshold enforced by admin".

Please suggest?

 

Thanks,

-Sal

I'm having the same issue. Would be good to get a reply from Microsoft. Can SPD not handle lists over 5000 items? In which case it's time to look for a non-SharePoint solution for me. 

I had the same problem and opened,a ticket. msft got back to me the next day in an email and saiid they found the 'root cause' . I can now open my list in SPD.

Has it been fixed for you? If not, yo may need to open a ticket. Ticket number was 17395226 with isha if that help anyone.
