HI @AngelaAdams-9456,

Please check if there are some lookup columns(list column or site column) in existing list.

Try to create a new list from list template without lookup column to compare the result.

Per my test, even if I have a lookup column in the source list, I can successfully create a new list based on it.

The lookup column in your source list appears to be corrupted. Please check it.

Hi, @JulieWang-MSFT. Thank you for your quick reply. There are no lookup columns in the list. I did go back to the parent content types (they did have lookup column). Once i removed the lookup column from the parent content type, I received a different error: The provided action definition contains too many stages. Parameter name: scriptDefinition.

For additional context, this list has 4 content types and several views. Recreating it again would be a significant time sink. I would love to be able to save it (or the entire site) as a template, but that is not an option.

Do you have any suggestions for resolving / troubleshooting (that doesn't require recreating the list with all the necessary views)?

thank you

Hi @AngelaAdams-9456,

In order to get a better forum experience, we changed your answer to a comment.

If possible, please provide the detailed list structure(content types and lookup columns), and I could test it for you.

Thank you @JulieWang-MSFT. Here is the structure. Each custom content type has a parent content type of Item.
