I upgraded from EE 2.9.2 to 2.11.5

Everything is working good, except I get this error when I view a News entry at domain.com/news/news-entry-title:

Error Number: 1146

Table 'db_name.exp_low_variables_grid_field_27' doesn't exist

SELECT * FROM (`exp_low_variables_grid_field_27`) WHERE `entry_id` IN ('263') ORDER BY `row_order` asc

Filename: models/grid_model.php

Line Number: 413

This happens on every News entry, not just 263.

I can confirm there is no exp_low_variables_grid_field_27 – neither on local or production DB's

Why is the entry referencing this table? I'm not sure where the reference (from entry 263) is coming from or how to fix it.

Any help or advice how to remove this error would be appreciated.

  • Are you using grid_field_27 as search parameter in channel:entries tag or any of the {if} conditionals?

Seems related to this bug report. If you have a conditional checking for something like this:

{if grid_field:total_rows > 0}

try changing that to this:

{if '{grid_field:total_rows}' > 0}
