Error on Site Creation from Template with calculated columns

If you try creating a custom WSS 3.0 or MOSS site template that has lists with calculated columns you may receive an error message. Nonetheless the site has been created but some functionality like the tab in the top navigation bar may be missing. To fix this issue and have the site fully functional do the following:
  • Click on the link to go back to the parent site.
  • Click on 'View All Site Content' and page down to locate the newly created site.
  • Click to access the site.
  • Click on Site Actions / Site Settings and reactivate the top navigation bar inheritance from parent.
  • Cpoy the URL to get the site name and navigate back to the parent site.
  • In Site Actions / Site Settings / top navigation bar - add the child site. Remove the suffix and the prefix leaving only the site name between slashes /MySubSiteName/ and Okay the operation.
  • That's it. You have your site back in business.
